Processor Worker (Former Employee), Kinston, NCOctober 6, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: short breaks, stinks in the building, bad coworker's, supervisor favoritism
I learned that working on a processing line you have to move at a steady pace and not slow you have to be on point when working and the hardest part of the job is working with some boss coworkers that think they know everything just because they been there longer then you think they the supervisor and the enjoyable part is the job itself and the hours – more... and pay rate – less

Specialty (Former Employee), Moultrie, GASeptember 30, 2014
Pros: 40 hrs, ok pay rate
Cons: work placement, bad directions/info by evreryone, just becareful not to get spaced out after so much tension.
Learned: To work with others, communication, pace changing.
Management: More or less, wish the higher ups were more concerned about the workers fair work.
Co-workers: Don't get friendly with most since they turn on you when things go wrong. Some are really down to earth and share the load.
Hardest parts: Dealing with bad workers, dealing with higher – more... ups that would put you in a job you obviously can't do.
Best parts: Can wear a shirt due to normal cold temp, few good supervisors/ workers, good pay, 40 hours. – less

wing rounder/shoulder cutter (Former Employee), McComb, MSSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: 40 hours plus
Cons: great healthcare plans
The day would start of fast and end fast. I learn how to cut a chicken propery and get it ready for packaging, The management there was fair, didn't really have to deal with them as much. The co-worker were helpful and all worked together to get the job done. The hardese part of the job was standing in one spot for 8 hours in a cold freezer. The most – more... enjoyment of the job was when we didnt have that many chickens to cut and wasn't so crunched for time. – less

Bagger Operator (Former Employee), Waco, TXSeptember 15, 2014
Cons: management was nominal, new hires are introduced to their supervisors and the first thing he says is "i don't mess around".
Not a good place to work. Supervisors talk to you as if they had no sense at all.

Deboner (Former Employee), Moultrie, GAAugust 13, 2014
Its just like going to school I always said. Clock in at 7:30 work until 4:15. You're doing the same exact thing repeatdley so once you leanr there is no hard part. Co workers are the coolest thing about the job. No comment on managment. Most enjoyable part of the job was friday/payday.

Packer (Former Employee), Bryan, TXAugust 4, 2014
Pros: there were great benefits
A typical day at work was just packing wings being able to listen to my music on my headset. Working with co-workers was a lot of fun. The hardest part was having to go over a new department and help. You had to engage and learn fast it was challenging and fun. The part I loved the most was doing my job.

No job security they stated in orientation that they have a revolving door as far as employees.
Packer and Back-up Support Technician (Former Employee), Kinston, NCJuly 7, 2014
Pros: raises and co-workers.

Gizzard Puller (Evisceration) (Former Employee), Moultrie, GAJuly 2, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: short breaks and underpay
Working at Sanderson Farms, I wouldn't say it was the best but it was ok. I learned how to work as a team and not just by myself all the time. The hardest part about working at Sanderson Farms was trying hard to work in such dramatic workplace where you had to continuously look over your shoulders because of the poor management. There were more fights – more... than there were fun, therefore; I would mind my own business so I wouldn't get into any trouble. The most enjoyable parts of my job were going to work, getting my work done and making the money to support myself. – less

Line Worker (Former Employee), Hazlehurst, MSJune 16, 2014
Pros: we had 2 lunch breaks.
Cons: sometimes we had to work weekends when we were supposed to be off.
I would hang birds on an assembly line until my lunch break. That was my only job for 9 hrs. The management wasn't really the best. The hardest part of the job was staying in the cold for so long. It's a poultry processing plant so it's near freezing inside. The most enjoyable part was meeting new people and being away from home knowing that I was making – more... money. – less

Poor work environment, not sanitary, no team work
Poultry laborer (Current Employee), Kinston, NCJune 13, 2014
This company needs better management and an employee sweep through. Workers do not care about cleanliness of plant or chicken that is being processed. Employees will pick chicken up off of the floor and throw it back on the belt to go through for packaging. Supervisors are arrogant and not team leaders. Turn over is horrible. Instead of keeping good, – more... hard workers that follow rules they critique every little thing and do poor write ups. They fire employees left and right and are constantly having to hire new people that have to be trained. Ridiculous write ups for clocking in from lunch 3 minutes to early. Plant needs to be evaluated and employees need to be treated respectfully – less
