the kinston site is not a very good place to work
supervision is done subjective rather than objective decision are often made on a personal basis than task- related.collected points of views are not allowed or avoided.

Live your job
If you enjoy working without any thanks or working for a bunch of incompetent corporate employees this jobs for you. Never any praise for jobs well done only what more can you do for me.

Decent pay, Horrible management
Spent nearly 10 years working for Smithfield. The management has greatly declined in the last 5 or so years. You can expect plenty of little buddy relationships. So if you aren’t part of one of those little “cliques” don’t expect to advance or be heard. Benefits are probably the only true Pro of working here because no matter how much you get paid it will not be worth the mental strain this place has on you
