    I have been working at Bunge North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many opportunities inside the Plant to grow as a professional Excellent Safety Culture Personnel are very kind and helpful High level of pro activity from senior operators

    Cons

    HR takes very long time for hiring process Overwhelming work responsibilities due to lack of supervisors It’s located in a very small Mennonite Town at 1h 30min from the main city. Nothing to do in town Lack of support on employee’s transfers to another Bunge Plant

    Advice to Management

    Reinforce supervisor’s support

    I worked at Bunge North America

    Pros

    Its a job, that's it. You can sit for hours and hours, nobody will know and surf Facebook

    Cons

    Sexual misbehavior by Sr Management is wide spread Racial profiling (must be white male) for advancement Company admits it has serious internal problems with Old Boys Club HR Cannot be trusted Raises are 1% at best Staff have been in position a long time, not open to change Workload vs Pay is very poor IF You are educated, experienced, DO Not work here, it will be career ending Sr Leadership preach Safety as... lip service, in truth it is a very unsafe, deadly workplace Typically any person who is in a Sr Role here is the bottom 5% talent, skill, education wise IF you hire in as a new person, the people long serving, will work against you This is a company that is akin to working in the 1970's, not progressive DO not work here, or if you must, just stay until better comes along soon. This will be the blemish on your future resume

    Advice to Management

    Terminate all Sr Management and start over Hire people with experience from the outside vs internal dead beats Pretty much everything this company does, is not modern. Bunge Stock, Safety record and time spent in court proves it is on the wrong track

    I worked at Bunge North America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Overtime available, 12 hour mandatory shifts in June.

    Cons

    The most dangerous place you can imagine. Explosive hazards (there was one major explosion before I started there. Fall hazards galore. Extremely hot/cold work conditions. Management are bullies.They don't see a problem with working you to death; almost every mechanic there was either hurt, or had been badly hurt in the past. Before I started there was one fatality in production, with almost daily major injury... reports from other locations. The union sucks. Wouldn't work there again if it was the last job on Earth.
