Challenging and rewarding, yet extremely unorganized

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The company is great and I hold Cargill in high regard. They have not moved on past COVID and continue to struggle with new employee onboarding and training. It was difficult to make connections. There is a mixture of great employees and not-so-great employees. Due to disorganization, poor training, and ineffective workplace structure I left.

Unfair work practices

New employees can have OT taken from them by another employee that's been there longer even though they volunteered first and the rotation schedule is a plus depending on the home life.

Pros

Paid lunch

Cons

Not a steady schedule and unfair work practices

Inclusive workplace

Worked here for an internship. All of the employees I interacted with were very nice and supportive. I really liked the workplace culture, but not necessarily the work that I was doing.

Puts off important work until breakdowns occur to maximize throughput

Company offers good experience for new graduates, but exploits them by pushing them into/backfilling Mid-Senior level roles and sets them up for failure. The people there are enjoyable to be around, but the company consistently values throughput over taking care of mechanical issues within the facility. Safety is a very important thing, but is driven mostly by management.

Pros

Lots of Opportunity, good well-rounded experience

Cons

Work/Life Balance, overworked and underpaid
Was this review helpful?

Easy work, underpaid

Those of us that can keep up on production floor, work harder than the ones that can’t. Management doesn’t do anything about it. A few of us help with all the breaks (five) and we are not compensated with all the extra work we do every day. Not even a thank you.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Not compensated when you work harder

Good Job but lacks cultural

Not a bad job at all worked long hours during covid. Work hours will always fluctuate but always opportunities for more hours lacking culture sometimes it feels like your just there to work but learned a lot overall

not the hardest job, poor management, poor pay

not the hardest job, poor management, poor pay . Seems to have a tendency to retain the lowest quality human beings, so if you like to work in a scrummy environment, this might be for you.

Fun

Great pay. Good comments about management and co workers that work with u. It's cold but you get use to the temperature especially if you have worked in cold and damp wet environment before.

Good long-term career opportunities

Since it’s a large plant and a large company there are good long- term career opportunities either here at Eddyville or elsewhere. Tuition reimbursement means you can get a good- paying job then also earn a degree on line over time.

Typical warehouse environment

Cold environment.Decent pay.Good for anyone who only wants to work. Worked on average 60 hours a week. Attendance bonus.30 min lunchOne 15 break if you are getting off earlier.Two 15 breaks or one 30 if you are getting of later.Work with raw meat so it can be wet and stinky. Never know exactly what time you get off. You come in at 7 and could get off anywhere from 3pm-6pm, and always tell you last minute when you get off or if you are working the weekend. Expect you to come in 30 before a shift for safety meetings about once a month.

Management is poor and lazy and disreseptful you will pay for their inability to do their job correctly very high turn overs and expect to do 2 or more jobs no work life balance youre expendable all they want is a number thats all that matters.

Pros

Paid holidays

Cons

Favoritism and everthing elese
