Productive and fun workplace
general laborer (Former Employee), Rockhampton, QLDJune 3, 2015
Pros: Dealing with livestock, machenary and communcating with a diverse communty from all walks of life.
Cons: Delays
Work begins at 4:30am and from the start its full on with Pre-Operational checks and on the go quick response, its dangerous, its hard work, the quicker you do your part the sooner you finish, always expect complicated situations but mostly handled in a swift and professional manner that comply with company policy and procedures, work usually finishes around 2:00pm-6:30pm depending on are variety of obstacles such as livestock movement, chain movement and delays such like performance, maintenance and emergencies.
I learned that the quicker you are and the more parts you play in the process equals management satisfaction and early knock-offs.
Everybody has a part to play in the process, and depending on your location in the chain, limits your overall workload and performance but in saying that its all very hard work and every co-worker in the process does exactly what they need to do to archive the numbered heads of livestock and statistics.
The hardest part of the job would be training new personnel in the skill of a process worker or stockman.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere working as a team in a variety of situations, the sunrises and sometimes the sunsets and the location of the site had incredible views over looking the paddocks and the river. I encourage anybody to have a go and take it all in.

Hide Trimmer, and Flesher (Former Employee), Greeley COMay 29, 2015
Pay is very good. The work can be very demanding, and very dirty at times. I had an overall good experience at JBS, but my supervisor was inadequate for the department I worked in.

meat distributtion warehouse
Stylist (Current Employee), Santa Fe Springs, CAApril 14, 2015
Pros: a job to pay the rent
Cons: cold enviroment and standing all day
JBS is a meat distribution company. I package meat daily, hour vary from 6 1/2 to 8, I work 2:30 until we are finishing filling the orders for the day . our management is not very well trained and learn as they go along, some of the older employees know more of the daily operations then the leads on our shift. the hardest part of my job is dealing with the cold. I cant honestly say I have an enjoyable part of my job.

Production Supervisor (Former Employee), Greeley, COMarch 20, 2015
Pros: managers were the best
Cons: hr director tough to work with.
Here we supervisors worked a 10 hr day and also learned that the HR director was not big fan of supervisors? the rest of the management team pretty good. To deal wit HR director was tough it was always his way ...that is a for sure wrong...The best thing about JBS is that it was by the mountains..

production worker (Former Employee), Marshalltown IAFebruary 26, 2015
Pros: 25 dollar cupon for chrismas
Cons: health care is bad at jbs
A typical day at work in the jbs pork plant is not as good as the past jobs i have had before.First of all there is no communication for the behalf of the supervisors they do not agree on what should be done first and what should go last on the product. Supervisors do not have Respect for employees(they scream at them,they don't give them time to go to the restrooms).The union at jbs does not help people they just keep saying come back later and they do not do nothing for employees.when you ask for days off they don't give you none even if your a responsible person.The working lines are to fast, they make people over work,the nurses working on jbs they only give you ice and ibuprofen and they tell you to go back to work even if your to hurt to work.

fun driving forklift
forklift (Former Employee), Catcus, TxFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: overtime
Cons: did away with the ovetime
It was something trying not to hit anyone because there are people walking around in all directions and you would need to watch out for the new hires because they had a habit of not paying attention to area. It was really stressful and cold, I lasted as long as I could working in the cold all the time

Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee), Greeley, COJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: cafeteria on site, breaks were welcomed
Cons: almost to big for themselves
I liked working for JBS, but was told I would be sales and then denied over a year after being told that.

I moved on to a smaller company, but realized the bigger companies treat their employees with much more respect.

Kill Floor Clerk (Current Employee), Souderton, PAJanuary 2, 2015
Pros: pays good
productive
You learn a lot if you put your head to it. for example i went from a floor employee to helping in health care to doing data entry for the operation manager to a clerk. Now i do multiple jobs around the company when asked.
Management is excellent so are my co-workers
the hardest part of my job is none, i am observant when learning a job.
the most enjoyable part of my job is building graphs and having Safety and Communication meeting.
