Tyson is a good place to work in a specially for foreign people who just came to the states. There are a lot of employment opportunities there and they are always busy. I learned how to wort with knive without getting any hurt. The beginning was hart but finally it was fun.

MDM LEAD (Former Employee) – Wilkesboro, NC – January 11, 2017
Safety is applied in everyday process. I learned how to follow and let my leader guide me. Management wasn't always consistent and showed favoritism most of the time. My co-workers was awesome. They were more supportive than supervisors and leads. The hardest part of my job would be the travel to and from Tyson. Most enjoyable part of my job is when everything would go as planned and failing or needing to have a retest for samples.

People use perverted language and don't care about the people around them. the easiest part of the Job was pulling full pallet loads.
