Customer Business Manager (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 4, 2016
Cons- company is always changing directions, every 2-3 years big changes occur, which are not well thought out. Not a stable work environment. The people are good, but the upper management lacking. New CEO is horrible! The culture is not motivating. No praise for job well done.
pro- compensation is above average for industry in sales
the work schedule for slim jims is terrible, have to work 7days before you get any days off. work most weekends, sucks.
bakery side is not much better. u get a schedule of what you are suppose to run each day. you come in to work to find they have changed the days schedule. do this on a regular basis. it gets really old. you have 2 maybe 3 different start times. depending on what the schedule says. come in on one start time to find they have changed the schedule. frustrating.
Engineering Director (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – November 3, 2016
ConAgra was a very large company with an incredibly diverse product portfolio. The decision to acquire Ralcorp in order to become the major player in private brand products was ill fated; many of ConAgra's branded products competed with the private brands purchased and created a cannibalization effect. This decision was what lead ultimately to the breakup of ConAgra and concurrent corporate reorganization,
Environmental Sanitation (Current Employee) – Hermiston, OR – February 29, 2016
We start our day with our morning meeting with our Lead and Supervisor. We start talking about what we are going to do that day and how we are going to do it. Talk about our risks and how to be safe. I have learned to drive machinery. Also, I have learned to work with others. The hardest part of the job is communication and respect for one another. The most enjoyable part of the job is the knowledge I have gained and the people I have met.
Finance Specialist III (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – January 13, 2017
They give 1 person the job of 3 and continue to pile it on. Managment doesn't know the positions they take over and team memebers literally have to guide them at all times, not supportive and lots of favortisum. Couldn't be paid enough to ever go back.
Summer hours off at one/vacation time
Never had time for breaks/lunch and they over work you
Work place that doesn't care about it's employees.
Benhill Operator (Current Employee) – Guion Road plant in Indianapolis, IN – June 30, 2016
The company in Indianapolis pays well, but you have to give up family. This company goes thru managers like they are walking thru a revolving door. Management has added a lot of new equipment without thinking this all the way thru and creating more work instead of relieving the work load.
I have learned a lot about the process for making table spreads aka margarine. Learned to drive a fork truck, a reach truck, and to load the product into the semi trailers.
Management doesn't care about the employees. Have Team Leads that have no clue about the process. They seem to want to find all your faults and never compliment on your knowledge.
Most co-workers work well together. Just like all places you have the lazy ones and messy ones.
The hardest part of the job is working 12 hours a day several days of the week with not knowing until the last hour if you are REQUIRED to work the extra 4 hours. Not being able to PLAN ANYTHING.
I enjoy some of the people I work with who make it a little better place to work. Also, we are Union and in our contract anything over 8 hours in a day is time and a half, if we work 7 days our 7th day is double time.
Packer (Former Employee) – Azusa, CA – August 11, 2016
Easy job but people are not really nice. The management is not good. The security is important but they do not really take car of EE. However I learned to deal with new people and i discovered new skills in myself.
Group Leader (Current Employee) – Azusa, CA – August 25, 2016
Good place to work. Too bad its shutting down. Many good people working there. All hard working people, especially when everyone is working 12 hour days. Management can use some help with managing skills.
Quality Assurance Analyst (Former Employee) – Omaha NE – October 19, 2016
I loved working with ConAgra and was proud to be a part of their team. Coworkers made it fun. I am a casualty of the move to Chicago and dismantling of the companies many brands. The hardest part of the job was waiting for the axe to fall and seeing many families affected by their job loss.
Coworkers, volunteer opportunities
Impending doom made it hard to work in a positive atmosphere.
