Working at Caraustar was a great learning experience. I learned how to operate multiple machines and how a tube was made. (which is something you really never think about.) My typical day would be working on Winder 4, start up the machine with my partner and make tubes. That consisted of measuring paper, hanging rolls of paper, stacking finished tubes on to pallets to be shipped out, and maintaining a clean and safe work area throughout the day. I was able to be trained on multiple machines and in all areas. I had great co-workers, we were all friends which made the work day enjoyable and also fun. My Supervisor was Awesome! He was professional, understanding, helpful, a great teacher, and also my friend. The hardest part of my job was having to get used to the monotony of making the same products. That's when great co-workers came in and made the job fun. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to learn how all of our products were made and who and where they would be shipped to. It was very interesting because nobody ever thinks about tubes and where the originate from. This is a wonderful place to work at, professional, benefits, fun, safe and friendly environment.
