Fast pace
Laborer (Former Employee), Monmouth, ILMarch 1, 2015
Pros: continuelly working and the time went fast, no time to worry about if you are doing a good job.
Cons: i could not get anyone to releave me to go to the restroom, they just didn't care.
On the line at 6:00am cut parts of meat about 3 seconds apart and break at 9:00am back on the line till lunch and then back on the line till the off time. It's not the job for me. The hardest part of the job was not getting to go to the restroom when you had to go ..

It's exactly what you expect at a pork slaughter/processing facility
Blender Operator (Current Employee), Monmouth, ILAugust 19, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: mis-communication between management/supervisors
The benefits are good and the job isn't too demanding. The management is overall ok, but could use some improvement. My co-workers are pretty decent and the benefits are pretty good. I also like how an employee can just go talk to the plant manager without needing an intermediary to talk in the person's place...just walk right in, ask to speak and speak...that's it. The hardest part of the job is the times when communication between management and supervisors is either non-existent or doesn't match, resulting in problems. Overall, not too bad.

Cold Conditions with good benefits and advancement available
Lead (Current Employee), Wichita, KSApril 1, 2014
Pros: great insurance, 401k, good pay
Cons: long hours, cold conditions, early waking up
Control and Manage the Hot Dog department from set up to shift change. Work with many ethnicities and progress through my ability to understand the equipment I work with. Given a schedule before setup and responsible for ensuring my department begins on time. I also am responsible for communicating machine failures and product failures to Supervisors and Maintenance.

I wish to move away from production and learn more of the equipment I have become familiar with.

A well stocked break room
Packaging Operator (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOFebruary 23, 2014
Pros: $1.50 hourly attendance bonus per week
Cons: the company over the last 2 months has had workplace violence.
High Production volume with high emphasis on quality of the hams and ham pieces. Fast pace environment. The management is strict and in compliance with environmental standards in accordance with the EPA. The hardest part of the job is dealing with a cold and wet environment. the most enjoyable part of the job is shared rotation of the job stations to prevent injury from repetitive motion.

Maintenance Inventory Lead (Former Employee), wichita, ksDecember 2, 2013
Pros: discounts on bacon, ham and hotdogs
Cons: the smell of these cooking
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.
