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

    Pros

    Some very nice people in some departments, decent pay to start, decent healthcare, they pay for training

    Cons

    Overall bad attitude and end of the world view from management, lack of leadership and cooperation, overbearing corporate culture, stigma of the former Farmland Industries fiasco does not help with local relations in Kansas City. They tend to hire people with no personality.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people, this is the food industry act like its the 21st Century, update your equipment and facilities.

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

    Pros

    Meeting New people is allways a must and there are alot of new people that work for this company,
    The smiles and work surroundings kept everyone in a happy place. There was alot of good humor to keep everyone moving.

    Cons

    Long hours, and got pushed alot to get the jobs done. Some supervisors Had swollen heads and Treated some people Wrongly. Shortly after they were dismissed and It worked out.
    Sometimes it was very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Have the day shift finish their work and not push it onto the ones that work the night shift so that they are so bogged down with work that they have to stay late to finish their job.
