Lots of learning opportunities, great benefits, very cold.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Sheboygan Falls, WI – February 1, 2017
Johnsonville is a great place to continue to grow and expand in many areas. Unfortunately they fire as much as they hire. It is a very diverse company, and communication throughout the plant needs to be worked on. Overall I enjoyed my days spent there. Very fast-paced and constant change was the hardest challenge there. Working in the food industry and a cold environment can be difficult at times. The hardest part of my day was not knowing when I would get done ( 2nd shift does not leave until all the meat is produced and packaged). I liked being kept busy, the challenges, and always learning new things. My typical day involved a lot a heavy lifting, and was very fast paced, so my days flew by. I feel I took as much advantage of what I was offered. I gained so many different skills and knowledge that will benefit me for the rest of my life.
Pays for schooling, great benefits, and profit sharing. Two breaks, and lots of overtime offered.
Very cold environment, no sick or personal days. Not a great location for driving durning the winter.
