Not a good place for a female to work.
Forklift Operator/ Checker (Former Employee), Pottsville, ARAugust 27, 2015
Pros: Insurance and 401K
Cons: Working with a lot of men who did not respect women
There are 4 shifts that are 12 hours long each. I would get to work at 6:20 am and work till 6:45 pm 3 days a week and 6:20 am - 12:15pm one day a week. While my time at Tyson, I learned how to drive a forklift and not to trust anyone you work with. Management is a joke here. They will tell you one thing and do right the opposite. Co-workers was okay. The best part of my job was the pay check at the end of the week. I made a few friends, but it is hard for a woman to work with a ratio of 8 woman to 45 men.

Labeling Department (Former Employee), Wilkesboro, NCAugust 22, 2015
The job was very easy, and moved at a steady pace. I learned a lot from that job, and even volunteered to work in other departments. This enabled me to learn more about Tyson Incorporated, and I developed the ability to adapt to any environment I was assigned to. It made me more attentive as well as the ability to help solve problems if any occurred. I had more than one position working as a fill- in for the box room. The management was very efficient, organized, and friendly. Interaction with co- workers was great as long as it pertained to the job. Any job I participated in was not hard or overbearing. What I enjoyed the most was a balance of mobility and sedentary positions at Tyson. I also enjoyed the duty of being an overseer in some of the positions I was required to do.

The easiest job I've ever had. My co-workers are all really good to work with/for. I enjoy being able to go outside to have my lunch. I was an underground miner for 15 years, so this is a luxury for me.

Team Member (Former Employee), Pine Bluff, ARAugust 17, 2015
Pros: they did offer rewards for great work
Cons: the breaks were short
My experience wit Tyson was typical for factory work. The hours were long at times but i did enjoy seeing my checks every week. I did not like the coworkers only because in a small town like that all the did was gossip and start mess. I did like the management a lot of them were down to earth a genuinely caring. The hardest part or the job of course was the standing in one spot on your feet. I was giving opportunities to learn different jobs. I learned to make marination, how to work different machines, and how to cut a whole chicken. I i did not have to leave due to my financial circumstances I would have continued my employment with them.

At Tyson you have to option to try several different jobs in one place. I enjoyed seeing where and how our food were handled. I enjoyed working with USDA the most. Learning about health and the proper way to handle, clean and package meat was interesting to me.

Not a very good place to work
Blast Loader (Current Employee), Shelbyville TNAugust 14, 2015
Pros: Good insurance
Cons: They sometimes don't pay you your money
I work in the blast and I have worked there for five years and they can often be very unfair about things.The pay is not enough for things that you have to do and the hours you have to work. You do not get enough time off for the holidays.

Best place to work - Job Security
Professional Truck Driver (Former Employee), Springdale, ARAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Always in a new State
Cons: Very little down time
Typical day was 10 hours of driving with a 30 min. break. from State to State (over the road, throughout 48 states). How to be a safe and courteous driver was the most learned. Management, they were very patient, compassionate and knowledgeable. Co-workers were all team players, always willing to lend a helping hand. The hardest part of the job was not being able to go home nightly. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with and for a great group of people.
