Great people working under a disorganized system

With the good, it pays pretty well, even with minimal experience and they'll keep you busy with the work being done. The people you work with are extremely helpful and supportive which is about the only thing keeping a person sane while working there.Now the bad, the hours are extremely inconsistent with some days ending around 3 am. You come in at a set time but figuring out when you go home is a gamble every day. Despite having supportive coworkers, management will find a way to minimize it or control it and ruin whatever teamwork is going on. The work-life balance is nonexistent as you will work 10+ hours almost every day and be too tired or have no time for yourself. Lineworkers can work 14-16 hours per day and there is no system that is keeping it organized or efficient or even making it better for them. The Meat and Poultry plants are polar opposites.

Pros

Decent pay, Great people to work with

Cons

Disorganized, extremely long hours, no work-life balance, stressful

Early Mornings

Laid off due to Covid. Was promised a call back. Drivers have returned but I have not been called back. Overall experience was great but lots of favoritism.

All good for me

Great opportunity to advance my skill sets to those who needed them. Enjoyed the teaching aspect of the position. Also enjoyed the travel. Covid 19 brought it all to a quick end.

Pros

Fun people

Cons

Weak leadership

Worst management ever

Company is family owned, owners are the best people I have ever meet, they are kind and care about employees, unfortunately management doesn't go by that vision and don't care about company but themselves, racist and very rude, they go by who they like or are friends of...jeopardizing productivity, if you want to keep your job be ready to lick, be ready to be disrespected and shut up HR? Useless

Not a good company to work for

Unless you are part of the family or from Texas A&M you are not treated fairly. The pay is fair and so are the benefits, Father is very tough to work for in the family run environment.

Great learning experience

Martin foods is a food industry where I am working as a production scheduler. It is a good company, great people with a good working culture. It really has experienced and knowledgable people from whom I am learning great things.

Management is horrible

The production Management/Supervisors cause a lot of conflict and drama always trying to get people fired or in trouble , it’s a horrible environment.

The favoritism

If you are Hispanic it's an easy place to get hired. Also if toy have a family member working there already. I personal think it is only a stepping stone nothing to make a career.

Awful Experience

Management are non-communicative and will gladly shuffle you out the door when they are done with you, cannot give a low enough rating. Would give zero stars if i could.

Great

Great company to work for. I’ve supported staff by processing returns and preparing credit memos for customer refunds, as well as organizing and stocking incoming product. • Logistically provided aid to higher management; executing a wide variety of office task and preparing products for shipment while ensuring customer satisfaction.

Learned a lot, loved the work

Was given ample opportunity to learn new skills, improve current skills, and help others. Enjoyed my bosses and the way the trusted me with the work. Got to be creative and work hard. Stayed busy with a complex, fun job. Unfortunately, got laid off with a budget issue. Really sad to go, though.

Think about it before accepting a job!

You can work up to 70 hours a week. Long long hours. Unfortunately upper management don’t appreciate the real hard working people. Their mentality have to change and also they have trust issue. They only trust legacy employees who are protected by owner and they will never get discipline by their actions.

Favoritism and lack of Management

Management sells you dreams and doesn’t fulfill you with the opportunities they promise! No way of moving up or space for opportunities because the 3 head guys in night shift aren’t going no where and they even tell you that. The job here should be part time because all you evere going to be here is a regular warehouse worker with very minimal raises

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Nothing
