ConAgra
Procurement Specialist (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOFebruary 10, 2015
Pros: hidden perks like concert tickets and sporting events
Very different environment post Ralcorp purchase. No segment of this business is safe from lay-offs or reorganizations. Management makes sweeping knee jerk reactions to one bad quarter instead of staying true to the course and trusting in the process to grow the private brands business. Wide spread speculation the past year about spin offs and sales makes it very difficult to see a future with this company. Bright side is solid benefits, lots of vacation. Below industry average pay though offsets this.

Very bad workplace
Factory Worker (Former Employee), Dothan, ALFebruary 8, 2015
It was a harsh enviroment to work in along with the disrespectful co-workers. I would not recommend this job to anyone. Temporary workers are neglected in the work place by workers that have been working there for years.

Sanitation & Sterilization Specialist (Former Employee), Marshall, MOJanuary 22, 2015
if you show up, do your job, and don't look for petty things to complain about, there are no problems. its a food production plant. as a sanitation and sterilization specialist, it isn't meant to be a "glamour job", but it is a job with plenty of good people, in an atmosphere where you find the good in what you can. you will get out of it, what you put into it. I learned a lot of new skills, each machine has an order in which to be cleaned, and some cleaners cannot be used on some of the machines. Also, the management may have some communication delays, but if you stick with it, and/or bring it up to the other members of management also and make sure they are aware of what Is going on, everything will work out. The rest of the sanitation and sterilization staff is broken down by department area, so not everyone knows everyone necessarily, which may be the hardest part of the job. especially if you get to work with a group from a different area on overtime one weekend. the most enjoyable part of the job was learning something new, always having something to do, even if it was something random, and different, and being able to count on others to help you if you needed it.

Utility worker (Former Employee), Pasco, WAJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: good breaks they brang us food at times good hours
Cons: n/a
I worked morning there everyday my job would be different I worked in the onions sorting placing as they came out the machine. I also worked in the potatoes cutting the bad parts. I worked in packaging all items placing them in boxes taping so they could get ready to ship.i worked in the warehouse where I worked in shipping and receiving I loved working in warehouse its always fun fast paced that's what I like to do. my co-workers were all good people you don't talk much when working so its different. I think the hardest part about that job was working in the fryers so hot uncomfortable to breath u have to drink water every 15 min. I really enjoyed my time at conagra I would love to work for them again.

I had an overall good experience working for ConAgra. We had a Union and had awesome health insurance for our families. The hours were great. Management had some issues with communication skills. Unfortunately the plant here in Garner, NC shut down and moved to Ohio.
