Hillshire Farm Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Hillshire Farm is a brand of meat products marketed and owned by Hillshire Brands. The company was founded in 1934, and was purchased by Sara Lee Corporation in 1971. Friedrich (Fritz) Bernegger, (February 2, 1904 – April 30, 1988) born in Austria, started the business at the facility in New London, Wisconsin.
Hillshire Farm's primary products are smoked sausage and Polska kielbasa. The brand introduced smoked sausages to much of the general population of the U.S. as a supermarket food and a nationally advertised food. Hillshire Farm sausages are about two feet long and horseshoe-shaped.
Russ Fahringer wrote a review in amazon saying "This was the worst experience I have had with food products. The summer sausage was more like potted meat and lard tasting and the nut pkg had very stale nuts." while AshleyMac said "Oh man, texture was way off. I bit into something that was definitely not supposed to be in a link. Went straight into compost, such a waste"
"Bad bad taste- lousy sausage and the cheese was so small- wasted wrapping--somebody should be fired" radocarsnowplow79 wrote.

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"

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."

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."

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."

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."
