LOL! I know that much. I heard that 2nd shift only has to clean up from 1st shift. Was just wondering why they are always hiring.

i know that after you work there you don't eat as much sausage as you may have before. I worked in the freezer room for a week until a pig got away from the kill zone and they ran it back to the pack. Well i thought to myself that that pig derserved to be let go. But it made it to a plastic roll. And it's guts got hauled off to some where?. I thought about jumping on it and riding it that day lol. If you can work there you can work anywhere. You hear the pigs scremming when they kill them. Awful sound. You will hear that sound for a very long time after you hear it a few times. OLd Man Purnel is a money hungrey grinch. You find out it's gooood!

The pay is horrible and so are the people there. They treat their workers like shit and slaves. Dont take the job if i were you and if you do your either gonna get fired or quit.

Everybody works for somebody..for something.. and it's kinda hard to tell somebody not to take a job, unless you don't mind to be payin their bills and puttin food on their table. Sometimes silence is the best answer.

I some what agree but to be happy in life you must find what you can do and enjoy it somewhat. I have worked their and it sucks. But that is my opinion. But this is topix and when someone ask for opinions you shall receive them here. I myself can kill a hog 1 time a year but doing it every day will get to anybody. Place reminds me of the Texas chainsaw movie.

It stinks something horrible and if you can handle it there u can handle anywhere. The pay is awful for the work you do. If you decided to work there GOOD LUCK!

My boyfriend works their now, and it's horrible! He is surrounded by whores all day, one of whom he had an affair with. This chick named Kara, was too skinny and WAYYYYYYY ugly in the face. But like he said, it was so easy i had to. They kill pigs on first shift, and second shift finishes what first shift didn't. Job stinks, and is cold. If that's what you're looking for, good luck!

They do not kill the pigs on 2nd shift. Theywork in the departments that have enough work for the second shift crew to do... the turkey room, they package the sausage in the boxes you buy in stores and for resturants, they assemble/package the microwave sausage biscuts, nothing really hard. They also have a cleaning crew.

I work there on 2nd. It's easy work. Pay starts at 9.50 hour. If u want a patty peeling position u move up to 10.50 an hour. If u pass your 90 day probation u get 10.75 and insurance. After that it's .25 cent raise per year
