Marinations Operator (Former Employee) –  Siloam Springs, ARApril 4, 2019
Simmons Foods was a great job. If I didn't have to move to Florida, it would have made a great career. Everyone there is really helpful when your new, and share the same work ethic as you'd expect. Great place.

This company is good to work if you're looking for something quick. The communication and moral of this company are low. Management never interacts with the employees.

Not a bad company
Machine Operator/Pallet Jack Driver (Former Employee) –  Van Buren, ARMarch 28, 2019
Don't be lazy and it's easy to move up, especially if you're bilingual. Most of the management is willing to work with you if you're an asset to the team

horrible place will never go back.
Shipping and inventory Clerk (Former Employee) –  Siloam Springs, ARMarch 28, 2019
Management will stab you in the back and then get you fired. They don't care that you have a family and they don't care about you. They do not follow proper procedures on hiring new management they pick someone from inside the plant that is their buddy or someone from outside that is their buddy and has no management experience whatsoever. The people they pick do not care about you or the plant they care about themselves and how to screw people. I am warning all now to stay away from the sfi-wet plant in siloam.
Pros
some people were cool, benefits
Cons
management, horrible hours and working conditions

The building stays cold so if you hate the cold this mite not be for you, fast paced which was great the time flew by, loved my co workers made me feel right at home, the leads and supervisors were willing to jump in and lend a hand when needed, fun place to work if your willing to get a little silly but with caution
Pros
Great co. Workers, good pay, a lot of overtime if wanted
Cons
Cold wet rubber nonslip boots is a must

DEMAND MANAGEMENT INTERN (Former Employee) –  Siloam Springs, ARMarch 25, 2019
The workplace culture at Simmons was very team oriented. If one team member failed or succeeded, everyone failed or succeeded. Management constantly stressed how important it was to put people first and results second. Safety was always a number one priority.

Managers are jerks! Treat you like a second class citizen. talk down to you and show absolutely no respect for employees. The work is fairly fast paced with little to know rewards for extra work.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
managment is disrespectful

Process Control Technician/Manifestor (Current Employee) –  Van Buren, ARMarch 11, 2019
They expect you to do other people's jobs in addition to yours. You will work a mandatory 6 days per week every week. You get points toward demotion and termination any time you are late or absent regardless of reasons or circumstances. They will demote you and then make you do the job they demoted you from, but at a lower pay rate. Overall, management cares nothing about you.

Good place to start
Manager (Former Employee) –  Van Buren, ARMarch 6, 2019
Simmons Foods is a great place to start a career to get ready for the next step. The politics are really cut throat and the management team is really clicky. If you are in with the right group you will go far. The corporate ideology which is great, is not followed at the plant level. I would only recommend Simmons as a last resort only if you are unable to find anything else. Corporate Management team is top notch but plant level management teams are very lacking, inexperienced and do not follow the Simmons Corporate ideology.
Pros
Some of the employees
Cons
Management, Pay & Culture
