Terrible Management
Anonomous (Former Employee), Strawberry Plains, TNNovember 12, 2014
Pros: great employees
Cons: short lunch breaks, the gm, old equipment.
Short lunch breaks. Pay is low for what your asked to do. Most managers are good however the GM is a major micro manager who shows favoritism to certain employees and is out to get others. Safety is important to the employees. PAB is held above your head by management to keep you in line. Employees are great there with the exception of the GM and a – more... his cronies in the new office. – less

great co-workers MANAGEMENT IS NO GOOD, IS VERY DISLOYAL TO WORKERS
route driver (Former Employee), Gastonia, ncNovember 12, 2014
Pros: every week pay
Cons: management don't care about you
Great place to meet new people but to build a carrier (NO) there is no open door policy which they try stressing, work you like a dog while treating you like one at the same time. Job is steady but their is no room for mistakes, YOU WILL HAVE TO BE A PERFECT PERSON, but honestly I was here for 5yrs & I loved my job I mastered it, but I was Making the – more... company money for the entire period I was there illegally & it wasn't a problem as long as I didn't get caught (& I didn't) but they got a lil scare & I was fired behind my 5yr wrong doing, which was okay as long as you was making the SMITH BROTHERS(owners) MONEY. If you wnt to wk 5 - 6 days & home daily (10hrs hometime) & get some experience GREAT PLAY TO START BUT ASK THE GUYS ABOUT THE TURN OVER RATE. Dnt plan to retire. . Start pay is great – less

Great Place to work.
Tractor Trailer Driver (Former Employee), Amarillo TexasOctober 29, 2014
Pros: kept the trucks and equipment up.
Cons: healthcare not so good.
Great place to work.
You have to put up with some gross stuff but the work is easy, and the pay is "okay". You won't get rich here but it will pay the bills if you live modestly. Co-workers and Management were great.

A great place to grow
Manager (Current Employee), NCMay 27, 2014
Pros: benefits, a company that cares, growth and promotional opportunities
Cons: long hours
VP is a great place to work if you don't mind working. Many of the posts I've read are most likely by people who do not enjoy putting a hard days work. Yes sometimes the hours are long, but the rewards are worth it. VP often promotes from within, so it pays to stand out and do your job to the best of your ability. The products we deal with are not for – more... everyone, but if you can build up a tolerance and look past that, you're in for a rewarding career! – less

Work is easy management is sub par
cleaning (Current Employee), NCMay 3, 2014
Pros: easy work
Cons: uneducated management
Okay. The job and work is super easy. The big problem is the management is uneducated. They think book smarts runs a plant that is experienced based. They fire all the people that have been through the tough times for people that have no idea what they are doing. Plant managers don't last any longer than a year at brst. Promises of money but you never – more... see any of it. The first sign of something going wrong they panic. That does not sound like someone that is I charge and know what they are doing. Believe me when I say it. They repeatedly and mercilessly fire employees. They do not care about the regular working man. And they are the back bone of the company. Osha violations to the roof. Have had workers hurt constantly. But yet they somehow cover it up. If you apply for this job plan on not staying there long. 100 percent truth that I'm telling you avoid this job if you can. I don't know about other plants but I do k ow for sure Valley Proteins of Rosehill NC is not the place to be. Do yourself a favor and move on if you want to keep a good relationship with your wife and family – less

Nice company
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCMarch 11, 2013
Typical day was always steady. Some busier than others. Learned a lot of job experience with using different computer programs. Management wasn't the best to work with. Co-workers are 99% men. I mostly worked independently. Hardest part was deciding certain things about sending grease loads. Most enjoyable was the pay being that this was my first job.

Decent Job/ So So Management
Route Driver (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDFebruary 7, 2013
Pros: above average pay
Cons: sub par management
Valley Proteins is a fairly decent company to work for as long as you don't mind getting your hands dirty from time to time. The fleet is mostly late model vehicles which is a plus but the routing system and the management is problematic. The pay is above average compared to other places that I have worked at but the company has just switched most of – more... the drivers to a four day work week which has drastically reduced the hours. All in all its not the worst company to work for that provides a stable workplace but as with any job its far from perfect. – less

Valley Proteins seems to be a pretty adequate company.
Control Board Operator (Former Employee), Accomac, VAJanuary 28, 2013
Pros: exercise, change, friendly co worker, good management
Cons: the smell
A typical day at work, started in the break room with for all employees on the shift. After the safety meeting, all employees head to their designated area. My job was to check my machines and operator board for any problems, if no problems arise then I take fat samples or help other team members. Management is pretty good, as long as everything is – more... running smoothly. Co-workers are helpful and friendly. There really wasn't anything hard about the job simply because I viewed the hard work as exercise therefore making the situation work in my favor. The most enjoyable part about the job was the constant pace of change and having to adapt to those changes. – less
