No opinion of CEO

I worked at Hormel full-time

Pros

they have great training program to develop you for a recent college grad
the pay is decent. really isn't as great as some people put it considering amount of hours you work

Cons

you will work for a lot of incompetent managers which can be very very stressful
long hours and no work life balance
small city with barely anything to do for young professionals
barely any room for growth with no diversity what so ever

Advice to Management

develop a better way for work life balance
evaluate your managers. most are just talkers

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

    Pros

    None. Working with this manager is awful.

    Cons

    This company is prejudice. This is not a good company to work for. Fortune 500 but treats hourly people with no respect.

    Advice to Management

    The HR dept . is useless and will not take your complaints seriously.

    "Decent place to work. Best if you're right out of college"

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

    Pros

    Good pay. Good benefits. If you're right out of college you can have a great career. They do a great job of providing training. They're very concerned about safety. Very financially conservative and stable company. They have a lot of long time employees.

    Cons

    It's a hard place to fit in if you're midcareer and you have ideas outside of the way they do it. Not a lot of forward movement if you're in the smaller plants. There seems to be a lot of young people far in their career that have big egos.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of learning to recognize the people who work hard want to move forward and provide them with opportunities for advancement. And get over yourself. It's just food.
