    I worked at JBS full-time

    Pros

    Never a boring day in this position, always busy running around the entire plan, and plenty of PM's work and weekend projects

    Cons

    It was difficult to level up, due to the saturation of work schedule. It was near impossible to attend classes at times, especially with rotating shift work

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees get the opportunity to further their education and training o increase efficiency of repairs, and ensure faculty safety.

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

    Pros

    Experience. Not much else I can think of. This is a terrible place to work. This place is a disaster waiting to happen. Multiple injuries per day.

    Cons

    High turnover, unsafe work environment. Management does not support safety at all. Company is in legal battles with the city. Do not recommend working here at all.

    Advice to Management

    Need better support of safety department.

    I worked at JBS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interesting Industry & non-back stabbing employees

    Cons

    The 360 annual evaluation takes way too much time, allows peers and managers to criticize and leads to excessive turnover with the exodus being immediately after bonuses are paid.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to Brazil and get Sharp U.S. Executives to run JBS USA, or consider selling this Subsidiary. What works in Brazil more often than not does not work in the U.S.
