Approves of CEO

I worked at Tyson Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Tyson Foods has great benefits, competitive pay and mostly competent management. The new CEO is growing the company and still seems to care about all the employees.

Cons

Some roles seem to lack a defined career path and some promotions seemed to be more about who you know rather than what you know.

Advice to Management

A program was started for employees to submit their ideas for the company to save money. This program was a great idea and encourages employee to feel like they are heard and make a difference.

    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tyson offers opportunities to advance within the company. They offer advancement opportunities, and wage incentive and automatic wage increases following their 90 day probationary period. If and employee is not satisfied with their entry job position, they will find a job position more suitable for the employee. Insurance is available after 60 days of employment. Benefit options include, professional development and training, insurance, stock options, paid vacations, 401K options and Purchasing Power Programs.

    Cons

    Some of the new employees, in the de-boning department are not able to adjust to the consistent use of their hands. They switch to a different department before they give their hands time enough to adjust to the work. The company provides preventive exercise routines, time and intermitted exercises during on the job time to help employees to prevent overstressing their hand , arm, and shoulder muscles.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to make sure that each new employee has adequate mentoring and encouragement, enabling them to complete their probationary period with confidence. They do have an established Buddy system, but encouragement and feedback are also needed directly from management.

    I worked at Tyson Foods part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits: great health care plans, retirement plans, discounts, stock and bond options. Most people get promoted within 2-5 years.

    Cons

    It is cold, sometimes orders are high so you have to work weekends. You also have to work weekends before a holiday to make up for it when that holiday comes around.
