    I worked at Tyson Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, laid back work environment, great people. You work three and a half days then three and a half days off which is nice. But you soon realize it's not as much time as you'd think. Overall id my time here and would work here again great company great pay and just great people. Also I worked night shift and it was very laid back but still got them on done.

    Cons

    Some supervisors micro managed even though they didn't know the job, would expect you to do 60 hours of work in one 12 hour shift

    Pros

    Relaxed environment for how stressful the job is. It is laid back and everyone is fr Neely and helpful when you start. They are very helpful with intern hours.

    Cons

    Stressful job with cranky drivers but overall drivers are treated well so it isn't bad for transportation. Pay is equal for all interns based on year in school.

    I worked at Tyson Foods full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment, good pay, good benefits. All around this is a great place to start working as you can make really good money and receive really good benefits!

    Cons

    Where i worked at it was cold and occasionally you got misted by water when it was time to spray clean the floors which happened regularly throughout the shift.

    Advice to Management

    I think my only complaint was that when you went to lunch and came back someone had taken your gear and I had to go get new gear just about every time so I guess my advice to management would be to incorporate a better system there.

    The employee chicken sale is great.

    Pros

    The lead man as well as the maintenance workers are very patient training you. Holiday pay, PTO, friendly staff and great hours!

    Cons

    None that I'm aware of but it's asking for 20 words so here they are.

    Advice to Management

    Management at the Hatchery know how to run their department and have faith in the lead men and the works under him. Keep doing what you're doing.
