Meat Cutter Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Meat Cutter in New Orleans:
"It's not for everyone."
It's a fast paced job. You will stand up all day, lift 100 lb boxes through slippery coolers and freezers, unload pallets, clean clingy fat and rotten meat off of surfaces you'll have no idea how it managed to get to. Customers will blame you for things out of your own jurisdiction, management will blame you for what the customers do. You'll work harder, faster, and longer than most people for a fraction of a livable wage because somewhere down the line we decided that some jobs are of lesser stature than others. But if you're like me, you'll love every minute of it.

Meat Cutter in Windham:
"Hard work."
Give all you can to this trade and make a name for yourself within a company. You'll do fine.
