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

    Pros

    Pay and a good opportunity for someone who works 12 hours a day and was treated fairly first couple of years.

    Cons

    Pressure and can't trust anyone. I was set up and fired over false pretenses. Management turned on me after 3 years because I was too old.

    I have been working at Tyson Foods full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary and benefits, faith friendly, opportunities for skill development opportunities that may not be available and/or relevant in current role.

    Cons

    Lack of schedule flexibility, limited scope of employment consideration/"perks" necessary for today's generational focus. Opportunity to work remotely would benefit those who work best without all of the distractions within an office environment and in fact, can be even more productive if taken into consideration.

    Advice to Management

    Provide proper training and feedback to ensure continued advancement opportunities.

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

    Pros

    It's a job
    You learn routes quickly bcuz u go same places alot

    Cons

    99% of loads require you to drive at night. They don't care if your tired only if loads get there on time.

     all loads pretty much only give bare legal time to deliver if that

     blame drivers for everything so get ready even if they make a mistake they find a way to blame the driver.

    loads are constantly late coming out of plants so when its time to go home BEWARE! You may end up stuck somewhere 1000 miles away for days and noone apologizes.

    Few facilities and most yards are filthy so you can't take showers unless your at a truck stop.

    Not a trucking company so when your truck breaks down they dont resources to handle their own work you will hv to get a third party to fix even a flat tire.

    Dispatch treats you like a trainee and is often very disrespectful towards drivers.

    Low pay and will run you back to back you will only get your required 10hr break nothing more. Sometimes you may work longer than 14hes because loads are not planned based on when you actually finish but just your delivery times.

    No way for you to view anything online your pay, loads, etc

    Advice to Management

    Listen to driver complaints
    Address mistakes made by dispatch
    stop blame drivers for everything culture
    Pay drivers what they are worth
     .01/yr raise is not enough for seasoned drivers with 1+ yrs experience
