Human Capital Manager (Former Employee) – Elk City, OK – August 21, 2017
I worked there before the Sigma purchase of Bar-S. It was a close knit environment that was conducive to learning. Issues could be escalated up to the owner in Phoenix if need be. President of location and great pulse on the distribution center and was overall a fun place to work.

no room to really succeed or move up, all about who you know. Supervisors are stuck up and unfriendly, most people also stuck up. you can work your butt off but still wont get you moved up unless your kissing up to the supervisor. They go by sonority.
QA Technician (Former Employee) – Clinton, OK – April 2, 2016
I enjoyed working with all my co-workers, very friendly environment. Breaks and lunch were given reasonable. My most enjoyable part of the job was the ability to advance to higher positions in which I took part of. The hardest part of the job was the continuous production with little down time, standing for long hours- sometimes up to 12 hrs a shift. I still enjoyed the hardest parts because they weren't hard to deal with.
Sanitation Worker (Former Employee) – Altus, OK – October 14, 2015
wet and hot! but it was fun! how to clean and sanitize industrial size machines. management: they cared about the workers.they would do whatever they could to help you. co-workers and i got along really well! work together as a team. nothing was hard! the most enjoyable part of the job was working with people you cared about.
A good place to work overall, with a few drawbacks and a few perks.
Sanitation (Former Employee) – Altus, OK – January 13, 2015
A typical day at work involves pre-rinsing, cleaning, and sanitizing the equipment and walls of each room in the department, once production has stopped.
I learned the workings of various machines, application of chemical types, and cleaning techniques.
Management is generally good. Managers do not micromanage, and allow work to be completed smoothly with little interference, unless a health or safety concern is present.
The most difficult part of the job is dealing with extremely hot and cold temperatures, and employees do have a tendency to get wet during the process. Rain suits are supplied, but cannot always keep water out.
The most enjoyable part of the job is that work is usually completed quickly, leaving plenty of down-time(breaks) during the shift.
Long breaks, Employee discounts, Varied position options
Temperature extremes, Slippery surfaces, Difficult to make plans due to a schedule that changes weekly
Efficient place to work with great benefits but just not the kind of environment that was suitable to adjust to.
Packer (Former Employee) – Altus, OK – April 14, 2014
A typical day at work was constant multitasking and packaging hot dogs into a box. I learned to pick out bad hot dog packages with wrong dates, or enidibles that were contained in the packages. Management was alright but mostly were never around long enough to see and understand fully what goes on in each department. My co-workers lacked true integrity they only did their jobs fully when management was in the room everything went out the door when management wasn't there. The hardest part of the job was doing my job and someone else's job constantly everyday. The most enjoyable part of my job was it's consistency i was never not doing anything or lazying around i like that in a job i like being busy and being able to multi-task.
Start Out Pay
Short Breaks, Co-Worker Drama, Co-workers that don't speak the same language as you, Co-workers that can't keep their hands to themselves, Co-workers that lack true integrity in the workplace
Palletizer (Former Employee) – Altus, OK – July 28, 2013
Enjoyed working at bar-s. long shifts, cold environment. great benefits. didn't have a family while working there. good co-workers, great managers. that's where I learned how to operate a fork lift and the pallet jack.
IT Support Management (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 29, 2012
If a job that doesn't require you to be productive sounds like your fit then apply a Bar-S Foods. Of course if you don't speak Spanish and don't have an inside connection you will be turned away. If you interview simply ask the other employees how long have they been with the company. You won't find many with more than 2 years experience because all the good people left or are close to leaving soon. I was turned down for a promotion because the company is corrupt and becoming more corrupt with each passing day. Adios!
don't have to work hard
daily frustration should be part of the job title, sit on my thumbs and wait for commands
