    I worked at George's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and the salary for production supervisor is okay. With so much going on in the plant time seems to go by fast.

    Cons

    Long long hours and weekends (60 hour average). Only one 30 minute break unpaid. They are always hiring workers because of high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Your hours is way to high you need to cut, give more than 1 break

    I have been working at George's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is in a central location of NorthWest Arkansas and not in the middle of no where as most poultry plants

    Cons

    Very low pay. Training is too lengthy and not well explained on what are policies and procedures. They make you signup un voluntarily on something called bravo wellness if you elect to have health insurance with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging everything and spend time with your current HR employees to understand their needs. Also do not use a temp agency to handle your HR affairs that is sloppy and tells me you do not have time for your own team!
