      I have been working at Foster Farms full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      A great way to learn about management and how to deal with adversity if you are a beginner or entry level supervisor/manager

      Cons

      Long hours. Terrible upper management. Lie about 5 day work weeks (6 days is the actual norm) unorganized schedules. Lack of accountability.

      Fix the scheduling issues and fix the temporary fixes with important production equipment and you’ll fix the business.
