Production / Floater (Former Employee), Waterloo, IAMarch 25, 2015
Pros: Good benefits
Cons: Not enough hours at times
this job was very stressful and cause injury. Fast paced but need team work and organizing. The hours varies with production and you can go from having 40 hours to 30 very easy. This job goes by the demand of it's customer's. This is the food industry. Lots of heavy lifting which I did not prefer.

Tyson machanics
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee), Columbia SCMarch 25, 2015
Pros: The fast pace and everything coworkers were there to teach you.
Cons: Short lunches and early hours
This job was very face paced and enjoyable, but due to a layoff I didn't get to stay as long as i'd of liked to. We would usually do daily pm's and fix any machinary. On weekends we would do complete rebuilds of things that were on heavy use and needed to be rebuilt to keep from breaking. The co-workers were big on helping another team member if the required help and would even lend a hand just because. Managment was always there to give advice and listen to what you had questions about. The hardest part of the job though would be the life and work balance seeing as you only got every other weekend off, but do to the fast pace and multipule things theres were to do and fix you were always learning and improving which made the job very enjoyable.

Depressing, inhuman work conditions.
FSQA (Former Employee), Goodletsville, TN.March 24, 2015
Pros: Health insurance.
Cons: Bad management staff, extremely bad work conditions.
Extremely bad company,they do not care about you nor your needs. Very bad work conditions. A normal day at work is going to work under cold temperatures,they push you to do 5 people`s job at the same time,no consideration whatsoever, supervisors will pretend to be nice to you but when something happens they will try to blame it on you to get away with it. Only thing good about Tyson is the health insurance, other than that its the worst company i have ever work with.Tyson has been sued more than 5 times on the beginning of this year by its own employees due to not paying your rightfully own overtime,bad work conditions, poor management staff. They will force you to work holidays,new years eve 12 hours shift and if you do not come to work you will get points and once you have 9 by the end of your starting work day you will get automatically fired no questions asked. Overall one of the worst places i have ever worked.

Leader (Current Employee), Glen Allen, VAMarch 22, 2015
Pros: nothing
Cons: nothing
Never work here. They take advantage of their workers. Never get a raise people that have been working there for 40 + years only get a penny more than me, and that's not every years. Every time you think you're going to get a raise the insurance goes up. Win lose situation. Smh. Its very sad to say. I wouldn't recommend my worst enemy to work here.

Team Member (Former Employee), Broken Bow, OKMarch 12, 2015
a typical day at work for me back then would be clocking in for work at 9pm and working my hard with two breaks through the night and a lunch then off at 730 am and getting my kids ready for school when i got home . I learned that working a hard job like that is great for some but others no . i loved the hr and all the supervisors there . The hardest part of my job was working in freezing cold atmosphere for hours and standing none stop . the most enjoyable part of this job was the people and getting to learn new things .

MAINTENACNE MECHANIC (Former Employee), South HutchinsonMarch 12, 2015
Pros: good benefits decent pay
Cons: short sighted management
Management decided about 88 days into my employment that the company needed to loose some of its expenses and they decided maintenance was the place to do it even though we were already undermanned. However the maintenance section was a wonderful experience and I hope i find another place with that caliber of people.

Pros: going to your car for break
Cons: short breaks
I HAVE BEEN WORKING AT TYSON A WHILE, I HAVE LEARN HOW TO MAKE BOXES, HOW TO BAG THE BOXES, HOW TO WEIGHT THE CHICKEN , HOW TO PUT THE TOP ON THE BOXES,, HOW TO TALLEY BY USING THE SCAN GUN TO SCAN THE LABEL ON THE LEG QUARTER BOXES. THE MANAGEMENT OF THIS JOB WAS WRONG, EVERYTHING JUST WAS NOT FAIR. THE C0-WORKER I HAD TO DEAL WITH, WAS HARD TO DEAL WITH, NOBODY I WOULD NOT WANNA DEAL WITH, WITH OTHER JOBS. THE HARDEST PARTS OF THE JOB IS THECO-WORKERS. THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF THE JOB WAS GETTTING PAY.
