“After graduating from Cal Poly University, I joined the Foster Farms Live Production Team. I have enjoyed my journey with Foster Farms for many reasons. In a company with 12,000 employees and such varied jobs as business systems analyst and water treatment engineer, it is nice to know that everyone is on your side and working for the same goal. My co-workers are like family. We share ideas and suggestions to help each other and the company grow. I love the casual yet highly professional atmosphere this creates. People often ask me, “Can you still eat chicken after what you do at work all day?” I say, “Absolutely!” That’s because I know the hard work and effort that everyone puts in to making our product outstanding. ”
