Management is completely useless, often saying one thing and doing another. While, the money is fair for the area, it is completely horrid for the field of work. Most pay rates top out at around 14 dollars an hour if lucky and then will stagnate for the foreseeable future. Benefits are fair, but are no substitute for decent working conditions.
Often you are "pigeon holed" into an area that management likes you in and you will remain for the extent of your career with the company.
Good job with nice benefits and career opportunities
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Lumber Bridge, NC – October 14, 2015
When I first got to Mountaire Farms I was able to accelerate in my department. Learning how to produce more than the goal. After my supervisor noticed she gave my different responsibilities within my department. We worked ten hour days Monday through Friday. We were also allowed to work overtime if offered. I eventually was responsible for one out of four of my department's production line's. This meant i'd be dealing with ten members of my department. Everything from sharpening their work materials to allowing them breaks. Having to punish those not making the goal with written warnings was the most difficult tasks, I believe. My supervisor was very helpful in motivating us all to exceed our goals and also open to new ideas. I chased every opportunity to learn more or make extra money.

My typical day starts at 520a where I go to the line and begin my work schedule. I have learned the ins and outs of this company. The coworkers make sure they get their job done. The hardest part of the job is working long hours and not being sure of when you are getting off.

I loved it there. Very family oriented and willing to help their employees in time of need. A typical day is very fast paced and busy. No time for horseplay. Very goal oriented as well. The hardest part of the job are the goal expectations of the employees; but they were always met.
I have worked at mountaire for a little over a year-and-a-half. During that time I have held several positions and moved up fairly quickly. Its all bout communication, networking and being able to market yourself. If I could do it anyone can.
free food, raffles, family days, health care facility
A typical day at work would be very fast pace due to this being one of the largest poultry plants in the country. I learned a lot from working with such smart coworkers and managers. Dealing with the pace of this facility was a challenge. But I enjoyed working at a facility that size.

A typical day at this job was wonderful. I learned at been at this job was how to take care of chicken the right way. The management was very polite, respectful, and kind. My co-workers was very helpful to me and respectful. The hardest thing was making sure your line don't get backed up. And the most enjoyable part of this job was working in the cool air and meet so many polite people also the bosses was very kind and will work with you.
Very diverse place to work, meet a lot of new people. Learn a lot. Very fast paced, but can easily be learned within a week. Everyone is willing to help out one another. Upper management notices hardworking individuals and would be willing to help you move up in the industry, if they feel you are ready.
Benefits, pay is decent, meet a lot of new people, health clinic on site, free lunch at times, etc.
When you've shown supervisors(in particular) how hard and good of a worker you are, they expect that everday. They expect too much from you everyday, not realizing that you are only one person.
Go have breakfast with some co-workers. Then go to work station an began my work on time. Good management. Easy to get along with. When i had to work in the cold. Family day, special days when the employer did fun things with the employees.
They give gifts on holiday and raises every so often.
You have to work ten years to get 3 weeks vacation.
