Forklift Operator/ Back in trailers (Former Employee) – Cleveland, NC – August 28, 2017
This was a good place to work and learn new things. I was taught how to back in trailers in the dock and take them out in just weeks.The hardest part working there was my hour drive home after working 3rd shift. I had good managers on all shifts that i worked and I enjoyed the company dinners and the employees
Micro Ingredient Hand-Adds (Former Employee) – Gettysburg, PA – August 9, 2017
Southern States is a good company to work for. There pay is considerably higher than other competing feed mills in the area. The holidays are rough however, expect to work 12 hours shifts in the weeks before Christmas, New Years, Thanksgiving, etc.
Assembly Specialist (Current Employee) – Hampton, GA – July 11, 2017
My co-workers are fun and we all get along great. This provides a great work environment! There are a lot of pros and cons, but the same can be said for any job. I have been with the company almost ten years and I've seen a lot of changes! Some good and some not so good. One thing I appreciate is the job stability!
Wages are good considering what a lot of other companies are paying.
There isn't much room or opportunity for growth within the company.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Statesboro, GA – March 6, 2017
I enjoyed working at southern states i learned a lot about the benfits of cotton not only is it use to make cloths its seed is used to make cooking oil. A days work was standing for long hours while i listened to my music to help pass the time. our manager was very respectful an kind if we need a day for a doctors appointment he would let us take the day off no hesatation . the hardest part was i would have to say is there was a section where we would have to stand by a door where the bail would drop an we would have to iron the bag down an all that cold air would be hitting you with nothing to block it.
A typical day at work i would load up company trucks with fertilizer, and take care of customers orders. I've learned very little while working here and there is no room for advancement. The pro is that i met very nice people that i worked with and everyone for the most part got along.
Nice co workers and customers
No management and little to no room for advancement
Assembly Specialist (Current Employee) – Hampton, GA – January 14, 2017
Southern States in a typical day to day operations and the part I play in ensuring that product is efficiently being built as well as being operated correctly. I have a team of 3 including myself that build and operate our products. I've learned how to operate machinery in high and low voltage and also work closely with the engineers enough to be offered a position, but turned it down because it was financially feasible, which is very difficult on a day to day base because I want more be intrical in the designing of the product.
Extreme overtime, Job secruity
