Perdue could be a better company if they would compensate associates that has been there up to 20 plus years with better pay. If upper management would treat everyone fairly, things would be much better.
off on some holidays
not enough pay for the job that's performed by some associates.
Inspector Assistant (Current Employee) – Perry, GA – February 4, 2016
Starting at 5:24 working closely with an USDA Food inspector to increase learning ability towards diseased birds, under the supervision of great management I strictly follow plant rules and regulations. Sharing an eight hr. workday with different co-workers is difficult at times but I handle it well. The hardest part of my job is getting up at 4am because I live an hr. away but the most enjoyable part of my job is learning new things.
Line Leader/Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Georgetown, DE – January 15, 2016
I have learned a lot. Very grateful for the experience/skilled. However, for the work performed, the pay is not as great as expected. Also the insurance benefits are expensive as well. There is not much opportunity for growth, but you do obtain a lot of skills. Also the job place is very diverse. Almost appears that not many americans have opportunity for advancement due to the amount of immigrants.
material handler (Former Employee) – Perry, GA – January 7, 2016
I liked how safe the environment was. there was always someone cleaning up the building keeping it nice and tidy. The hardest part of the job to me was just staying away from the negative influences that were present. The best part was the parties they were always throwing for us. Sometimes we had pizza, sometimes we cooked out for a safety party.
Acting Team Lead Trainee (Former Employee) – Lewiston, NC – December 21, 2015
Ok place to work. Fast paced and cold work environment. It is also wet. Long work hours in most departments. The benefits are great. It is hard to advance within the company, most upper managemnet positions are filled outside the caompany.
