PRODUCTIVE
line worker (Current Employee), Lumber BRIDGE, NCMarch 16, 2015
Pros: interviews
Cons: actual work
A TYPICAL DAY AT THE JOB WOULD CONSIST OF, RUSHING TO GET THE APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF TIME TO GET ON THE LINE, BREAKS, DRESSED, AND USING THE REST ROOM. THE PAY WAGE DON'T MATCH HALF OF THE WORK THE EMPLOYEES DO, DEPENDING ON THE DEPARTMENT YOU ARE IN. SOME DEPARTMENTS GET OVER WORKED AND UNDER PAID.

Overall Good Employment
Deboner (Former Employee), Lumber Bridge, NCMarch 14, 2015
Pros: great staff, hard working people
Cons: short breaks
I liked the fact that everything was routine on a day to day basis. I knew exactly what to do and where to be at a certain time. My line leader and supervisors were very helpful friendly and understanding. The hardest part of the job to me was dressing out between breaks and having to wear so many gloves on one hand. It made it harder to handle the meat. I learned how to work with a team instead of as an individual and the importance of production efficiency, also how to closely inspect chicken for any abnormalities and how to properly remove them with specified tools. I enjoyed the fact that I could rotate positions if I wanted. Overall great general employment!

The co-workers are great to work with. The hardest part of the job is standing for a long period of time. The most enjoyable part of the job is providing quality product.

A workplace with a lot of unrealized potential.
Stackoff (Current Employee), Lumber Bridge, NCJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: acceptable pay.
Cons: lack of job security, unless you are in the "click."
At Mountaire Farms a typical day involves a lot of hard work, and acceptable compensation. While there,I have learned a great deal about food processing and shipping.

The management team at Mountaire seems capable, but is caught-up in the same types of political favors and disfavors that are observed at many large corporations.

The most enjoyable part of working there is the relationships between employees and the willingness to help each other. This is complicated, of course, by the attempts by management to control every possible aspect of the employee life. If you ever make a manager mad, they will begin to watch you for anything they can use to get rid of you. They try to pit employees against each other, and will overlook terrible violations of company policy by one employee, while picking-apart another employee who is not one of their favorites. This is the hardest part of the job...favoritism and politics.

production worker (Former Employee), lumberbridge ncNovember 19, 2014
Pros: free lunches from time to time
Cons: healthcare
a good day in mountaire farms is like a regular day,i've learned how chicken is processed from the time it arrives til the time they leave. my co-worker were great in fact we still keep in contact, the hardest part to me would to be making it to work because i barley had transportation at the time and what i enjoyed the most was being there to work because i was good at doing what i do.

Lead Person, bagged tenders (Former Employee), Red Springs, NCMay 2, 2014
I was the lead person, so I was responsible for making sure the other employees had orders put out on time. As well as bagging tenders we also made 40ib. boxes. What I learned from my job was how well I could handle stress. Such as being put in a situation were the meat came from the lines so fast onto my table that it fell on the floor. During situations like this I just had too stay calm and work with the flow. I like my co workers, but the hard part would be when they would take extremely late breaks, and I would have them written up. Not that I wanted to but me being a young person I didn't want the older people to think they could take advantage of me. But the best part was lunch. I got to relax, cool off and ;ugh with co workers.
