Extremly fast paced work environment with 3 shifts available.
Line Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Gadsden, ALJanuary 21, 2018
Typical assembly line work that is nonstop....constant moving. Unfortunately if you get on third shift you are not able to transfer to first or second until after the first six months of employment. Company has poor starting pay but excellent dental, vision and health insurance including paid vacations..

Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNJanuary 8, 2018
Just want to say I wouldn't recommend this place to work in to anyone. Back stabbers. Always calling maintenance cause everything always broke down and they wanted to blame maintenance for it. Just wanted patch work to keep going. Company didn't care about employee,just how many chickens they could get out.

None

Not a Career
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Morton, MSJanuary 2, 2018
This company does not value its employees. you can be let go for almost any reason. No advancement and little pto. Also morale Is low and management overall is poor. The compensation is fair for the job and overtime is unlimited. Basically this job in my opinion is only until you can do better by no means is it a CAREER!
Pros
weekly pay, fair compensation
Cons
Low morale, poor work life balance, 6 day work weeks, poor management

Great place to work but a lot of terrible employees
Floor Technician (Current Employee) –  Pine Mountain Valley, GADecember 22, 2017
The company doesn't fire excessively bad employees when they have very bad habitual violations. Some employees cuss at supervisors and each other and all they receive are write ups. They break a lot of rules and have absolutely no respect for company policy.
Pros
Great place to work.
Cons
Too many employees breaking company policies and getting away with a slap on the wrist.

Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNDecember 20, 2017
The job requires one to be prepared to cover more than one persons job at any given time. I learned to be more patient. Management seems to be overwhelming. The hardest part was lack of organization. The most enjoyable part was prep.
