    I worked at Foster Farms full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They will hire just about anyone. Non-English speakers, Parolees and other Felons...

    Cons

    They barely pay minimum wage and REQUIRE that you work overtime. They have a "Infraction" point system all detailed out. A minute late punching in... ½ point. Call in sick 1 point. Leave early for any reason, ½ point..... At four points, you get a warning, then every additional 2 points gets more warnings, suspension, then fired! However, do you get any type of offsets for all the overtime that you have to do? NO. Some departments work 7 days a week, for a couple weeks at a time. And instead of the overtime work always being very important, they will bring you in for 4 hours, to do B. S. work sometimes. Anyway, if you can't find a job elsewhere, then apply here.
