Long hours, average compensation. Difficult management.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee), Ogden, UtahJune 29, 2014
Pros: good midlevel crews, and good benefits.
Cons: difficult management, average compensation. many seven day weeks.
I found Con Agra, to be average in compensation, with little to no increases. Their benefits were top line. They work half of the year at a 7 day schedule with little extra compensation. They manage with a poor retention rate.

You never know what will happen
Sr. Specialist (Current Employee), Omaha, NEJune 18, 2014
Pros: great benefits, onsite workout facilities, great work environment, attitude that fosters charity giving and activities
Cons: will i have a job in a year?
ConAgra Foods is a pretty good place to work - if you are able to flow with the ups and downs. I've been there almost 10 years and the company doesn't seem to be able to implement strategies that lead to continued growth. Even when the times are good, we all just wait for leadership to make a decision that will set them back. We really hope this won't – more... happen, but it seems that this a trend that ConAgra just can't seem to overcome.So we all wait for the reorg and hope we survive. – less

Associate Accountant II (Former Employee), Peru, INJune 5, 2014
Pros: good people
Cons: dusty, dirty facility
At the time, my boss liked his boss; the company was national and ran regionally. My boss was happy and we worked well together to achieve the necessary results. Mistakes were 'no-problem' and easily fixed.

Electronics tech (Former Employee), Hermiston, ORMay 24, 2014
A typical day started by checking in with the tech from the previous shift and getting the radio. Then there was a safety meeting and then daily rounds. After that I would work on any projects I had or fix any issues that would come up. Often times I would work with other maintance departments helping them with any fixes they need to do.

ConAgra management was reactive and not focused, but the salary and benefits were very good
Key Account Manager (Former Employee), Mount Pleasant, SCMay 18, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits, co-workers
Cons: corporate disfunction
ConAgra Foods compensation, benefits, and other areas were very good. However the corporate culture was one of reactive, knee jerk actions based on short term results and numbers.

My position was eliminated in 2011, and I was the victim of downsizing. Several aspects of this job loss bothered me tremendously. First, I had one of my best years as an – more... account manager, increased business by over 16% from the previous year, was well within accrual spending guidelines, and achieved over 80% acceptance of new items in my customers. Secondly, the day I was informed my position had been eliminated, my immediate supervisor sent me an email informing me of a 3% RAISE. I was fired and received my largest raise in my six years with ConAgra. Talk about a corporate left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing? – less

About my work history and what I love to do
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee), Kansas City, KSApril 23, 2014
Pros: customers, co workers, benefits
Cons: 410k, stocks
my typical day at work consisted of entering in customers info to complete there application and customer services answering all there question about the application or account. I have learned several different departments through my years with company. I m very muti tasker can do more than one project at a time. I like to different reports and new – more... projects for managements and help out the team as much as I can. I work good in large groups and small groups settings. I work as a team to get my work done if is need also work good on my own as well. Hardest part about my job would be organized more because some time I have more than one report or project going on so I seem to be a bit scattered. The most enjoyable part of my job is talking to all of the customers and helping them out. I love talking to them all and answering the questions about the application or accounts. – less

Good paying job,
Purchasing Coordinator (Former Employee), King City, CAApril 20, 2014
Pros: good health coverage. very good severance pay.
Cons: when you work for a big company you are known as a # not by name.
Always new changes, Very good place to work. A typical day was taken up by having meeting all the time and it would put you behind in your work. Management was always changing. The hardest part
was when our plant Teamster workforce went on strike and we had to cross the picket lines since we were administrative personnel and strike lasted for 3 seasons. – more... The second hardest part was hearing from main headquarters that they were closing our plant after over 41 years in business. – less
