Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Smithfield Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

No layoffs. The pay is pretty decent but you work for every red cent you best believe that.

Cons

The employees are given no respect at all from this Company. Supervisors show favoritism especially to women who wear tight clothes. I quit after 10 years. I just could not take it anymore. You can/will be fired at the drop of a dime. The Union that is in this Company does absolutely nothing to help the members who are being threatened and harassed by management. The employees who work on the production lines are treated like slaves. I had one Supervisor who could not read or write--No kidding!!!!

Advice to Management

Get rid of everyone and start fresh.
