Stressful workplace with way too much favoritism going on.
Live Receiving Hanger (Current Employee) – Hickory, KY – May 28, 2014
The product (chickens) is more important than a human. You feel unappreciated and they are constantly changing the rules. I hang live chickens into shackles which means dealing with feces, dust, feathers, etc. You have to hang 30 birds a minute. You also have to deal with childish coworkers who are constantly horseplaying.This should be a last resort if you are looking for a job.
Decent insurance and pay. Cafeteria. You get three breaks a day(two short and one long)
Stressful, Strain on the body from repetitive motions, Never know what time your getting off, Too much favoritism, Hard place for advancement, Management is lazy.

Workload in general can be involved but the biggest obstacle is not the work itself, it's the people you work with. There are not many team players. They promote people first and a family environment but most the time this is not the case.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, TX – June 23, 2017
We loaded freezer trucks with chicken all night. Management was nice but sometimes demanding. We worked in freezer so it was always cold, but I love the cold. The hardest part was stocking the freezer bays without damaging pallets. The fun part was having acceptable break times with great benefits and compensation.
As a member of the maintenance team, the supervisors think you should live at the plant. There have been several times where they change the planned COB at the last minute. the job itself is good, with plenty of helpful coworkers.
Line Leader/Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Guntersville, AL – February 25, 2017
I love working there ,you got a lot of team work there. It's a good place too work at . It's just cold. But I work in the cold area for about a year and then I went to Eve's were it's warm and become a Shift Leader. Good environment too work in.
SHIPPING (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – February 6, 2017
I enjoy working in shipping loading trucks. I am basically my own boss. Good medical insurance. Low hourly rate no room for advancement or raises. What you make is all your going to make even if you are moved up to a leadman position it is only 0.50 more per hour. However can work all the overtime I want
