Lots of overtime if you want

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Cold on the production floor, must be able to handle it. Its noisy. Very repetitive work, small lunch rooms and bathrooms. Needs updating. Microwaves are abused and never work.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Long hours
Was this review helpful?

It's a paycheck.

Management could not care less about their drivers. Our loyalty bonus was cut in half (this was given out in early December) then given out in January so couldn't be used for Christmas. Instead they gave us a pay raise. Except at the end of it all still made the same money, but half a bonus. No communication between supervisors, and drivers. You can write faulty equipment all week long. Don't expect it to get fixed. Delays on farm is standard. The first hour is yours with no pay. Only pay delay after that. Concern is only for product to arrive at plant. Driver safety in bad weather conditions is of no concern.You will make on average $75000 a year. You drive all night. Sunday to Thursday. So getting home sometime Friday. Saturday only actuall day off.

Pros

Steady paycheck, decent dental.

Cons

Saturday only day off, No communication between managers and drivers

Terrible for families

Don't pay enough for the job you do. You are not appreciated from upper management you go do the job and go home forman appreciates you but that is it and he doesn't like the job either so ya it sucks heavy birds all the time 24 pounds a hand.

Cons

Really long hours, Payed travel time between jobs but not payed from your house or after work, back to your house so 2 to 3 hours you dont get paid for everyday.

Fun and enjoyable

I enjoyed packaging the chicken in the trays so fastLabeling them and putting the stickers it was really enjoyableThe early morning shift was good well organized with good lead hands who are nice to their employees. Incase of a problem it's easy to approach them and solve it so quickly without getting to the management

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

They don't pay for the 1/2 hour break

Not a happy place!

Spent a long time at sunrise. It was nice to work with a lot of different cultures and meet a lot of great people (employees). The full benefits are nice... but while there is some room for advancement the management is very poor and if they don't like you, you will know it. Lots of harassment happens here - and if it's done by a supervisor they won't deal with it or they sweep it under the rug). They try to get by without paying people when they get them to do a job that is above production. (In some cases but not all). They will take advantage of people if they have a "skill set". Normally you'd work an 8 hour shift but most of them your looking at +2 hrs of overtime every day, work alot of Saturdays and while that's great for money you have no time for family. It really drains you. You can see when people leave from working 6 days a week continuously they are sad, tired, but don't leave out of fear and loss of money).Employees don't receive proper training when they are new and because of that they are faced with a lot of stress and get yelled at cause they "can't do it" then either get fired or leave. Supervisors are under paid (compared to similar jobs in the area) and put under a lot of pressure even if it's morally wrong and infringes on workers rights. I do not recommend working here because of the management. The are deceitful, lie and do what ever they can to make a buck even if it's treating you bad. The only good side is benefits, the paycheck and getting to know some really great people that become like family.

Pros

Benefits, culture diversity

Cons

Ridiculous hours, poor management, staff taken advantage of, harassment

Don't bother applying

Don't bother applying unless you're single and very hungry otherwise you will never see your family. Tons of overtime and you have to do it and be sure to sign up to work Saturdays if you're a driver or they won't like you.

Pros

No Pros

Cons

Long hours and very unorganized In shipping, Plan your own run. New employyes are not accepted, Liked.

Great people makes it worth it

If you can tough out production, there is room for advancement and better positions. If you go in with a bad attitude you will have an even worse experience. Get to know the people and it will make it all worth it!

Current employee

Not a goodplace to work for. Not organized at all and lots of favouritism being played. Workers are not treated fairly . Takes almost 6 years to get the benefits packages and had to write a request about anything and everything, and don’t be so sure if it will be approved.

Pros

No pros at all

Cons

Too less space to mention

Tough

Graveyard shift can take a toll on your health, especially working those type of hours in production. It is tough since its straight labor and some parts of the job can feel brutal, other parts not so much.

Pros

Good pay, 40 hours a week with option of overtime.

Cons

Terrible work hours and can;t balance life activities properly, coworkers can be either nice or plain rude.

Awful. Awful. Awful.

Terrible employer. Low pay rate, awful working conditions, management are nasty, and scapegoat everyone if they can. You're in a wet, refrigerated environment all day long and breaks seem to take forever to come. And you're there until the work is done, whether that's 8 hours or 18.

Pros

free coffee

Cons

long hours, low pay, no opportunities.

Toxic Culture

no recognition, management has little to no engagement with non executive employees, toxic culture, repremanded for unknown policies & procedures. Unwritten rule, to be on call 24/7. Management is arrogant, aggressive & lack people skills. A very transactional company, that is driven solely by profit. Not customer eccentric nor invest in their people. Very secretive environment, tenured staff are very protective of their jobs & witch hunt to expose errors of newer staff, instead of coaching. Very unsupportive staff. Passionate for profit and job security, no passion for their staff. Benefits (what benefits?)Would not recommend.

Pros

Samples of test products

Cons

Everything else.

Not a good place to work at. Absolutely no training at all and don’t give people a chance when they are still on their 3 month probation. No Matt’s to stand on.

Pros

i enjoyed team work

A typical day at sunrise is that normal routine practices ,safety precaution observed when handling products.i have learned major skills like folk lift driving,operating the scale,how to drive power jacks and how to scan and correct label of products.our work place culture is every employee as a specific duties assign each day to do and its very important to ensure smooth flow target work schedule per day.the hardest part of the job is when their is rotation of work station and one is required to learn fast to adapt and operate machines on that specific position.the most enjoyable part is awarding of rewards after job well done and increase of salary its really a moral booster and makes everyone happy.
