Microbiologist (Former Employee), St. Louis, MO – March 2, 2014
Pros: it's a job
Decent place for starting job. No incentives, or raises, non-competitive wages. A typical day, is spent in an office and on manufacturing floor, with repetitive tasks. Management is easy to communicate with. Virtually no opportunity for growth. Co-workers easy to get along with.

Machine Operator (Current Employee), Troy, OH – February 13, 2014
Pros: good pay, good benefits.
Cons: poor leadership/ management.
At this current point in time the management there has no clue what really goes on there. Not a very enjoyable job. Always coming up with news ways to save the company money. Which is a good thing. But do not give us the proper tools and equipment to be able to do so efficiently. I used to look forward to going into work, now i dread the thought of – more... having to go back to work while I'm on my days off. – less
Packaging Machine Operator (Former Employee), Lincoln, NE – January 27, 2014
Pros: saftey lunches
Cons: lay off
Clock-in, put PPE's on, shift exchange with off going shift, pre-shift meeting, run the machine, preform checks and enter into SAP, keep the line running, change overs if necessary, shift exchange with oncoming shift
I loved everything I did at ConAgra and I learned so much in the 3 years I was there. New Management wanted to weed out the salary people and bring in hourly, so I did not agree with how things were being handled. There was no part of my job that I found hard in any way. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people I worked with and our family atmosphere.
Great Company with a drive toward continued success.
Line Leader/Continuous Skills Development Lead (Former Employee), Lincoln, NE – January 21, 2014
I was the Production Supervisor on the floor for a specific product line. Managed & motivated employees to perform work safely & efficiently while conforming to company policies. People were great to work with & enjoyed going to work. Hardest part of the job was starting out on night shifts & juggling family life. Enjoyed making a difference in the – more... company & in my co-workers. – less
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee), Troy, OH – January 17, 2014
Pros: close to home
Cons: being degraded, long hours, no time off, micro managed, 1 pay raise in 4 years
A typical day consisted of maintaining and keeping equipment running. Equipment isn't very sophisticated, mostly conveyors. Parts inventory was always a challenge. I was a maintenance supervisor and was micro managed to a point I didn't know could exist. The worst part of my day was when the maintenance manager came in in the morning and imposed his – more... daily screaming and degrading session with the maintenance supervisors. I consider his rants work place violence and they couldn't figure why a union was banging on their door! Meetings between managers and hourly workers in the maintenance department were non-existent except for the two over a four year period in which they were told how little the department was getting accomplished and they were an embarrassment. If you wanted a weekend off it had to be taken as vacation except for the every other weekend you were off. One pay raise in four years service. The best part of my day was going home for what was left of the day. – less
I enjoy relaxing at home and cooking a nice meal for my wife and myself.
Sanitation Supervisor (Current Employee), El Paso, Tx. – January 15, 2014
A typical day at work would be scheduling the sanitation crew around production on a day to day basis. I learned more about ajacent line cleaning which is a challange in itself. I have been a strong coach for my co-workers and have brought the sanitation dept. to a higher level. the most enjoyable part of my job would be when I leave the facility and – more... know that it is clean and and is food safe. – less
