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

Project Coordinator/Pricing Analyst/Account Manger (Current Employee) –  Oakwood, GADecember 3, 2018
I would highly recommend anyone to work at Wayne Farms. Your co-workers and upper management become family within weeks. You never have a dull moment and you are always challenged with Food Service and Projects.
Pros
Monthly Food Functions; Tastings; Benefits
Cons
Corporate; No advancement

Loved my job
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Dothan, ALDecember 17, 2018
Didn't feel like I had an equal opportunity at all. management constantly nitpicked me even when I wasn't at fault. Reported on multiple occasions by chain of command the problems I was facing with supervisors as well as line leaders but nothing was ever better only worse.
Pros
Great pay and benefits
Cons
All about who you know

no room for advancement and terrible management
Batching Operator (Former Employee) –  Decatur, ALJuly 24, 2018
This is not a place for advancement. You will get maybe $0.15 raise annually. If you are single, have no desire to move up in the company, and want to work 6-7 days every week, then this job is for you. I DO NOT RECOMMEND WAYNE FARMS!
Pros
good vision and dental insurance
Cons
horrible management, work every weekend, no family time, dog-eat-dog atmosphere

Its a good starter job
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.

Pallet Jack Driver (Former Employee) –  Elkin, NCJuly 23, 2018
I liked the job. The people there are very nice and the salary is good. The hardest part of the job was right after 2nd lunch when it got really busy. The most enjoyable part of the job is about 1 hour before you leave when you start realizing the chicken is slowing down
Pros
You can leave site to go eat
Cons
It’s to confined inside.

Licensed (Former Employee) –  Dobson, NCApril 7, 2018
Stay small, under the wire, because if you try to better yourself, or do whats right, you will be fired, or written up for something. Everyone is afraid youll do better, or cause them to lose theyre job.
Pros
Paid vacations, 401K, Medical
Cons
Poor management, And process coordinators

Pros
Good benefits and the pay is good.
Cons
The breaks could be longer.
