    I have been working at JBS USA Holdings, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great absence policy. Ways to move up. Job bids are based on seniority which I find extremely fair.

    Cons

    It is a slaughter plant so the turn around is high. Did I mention a slaughter plant? The jobs aren't always the prettiest.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they have an idea to save the company money or time.

    I worked at JBS USA Holdings, Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I met some amazing friends, JBS cafe, discounted meat, scheduling can be flixible and decent employer sponsored healthcare.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations from management, high stress, volatile working conditions,no appreciation from management ,difficult bureaucracy, poor training, high turnover rate with employees, management threatens employees with their job rather than offer constructive criticism (I've experienced this first hand and heard from several employees that they've been threatened), no definition of 'team', veteran employees degrade new employees, management uses threats and intimidation to push employees rather than lead by example, and the office stinks.

    Advice to Management

    There are several classes offered in Colorado that help you learn leadership skills, management skills, and overall how to be a better supervisors. The turnover rate is a reflection of your ability to lead (or in this case; not) and how others perceive you. I suggest investing in these class to become a leader rather than a dictator.

    I worked at JBS USA Holdings, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good coworkers. Discount on meat products processed at the plant.

    Cons

    Low pay for heavy workload; benefits reduced across the board after JBS bought the plant from Cargill. Disrespectful upper management that will cuss people out and then send line workers to HR for using profanity. Lousy role models. Lots of mandatory overtime to increase the plant's production, but the company doesn't want to pay you a nickel for your time during that production. It's all about a huge profit for the company and crap wages for the workers. Used to be a great place to work years ago. Nobody wants to help out the workers, not even when you take your complaint to HR. Too many people in jobs they got because they're related to somebody or they grew up together in Beardstown. It's a pork processing plant with a bunch of chickens running around with their heads cut off.
