    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Only pro would be discounted pork products

    Cons

    -No advancement opportunities
    -"Good Ole' Boy" atmosphere
    -Can't get promoted unless someone dies or you personally know management
    -They treat their employees like crap!
    -The company values the "sink or swim" concept.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should stop treating their employees as if they can be replaced in a second just so they can make the most profits. If you treat employees as if they are their most valuable assets, then turnover would be low and you wouldn't have to deal with constant threats of unionization. WOULD LOVE TO SEE LARRY POPE ON UNDERCOVER BOSS......he will see the REAL company versus what is seen on the corporate financial forms.

    Pros

    Good Benefits able to move up in producton good pay my hours are good now paid vacation paid holidays

    Cons

    the point system the pain involved there are some good supervisors but there are others that dont understand the waything should be done we are the ones that do the job hands on so i believe when there is an easier way of doing the job but the same amount of work is being done and its less strain on us it should be took into concideration

    Advice to Management

    I know u cant put this company on tv but I believe we need to have an undercover boss come in every plant from somewhere high up in the chain so they can see for there selves the thing really going on then mabey if they try and do a job hands on they will see there are better ways of getting the right amount of production done at a smoother and more organized fashion
