Lung Gun Operator (Former Employee) –  Decatur, ALNovember 12, 2018
This job is good for those looking for something to get them by right now. It has a salary you can live with until you find something better, you get a pay increase every 3 months, and you have you basic health and dental insurance and a 401K.

Lead Person (Current Employee) –  Dothan, ALNovember 9, 2018
It’s not the worst but not the best either. It can get cold at times, fast paced, but a stable job. Supervisors and managers are okay, but half the floor employees are lazy. Hr is helpful sometimes but act like they don’t care most times. Safety team really cares and always helping out, but most employees and supervisors act like they don’t care if you get hurt or not.
Pros
Stable, decent benefits, management
Cons
Lazy employees, a lot of Saturday work, Hr

Pros
Great place to work and the pay was acceptable.

This is a very cold place to work year round.

Line Associate (Former Employee) –  Dothan, ALOctober 3, 2018
i enjoyed the experience of working at Wayne Farm. i learned different things about the product and how to work in a cold environment. its hard when you are start learning how to cut some of the product and getting use to touching the product because of the coldness but overall its a good job and a safe environment to work.
