Long work days with little to no home life/ stressful work environment
Shipping Supervisor (Current Employee), Greeley, COAugust 25, 2014
Pros: discounts on meat packaged at facility
Cons: shipping works most days of the year including holidays
We are required to work long hours, and usually 6-7 days a week. Very stressful, high demand job. In charge of keeping product out the door, while making sure production floors continue to run efficiently. I enjoy the people I work with in my department, and consider them family due to the amount of time we spend together. The hardest part about my – more... job is being away from my family and missing all of the special moments with my wife and son. The most enjoyable part of my job is the experience and people I work with. – less

productive but no help from upper management.
Warehouse Supervisor/ Logistics Manager (Former Employee), Santa Fe Springs, CAJuly 12, 2014
Pros: good pay, benefits.
Cons: no help from upper management
Was find at first but later made changes when new management came in. HR Department was a joke. No motivation from upper management. Had good workers but tried to get them a raise. A lot of turnaround in my department. Ask for help, did not yet. Upper management was more concern on production and numbers then the department. Had alot of good hard working – more... workers..I decided to resing or quit.. – less

You are a number and most folks in the trenches numbly trod thru their day.
Logistics (Current Employee), Greeley CO CorporateMay 16, 2014
Pros: good cafe on premises.
Cons: corporate back-stabbing is at a premium & a culture of fear & anxiety permeates the building.
Lotsa promises, little follow-through.

Only a select few care enough to make it their mission to better the company...with repercussions (back-stabbing, headaches, etc..)
The rest are marionettes parroting rhetoric and dumb slogans to each other until they get to leave the office for the day.

This isn't to say that the company is without its potential. – more... Its just sad to see so much of it wasted everyday. – less

Jbs not all departments are people friendly.
Butcher (Current Employee), Melbourne, VICMay 2, 2014
Pros: full time base work.
Cons: not people friendly in all departments.
A normal day is very unexciting.
You learn to defend yourself.
Not all management is very nice.
The co workers do help to make your day a little more pleasant.
The best part of my day is knowing the fact I give 100%.

fantastic boss, good tutor
Electrician (Former Employee), londonApril 3, 2014
Pros: travel
Cons: hard working boss but made me who i am
My typical working day is working with builders and other triads to get the job done and in the best way

My electrical background is industrial so = hospitals, schools, data management buildings and subcontracting for civil engineering projects in England.
Over the years i have picked up a lot of experience with different types of systems and work – more... places.

I work with a good team of guys which i also call my friends, we are the type of workers that see a problem as a challenge

The hardest part of the job is day to day events that are unforeseen

The most enjoyable is dealing with theses events and more so completing the job to see the end result and smiles on the clients faces – less

meat trimmer (Former Employee), Dinmore, QLDNovember 24, 2013
Pros: canteen had a card you could put tabs on and buy cigarettes there

Every day at work was awesome
everyone was really nice there had a joke and laughed around, although the hours were a bit late for me and sleeping was a problem witch was the only downside to working there , i liked that they had there own canteen that was the best part, you can even buy cigarettes there, although i'm a non smoker!!
