Lead Man (Former Employee) – Lyons, GA – May 5, 2015
A typical day at work was me getting my people to the work area to begin working. I put labels on cans made sure the line was running the way it should be. I was a machine operator and trained employees who was on my line to become machine operators.

Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Lyons, GA – March 23, 2015
They have very strict rules and when you mess up, they are quick to want to replace you. When you first work there you are working as an temp. and have to bid for an job. I think that is ridiculous. The job is very easy and another thing i don't like is that last day of the week you don't know what time you are getting off on night shift which i think is unfair.
they give 3 breaks, work is easy.
they don't have an good health plan, you are not guaranteed to work for the company permentant.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Pago Pago, AS – September 21, 2013
Because of the cost of living, the pay did not equal the amount of work put in for the day. There was no overtime paid to the "manual" laborers. I remember I worked 12 hours and got paid less than a days' work. The co-workers were okay, some of them. The others were highly disrespectful especially to a person who is quiet like me. The hardest part of the job was receiving a pay check undesirable. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting off for the day.
hard labor, disrespectful people, do not receive what you work for, highly short breaks, unsanitary
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Lyons, GA – November 29, 2014
It was a fairly good place to work at. You learnt a lot about the things you may need to build your own house. I learnt plumbing, paints, gardening, and also I learnt different piece of wood. The co-workers treated you with respect because they had the same rules as cashiers but management wasn't worth the job, they treated the cashiers with no respect.

Food Safety Auditor (Former Employee) – Lyons, GA – August 19, 2014
A typical day working at Chicken of the Sea was completing GMP and Food Safety Audits. I would choose an area and pull the Standard Operating Procedures and audit the employee working the area that day to make sure the employee knew how to properly perform the job. I learned Basic HACCP for canning tuna, and how to take and give constructive corrective criticism. The hardest part of the job was when I would try to perform a job that I was not familiar with while I was completing the audit. The most enjoyable part of the job was being around some of the employees that were on the lines trying to out work other lines.
learning the process of canning tuna.
the hours that i was working at the time was a 10 hour spilt shift.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Lyons, GA – November 12, 2014
A typical day included operating my machine and performing regular warehouse duties. I learned alot from my peers about being promote and patient. I think management needs to be improved to make the company run smoother. The hardest part of the job was the 12hr/shifts 5 days a week. I loved the hands-on experience working on my machine.
A productive and fun work place with very nice people.
