Tyson Foods Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Tyson Foods, Inc. is an American multinational corporation based in Springdale, Arkansas, that operates in the food industry. The company is the world's second largest processor and marketer of chicken, beef, and pork after JBS S.A. and annually exports the largest percentage of beef out of the United States. Together with its subsidiaries, it operates major food brands, including Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farm, Ball Park, Wright Brand, Aidells, and State Fair. Tyson Foods ranked No. 80 in the 2018 Fortune 500 list of the largest United States corporations by total revenue.
Tyson Foods has been embroiled in a number of controversies related to environmental damage, price manipulation, animal abuse and undisclosed usage of antibiotics. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Tyson Foods facilities helped to spread the coronavirus. Tyson Foods did not implement recommended best practices to protect its workforce, including social distancing measures, plexiglass barriers and wearing of face masks; by June 2020, more than 25 Tyson workers had died of COVID-19.
One employee shared this on a forum, "You’ll work with crappy people most of the time. Upper management doesn’t seem to care about second shift. Second shift regularly works 10-12 hours nearly everyday, while first shift never has to work more than 8(exhausting) breaks are ultra short. If overtime isn’t your thing, I suggest not working here."
Current Employee - Production Supervisor says"Always mandatory overtime, No home life, pay sucks upper management are backstabbers and bullies to always threatens to fire somebody over the least little thing.I know for a fact there trying to intentionally tee me off to try and get me to say something to get me fired.Its hell at tyson foods in Harmony NC my advice is to please NEVER work here.Ive been working 6 days a week for a year and no one cares in upper management to give me a day or 2 off."
Former Employee - Production says"Low pay not enough pay work hard not enough"
Current Employee - Production Supervisor says"Work 6 days a week. Period."
Former Employee - Accounting Clerk says"watch your back, stay to yourself, do your job, harassment,"
Current Employee - Senior Technical Analyst says"Company's culture changes with every CEO change which is often. Donnie Smith's days were the Golden year at Tyson's and are long gone. Current CTO depends on outsourcing to get the job done. The company does not think they can promote within as internal employee's are not competent enough."
Current Employee - Meat Packer says"I've had a pretty horrible experience working here so far due to a group of employees harassing me and another co-worker. Since I started working here this group has been very unwelcoming. They have cursed at people, tampered with work equipment, among other things. All HR has done is take statements. I was pushed intentionally by one of these people and HR was not helpful at all. I had to call the police. I show up to work the next day and this employee is still there! Working not more than a yard away from me. Their code of conduct is a joke. If you haven't been here for half a decade or more, you can forget about being treated like a human. And they wonder why they can't keep new employees. I would avoid this company at all costs!"
Current Employee - Senior Business Systems Analyst says"Constant change kills continuity, culture is getting toxic"
Current Employee - General Laborer says"Managers have no regard for safety here. When team members mention safety, they restrict teaM member to line work. Everything changes when they know corporate is coming. Lines will slow down, managers start smiling. They put on a big show for corporate when they come in. Managers have a team. They don’t hire supervisors from within. The order for hiring for a supervisor is opps associate first, then consider supervisors from other plants, then they will hire a team member from this plant if no one gets it. Being outspoken and telling management how you feel about how they run the plant will get you wrote up. It’s their technique to keep you quite. Runs from HR to production. Seriously, don’t see this plant making it very much longer if things don’t change. 20 years at the most."
Current Employee - Labeling says"Definitely no work life balance. My department works 6-7 days a week 11 hour shifts. If you or your child get sick dont worry bring back an excuse unless itsl states you to be out 5 days or more. I dont understand the point of having a Dr. excuse if they dont acknowledge it. Your penalized 1 point for everyday that you are out even with an excuse. Unless its 5 days or more."
Former Employee - Refrigeration Technician says"Most everything about the way it’s run"
Production Worker (Former Employee) says"Absolutely horrible place to work. If I could give it less than one star I would. So thankful I left that place. The management was horrible. Nothing positive about working here. There are no pros of working for this companyManagement, work environment"
Production Associate (Former Employee) says"● Work-life balanceSpeed● Pay & benefitsNothing● OverallI didn’t like the hours and I had kids to look after so I couldn’t work there because of the manager they were very picky and rude to some employees I had to find something better"
Production Worker (Former Employee) says"They allow individuals with extreme temperatures to come into work. Managers consistently ignore their symptoms, as well as workers, putting you in danger of possible infection. I would’ve stayed had they been handling COVID correctly, however there are people who aren’t even required to have the mask on or above their nose. They’ll make you work after you’ve just been tested regardless if you have it or not, until tested positive. They’ll weasel out of paying you quarantine pay as well.Decent pay, decent hours, decent employeesShady management, terrible pandemic treatment, a dead end job"
Sanitation Worker (Former Employee) says"Management didn't care we stayed under staffed, without proper PPE and was let go because I brought it to Management....................................nonThey dont care about 3rd shift workers"
Jack Driver (Current Employee) says"I have been in several departments. I finally made it to shipping. I moved there just for the set hours. No more staying til 3 or 6 in the mornings. They need a 3rd Shift!I would only recomend this as a temporary job to anyone. When no one else will hire you Tyson's will. But just know they going to work you to death and barley pay you.I can travel 30 minutes to another plant and make $3 more an hour. This plant here don't care about the employees at all. And management is out to get you. If your black you got no worries at all. You can get away with murder in this plant. If not you wont be here long."
Palletizer (Former Employee) says"negative false promises false hopes would never go back glad thats all in the past employees treated poorly no air conditioning not comfortable breaks or lunches SWEAT SHOP.Co workersmanagement"

Maintenence Technician (Former Employee) says"The maintenance dept is a joke. The company has poor benefits and they retaliate against people who are injured on the job. If they don't want you, or want to git rid of you they write you up for minor offenses until they feel they can terminate you for poor performance. They also do not feel obligated to provide protection against coronavirus."
Rotisserie Associate (Former Employee) says"Hate this job ok bye bad job not good do apply there chicken plant not for everyone ok don’t do it very bad people that work there never go please ok hate it"
Quality Assurance Technician (Current Employee) says"You go to work and you don’t know if you are working 8 hours or 3 but it must be 4 paid. The same will happen the next day and the next day. You would say “ it’s Friday, we have to weekend “ guess what. You are working Saturday. You probably work from Monday to Friday only 25 or so hours but you have to work Saturday for at least 4. If you can this Tyson is an unpredictable place to work."
hourly supervisor (Former Employee) says"tysons really sucks they work you to death for pennies supervisors and above are kiss butts you get hurt they will either hurt you more or get rid of you workers comp sucks thy are for the company not the worker company lies on commercials they say they don't put antibiotics in their chickens . they do in the feed they have to too keep disese down they also use steroides why do you think they grow so fast and big ? so yes all poltry plants are greedy and liers .If you think they are not ,then you are just another sheep . so yes tysons sucks i wouldn't wish my worst enemy to work there."

Manager (Former Employee) says"Company will lie to you. Treat you like garbage. Don’t care about your personal safety until someone gets hurt. Then it’s how can we blame someone else for it happening. If you want to work ) days a week and almost get 40 hrs for the week.There isn’t anyYou’ll work 6 months and they will fire you or you’ll quit due to being treated like garbage"
Production Worker, Label Room, & Stock Room (Former Employee) says"Not a great place to work if you have a family. Leave no room to gain knowledge of product are to become familiar with job. Would not recommend to anyone."
Tyson Foods (Former Employee) says"Drugs, harassment from management, pay discrimination, racial discrimination. I wouldn’t recommend unless you have a family member working there in a management position"
Labeler (Former Employee) says"I dont like I was treated if I had to report a incident they treated it as if never happen swept it under rug not a good place to work and they are very it seems how should I put have picks and favorite among workers"
Farms worker (Current Employee) says"This company is merely driven by greed and scare tactics against their employees. Truth be told about them, it amazes me they aren’t sued weekly with the blatant disregard for OSHA rules. From the shorten breaks because you need to move from station to the breaks, to the total incapacity to care about worker safety. The money isn’t worth the break down of ones body."
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) says"Very pour managers, no work live bal forced to work 7 days a week. Change your work schedule mid week. work all kind of hours from days to nights. Work and people are not very nice."
Former member (Former Employee) says"Stay away from this place if you know what’s good for you. Very cold, low pay, terrible work environment. Company only cares about their own interests period"
