Lead Blender/Loader (Former Employee), Kenosha, WIFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: high pace work environment
Cons: mandatory holidays
A typical day consisted of but not limited to: Computer controlled operation where I was in charge of mixing snd testing, of product/s to customer specifications. I also was in charge of the distribution of product/s to specific departments such as rail department, warehouse, direct pipeline, and bulk truck load out. I also was required to load and – more... seal bulk trucks and the processing of paperwork such as a bill of lading. I learned how to control my time and limit down time to a minimum while achieving my daily work load. Management was very direct yet allowed individual thinking. The hardest part of my job was the time restraints for orders on occasion. The most enjoyable part of my job was the high pace and the individual thinking and leadership. – less

A constantly challenging career with unpredictable events
Replacement Farm Supervisor (Current Employee), Dayton, VAJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: self management, independent work opportunities
Cons: long days, on call 24-hours, last minute interferences with personal life
The easiest and the hardest job to perform. There are often days when everything goes well and a schedule is able to be accomplished. Depending on the time of the flock, a day can be as short as six hours allowing more personal time. As it requires working with live animals, there are more often days when things go wrong and decisions need to be made – more... that could cost the company money. It is a great environment to work with people from all walks of life. Many opportunities exist to self teach mechanical maintenance and electrical work as well as developing supervisor and time management skills – less
