Have worked at vantage since opening. They don't treat workers like MDI, MDi makes good money and gets there rasies Vantage foods said that employees get raise at 6 months and now not happening!!! They wating till June and maybe u get a rasie if you make it till then and maybenot. I do not recommend anyone going there you start out at 8 hr and after 60 days u are supposed to get a raise and now they are not giving them the raises after that. If you want to work like that go ahead. Also for the most part you have no family life. You cant miss a day or you get wrote up. The temp is 35. 1200 bring home is if you work all 6 days and 10-12hr a day.

That's the only type of jobs that come to Caldwell County. Try working in Burke County. Yes, they sometimes have overtime, but for the most part they do as they promise and they pay much better.

Best you can expect from a company that hires anHR Manager that misrepresents themselves then hire hires buddies from previous employer that were all fired.

Thank our County Commissioners for their progress by bringing another break even wage labor camp to our county.

I heard lots of messed up crap that comes out of the NC planet. I been a vantage food employee 6 years to long at the Chilliwack Location. Way back when the company was named Canada West Foods.

Chilliwack BC planet starts out at 12.00 hr rate Top rate is 15.43.( wow 3 and a half bucks a hour difference ). which i found messed up. theres a guys there that been there for 10 years and make 3.50 more then a guy that just gets hired.

so vantage in NC is getting mexicans which i find funny. canadian government is sponsoring 20 people from the Philippines. since no one wants to work for vantage. Winnipeg planet has 85% of there workers are from the Philippines.

last note. Vantage foods should change there name again to immigrant foods. 2 years ago president gary haley said he wanted 10 planets in 10 years. were they going to get these workers, when they cant fill a full crew at there 3 present planets.

Maybe you should go back to school and learn how to spell. Most of the new Canadians employed at Vantage plants use much better English than you do. They could also run the company better than present management but the severe discrimination displayed by management overrules.

Vantage Food is a meat packing company (It is a Canadian Company) I was a former employee there, the work environent is 6AM-6:30PM you get 2-3 15 minutes break and 30 minutes lunch. The work environment is COLD (<40F).
As a former employee of vantage, the management SUCKS, they treat you like a slave and the working days sucks, they are bunch of LIERS so if you have a respect for yourself don't let them mistreat you. You CAN NOT be late to work you are only supposed to get 10 points for being late, and if you reached 10 points they terminate you immediately, they have no respect. I am a well educated person (PhD) and thought they are a good company to start a career with but I was wrong and I am glad I got out of there. They hire Hispanics because they can pay them way less $ as they do to Americans or legal immigrants. If I were you look for another company and I recommend DO NOT work for this company, they are bunch of liers and unprofessional managements....I repeat myself one more time, if you have a respect for yourself DO NOT work for this company, they have no respect for their employees as long as they get meat out to Lowes Foods and they treat you like a slave. I am glad I am out of that place because I respect my class, high work ethic and high education. Don't let them talk you into their lies.
You must not have gotten that Phd in spelling or grammar. Oh and a Phd from West Lenoir Bible Institute does not qualify.

Maybe they offered a Dr. of meat packing online at the university college of West Virginia university college online. I hear they also offer it in Georgia at Sheet Rock University along with a PhD in hairdressing, refrigeration and plumbing repair. LOL

Well I searched online and I saw apparently NC-State in Raleigh offers PhD in Meat, animal, poultry, nutrition. Maybe he meant that his phd is in one of those.
