Cargill is a very wel reputed multi national company. Cargill has good ethics towards employee safety. Safety is the top most priority rather than work. I do have duel reporting for Coordination between plant and corporate office, due to same having faced lot of hurdles to complete the given task. I do have good repo with cross functions which ease my work. Have spent total 7 years and 4 months visited lot of places to enhance the carrier. Co workers had always appricated me and gave respect to me. The hardest part of my carrier at Cargill is I had to give work topmost priority rather than family life, in last five years i had almost left my family alone due to frequest change in locations, and when i was at Paradip, had faced a lot difficulty to settle my family over there, but due to poor atmospheric condition and not get good support from management had left my family at my native. The most enjoyable part of the job as i do get respect and appriciation from cross functions rather than my boss. I do enjoy visiting lot of places for various meeting held by corporate office.

A regular day starts with latest updates. This job has made me technically sound and has taught me dealing with new persons. I have improved my behavior as team member, learned team building. Every task is urgent, which has helped me complete my job in given timeline even when facing problems as lack of resources, time etc. Women safety is very important for this organisation, so girls are never forced to stay late, if so in any urgency we have been given proper assistance to reach home safely. There are some negative aspects also as I have faced communication gap between teams, within team at times. But freedom to work in your own way is the best part of this company.

a typical work day- 10-12-14 hours . There are some months were you don't make 25 hours per week. All depends..
what you learned- voice record everything because the General Manager all the way to HR Lie. Upper management gangs up on you to get rid of you! If one manager does like you, they get all of the other managers to help make things up to force you out! Voice Record Everything!
management- is dirty, don't care about your safety, you are yelled at, threatened with your job if you witness anything bad. Don't come forward because its all over after that! Find another job and quit don't say why ! Just leave as quick as you can!
workplace culture- divided
the hardest part of the job- Management doesn't care about Cargill. If they did none of the non sense would be going on! Employee's are threatened, assaulted and treated poorly! To be honest I don't think corporate really cares. See below..
the most enjoyable part of the job- Never coming back!
When people tell you after your hired to make sure you voice record everyday that really does not make much sense at the time. You are taken back by this statement. Unfortunately, they were right!
I was told by another employee do yourself a favor and record everything said everyday you walk in that place! I found myself in a position were I had to listen! I'm glad I did!
Good supervisors, good employees have been forced out of their jobs in the last 26 months for caring and trying to do the righ

Occupational Health Nurse | Fresno, CA | 27 Jun 2013
Cargill nationally appears to be an excellent company-Fresno had problems
Arrived at 08:00AM. Evaluated injured employees, providing appropriate treatment within the company's standing protocols. If injury above acuity that could be treated onsite, referred to contracted primary care physician. The difference between "Recordable Days", and "Reportable Days". To be completely honest, the vast majority of the management team were very professional, fair, supportive, and approachable. Unfortunately my direct manager onsite was grossly lacking in management skills. There was a tremendous difference in the treatment of the 2 nurses working onsite that was evident to everyone, to the extent that comments were made to me directly-it was very embarrassing. I realize that we all start out at the novice level and advance to the expert level-we make mistakes in judgment. However, no matter how young and inexperienced a manager might be, his common sense reflects one's value system. In the Occupational Medicine Department, everyone was fearful of losing their jobs, resulting in staff splitting, and a total lack of teamwork. No comradity whatsoever. My salary was announced throughout the United States-when I informed my manager 3 days after I started work-he asked me "what do you want me to do, lower your salary?"-I guess he didn't know discussing an employee's salary with co-workers is illegal. The hardest part of the job was to show up, sit 2 feet away from my co-worker with no verbal communication between us for the entire shift-this was not my doing, I wou
Great oppotunities for new experiences, excellent co-workers.
Truthfully, no day is ever a typical day. We always start with a pre-shift start-up meeting in which we discuss the tasks for the day and assign people to said tasks. Most everybody is cross-trained in many various positions so you really never know what you'll be doing from one day to the next, which isn't a bad thing because it keeps things from becoming monotanous and complacent. There are always opportunities arising to be able to learn new jobs, skills, and knowledge in general.
During my time here I've learned a lot I never realized about the grain industry and agricultural supply chains from field to store. I've learned how to load a barge, operate numerous types of mobile equipment, drive a locomotive, become more interactive with customers and contractors, welding and use of a plasma cutter, and how to better make split decisions on the fly.
I have mixed emotions about management. Some of my supervisors have a very keen eye for detail and are very aware of how the plant operates and how to handle problems that come up. Others don't seem to really understand everything that is involved in keeping our plant running and are quick to pass judgement when "hiccups" occur. They are all good people, but I do question some of their reasoning behind some of their decisions. They are all very understanding when it comes to problems that need to be attended to in our personal lives and continually work with us to allow us to take care of those things even though we work 60+ hour
Prosvariety of jobs, opportunity to learn new things, minimal supervision, great co-workers
Consvarying shift schedule and hours, last minute notice to hour changes
The good: The assignments are great for the beginner accounting assistant, yet things can become challenging depending on what you learn in various software systems. The training is very detail oriented as long as you ask a lot of questions. You will work in a modern office; every work space is brand new and remodeled. Multiple monitors at each workstation make your job much easier. The cafeteria offers a lot of options with stations designed to create your own meal or you can find plenty of grab-n-go items. There are a lot of opportunities to be social at work including after-work happy hour, holiday charity events, lunches, team building events, etc. There is a walking path outside and an onsite parking ramp for you to park in. The building feels secure with guards and turnstiles at most entrances. The culture is very relaxed, almost too relaxed. The best part of the job is cross-departmental team/work relationships, working hand-in-hand to get things done. You meet new people that way and it makes your days very enjoyable to help others with tasks. Most of the time you can leave work early with pay before major holidays. The process team manager is very good at her job and handles employees very professionally (one of the best I have ever had) - very intelligent person - knows how to handle employees and work demands without freaking out or being nasty. The upper management rubs off as flaky and uninterested in the team, which leads into my not-so-good comments:
ConsLow morale, constant high turnover of entire office, managers ignore your existence
A typical day depends on what shift you are on. Day shift is responsible for the daily maintenance and the permits that are neccessary for the work. The lockouts must be verified and permits issued to the personell preforming the work. Safety is always first, a lot of companies say this but this is the first company ive seen practice what they preach. Once all of the maintenance is taken care of you have to see where each department is on starch and where each batch we have is on its reaction time. Each sub department must have starch ready for them to dry.
Second shift will usually come in once all of the days maintenance is finishing or already done. They will close the days permits if the work is complete or store them if the work is to continue tomorrow. Once the work is complete they will use the lockout attached to the permit to restore the equipment to use. Once all of the days maintenance is complete your job is to coninue modifiying corn starch and providing it to other sub departments for drying.
Third shift arrives and checks the maintenance schedule for the next day and prepares the equipment for lockout once it has been emptied and/or cleanes. Once the equipment is down and cleaned, it is to be locked out according to the permit. If there is no permit for the work one would be created detailing safety instructions and a drawn or printed lockout attached and if any chemicals may be contacted their MSDS will also be attached.

An ever changing large multinational where no one day is the same as another. A great company to work with despite feeling a little unfamiliar of late
Cargill PLC was the first company i joined after Leaving College and thankfully joining this company was and i believe always will be one of the best decisions i make in my working Life. Joining the company at a young age with no experience and having no idea what i wanted to do with my life, Cargill helped me find my feet and gain the experience required to really progress and develop myself.
I had the opportunities to really move around within the business in order to pick up and develop new skills, to get accustomed being 'thrown in the deep end' and learning to cope with situations i originally would not of found to be comfortable. I believe the freedom and exposure given to me by Cargill has been crucial in my personal development.
Each team i have worked within at Cargill has not only been enjoyable and comfortable but also extremely knowledgeable and willing to help others. The amount of time colleagues were happy to take out of their days to help me in my earlier years was unbelievable and one of my largest motivators for work was because i felt valued within teams i appreciated.
Unfortunately, due to a large number of changes happening throughout Cargill in recent years, the general Culture of the business and the atmosphere seems to have changed which in my opinion has been for the worse (from an employee relation's aspect). I believe that the changes have been made with good intentions but maybe to many in a short period of time, leading to a positive impa
Competitive salary at the cost of terrible work/life balance and frustrating management
This is for the London, ON location.
-competitive salary, bonus, RRSP matching and benefits
-develop firefighting, stress management and diplomacy skills
-would suggest for new graduates seeking having difficulty starting a career or just need any employment/leadership experience (for about 2 years)
-would suggest for people who enjoy/know how to play politics to climb the corporate ladder
-free food sometimes. Sensory products for testing and holiday events
-very diverse work group with a lot of ethnicities
-some very friendly and hard working people are definitely here buried amongst others who aren't
-absolutely abysmal work/life balance. Hourly are regularly mandated to work overtime (12 hours). Salary are not safe either: 9 hours a day minimum and there is work almost every weekend (Sat and Sun). Your schedule will change in short notice especially if your department runs more than one shift. Planning life outside work is difficult because of these.
-a lot of the hourly are jaded against management and the company. They only work here because they can't find this salary anywhere else and grow discontent by the day. This can lead to a toxic work environment.
-there is a glut in salaried staff that do little to seemingly nothing. You will often wonder "what does this person do?" and "who do I actually go to for a decision?".

Imagine being the new guy, going to break, seeing the contractor you recognize standing in the rain locked out. His contact wasn't suppose to be there for another 2 hours. Getting on the radio to call for someone just for the day shift manager to get so mad and so loud over the radio, the contractor sincerely apologized to me. I did everything I was suppose to do. I later found out why I got yelled at, the Manager didn't want to deal with someone else's problem.
Imagine someone taking your scissors so you had to go to the vending machine to get a new pair, but all the scissors fell over when the screw spun. Going to a Lead and informing him of the machine mess up and asked if he had a spare pair. Just to be later screamed and cussed out at by the trainer saying I wasn't allowed to go to the bosses. (He thought he was the boss). Training so inadequate, He would tell you once a 5 step process, very fast, 20 steps adding 4 other things all jumbled together and miss 3 steps, then get furious when you didn't know it. I brought a pen and paper the next day, he just said it even faster so I couldn't even write it down. Being told safety is #1, but being trained and told you have to skip safety or you won't be able to keep up.
Imagine being stuck with co-workers who would try to pick a argument every time with you, just to do your job. Be denied breaks by the same co-workers and Lead person who took half hour breaks and 45 min lunches, just because they dreaded your job. Being
