Erin, Quality Control

"I am a fairly new employee of Foster Farms. I have noticed the balance between support and accountability. As a new employee I have been provided with support from all areas of the company. The balance to this high level of support is a high level of accountability. As I have been encouraged, I have also been challenged. Everyday is an opportunity to learn, grow and increase your level of performance. It is a team effort company wide, and everyone contributes. I have really enjoyed being a Foster Farms employee and look forward to my future with such a progressive company."
