Field Worker (Former Employee), West Memphis, ARSeptember 18, 2013
Working at Pioneer was a very enjoyable part of my life. I love to work outside and I love to work with my hands which made this the perfect place for me to work whenever I was in high school and earlier stages of college. Generally the days dealt with all of us going out into the field and taking tissue samples of all of the plants for research. On – more... days that we did not do this we would do odd jobs around the shop and on occasions I would have to make deliveries to other branches of Pioneer. It was a great place to work along with great co-workers who were very good people. – less

Detassling and Derouging Career
dettasler and derouger (Former Employee), Cuba, ILMay 4, 2013
Pros: meeting new people!
Cons: weather conditions varied
I started detassling when I was in seventh grade.. I was very nervous at first but warmed up very quickly. A typical day consisted of pulling tassels or derouging tall stalks of corn. I learned to work with a variety of people I did not know. I worked with kids my age from other schools, and unemployed adults that needed a job. Getting up at 3:45 a.m. – more... every morning got easier as the summer went on. The worst days were when it was well over 90 degrees and we had a long field that day. I think the best part of the job was definitely being able to work at a fast pace and meet new people. – less

Corn Pollinator (Former Employee), Princeton, ILApril 29, 2013
Pros: good pay, nice tan
Cons: short breaks, hot days
Most days were long and hot, but was worth it in the long run because pay was good and you usually got a nice tan out of it. Management was very nice to work with. Co-workers were kids my age and younger. Hardest part of job was when it was extremely hot out. The most enjoyable was getting paid.

Productive Work Environment
TAS Administrator (Former Employee), Tipton, INApril 19, 2013
Pros: my own desk, office area
Cons: the dust in the building
I would scan in documents for employees, verify their i-9's in e-verify. I would then have to put them in TAS payroll system. I had to prepare supplies for the field contractors. I recorded time cards. I put in their pay and timecards to make sure everyone was paid. I learned to be more patient with technology. I learned I may have to slow down for – more... my co-workers. The managment is good. The hardest part is that I was so fast paced and quick and not everyone else is. The most enjoyable part is the reward of knowing I did a good job. – less
