Saw Operator (Former Employee), hazleton – October 17, 2014
Short sweet and to the point, make your money, i wouldn't advise long term employment, everyone is headed for the door, and don't really care what it takes to get out of there.
Over-all my experience with the office workers, and corporate was fantastic, however --- on the floor, short and to the point there were obvious discrepancies in how things – more... were handled on the day to day. – less
Shipping Warehouse Clerk (Former Employee), Wyalusing, PA – September 24, 2014
Pros: good pay, plenty of vacation/holiday/sick days to use if needed, nice bosses.
Cons: messy and cold
Pay was above average. Shipping department was awesome. The rest of the facility I would not want to work in. Lots of blood and guts, however there is plenty of PPE provided. Safest place I have ever worked. Management is very friendly. Training programs are excellent.
DSM Picking (Former Employee), Sidney, OH – September 19, 2014
Pros: sometimes free lunch, dinner
Cons: too much mandatory overtime
A typical day at work would be to do shift exchange to get started. I would get my work station set up and then I check inventory to see where the ingredients are and what I need to get for my work stations. What I've learned from this job are how to use an RF system and drive a stand up forklift. Management was fine for the most part. Most of the time – more... my co-workers talked with each other about who are willing to come in early or stay over time. The hardest part of the job was to work 12 hour shifts almost everyday. The most enjoyable part of the job was that there was always something productive to do and my co-workers were all great workers. – less
Lead person (Former Employee), Cargil Butler, Wi – September 18, 2014
Pros: days go by fast
Cons: wake up too early
Typical day at work get up at 3:30a.m to start at 4:30a.m I might say is the hardest part of my job. I love my work flow but have been here for some years and believe it is time for a change. I have learned to be self independent and do what is needed to make the 10hr shift go by very smooth by doing my job adequately. I enjoy my co-wokers and if I – more... ever need a hand there is lots of helping hands. – less
Fab Scale Operator (Current Employee), Schuyler, NE – September 7, 2014
Pros: job security
Cons: can have very hard jobs
My co-workers are the most enjoyable part of this job. I gained some very important leadership skills at this company. I learned how to communicate better. The hardest part of the job can be when the previous department does not do the job correctly when entering the grades of beef in computer causing me and others excessive time consuming work which – more... takes away from the over all production. – less
Warehouse Manager St Lucie West, FL (Former Employee), st. lucie west, fl – August 29, 2014
A typical day at work is to come in and make sure all forklifts are being charged, paperwork finished and make sure my crew were getting there assignments done throughout the day. I learned how to take on bigger responsibilities and to drive a forklift. My co-workers always got the job done quick, fast and safe. The hard part was when I first started – more... in packaging and i had to learn fast because i usually had to multitask. The most enjoyable part of the job was the experience I've had with learning how to drive a forklift and how to be a productive manager. – less
cap skinner (Current Employee), Friona, TX – August 27, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: potential for injury
A job that keeps you on your feet for 8 hours. It requires the use of hooks and knives and repetitive movements causing strain on hands and arms. There were a lot of different levels of management. A significant amount of my coworkers did not speak english. The hardest part of the job for me was the repetition. The most enjoyable part of the job was – more... that I was paid weekly and the pay was good. – less

-early arrival, and be ready to go when i got to the floor -the best way the be productive and have better quality is to ask those that have experience. - moderate management - the best way to enjoy my job was to know my co-workers - i enjoyed working along side others
Pros: working with good people, good benefits, good pay.
Cons: not given enough time to complete work by deadline.
I worked for 3 assigned lawyers in a large corporate law department. On a typical day, I would answer the phones, type up documents and correspondence, make copies, distribute mail, and fax and deliver documents. I learned how to type legal documents, keep track of their calendars, write some correspondence for the lawyers. The co-workers were friendly – more... and helped in time of need. The worst part of the job was when I was given assignments at the last minute with not enough time to complete them by deadline. – less
