Production Supervisor/Production Planner Scheduler (Current Employee), Smithfield, VAMarch 28, 2015
Pros: Annual bonus
Cons: You may never see your familly again
Zero work life balance. Management is out of touch. Treat their employees the poorest of any place I have ever worked. Pay is standard, but the bonus is good. This company needs to learn to treat people as valued members of an organization and not slave labor they can take advantage of. Absolutely zero teamwork.

Benefits Specialist (Former Employee), Smithfield, VANovember 18, 2014
Training does not prepare you for the stressful calls, no help from management, and the low pay. Steer clear of this job if you have other options. Work environment is filled with employees who has been there for a while and not willing to train new people.
