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

    Pros

    The pay is good for someone with little education or experience. The overtime can really add up. Average benefits. And certainly a chance to practice your foreign language skills.

    Cons

    Hard to have a life. I worked second shift and rather than getting finished at 12:30 am, it was usually 1:30-2:30. Also, during the fall you will be required to work most Saturdays. Many of the jobs are physically taxing. No, brutal is a better word. Repetitive motion injuries are common. My 18 months there resulted in 2 carpal tunnel surgeries and a disability settlement.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid working your employees so many hours per week.

    Pros

    Tyson chicken is a great place to wotk, if you are looking for a job. It's a wonderful place to work and get as many hours as you want, you could work seven days a week or you could work night shift or day, which ever you prefer, it gives you a since of completion and adversity.

    Cons

    If you have kids, you wouldn't have time for them, especially if you work packing or as it's called labeling.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep your employees in mind, remember you started where everyone else started from, and that because you came into power, don't take advantage of it, we work just as hard or hard than you do, so give a break sometimes.
