    Pros

    The people are very good people. They will work hard for you.

    Management sucks. They overwork you and they make for a very hostile environment. If I would have known it was like this I would have went the other way.

    Get rid of process manager ASAP!!

    decent pay, good health insurance

    Cons

    Unlike corporate, the plant in Britt has no real regard for safety or decency

    High employee turnover rates are an indication of incompetent middle management, not bad employees. .

    I worked at Michael Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and it isn't particularly difficult for the most part. Station change every hour or so which helps time go by faster.

    Cons

    If you work the 3rd shift you need to know Spanish or you will have a difficult time learning exactly what to do.

    Advice to Management

    3rd shift needs more English speakers. It's difficult to learn how to take apart machinery when no one you work with can speak English.

    Great pay, plenty of overtime if thats what you want.

    Cons

    Cold working place for most of the positions. The HR department doesn't understand people besides themselves have problems going on in they're life as well.

    Fire the one's that don't care and hire some true people that actually care for they're employees.
