This isn't a nice place to work.
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCNovember 21, 2018
The production floor is very COLD and WET, making it difficult to work. You are required to stand for long periods of time in the cold and wet. Management doesn't care.
Pros
I don't think there is one.
Cons
Difficult working conditions, very cold and wet.

Its an ok job
Truck Driver Class A OTR (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCNovember 14, 2018
Worked hard through the week. Sometimes it feels like you dont get time off. They run you hard and make it difficult for you to get days off. The pay is ok. Unloading at different customers is a different story. Wish they had a bonus for unloading, especially the 1,600 pound pallets of onions that you have to unload with a pallet jack

In need of a job.
Gatekeeper (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCNovember 8, 2018
Its a great quick pick me up job for those who need a job now to help pay bill. Its a quick pace job so it keeps you on your feet at all times. The people there are awesome mainly if you stay to yourself. I had a wonderful work family but nothing ever really stay the same there is always change and if you can't get on board with the change your are left in the back.
Pros
Mainly opportunities to move up in the company.
Cons
Always cold, Sometimes short hour weeks

Assistant Sanitation Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCOctober 19, 2018
McEntire is a great place to work and the pay scale is top in the competitive industry. Have the understanding going into this company that your work hours are subject to change depending on production needs due to customer demand. This company also has a great management team and great benefits.

A vary nice place to work
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCOctober 2, 2018
it is a nice place to work, because they train and promote within the plant. even though the plant is very cold and wet if you dress the right way you can survive it. I do feel that is where they can improve is teaching you the correct way to dress so that you will not get sick. Another great factor is you get paid every week .
Pros
weekly pay
Cons
very cold

onion cutter (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCSeptember 12, 2018
I worked on the onion line
cutting and peeling them for 8 hours wasn't no joke
the had a very strong scent and made your eyes watered
management was okay and the work place was cold and fast paced
the hardest part of the job was getting use to your eyes burning while working
the most enjoyable part was meeting new faces.
Pros
cold
Cons
short breaks

It is a stressfull place to work. Everyone wants to be the boss. Also managers dont respect u as a person.
Dryer Operator (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCAugust 3, 2018
Mcentire Produce is a good place to start but it is not a career building place. All they care about is getting the product out on time nothing less. They have no care about your health are well being.
Pros
Close to home.

Very stressfull.

Typical week
Tomato Repack Palletizer (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCMay 17, 2018
Within the area that I work, you are pretty much limited as far as work hours, advancing, and trying not to get pressured with being at work on time. Pretty basic.
Pros
Friendly co-workers, decent environment
Cons
Favoritism, non advancing, constant rule changes, budget
