Fun workplace
Process Lead Operator (Former Employee), Decatur, ALAugust 3, 2015
Pros: line goes down you could go sit until the line was ready
Cons: pay
A typical day at work consisted of marinating poultry to prepare it for cooking. I learned how to measure ingredients by using formulas and how to set temperatures on ovens to cook varieties of poultry. Management would rarely visit the floor because they trusted their team to make good decisions. My co-workers made working fun and productive while doing so. The hardest part of the job was moving older kill dates from the cooler that was below zero degrees and staying in there over 30mins. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and learning new things.

Productive and fast paste work exhibited
Batching Operator (Current Employee), Decatur, ALJuly 25, 2015
Pros: paid holiday, over minimum wage, and most weekends off
Cons: short breaks, hard to contact HR, impossible to move shifts
A typical work day consist of fast paste working around many different types of people. Everyday there is something new to learn. The management could be improved over all, being such a big company it's difficult to know who belongs to which department and theres always someone asking you to do something right after another. Other than work/life balancing it is hard to work the extended hours with children or other priorities.

National Sales Manager (Former Employee), Oakwood, GaAugust 21, 2014
Pros: really outstanding healthcare. solid company
Cons: confused vision as to what segment of the industry they want to be in.
Cold calls and follow up with existing customers.
Can do attitude; anything is possible for a price.Senior management commitment to value added not 100%. Great employees more than willing to do what is necessary to satisfy the customer.
Most difficult thing abouy this company is the politics within the organization.
t he best part of the job is being able to solve a customer
problem.

Large learning experience
Debone (Former Employee), Jack, ALApril 28, 2014
Pros: learn some valuable traits about the workforce
Cons: a lot of lazy workers used the union as a way to keep their job
I learned a lot about working in a production plant that thrives on speed. However, the biggest thing I learned is how to work with a variety of different people. There probably 50 or more ethnic races present at this workplace and we all had to get along. In my department we had 8 assembly lines with about 15-20 people on each line and each person's job affected the next person's job.
