    I worked at JR Simplot as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked here as a temporary employee for a few summers during college. I loved the people I worked with. There is a sense of community at the Tech Center that I missed whenever I went back to school. They paid me well for a college job. People tend to stay at Simplot for a very long time.

    Cons

    Job could be tedious at times, but so is any temp job.

    Advice to Management

    Love you guys!

    Pros

    I love working here, it is just not the same company it was when I started. Many changes and not all for the better.

    Production and finance run this company.

    I have been working at JR Simplot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of variety when it comes to work, very helpful engineers, everyone is friendly, great company events, lots of visits to various sites across the company, good pay for an internship.

    Cons

    Project could sometimes take a very long time so the satisfaction of completion never came, low starting pay for new engineers, even though it is a private company, sometimes the corporate side of things can loom heavy over decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Add more training opportunities for interns, allow interns to move around within the location to try different positions and gain a wider range of experience.

    Pros

    Simplot is one the best companies I have had the opportunity to work for thus far. As an intern, they gave me multiple projects to work on, ample training in all areas, and were constantly looking for things to teach me. I was able to sit in on interviews, practice running payroll, work with other interns on cross-functional projects, send reports, and interact with employees. They even had a whole Intern Week where we got to visit all of the different Simplot branches.

    Cons

    I don't have anything bad to say about working there. It was the best internship that I had during college.

    Advice to Management

    Management is supportive, fun, and innovative. I really enjoyed working with them and think that they know how to motivate and reward their teams. They also provide a lot of opportunities for advancement within the company.
