Typically we worked really strange shifts at Farmland. We could work as little 8 hours and as many as 14 when needed. The managers did not have a lot of credibility or integrity and my co-workers did not respect them for it. The hardest part of the job was getting used to the smell.

Meat Cutter (Current Employee), Monmouth, IL – July 26, 2013
everyday has its problems.I work 8 or 10 hours per day when the company is in its busy time and less than 7 sometimes in slow time.I learned many things such as how do my job, the importance of safety, and how to work with people can disturb all day. For the management, it is failed. It is failed because they don't care about humans' health for example. – more... They put high the speed when they want. I learn also that the injured people are people who are going to be fired. About my co-workers, I can say we were borne and rose in different ways with an education system. It's too hard to work people who don't have the same point of view with you but I do my best to be their best friend and make fun on them so we can work in good harmony. The hardest part of the work is the knife died or when the line is full loins with a speed. Have good knife, work with a normal speed, nothing is more enjoyable than working this condition. – less
