Good money...No life

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The place is a great place to work if you're after a big paycheck with a good overall benefits package. No doubt working at Simplot is a place to get some money in your pocket...that's ONLY if you NEVER want to see your family, friends, or loved ones ever. 1 day off a week. Maybe.. if you're lucky.

Pros

Money, benefits

Cons

You live there.

Like a prison sentence.

Forced overtime with little notice. No real training. Everybody hates being there but the wage keeps people. Benefits are good but paid time off is a joke if you can even have the chance to take it. If you took this role or ones similar, do not expect to make plans on your scheduled days off because they aren’t truly yours. Processes are ancient but if it isn’t broke they don’t fix it. That goes across the board with their business there. A big waste of my life and hopes going to work for there. I passed up some really good jobs to take that role which is sorta false advertised, and it was a huge mistake. I started looking for work after two months and found a much better job after four months.

Pros

Wage

Cons

Surprise forced OT. They own you….

Great Job of you're wanting to work locally

Pay I felt was too low for a local driving position and for someone with many years driving experience. They seem to start every driver of at the same rate regardless of experience and there was no room to move up pay wise.

Pros

Local, 401k, easy work

Cons

Pay to low, seasonal work

Good pay, bad management, rumors

Simplot is a good place to work but after working almost 3 years, I have not had a raise ever. People who start make the same as me and they usually don’t know how to work. Manager feels like he owns the place and has no respect for his employees. No way to move up in the company unless you kiss a** and are a Yes guy. Hours are fine but the work environment is terrible. I recommend it if you want a starter job but not as a career.

Pros

Pay, benefits, hours

Cons

Management, run down equipment, no raises

Good Place

Good place to work. I liked the managers and the work. I would work for them again just that life changes sometimes for us. Good benefits but some management was bad.

Excellent company for motivated individuals

Management truly cares about their employees and customers. Safety is a real priority, as well as food safety. Employees are treated extremely fairly.

Pros

Great benefits, fair amount of PTO, plenty of advancement opportunities

Cons

Harvest keeps us busy during the summer, expect longer than usual hours if you're salary.

Consistent work, managed well abroad but poorly at the local level

Work was clear and defined, Was not always given the tools needed to complete a job but managed anyways. Great culture of safety and good people throughout the organization. Management is a good ol' boys club which can be challenging to deal with and maintain good morale.

Pros

Good benefits, pay, time off

Cons

Front line management

Minimal Time For Family. Minimal Pay. Minimal Appreciation.

Job Salary was $50,000/year (hourly) to start with great benefits, raise at 6 months, promotion in 1-2 years.60-80 hour weeks for 6 months straight and 45-60 hour weeks the other 6 months. Even with this OT I did not make $50,000.The raise was less than $0.25/hour after more than a year at the company. Promotion positions were eliminated or filled before my eligibility.Many employees started looking for other jobs recently - morale is low, and the employees are taking their frustrations out on each other.

Pros

Great Benefits + PTO

Cons

No Family Time, Minimal Pay

If you aren’t a Supervisor or higher they don’t care about you

Their point system is set up poorly, if you aren’t sleeping with someone in management or HR you don’t matter. Long hours, mandatory overtime if you show an initiative, The more you produce the more they expect out of you.

Pros

Decent pay

Cons

Management, Hr, point system, mandatory overtime last minute.

Gained experience

Gained experience in the manufacturing of food processing industry. It was a good first job. Good money for what it was. I quit because it was a 30 minute drive from my home.
