    "My experience with Cargill was a very worthwhile and learning experience."

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Cargill is the amount of knowledge and experience you'll will gain in a short amount of time, as well as the quality of the skill base one will acquire.

    Cons

    Some things that Cargill lacked was the ability of proper training, meaning people in new positions would ultimately have to train themselves and learn from their mistakes with upper management looking at the mistakes and not giving guidance of how to correct the problems.

    Advice to Management

    My advice with upper management would be more cross training among different positions so that co-workers don't have to be so reliant on one person especially if that person isn't available.

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

    Pros

    Decent wages
    Union plant
    Work isn't very difficult
    Double time on Sundays
    Triple time when scheduled to work on a holiday

    Cons

    Go long stretches (2+ months) with no days off
    Safety is lacking
    Management pushes production over employee safety
    7 day work weeks and very rarely get holidays off

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to work the hours that the maintenance and production crew works to fully understand how hard the 7 day schedule is. Management gets weekends and holidays off while we are at work.
