Jennie-O Turkey Store is a great place to work.
Analyst (Former Employee), MinnesotaJanuary 8, 2014
A typical day for me is managing the day to day troubleshooting, and when that is complete, I work on projects. I have been able to expand my knowledge in different areas of IT in part due to the cross training that happens between groups. The management understands your career goals and helps align work and family so that they balance out.

Daily work
Farm Hand (Former Employee), Mapleton, MNOctober 24, 2013
We would start the day at 7am with basic chores. When they were done we would begin odd and end jobs that needed to be done for the day (these would include maintenance of things inside and outside of the barns, cleaning sites, and giving medication to the birds). Management was able to answer any questions that would arise and be able to explain any – more... out of the ordinary task that may have arose. The hardest part of the job was working in 100 degree barn in the summer when the site had new birds. It was not very challenging for the brain, but defiantly was challenging for the body.

I really liked working for Jennie-O. My coworkers were great! And you could tell Management really cared for the birds and the company. – less

Good Benefits, Staff Management Awful
Production Worker (Current Employee), Barron, WIJune 27, 2013
Pros
1) good benefits
2) good wages ( 12 $ per hour )
3) physical therapy covered by the company
4) low prices on deli products( really low prices)
5) gift certificates
6) gainshare
Cons
1) supervisors don´t impose discipline in the work area. Ex: if you´re working in a line and you have a co-worker that doesn´t like to work at the line that you´re – more... working, this co-worker can sneak out easyly to another line leaving the team short handed. and nobody cares of it, and of course you´ll say ¨you have to say something¨ and I´d say I´m don´t have to say anything, because that´s not supposed to happen.
2) Supervisors develop friendship with workers, turning them partials
3) there some workers that develop friendship with supervisors and using politics can influence supervisors, lead personnel to obtain personal benefits at others expense.
3) there are good people working in that company, but there are more bad than good people working in that company, and generally bad people are people with seniority, who already have some type of influence with management and uses it to make you work twice harder, so they can have a little break.
4) and if you have any physical disability, such as obesity, back problems, muscle problems, etc..they will put you to work in lines where you have no chance to last long, and preferably in line with staff shortages, to make you quit. – less

Electrical Maintenance Projects Supervisor (Current Employee), Willmar, MNApril 21, 2013
Direct maintenance electricians as production calls come in, fun, very fun to troubleshoot with employees.

I learned how to train and direct new employees that have had no electrical experience.

Hardest part is to have seven new bosses in seven years of employment.

Most enjoyable part by far is going home every day with accomplishments!

Stable Job but beware of the "mafia" aka management team
Line Lead (Former Employee), Willmar, MNAugust 19, 2012
Pros: pay, benefits
Cons: management
Enjoyed working for the company. Biggest downfall is the management team. There is supposedly an open door policy but it was never followed through. Best part of working there is the pay and benefits.

An employment recruiter even referred to the management team as a "mafia".
