Watch your back while working there
HR is terrible- has favorites and takes care of them regularly

Not for me
PACKER (Former Employee) –  Searcy, ARApril 16, 2018
The job just wasn't a good fit for me. I didn't like the work, because it made my hands cramp. I worked 2nd shift, but I'm not sure it would have made a difference.

Sanitation Technician/Quality Control (Former Employee) –  Lansing, ILFebruary 8, 2018
I worked 3rd shift it was hard work but not as hard as other places being a sanitation tech. Lots of over time opportunities.
Also alot of mandatory weekend work.
As long as you can work in a group and communicate alot it a decent job.

High Management Turnover/Lack of concern for employees
Management (Former Employee) –  Lansing, ILOctober 31, 2017
High turnover in upper management creates a highly unstable environment. The company's management fails to take into account the needs and challenges of its employees.

Small Company Growing Pains
Director of Brand Management (Former Employee) –  Lansing, ILSeptember 25, 2017
Aiming too high without the right talent to get them there. Great "doers" but to much Sr. Leadership drama to make much progress. I wish them the best of luck,

Innovative but slow paced
Food Safety Manager (Former Employee) –  Searcy, ARJune 27, 2017
Work day was filled with several activities, very lean operation that could use more staff, local management team cooperative and willing to engage in problem-solving, food safety priority, multiple tasks create difficulty to focus on a set amount of projects - continue to build sometimes without closure.
Pros
Discount meat sales
Cons
tasks are not prioritized and continue to build, slow to accept new ideas

Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) –  Lansing, ILApril 9, 2017
Good place to work to a certain extent. Definitely a language barrier, most workers speak Spanish and only Spanish. A lot of leaders depend on their workers because they don't know their job fully.
Pros
Experience
Cons
Too much on one person

Demand Planning Manager (Former Employee) –  Munster, INAugust 23, 2016
Fun place to work...Family atmosphere. Would recommend this place to anyone. Privately held company so you don't have to deal with all of the red tape of a normal public company.

Great place to work
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Searcy, ARAugust 2, 2016
Busy from the time of arrival until time to leave ensuring orders completed and arriving in a timely manner. I gained useful knowledge and experience from working with all departments within the Land O' Frost community as well as outside brokers and customers. Upper management has a lot of knowledge/information to share with other employees. I worked with some great people. The most difficult was not enough hours in the day, at times, to do what needed to be done. The most enjoyable was knowing that I was able to help a customer to their complete satisfaction.
Pros
Profit sharing, potlucks
Cons
short breaks/lunches, lots of overtime

Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Madisonville, KYJune 10, 2015
It's not a bad job. Management is not intelligent. No communication between departments/shifts. 3rd shift gets left out and forgotten. The (very long list of verbal) rules only applies when it is convenient for management (a fact that currently is causing them legal troubles). The maintenance department is staffed by amateurs. The benefits are constantly getting trimmed. They bought out a competitor and shut that plant down. Two of three plants are union and the company takes advantage of that by cutting back benefits at the non-union plant. It's a good place to start out, but once you get experience, LEAVE.
All the actual work there is easy, but the negatives outweigh the positives. This place needs a union.
Pros
Decent pay.
Cons
Unfair management
