They tell you at orientation that we are family here at Wayne Farms and they mean it. I had a tire with a slow leak and my supervisor stay over after his shift to help me plug my tire! Great poultry processing plant.
Debone (Former Employee) – Laurel, MS – May 17, 2017
Decent place to work and make a living. Some days are more unbearable than others. As long as everyone reports to work and does their work, it's decent. There are too many people in Management that don't care about the work and employees. Some of the Supervisors expected too much from the workers. Some of the Supervisors used retaliation on certain employees. I had a few encounters with race related issues with a Manager, and nothing was ever done. Towards the end of the changes the company made, they never paid the employees the back pay that they were owed. I left the company still being owed for work that I performed.

As far as the individuals you wok with, they're typical. It's what you'd expect from work among a hundred individuals -- a lot of mess. So for the most part in just stay to yourself and do your job and try as best as possible to avoid the mess. As far as the administration, they could care less about the employee. As long as productions made, they are happy...

Poultry Processor (Former Employee) – Decatur, AL – February 28, 2017
A typical day at Wayne Farms included working side by side with other employees on an assembly line. As each chicken passed an employee a specific job was required. My job was to cut the breast exposing it allowing the next person an opportunity to finish cutting it off the chicken.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Dobson, NC – January 22, 2017
I personally enjoyed working at Wayne Farms. If you don't mind handling raw chicken and cutting it up to be processed and packaged, then this is the job for you. There is plenty of opportunities to advance in the company and raises are always being given out because they understand that you have to keep your workers motivated in a job that is so tiring on your hands and feet. It isn't necessarily a hard job, just straining on your muscles.
Machine Operator/ Assembler (Former Employee) – Decatur, AL – October 1, 2016
I really appreciated Wayne farms for employment and stability for the time being that I was an employee there. They offered competitive wages and income to provide for me and my family the drive was just to far for me. I was offered a position closer and more suitable for me considering my own personal circumstances.
B&b operator (Current Employee) – Decatur, AL – September 21, 2016
I'm a b&b operator on 2nd shift. I work my butt off every day. It seems like the lazier you are the more money you make. The management is a joke. They will make you work in the heat all night then go work in the cold. You have no life at this job. Work 6 to 7 days a week. Work days starts at 3:30 but never know what time you'll get off. Once I'm gone from this place I'll never return.
No life, don't know what time you'll get off, management
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Union Springs, AL – September 20, 2016
