stressful, "married to the job",not family friendly and underappreciated by the local plant management.
Quality Control Auditor (Former Employee) – Beloit, WI – April 19, 2019
Hormel Foods it's a good brand.
I worked at the plant in Beloit ,WI for almost 4 years.
employees must undergo a grueling 90 day probation period,during this time , people will have to work up to 15 hrs daily(thank god the union don't allow more than 15 hrs straight)
the environment it's noisy, hot,micro-managed by several "supervisors",
the working atmosphere it's that of a sweat shop
management and employees are against each other because there is a union at this plant.
there is a "point system" in place(9)
this company gets kick-backs from the federal government by allowing employment to fellons, refugees, veterans , elderly, lgbt and other minorities.
I couldn't believe that in one year period they hire more than 120 people but less than 8% stay in, the turnover of employees is gross.
they try to fire people by any means at this plant. don't get hurt and get FMLA, because YOU WILL BE GONE !
great benefits, unlimited overtime
only one wk vacation on 1st year, 2 wks after 2 yrs, 3 wks after 7 years...smelly.noisy, indoors 100% and all of the above stated
