Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Noel, MO – November 6, 2013
I started off at Temperanceville, Va and it was one of the best if not the best place I have worked. Great people, especially fellow managers, especially Plant and Complex. But I agreed to go to Noel, Mo a little over a year later, thinking that alll Tyson plants were run the Tville way...BIG MISTAKE!!! Ive never so many people that get paid to make decision, going in different directions in my life. The day I started I showed up bright and early to fill out paperwork, and then my boss tells me to go home and be back at start up of 2nd shift. When I return he and the HR Manager asked one question that to this day stands out in my mind "what do you need from us to be sucessful?" I replied with one request...To show me what Standard Staffing for the entire shift and to guarantee me that i would have this many team members plus 10% buffer for absenteeism or at least exhaust all efforts to do so. When we parted ways less than a year later, i had less people on payroll that I did when I started and we were at least 40 hourly and 5 salary team members short of having enough to fill Standard when i started. Excuses Excuses Excuses and then the finger pointing and back biting became a way of life there and you can pretty much figure out the rest of the story. No wonder Noel, Mo has the reputation for being the "death sentence" of plants...it earned every bit of it.
Great place to work good money and benefits i learned everything i did wit in a couple of months .i ran a packing machine that wrap the product and we shipped the product out then i helped maintenance out with putting the film on the machines and help make adjustments

I learner to inspect and to operate the pall of jack.the management was poor, they treated people differently depending on who you were and if they liked you or not.the work culture was not good because so many people go through there on drugs. I did enjoy the job I was doing, I love to work.
Stressful place to work, lack/ poor communication & poor attitudes

Management is not what is should be. I do not agree with the ethics of the company and how things are run. I learned a lot but was not supported by management. I believe that the hardest part of the job was getting along with the different personality's in the different departments.
The company is effecient with its handleing of product and ensuring that it gets checked and ensured that it is high quality consumable product. The plant is competitive within the employees. The job fullfilment within the company does need some changes.
Back up ventor (Former Employee) – Wilkesboro, NC – July 20, 2017
I loved working at Tyson it was good money and good people the only thing was the hour drive I sacrificed for two in a half years and when it was time for me to go back to college they didn't want to work with my school schedule
The job was fast paced but it was not conducted profesionally. I had some safty concerns with the way that the transportation was dealt with. It was very stressful and fast paced. I did like the job but had conflicts with management
