A typical day at Pioneer Hi-Bred consisted of waking up somewhat early and going out to be in the sun. Surrounded by corn stalks in a corn field we'd take brown paper bags and put them around the top of the cornstalk; this got all the pollin in the bag and provided a chance for management and other workers to cross breed the corn stalks. At Pioneer Hi-Bred I learned that I love to be outside, I also learned a little about pollination. The management was pretty good overall, no problems there. The culture was awesome. Being around agriculture was great and top it off with being outside, you couldn't beat it. The hardest part of the job was just being bored from time to time, but it was definetley worth it. The most enjoyable part of the job was being outside around smiling faces which made it easy to stick around.
Being outside, being around agriculture, good management, decent pay rate, smiling faces, team work
