    Pros

    You get paid every week and I got to work first shift. That's it am afraid there are no other positives it's all bad from here on out

    Cons

    You had to be there by 6 am and go threw a security check point before you could park that was annoying you are severely underpaid the whole building smell like poop that's been left out in the sun all day. Management is mean and doesn't care about you everyone hates being there it's loud and super cold. It is truly the worst place I ahve ever worked in my life DO NOT WORK HERE!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better!

    I worked at Armour full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cold work environment with structured management. Sometimes overtime is mandatory. Good benefits. And during the holidays you get a Turkey as a bonus.

    Cons

    Cold and dry work environment. Colds and sore throats are common. Facilities stink from the outside especially when its hot.

    Advice to Management

    Working clothes with management you can see they're pretty cool people. But also working close to other employees you can see management is strict.

    I worked at Armour (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Job Security, nice clean building with parking garage, health club, cafeteria, easily accessible from the highway, regularly get free product samples to take home

    Cons

    Very harsh and unfriendly cultural and working environment. Not work life balance friendly, hard to get time off

    Advice to Management

    The harsh environment starts from the top down, employees would be more likely to stay and not hate their jobs if management would ease up a bit and be more friendly.

    I worked at Armour full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you can finish you overloaded route you can expect Monday - Friday work week.

    Cons

    Tried to make deliveries in a broken down fleet on a over sized route. This is because of shortage of drivers, most quit because you have to forget about having a life cause you can't earn enough money working less than 50 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the fleet. Increase you base pay and commissions. Take the focus off Management and show more care about Employees. Create a decent work environment.

    Pros

    Great company benefits, not bad pay

    Cons

    Local management plays favorites and if you are not friends with the right people there are no advancement opportunities. Also, if you befriend the "wrong" people, person, or department the same management will make your life difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Personal growth and no favoritism. We are all a team working for the same end result.

    I have been working at Armour full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Decent pay. Nice office environment as the building is relatively new. Some groups seem to be great (AP), Customer Service.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is fast declining. People are relatively nasty to work with. As some other reviewer noted--there is obvious favoritizm for the employees that have been with the company longer. With the change of some upper management, the environment in some groups changed to being cut-throat. There are groups of employees that formed a while ago and as a new hire, don't expect to be let in. As a result, you may end up being a loner in a big open office. The information flow is terrible. If there is an issue in the job that you are doing and the other group encountered the issue, you will most likely find it from another person (most likely from the one who has been here longer than you). At that point, the person will "volunteer" to do all the research for you, so you are left with no knowledge of the issue. As a result, there is no learning opportunity nor growth. Departments are territorial and managers hoard the projects. So, if you are someone who just wants to get by and get paid, this company may be for you. Otherwise, I will suggest--flee from it.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of declining corporate culture.
