Laid back enviroment
QA (Quality Assurance Agent) (Current Employee), Dillon, SCApril 11, 2015
The Perdue Hatchery is a good place to work if your looking for a more laid back environment. There aren't really no strict time schedules, just as long as you get your work done management doesn't care. I don't much care for the assistant manager that much, he doesn't have any respect when talking to anyone.

Laborer (Current Employee), Perry, GAApril 8, 2015
Pros: free lunch, good trips, lots of vocation
Cons: short breaks, monthly pay
My day out preparing for breakfast,making grits,biscuits pizza,eggs and other breakfast foods,setting up the serving area so the students can be served. After breakfast was a small break before starting to prepare for the lunch meal. I learn some baking skills, some salad dressing skill, how to prepare vegetable and fruit for a thousand people at a time.I learn how put the daily paperwork in the computer. I learn to work with my co-workers to get the work done in reasonable time .the hardest part of my job was stocking the stockroom and freezer and cooler.I most enjoyed going on trip for the school distinct.

Demanding labor while being part of a team
Certified Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Milford, DEApril 6, 2015
Pros: Discounts on chicken and working with others
Cons: Freezing temperatures
A typical day involved preparing orders of mass quantities of chicken in large freezers for shipping to various stores in the area. I worked well with co-workers and management. The hardest part of the job was getting used to the freezing temperature, and working with others was the most enjoyable aspect of the job.

Productive
Production Line Leader (Current Employee), Lewiston, NCMarch 30, 2015
Pros: Bonus check, meal tickets
Cons: short breaks, pay rate
On a typical day at work I trim boneless chicken breast on a assembly line making sure the bones, blood, and fat is cut off the meat. I also run the machine time to time making sure meat is place right in trays and the go through the packing process. I work on the line with 10 people. The most enjoyable part about work is that everyone works as a team and get along.

cold and wet
Breast Trimmer (Former Employee), Rockingham, NCMarch 29, 2015
Pros: Decent pay, health benefits
Cons: The supervisor had their picks of which employees they licked the best.
Its an ok job not the best by far. It requires a lot of really wanting to work there to survive in some departments because of the cold weather.

Great hard working people
Laborer (Former Employee), One of many, all the sameMarch 23, 2015
Pros: family culture/privately held
Cons: cheap on raises
Good company overall. Perdue for me is a company that makes great products. I learned to be proactive in the job, you have to be seen as an associate that provides value in operations. Regardless of how hard you work, if they don't see it you'll get cut. The management at Perdue is better than it was when I started there. Not sure what the future holds.

Work no Life
Deboner (Current Employee), Perry, GAMarch 18, 2015
Pros: plenty of overtime
Cons: low pay rate, lack of management, lack of training, lack of personal time
This company is definitely for someone who has no family or isn't in school. There is little time to do almost anything outside of the job. They notify you at the very last minute that you will be working late or on the weekends. The turn around rate (how fast people are hired/fired/quit) is extremely high because they barely train you and they expect you to dive right into something you've never done before. The hiring process is ridiculous-they walk you around the company for four hours (no pay) then you must wait for a supervisor to interview you which takes another two-three hours. The start pay is close to minimum wage (9.00/hr). However, it is a great job to get on your feet because you will get all the hours you need.

fast, friendly setting
Trimmer (Current Employee), Woodville, N.C.March 12, 2015
Pros: overtime is optional, healthcare, wellness center on site
Cons: short breaks, cold atmosphere
A typical day at work is fast pace and steady for 8 or 10 hour shifts. I've learned to stay consistent at Perdue Farms Inc. I have daily contact with my team leader and supervisor. We talk often about how we as a team can improve productivity. The hardest part of the job is driving one hour to get there. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with friendly people and working in a fast pace setting.

Pros: its a paycheck
Cons: outgrages prices for food, heavy work load
Perdue Farms is a headache as a pallet jack driver there is no since of being organized they give you equipment that halfs way and expect you get the job done regardless. There's a since of favors among supervisors and there no set time of getting and the work load is to much for one person
