    I worked at John Morrell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Regular overtime, friendly and approachable management in most areas, vending machines for food and drinks as well as microwaves in the break-room.
    The normal work week is Monday through Thursday, but often can include Friday and Saturday as well.

    Cons

    Over 50% of incoming/new employees employees quit within their first few months and it is common for people to get off the line and walk out throughout the week.
    Due to this high rate of people leaving in ALL positions, from line worker through management, and high product demand, many areas are understaffed and overtime is mostly mandatory. You could easily end up working 12 hour shifts Monday through Friday.
    It's very common for people to leave because of how they are treated by coworkers as each person on a line is individually responsible for the product that comes their way, but it can be quickly made difficult if the person "up stream" can't keep up. The stress can, and does, build up very quickly and it's common for line workers to be at each others throats several times throughout a shift.

    Pros

    There are no pros to this job. They don't understand work/home life balance. All they care about is money. Doesn't give a crap about their employees!

    Cons

    To many hours. They expect to much from one person

    Advice to Management

    Split routes to give salesman time to service each store properly

    All the overtime you want. Good insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Punish your management team members, when warranted. And look at some of your formeremployees, and how you benefitted from them. Maybe even think of hiring them back, if the situation arises....
