I work in the Amarillo Tyson Plant, and my experience is very pleasant. I work in the OHS dept. and everyday is always a good day especially working with nurses. Some days are hectic but all I care about is the Team Member's well-being. Inside the plant is very diversified and one of the main things that I look forward to everyday is the fact that we have cultures from different places, backgrounds, religion, and history. Tyson is a good place to work at. It may be rough on the floor but I respect everyone who does because there is no easy job in there. It's also a good place because no matter what it gives all people a chance. People who were coming from different countries and the people who were recently in prison who came home to start living a better life. My overall experience has been very pleasing.

Tyson is an average place to work. Good policies but poor opportunities to grow. I applied many times to different jobs, but never got them, even though I’m college student . Jobs that required more knowledge and skills. Other jobs they offer are very physically demanding.
They offer good benefits and I can’t complain about that. Also, they have good safety policies. Tyson offers to help people in-need, and encourages their team members (immigrants) to become USA citizens.
During the nine years I have worked there, I met many nice people. Now I’m going to study fulltime so I can get a better job.
Being an Intern, in I.T. it’s a big step in. Tyson was my first job. However, it is a great environment. Everyone communicates and gets to the point. Managers doesn’t tip toe around issues that are happening. Tyson encourages different activities, such as, playing games, learning how to improve your eating habits, and exercising. There are various benefits to being a student and working at Tyson. They give an opportunity for Tyson students to apply for scholarships.
