    I have been working at Prairie Farms Dairy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to this company. High stress and
    Long hours that are not paid fairly.

    Cons

    Pay system bypasses the American workers right to
    Overtime and short changes the employee while
    Exploiting hours.

    Advice to Management

    Pay hourly and stop stealing employees pay.

    Pros

    Supervisor salary is within median for this area.

    Cons

    The hours are more than the median and there is not any compensation for extra hours worked. Not even a yearly bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Front line supervisors and managers, should receive a yearly bonus as well as comp days or extra compensation for working over fifty hours a week.

    Pros

    Union jon, pay is solid, the benefits are pretty decent, albeit, the vision and dental are subpar. You are guarenteed 40 hours, with as much overtime as you want, usually. There's always room for change. You get one bid a year, and if you see a job posted that you may want, you can bid it. If you have enough seniority you have a good chance of getting it.

    Cons

    You start from the bottom, and you get forced overtime A LOT when you are the low man on the pole.


  9. "Operation department"

    Long hours
    Supervisors take customers side over yours
