I have been working at Hormel full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Better pay than Seaboard, Smith-field, Farmland, Swift (JBS), or Tyson.
Much less stress than average packing house jobs ...

Cons

Unless you have a frat brother, uncle, or god-parent as a VP, or are a minority, you will find promotions VERY slow ...and unless you really understand being on your feet 8 to 10 hours a day working in cold cold environments six to seven days a week ..you might be in for a shock ..

Advice to Management

Take the patronage out of the internal job bid system, and make it a level playing field, stop hiding choice jobs for favorite employees.
Quit trying to bring in young college kids who are completely over whelmed by working 10 plus hours days 6 and 7 days a week, and poach more employees from other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your bad employees so you have room for good ones. Easier said than done, I know.

    I have been working at Hormel as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Mostly good people to learn from. Give you lots of responsibility and tasks to complete. What you do is value added for the company in most cases. Learn a lot about yourself as a manager and how well you will do in this type of field.

    Cons

    I don't have anything to write.
