Pros

The company has been in existence for a long time, and is in an industry that will continue to be necessary. Many of the headquarters staff are good to work with. The company is successful at what it does.

Cons

Managers are rewarding employees who do minimal or marginal work. Communication is overkill for some things and nonexistent for others. The HR polices are not being handled consistently among employees - much favoritism. Benefits are poor compared to other large companies.

Advice to Management

Train the managers on basic management techniques, such as coaching, communication, delegation, discipline, improving morale, etc. Improve benefits to match other public companies.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They are union which offers some assistance to keeping the management on a level field. They also offer a 401K plan and a pension thru the unions. The health plans are okay just alittle expensive to pay for.

    Cons

    Poor management, no communication, all about the numbers. It's growing too fast and its taking away from the employees. It is no longer an employee friendly company.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics and forget about the numbers. Communicate better with the employees and be more of the employee and family friendly company it once was and not the conglomerent that it has become.

    I have been working at Darling International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always have steady work. Management is family oriented. Good health insurance. Paid holidays. Local runs. Home every night. Work 4 days a week. Overtime every week

    Cons

    Manager can be hard to to deal with at times. Notes written about accounts by drivers are not regarded. You have to work in the elements

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to what your employees are saying and take some actions based on our input.
