Company has a good/great vibe, some of the people are very friendly and respectful..
I feel that their is no room for advancement in my department other than Lead. I feel there should be other means of advancement in my area (warehouse).

Loads of opportunity to enhance production skills and overtime
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Cortland, NYJanuary 3, 2017
Alpla isn't for everyone as the air is extremely dry and the hours can be very long, standing on cement floors all day and night. It's also difficult to get to know anyone there because everyone is so busy and in their own social groups. If you simply need to work and work a lot it may be the perfect place for you though. While working there I made a ton of money in a short amount of time due to overnights and doubles, and also got to work a wrapping machine and several assembly lines. All in all, a good place.
Pros
Doubles and overtime
Cons
Cement floor, very dry, standing for long hours, and you're never really sure who your supervisor is here

Long hours and hard shifts
PACKER (Former Employee) –  Jefferson City, MOJuly 15, 2016
the hardest part of the job was the 12.5 hour shifts and the constant ness of being on your feet for the whole time. You stood, made boxes, sent them down a line. Soap bottles would get dropped into them and then you'd load them onto a pallet. And then you'd repeat and it'd get even worse when the machine would mess up as well.

You never knew whether or not you were going to work or if the people you worked for were going to be there one day or not. They went through management quite a bit.

PACKAGING OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYJanuary 13, 2016
This was a easy job but a hard job at the same time because there would be sometimes that no one could keep up. I loved it though because time flew by. Supervisors needed to learn how to talk to and treat the employees

not a good place to work company doesn't like to give breaks
Packaging Operator (Former Employee) –  Cortland, NYJuly 29, 2015
very fast paced long 12 hour shifts not a problem until your not getting any breaks, management doesn't like to talk to employees. coworkers are great they like to help when they can. hardest part of the job would be 12 hours on your feet with not much of a break. best part was working with great coworkers.
