Pros

The job is interesting, great benefits, pay is OK depending on the position held. Good people to work with and stable job if you want to keep it.

Cons

Hourly associate turnover
Recruiting practices for Hourly associates need improvement
Low pay for hourly workers
Annual raises are non-existent or below inflation

Advice to Management

Implement a pay plan that rewards seniority in the company. Currently, workers get paid the same hourly rate no matter how many years they have been there. There is a difference in the worth of a 6 month employee and a 10 year employee. Get rid of incompetent leadership where appropriate.

    I have been working at Perdue full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Highly motivated toward providing customers with quality, fresh poultry. Family owned and operated, in business since 1920. Opportunities for advancement available for motivated employees.

    Cons

    Local plant is under-staffed, requiring hourly associates to multi-task in order for timely production. C
    urrently on a four-day work week, which is adversely affecting hourly paychecks. Raises are currently frozen.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more competent associates. Reward current employees for jobs well done.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They role out the red carpet when they hire you on and relocate you if necessary. It was close to home, but the area isn't very nice.

    Cons

    There are days that many employees literally dread coming to work. The management style is management by fear and intrepidation. I personnally knew of coworkers who had to go on anti-anxiety medication as a result of working there. I knew of one small pocket of satisfied employees, but the vast majority were and are very dissatisfied. Stay far away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and start over. The old style of management that seems to be typical on the Eastern Shore does not work, and the company is suffering for it.
