    Pros

    Pay and benefits. We get paid for our birthday.

    Cons

    If you are not a behind kisser, you won't fit in there! Bully for a manager and shows favoritism. Manager told me...."need to cut down on the overtime", I saw 2 co-worker's time cards laying on the table where we have lunch and I could not help but notice one of the behind kissers had 150+ hours for 2 weeks. I took photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    There have been so many people quit at our mill and it is because of our manager and the HR department lady.

    I worked at Seaboard Foods full-time

    Pros

    The company leads you to believing you add value to the company and are important which is a lie. A few honest good people work for the company that genuinely care, but that is a small number.

    Cons

    Upper management simply uses you until they do not need you anymore. They put on a huge show every time the KC team comes in to make everything look good and justify each persons job. The KC team is disconnected with what is happening on the ground level. The management is a good Ol boy system. They try and show how much they care for the communities they work in but only because they must cover all the unethical things they do! Hourly employees, high school graduates, college graduates, and professionals take a deeper look before you chose to work for this company. The company only cares about making money, not the people or the animal. This is evidence with the stance on crate gestation.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees like they are disposable and continue exploiting "cheap labor". For once care about the animals you produce not just because you see it as a paycheck, but because it's the right thing to do.

    Pros

    Pay, health insurance, 401 K, paid vacation, sick days, family leave for births, advancement opportunities, on site cafeteria, dental, vision, meat discounts, offer opportunities to earn bonus pay, available overtime, union, life insurance,

    Cons

    Politics, management issues, termination practices. They need to reassess the practice of forcing out employees who are injured on the job. They need better assessment of abilities, skills and ambition for advancement, and promote people who will help the company progress as well as themselves and those under their supervision

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating workers like they are disposable
