Get to know your employees strengths and weaknesses and put them in a position to be successful. Develop and recruit more compassionate leaders. Run morale cripplers out of the company.

    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.

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