My overall experience with Smithfield Foods has been one of variations. I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to this business. My initial reaction was on the average side because my schedule was predictable and my job wasn't very demanding. After a few years, both my schedule and job became more demanding, but that came in the form of a promotion so there was a pay increase as well. All in all, my experience with Smithfield Food has been rewarding one. I have learned a number of things, both personally and professionally, and the relationships that I have fostered with my co-workers has been priceless.

The job is okay, but you need the management to treat the employee like employees instead of trying to fired them.
I have enjoyed working here. I like all of my coworkers and my boss. I have had advancement opportunities come my way as well. I work good hours only 15 minutes from my home. There are plenty of employee gatherings to get to know one another and have fun. Overall a good experience.
