    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at JBS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Department supervisors got their own truck to drive back and forth to work. That was by far the best and only benefit of working at the La Salle, CO feed lot. Otherwise, benefits and pay were below average.

    Cons

    Very corrupt culture and system in place. Worst management and facilities I've ever had to deal with. No teamwork at all. Had no budget to properly run or staff the elevator. OSHA would have closed us down if they knew how bad things were. They made employees work overtime (sometimes up to 80 hrs a week) but did not PAY overtime because of a loop hole in CO law. This made it very difficult as a mgr to hire... quality employees. I had 9 people under me and most were ex-cons or in the country illegally. Stench of cow manure and dead animals 24/7. Flys in the summertime were unbearable. I was a supervisor on salary but still worked 70-80 hr weeks because of how understaffed we were. Easily the worst job I've ever had.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company to someone else who knows what they're doing and listens to employees....then tear the place down and start anew.

    Management makes threats and doesn't appreciate staff. They twist lies and here say to make themselves look better . You're disposable and while you are there anything positive they'll the credit for.
