Perdue is a dependable work place working with good people, a place where you can establish a decent way of making a living, and better yourself working at Perdue consist of focusing on product and quality.
You will have no life working here. Its miserable. They dont care about your wellbeing as long as that chicken is cut. They will say the pay is good. Is it really good enough for 10 hours of your life? They dont pay you what they say youre suppose to depending on department.
I don’t recommend unless you are willing to sell your soul to this job. They will work you to death or starve you to death. They are ungrateful for the job you do and the management treats you horrible. .They scream and hollar at you. They don’t respect your time or the fact that you have a family
The people you work with are amazing
They will work you to death
Very flexible with starting time and not demanding. But have to be ready to fix machinery ASAP when down. Manager will show that they are with you and really not. High turnover on workers and constant alarms going off
Flexible starting time
Worker turnover, HR not for some employees and very poor pay for what a worker does

Top management need to understand that the associates are stressed to the max when they demand high output when understaffed. Machines keep breaking, people don't show up for work, and it's your fault if people quit. Hours are too long. Will move you around to different departments. High turnover rate.
Fair salary, good benefits
over worked, high stress, high demand
I enjoy my job. The shift schedule is the best I have heard of or worked. 12 hour shifts, 7-7 shift work. Three days off (Saturday, Sunday, Monday) every other weekend for shift change. My work schedule looks like this. Off s,s,m, work t, w, off t, f, work s,s,m. No forced overtime. People are willing to switch or pick up your shift if you need to do something on a work day. Vacation is called PTO, it’s accrued over time. Every week you get a set number. What I dislike is the holiday pay is straight time. No OT for holidays worked. Bonus, I think I have seen maybe 100.00 bucks. No turkeys or hams for holidays. 401k is decent. Health is decent.
Time off, work schedule, home work life balance.
No time and a half pay for holidays worked, No holiday incentives like turkeys or hams. Bonus is lacking drastically.
Not a good place to work. If your desperate and need a job yeah maybe but a career here is not advised. Leadership here only cares about one thing putting chicken in a box. They don’t care about your your kids your home situation etc. would not recommend this place to anyone. Not even someone I disliked wouldn’t do that to them.
Worst management team ever no one every wants to help your always on there time all have favorite and that stick together with in supervisor and higher up Rockingham NC worst then prison Lowest paying poultry plant ever rush you you know how to do the job no time to learn no trainers
It’s a paying job with benefits
Pays litte to nothing compared to the nearest Tyson foods or pilgrims Chicken Mountaineer
Toxic environment. Went through 6 maintenance guys in my time there and 3 managers. Favoritism is apparent. If they like you attendance doesn’t matter and you can do whatever you want
Good starting pay for maintenance.
No work life balance. No advancement opportunities. Poor teamwork and leadership
I was hired as a Production Laborer. The pay is good, but you earn every cent. The job quickly took a toll upon my body, and continued to be grueling. I was constantly bounced around from one department to another, in often very hot and cold conditions. Getting a day off or being out sick is practically impossible. If you don’t speak Spanish, then you will feel very alienated. After just 2 months, I finally quit, after expressing my concerns to my immediate Supervisor fell upon seemingly deaf ears.
Good Pay. Nice Cafateria & Break Area.
Short Breaks, Communication Issues, Thankless Work, Serious Lack of Commradship.
