One of the better food companies to work for .....

Production Supervisor (Current Employee)
Wichita, KS (US)

I have been working at Hormel full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBetter pay than Seaboard, Smith-field, Farmland, Swift (JBS), or Tyson.
Much less stress than average packing house jobs ...

ConsUnless you have a frat brother, uncle, or god-parent as a VP, or are a minority, you will find promotions VERY slow ...and unless you really understand being on your feet 8 to 10 hours a day working in cold cold environments six to seven days a week ..you might be in for a shock ..

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the patronage out of the internal job bid system, and make it a level playing field, stop hiding choice jobs for favorite employees.
Quit trying to bring in young college kids who are completely over whelmed by working 10 plus hours days 6 and 7 days a week, and poach more employees from other companies.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
