Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee), IndianaJune 18, 2015
Pros: clothing allowance, friendly environment
Was a good place to work. They downsized and laid off employees. One of their Core Values is Respect for People. They didn't show respect for the employees when they came in and laid off 40 people in one day without any notice

A typical work day starts at 7:30am and ends around 4:30pm except during planting or harvest. It is not a high stress job. great atmosphere and co workers are like family. A great place to work and a great company to work for.

Management is a joke
Production Technician (Current Employee), Plymouth, INMay 12, 2015
Pros: vacation time, 401(k), benefits
Cons: constantly switching shifts
Pioneer used to be a good place to work up until about 3 years ago. Once they started adding layers and layers of management things started going on a downward spiral ever since. The old saying is true, too many chiefs and not enough indians.

Field Work
Field Worker (Former Employee), Peoria, ILApril 8, 2015
I would wake up at 3 a.m. in order to catch the bus that would take me to the cornfields where we would work. We arrived there around 4 or 5 a.m. and start working until 3 or 4 p.m depending on the weather. We had 2 breaks, one of 15 minutes and one of 30 minutes.
Though my co-workers made it fun, and we saw our job like a competition to see who could work accurate and faster. The management were always very attentive providing sometimes food to the whole group.

Long history of being a good company to work for. However, as the company transitions more to DuPont and further away from Pioneer, respect for employees is decreasing.

Being a Fortune 500 company this is a great experience to have. It shows how a multinational works, how competition affects the company and how the uncertainty of the market has made changes.
