Stacker in Canton, GA
on May 12, 2022
As a stacker in the cut-up department, I can say the job is very simple yet boring. Being young, the job doesn't stress my body too much after adapting to the routine. Although, you do pretty much stand all day if that's an issue. The long hours also kill with a skewed sense of when to leave since it varies day-to-day. Personally it's a good job to make quick money as long as you're consistent and don't mind repetitive work.
Production Worker in Sumter, SC

The whole place sucks the pay is low but the want you to break your back for it. 1st gets to go home if the chicken trucks aren't there but 2nd shift has to stay all night. The place smells so bad it gets in your clothes and soon as you know it you can smell it every where you go.

As long as you learn and try your best show up for work everyday then you will be golden. But if you are lazy don't show up for work or have bad attendance then nobody in management will hear anything that you have to say.

This is a great place to work. This company is very organized with great benefits and insurance providers. They are fair and will help all employees in ergonomic situations they fit the job to you.
