Production worker (Former Employee) – Ashland, AL – December 7, 2018
I worked at Koch foods for 8 yrs and it was by far my worst job experience in life. You can not move up within the company no matter your work experience or Seniority. I was threw under the bus twice when applying for a job that I was well qualified for which was higher pay and better benefits you would think that after you gave a company 8 yrs that would as least st and for something..... Not at Kochs. I applied for the same job position twice the first time I lost the position to a Work Release worker.. Second time to a lady that had only been with the company a couple of mths and I do mean a couple. So unless you know someone in upper management don't expect to grow in this company. They are the creators of the "buddy" system. I would rather pick cans up then to ever go back to this HOLE!!! Also with the made up position that they have for new hire trainer beware of him too.... A snake in high grass if he grows to not like you for whatever reason then you can be prepared to be harassed. Fyi... Thank me later❤
Safety Coordinator/Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rockmart, GA – December 4, 2018
This was a start up facility where documents and procedures had to be written prior to start up. A typical work day was writing SOPs for production and Quality, conduction safety orientation for contractors and working on training new hires. I loved this job, the Safety Managers and Plant managers support. Hardest part of the job was leaving.
Shoulder Cutter (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – December 3, 2018
Modern day slavery, won't let you use the restroom. Get a point for going to the doctor. Man baby dies, tell him he can't leave. Not enough breaks, no one to relieve you, nurse just wrap your hand send you back when they know you can't work.
Warehouseman (Former Employee) – Franklin Park, IL – November 25, 2018
Hired for 3rd shift position. Not enough work to get 8hrs . Had to ask to start earlier to get hours and work. RF Scanner problems. Have to double check every order because pickers mispick and system is not state of the art. Horrible RF scanner and never loader or picker friendly.
Clock in and do nothing
Clock in and create a job. Good luck getting a truck to work also

Floater (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – October 19, 2018
I was fired for abandonment. I walked off the job. Some fellow employees sexually harass me and management does very little to resolve the issue. 95% of the workforce there is Hispanic. Employees and managemet are clearly on drugs there. The hispanic supervisors warn me about reporting ceiling water dripping onto the chicken. All they care about is their production bonus.these people forced me to lose my job intentionally. Favoritism everywhere. But the pay is great.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Morristown, TN – October 14, 2018
Work on a production line taking different parts of the chicken and packing it and sending to restaurants for customers to eat. I worked on the nugget line. We had to separate the fat and other waste that didn't get sent to the restaurants. Also get the nuggets between a certain weight for each restaurant. Each restaurant has different size chicken nuggets.
