Shipping and Recieving
Warehouse Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXMay 20, 2016
Pros: Small crew, sense of brotherhood
Cons: Often overstocked the warehouse, When slow we would not hit our 40 hrs which made it hard for family to adjust with pay fluxation.
Worked at a meat warehouse we would receive at least 7 trucks a day, and I worked in the freezer, it was 5 degrees in there, so you have to constantly move to stay warm and if it was dead I'd clean, rotate products, combine pallets, and make room for inventory coming in that week. I loved it so much, I was very prideful of how clean the freezer stayed everyday before I left. I did daily inventory along with once a month full warehouse Saturday inventory, which was not a big deal cause I made it simple on everyone by always being organized.

Quality Technician (Current Employee), Tolleson, AZMay 18, 2016
The job is too easy, people disregard quality standards. Really long hours, often not a set schedule set, all varies with manufacturing needs of the day.

Company is a joke!!!!
Laborer (Former Employee), Mayfield, KYMay 8, 2016
Pros: Seniority, co-workers
Cons: insurance, to many want-to-be's
NO communication between ANYONE!!! Those who work will do ALL of it because if you don't want too, then you don't have too and nothing is done. Supervisors run around and don't have a clue. Upper management DOESN'T have a clue what goes on in that plant. Money was okay. They play their favorites. Co-workers were great!!! Hardest part of the job....getting up and going, knowing what the day was going to be like. A horrible place to work compared too what it use to be!!!!

Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee), Ottumwa, IAMarch 22, 2016
Pros: Upgrade in equipment
Cons: no Union specific to the Maintenance Department
I have only worked for JBS since November of 2015. So far a lot of changes are still in play. For the most part things have not changed as far as the actual work that I do. Still too early to tell the true differences between the two companies.November 2015 JBS officially bought Cargill Meat Solutions Pork plant in Ottumwa, Iowa.

Hard place to work for, the company morale is terrible.
Quality Assurance utility technician (Current Employee), Ottumwa, IAFebruary 13, 2016
Try to get through everyday at a company where upper management can't make a decision on how to deal with product or issues. A company that has no regard for employees well being. Communication is the worst I've ever dealt with in any company I've worked for. If people and corners can be cut to make an extra dollar then they will take it. The only thing enjoyable is the paycheck.

Manager (Current Employee), Lins, SPJanuary 31, 2016
One of the most rewarding benefits on working in JBS is its familiar and humble environment.
JBS has grown at a fast pace because the founders are down to earth oriented and constructed a positive atmosphere among all employees

JBS was a strong company but is setting its self up for failure
Production Supervisor (Former Employee), Santa Fe Springs, CAJanuary 19, 2016
Pros: Paid salary
Cons: Too many hours at work, no family time
Work at JBS is usually pretty routine,train your production workers right and the days fly by.Learned alot about beef and pork fabrication and yields.In the start of my career Management was very STRONG and was set out to be the best.In my last 2 months saw Management become weak.No HR support for Supervisors.About 80 percent of the production workers were great to work with and train,they made my job worth it when times werent soo routine.The hardest part of the job was dealing with the different personalities while having NO HR support.The best job was knowing Yields ,production numbers and safety were all achieved at the end of each shift

Refrigeration Technician (Former Employee), Elberton, GANovember 30, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company.
