Utilities Technician (Current Employee) – Fort Dodge, IA – April 25, 2017
Swing shift, 12 hour days are mandatory for all technicians. This can be challenging at times when dealing with family events and holidays. This job is great for learning technical and mechanical troubleshooting/repair skills. The management is great for the most part, almost too nice sometimes. The workplace culture can become a bit trying on account of the required testing and certifications required to maintain employment. The most enjoyable part of the job has to be the 5 days off every other week.
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – New Haven, MI – April 21, 2017
Great place to work! Great people, great atmosphere! Great management! I was a contract employee, it's very hard to get in here, the pay wasn't great. Once you get in, it's pretty secure, no one ever leaves. The culture is like family!

Utility Operator (Former Employee) – Breaux Bridge, LA – April 18, 2017
I was a utility operator in the salt plant which I operated the boiler, dryer bed, and process building equipment.I made my rounds every hour. tested the salt every four hours. I learned how to operate the gas boiler and dryer. management did not aid or help in daily operations or problems . The workplace culture was produce as much salt as possible.safety was not a priority. The hardest part of the job was I was doing the job of two people. Operating boiler, dryer bed , and process building.There was nothing enjoyable about this job.
Cargill was a fun, jam-packed place to work in. I learned the beef industry processing procedure, and how the machinery in this facility operate. Management was involved in the work processes and safety. The culture was diverse and interesting. Hardest part of the job was the changing of hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with co-workers who would help in any way needed.
Plant Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Various – April 13, 2017
I have not worked for Cargill in many years. I enjoyed my time there, though. Compensation was lacking far behind outside opportunities but there was a (false) sense a career-length job security that kept people around.
Hard job for someone going to school and has a social life.
General Production Worker (Former Employee) – Friona, TX – April 12, 2017
This job is great pay but hard labor. It's honestly a job for someone who doesn't have a social life and likes working very hard without any other future goal in mind. I will admit that advancing in this company will get you more money but if you plan on being a cop, or doctor or planning on going to school don't take it.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Arapahoe, NE – April 11, 2017
I liked working here, and they liked me! I started out in a temporary office position and ended up with a regular part time job. Unfortunately corporate didnt think my position as an office assistant should be full time, so i wasn't given benefits, but i was able to pick and chose my work days with little questioning. My office kept me busy even in the off season so i wouldn't look for another job! I got to travel and broaden my knowledge of the ag industry
