I want to go back. I got sick and fell out trying to go to work. I found out I was having bad reactions to my high blood pressure meds. I just found this out. I'm healthy now and would love to go back if, they would let me. I will stay forever.
Pros
Union
Cons
Some of the management have their favorites.

Challenging atmosphere but that is to be expected, but the monetary compensation is the only questionable thing. Not quite competitive with the market

My manager was a micro manager. He was the complex manager and was always yelling at workers, including me. He gave no direction and would make you try to figure it out and when you can't read his mind!

None

Everything is pitiful about this job, management doesn't care about you they only care about getting the chickens done. The supervisors are lazy and dont give a thing about you. They will slave you to death.

It was a cool job, I just didn’t like my position. The hours were great & the pay was great if I could’ve moved to a different area I would still be there.

It was a good place to work at but then again, we worked really hard some days and I felt as if I didn’t have any rest. Pilgrim Pride did help out a lot of families and help boost income.
Pros
Free meal tickets for the first week and also $50 gift cards for the first week of work.
Cons
Short breaks
