I worked at Morningstar Foods as a contractor (More than 10 years)
They will train you to get your class A big rig license. You can earn about $13,000, more or less, in a 10 week season (sometimes seasons can go longer, more money). And you can save most of your money because you can live in the bunk house. Pay has gone up over the years because of increased efficiency in dispatches coordinated with harvesting, but that means more drive time, so you are working more for the increase.
Long shifts, 12 or 16 hours per day, 6 or 7 days a week. Living away from home in a bunk house at a processing plant, which is actually ok because you have no time except to drive, eat and sleep, and the combination of high hours and no life means you keep the money you earn.
Advice to Management
Please increase your prices to the clients so that drivers' portion is more valuable.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Morningstar Foods (Naperville, IL) in February 2008.
Very easy going interview
