A well ran company with excellence
Warehouse Manager St Lucie West, FL (Former Employee), st. lucie west, flAugust 29, 2014
A typical day at work is to come in and make sure all forklifts are being charged, paperwork finished and make sure my crew were getting there assignments done throughout the day. I learned how to take on bigger responsibilities and to drive a forklift. My co-workers always got the job done quick, fast and safe. The hard part was when I first started – more... in packaging and i had to learn fast because i usually had to multitask. The most enjoyable part of the job was the experience I've had with learning how to drive a forklift and how to be a productive manager. – less

hard work, repetitive
cap skinner (Current Employee), Friona, TXAugust 27, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: potential for injury
A job that keeps you on your feet for 8 hours. It requires the use of hooks and knives and repetitive movements causing strain on hands and arms. There were a lot of different levels of management. A significant amount of my coworkers did not speak english. The hardest part of the job for me was the repetition. The most enjoyable part of the job was – more... that I was paid weekly and the pay was good. – less

HR generalist (Current Employee), Dodge City, KSAugust 24, 2014
Great place to work. Although there were some rough days overall I built myself in Hazleton. It is a tough culture in the meat industry and even more so in the north east.

Working as a legal secretary/administrative assistant in a large corporate law firm
Legal Secretary/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Wayzata, MNAugust 17, 2014
Pros: working with good people, good benefits, good pay.
Cons: not given enough time to complete work by deadline.
I worked for 3 assigned lawyers in a large corporate law department. On a typical day, I would answer the phones, type up documents and correspondence, make copies, distribute mail, and fax and deliver documents. I learned how to type legal documents, keep track of their calendars, write some correspondence for the lawyers. The co-workers were friendly – more... and helped in time of need. The worst part of the job was when I was given assignments at the last minute with not enough time to complete them by deadline. – less

Not a good place to work.

Pros: good benefits and good salary

Internal politics made it very hard to do your job productively. Was ordered to trespass on a customers property & check if grain was in bins. Very unhappy being asked to something illegal & unethical

Great position, great people, but only temporary
Laboratory Technician (Current Employee), Minnetonka, MNAugust 13, 2014
Pros: great people, flexible schedule, corporate r&d exposure, networking, microbiology experience, lab management experience
Cons: contract only, no advancement opportunity, not privy to a great deal of project information, not particularly challenging or exciting
I have loved my time at Cargill so far; the people I work with are motivated, friendly and fun. The hours and schedule are very flexible, and I feel like part of the team. There are drawbacks to being a contractor, though; I cannot attend any company functions, I'm not allowed to know the details of the projects I help with, and there is no opportunity – more... for advancement. Additionally, there is plenty of work to be done, which is great; but none of it is particularly challenging or goal-oriented. Despite great networking and corporate research and development experience, I'm not really learning anything new here. – less

Unorganized
Chemist (Current Employee), Dalton, GAAugust 11, 2014
No member of management on the premises at night. Some members of management are verbally abusive to employees and do not see anything wrong with that. Extremely small skeleton crew on nights and large crew on days yet both shifts are expected to do the same amount of work as each shift.

Good, challenging yet employee-friendly place to work
Business Development Manager (Former Employee), CaracasJuly 25, 2014
Pros: access to training, in my case a year-long marketing "academy", with parts of it taking place in the company's hq in mn
Cons: cargill is a huge company, and with that comes (naturally) some bureaucratic inertia that can be a hard to deal with at times
I worked for Cargill in Venezuela, which means the outside environment (social, political, economical) in which we operated was relatively hostile. Even so, the company was able to pose challenging work (and train you for it), while also providing a great work environment: safe and cordial.
