    Helping in the industrial food processing industry. Working with live animals, and maintenance of 20th century equipment. Guaranteed work every day of the week.

    Consider having a union representative on the job site, and less restrictive top down management dictation. Plus allow modern smartphone access on the workplace.

    I have been working at Cal-Maine Foods as an intern

    Pros

    Young leadership mixed with seasoned leaders. Young does everything by the book and exemplifies the opportunities in Cal Maine. Old know tricks and tips due to experience and provide proof that Cal Maine is worth making a career with. Flexible.

    Cons

    Long hours. Not paid hourly. Can be hard to put in extra time when you're not getting paid for it.

    Advice to Management

    Change intern pay to hourly. That is the standard in the industry and a salary base really provides no benefit to the employee while providing little to the company.

    Pros

    Cal-Maine has a relatively laid back atmosphere. Everyone has a job to do, and mostly, everyone tries to have a good time while doing it.
    Benefits are good, medical, dental, life insurance, holiday pay etc. Very family oriented, great management. Locally and upper.

    Cons

    Early and often long hours. But it is what you make of it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I look forward to growth in this company.
