when i was there they were nice until we had to start work then they were sticking fat between the belt of rotating around to you to put the meat on the trays they meat was left out while we went for break which is not good meat starts to go bad while it is sitting out on the conveyor when you just start there they should give you a chance to adjust to the meat section to be put onto trays instead they jump to another kind of sliced meat which can get someone confused when they are not used to it. They need to slow down do one kind of meat for at least 1 hr. to get people used to motivation of the meat on the trays I rated the company this they need to understand that it is not fun watching meat sitting out , I am a cook seeing meat left out for a while makes me rethink on buying meat from this company I am sorry but the truth is the truth
Pros
breaks were fine
Cons
meat left out not good

If you are willing to put in the effort to make a difference you will succeed.
Be able to work at a high pace and friendly and you could get into management quickly.

Learn new skills on day to day basis, good employee morale,Constant moving around doing various tasks, I believe management fair and hours are flexible.

Descent place to work but probably the worst place to deal with benefits, HR, getting anything done for health and safety. They have the worst processes for everything for example a simple prescription safety glasses request. I was given the run-around for a month and it eventually lead to me giving up because of so many inconvenient BS they want you to do. They have nobody to take control of the situation and just deal with it they require you to everything yourself they have 3rd party channels you have to get a hold of that nobody knows what to do you have to wait a week for a call back to tell you to call other people. Descent place to work if your okay with blood but if you're expecting any good brains up there sitting in the offices lower your expectations because they have the worst people and processes in place that I've ever experienced in a big company.

I worked in the animal nutrition business for Purina/Cargill in Woodstock Ont. I was a very challenging business but I was promoted up the ladder dealing with more people and larger responsibilities. I retired at 61 and am looking for part-time work to keep active & busy

Unrealistic expectations for all employees. Line moves at over 330 heads an hour. Get trouble for falling behind and pile ups. Once you become a target they use any means available to terminate your employment. Not a good place to work.

Location team was engaged and a pleasure to work with. Managment can be at times diffucult. Policies are in place to address bullying and harrassing behavior in the workplace, however very ironic that this behavior comes from managment itself. Employees that move on or quit don't quit the job role, they quit there managers.

Cargill have the most competitive company that I ever worked for. Their equipment gear is a must and safety is number 1 to them and to the workers. They managed their people properly and they provide a good insurance for each and everyone.

Work isnt hard, management micro manage you and dont want to work with you so there out to get you. People there act like your friend but they aren't they back stab you, very dirty environment there especially with the woman there. Union wont fight your battles they will sweep it under the rug and let you get fired.
Pros
Fair pay and benefits, and okay schedule
Cons
Horrible managment, bullying, toxic environment, woman are the worst there with dirty talk and bullying.
