Production analyst and Quality Assurer (Former Employee), Morton,msMay 20, 2015
Pros: I love the paper work, My lead person was very understanding

This was a great company. I got to meet people from all types of backgrounds. The upper management was friendly and understanding. I would recomend the company to everyone. A typical work day for me were at least ten hours, sometimes twelve hours, But they were worth it !!! friday was my favorite.

Great teamwork with co workers. Maintenance management could use better people skills
Electrician (Current Employee), Morton, MSApril 17, 2015
Pros: good people to work around. excellent teamwork
Cons: poor maintenance management
Set up the production lines to run at 6 a.m. answer calls to all equipment throughout the day. Offer help to fellow maintenance workers, as they do me. Management has it's ups and downs. they could care about their employees a lot more. Nothing is real hard to do. Some parts are time consuming.

a typical day at koch foods is basically keep the line running. mainly be on time as other people depend on the time to perform a determined job. I learn about quality product and how important is to work in team. Coworkers and very helpful. The hardest part of the job is conditioned body to extreme temperature.

It was decent
Debone Specialist (Former Employee), Pine Mountain, GAFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: its hands on work.
Cons: some of the co wokers are horrible
It was a very past work environment. their employees are very messy and the supervisor will show favoritism. The hard part is trying to get the bosses to see your point of view.

Terrible Management, Rude, trashy people at Kock Foods
Confidential (Former Employee), Morristown, TNJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: overtime usually needed
Cons: short breaks, bacteria, salmonella, ammonia exposure.
Koch Foods COULD be a great place to work, but the management make sure to instill that you are never good enough, and that you can and will lose your job at anytime, and even tells people they don't have to give breaks. The supervisors and shift leaders will sabotage anyone they don't like and force them out the door. They have a "Lighthouse" employee reporting hotline, which is a JOKE because it just goes to HR, and if you are reporting any wrongdoing by management, they just excuse it because they all clique together. If you are Hispanic, you have JOB security, but the drama, and turnover among the whites/blacks is astounding! The "Long Time" employees will sabotage new hires to keep the turnover rate flowing, out of fear of being replaced, and eventually get promoted. Profanity and harassment is rampant throughout the plant, and they tell you, it's a chicken house, get used to it. Management and Shift leaders have a Slave-Driver mentality and thrive on authoritarianism because they get a power thrill, being most of them are felons, so at Kock Foods, they get to "be somebody"

Chicken Factory.
Hand Assembly (Former Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 25, 2014
Pros: plenty of overtime.
Cons: the compute, management, and the stinch of raw chicken.
Typical day at work consists of, Trimming the fat off boneless, and raw chicken breast. Shaping it to the required size, with skin, or without skin. Assembling boxes, and tops for different companies, how many ever the order required to put the 5-20 pound bags of raw chicken breast in. I learned how to assemble boxes, and tops, and how to operate a machine. Management was all over the place, my coworkers were over worked and under paid. The hardest part of the job was lifting 20 pound bags of raw chicken every 5 seconds, and making an order of 250 boxes and tops in 20 minutes or less. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people i had around me, i met a very diverse group of people with great personalities.

Packer (Former Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 5, 2014
A typical day at work for me is like any other day I have to work hard to be successful.
I learned the faster you work and the more effort put in your job the quicker you learn to grow and get notice for your hard work.
my management was fair and my co- worker were team players.
there wasn't any hard part of work for me because i catch on quickly.
