    I worked at Foster Farms full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Dedicated Employees Good Benefits Ability to move within the company, role dependent

    Cons

    Company does not adhere to their own Core Values. There is no work/life balance, though this varies between depts. No funding for training or education. Eliminated their internal HR training group. If you want to enhance your skills it must be done on your own time at at your own expense. No appreciation for their employees and the personal sacrifices they make to keep the business running. Continually cuts... budgets for employees. No longer does employee events like company picnics, holiday luncheons, etc. Meetings routinely scheduled during lunch periods, but lunch never provided. Management is in chaos. Operations driven company that does not embrace Marketing or Product Innovation. Lacks understanding of process control or lean. No formal training for plant workers. Employee safety is not a priority, especially if it adds cost.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink how you manage your business and how you treat your employees. You may retain local employees who have no other options, but you won't retain any strong talent recruited from outside of the valley.

    I have been working at Foster Farms full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    No pressure, safe work environment, and room for advancement. Good equipment to drive and getting better. You get paid by the hour and are given plenty of time to be on time. Good benefits.

    Cons

    A little behind the times. Some growing pains, HR is very slow during the hiring process. Benefits aren't cheap. It gets old listening to senior drivers complain of how great it used to be...in the 1970's! Not much of a regular schedule when you first start.

    Advice to Management

    Get with times, just because it worked 30 years ago doesn't mean it works today. Communication is key!

    Pros

    Easy job security. Good benefits

    Cons

    Long hours. Overtime pay is bad.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know. Give a bit of respect and salary raise to your employees. 25 cents a year. Sometimes we've only gotten 10 cents a year but millions being poured into a football stadium with Foster's name on it
