    I worked at Jack Link's Protein Snacks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free Jerky, Decent Benefits, Bonuses, Company Events. Sometimes we had a Chili Cooking Contest!

    Cons

    Work loads can get pretty heavy during the Summer Months, then slow down during the Winter Months due to lack of demand for product, so save up! The Penalty Point System is very restricting, any days you miss that isn't approved PTO or approved Un- PTO or approved Maternity Leave, you will get penalized every time, no matter the reasons you may have. Each penalty point takes a long time to drop off, and you only get...

    Advice to Management

    Please, give credit and discipline to where it is rightly due ONLY by Company Standards and Policies and Rules, not limiting yourselves with personal motives, vendettas and coddling those who aren't playing by the rules. Don't let your emotions get the best of your judgments, Leaders need to be strong and level headed, just like they would ask of those they hire. Anything that is trifling, useless, unprofessional, hostile,...

    I worked at Jack Link's Protein Snacks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Used to be a fun place to work with no insecure leaders

    Cons

    It all went down hill for the company when they started to hire inept and insecure leaders (discard) from a big company located in downtown Minneapolis. For some reason these people came in with their own agenda and hired their friends and family and discarded all the existing folks unless they were willing to brown nose.

    Advice to Management

    Jack Links used to be a great place to work with no dirty politics and red tape. the new leadership has turned it into a maze of YES men and Women. Please revert to your roots that made you successful where everyone's opinion matters and incompetency wasn't constantly rewarded.

    I have been working at Jack Link's Protein Snacks full-time

    Pros

    There are good times when you can actually drive your area of the business, make decisions and have a voice. Enjoy it! It can be short lived. Health insurance employer contribution is amazing.

    Cons

    This place is weighted in bureaucratic and archaic business practices. It is amazing anything changes or moves forward with as much spinning of the wheels that occur. Workplace culture is about as low as it can get. This is not a happy place to be everyday. Also, if you are coming in new don’t expect a lot of formal training or career development. Those two things really do not exist here.

    Advice to Management

    They won’t listen anyways.

    Pros

    There are some nice people who work for this company. It is nice to have access to the company store for their products.

    Cons

    If you are not family or friends to management, you will be out of the inner circle. They waste to much time with meetings that go no where and you just keep working on the same problem again and again.

    Advice to Management

    Do not micromanage everything. Do not let your smart people go and bring in the ones who will work cheaper.
