    I worked at Tyson Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for an OTR driver. Many paid holidays. Pretty good equipment and mechanics usually did good jobs. Tyson was good at reimbursing out-of-pocket expenses and keeping on top of any issues I had.

    Cons

    Drivers only received 1 day off for every 6 days out. Most would stay out about 2 weeks, but I would stay out 6 weeks so I could have a week off. I wouldn't advise doing that. Tyson has many plants in multiple states and the rules and S.O.P.'s are different at each. That can get frustrating. Probably the most annoying thing are all the idiot security and gate guards that are on little power trips, although there are just as many good ones.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise giving 2 days off for every 7 spent on the road. Also, when a truck breaks down and Tyson sends you another truck, they need to make sure that that truck is cleaned out of property from last driver. This happened to me twice while I worked there and It made that time on the road quite miserable with my belongings and another drivers' belongings packed into the truck cab.


  2. ""OK""

    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    While there is a sharp learning curve in this train-yourself environment, it eventually serves as a good learning experience for motivated candidates.

    Cons

    Reactive vs. proactive. Resistance to invest in infrastructure and equipment. Poor work/life balance.
