    I worked at Shearer's Foods

    Pros

    Decent pay, good foot in the door to get experience and get out.

    Cons

    Bosses contradict themselves and then "can't remember" giving you a direct order. Not uncommon to work 16hrs in a 24hr period. Several EPA violations on protected wetlands, injuries due to sketchy setups at best, and hippa violations all buried in paperwork. Also if you speak up you get reprimanded/removed. Very hostile work environment. Unequal training, no proper training procedure, still terminated if you mess up a key procedure that you haven been trained on. Plant supervisor doesn't even try to fix the issues pertaining to bad management, just cares about funds/production.
