decent place to work
Shipper and Receiver (Current Employee), Butler, WIJanuary 28, 2015
job can be good money but be prepared to not have a life. I learned a lot at this company but at my own discretion. I found a lot of people don't like to train you properly so I hope you have good observation skills if being employed by this company.

Great Company to work for
Deli Raw Operations Manager (Current Employee), Waco, TXJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: great benefits and culture
Cons: work-life balance
Cargill, work culture is great, safety and food safety is always a priority. Cargill is a great place to develop especially if you start early in your career path lots of opportunities for growth in different areas.

The hardest part is managing the work-life balance, if you have small kids there is no room for time, the expectation is that work is first.

Innovative Work Environment
Contract Specialist (Former Employee), Fargo, NDJanuary 25, 2015
Pros: flexible work schedule
Cons: overly managed.
The work environment was very relaxed. Rather than being assigned to the same desk, employee's were encouraged to move around throughout the office as well as work from home. For the most part working with others throughout the company was a positive experience. The staff were very much team driven and would assist each other with problems to find solutions. Only downside to my job was the high turnover rate of supervisors. I worked for Cargill for 9 months and had 8 different supervisor's. Each time our supervisor was replaced there was a resettling period due to slightly different managing styles and priorities. Many of my supervisors didn't even care to know what our work included.

Productive fast paced, hard labor!
Auditor (Former Employee), Dodge City, KSJanuary 15, 2015
Pros: make decent money
Cons: fast paced, supervisors prefer young ladies and old ladies get discriminated
It really depends i seen lots of descrimination towards a male worker as in comparison to a female worker. Male supervisor preffer female than male, let them get away with things like absenteesm and tardiness make it difficult for males, when assingning a job trainers see a way to put young ladies on easy jobs compared to an aged old lady or a male guy, too much favoritism, etc...

A very educational and driven work enviorment
Dairy Focus Consultant (Former Employee), Minneapolis, MNJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: great people, good benefits, self rewarding
Cons: lots of travel, moved twice in one year
I loved working for this company. I learned a lot through experience and working hard to learn the business. I would make my own cold calls and pick up accounts. Once an account was mine, I would stop once a week to talk about their business and needs. I managed more than 20 accounts. I used different specialist(vet, etc) that Cargill has hired as a tool to pick up accounts. The hardest of my job is dealing with different types of people and managing their personalities with their business. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping businesses make money and seeing them excited about great things that we have done together.

It was a job.
General Laborer (Former Employee), Ottumwa, IAJanuary 3, 2015
Pros: great pay and benefits
Cons: not a great working environment.
Typical day at work would be rushing to get ready to get on the line. Hoping that the day would pass without a problem arising. I would not say all the co-workers were as pleasant to be around and the trainers were also not too good at training they would show up at the beginning of the shift and wouldn't see them the rest of the day as well as the supervisors. The speed of the ribs falling would be crazy! The hardest part of the job would be having to do your job no matter how hostile the environment was and would also see so much discrimination it was pretty uncomfortable. The most enjoyable part however would be getting my paycheck.

Interesting place, not worth it though, just a stepping stone
panel technician (Current Employee), west branch iowaJanuary 2, 2015
Pros: the customers/coworkers, pay wasn't bad, benefits not bad.
Cons: breaks short or if any, lunch if you could, place was being held together with duck tape, promises made, but broken, management, snake pit.
In my time being there at the animal nutrient branch, I have found that this place has no leadership or admirable leaders in it, they are about safety so they there is no down time or pay out to injured workers or their families so they claim to be safe for the workers , but there are other reasons than just "just we care about you." It could use an overhaul on management and their model mill system definitely cutting our legs out from under us, we were severally understaffed and outdated as well as expectations were out the window from the owner of this mill. I love ag work and the people i met there, but after this experience, anything that says cargill i may stay away from especially their products for animal feed just due to the fact that i question their production methods. I loved the customers and the guys i worked with, but when i am told they are going no where and then you over hear that in the next two months it can determine if we remain open or closed due to the fact we are not up to date or can't produce like the newer mills, yeah, makes you wonder why you left the other job to come here. I mean to lie to get someone to come there and then find all this out, it really makes you wonder their ethics that they are teaching. told 40-50 hours no weekends and then all of sudden 6 days a week, 12-16 hour days and the fact that if you were injured or sick that you may not have a job if you took longer than the time they allotted, you can't expect someone to work that way and stay and a company that touts being union free and such, you almost need a union to protect yourself in there.
