Dead end job. No good raises. You have to keep up with daily production quota and know how to fix machines. In the summer time the location temperature reaches over 100 degrees. Felt like quitting everyday.
I would start at 6 a.m. and we would have to run bags of coin into a counting machine that then rolled the coins and dropped them in a conveyor belt. I would have to keep 3 counting machines filled with coin and then run to the boxer and step on a pedal to fill a box. The counting machine would jam alot because of bad coin or foreign coins. I had to keep quality control and maintain my fast pace. I enjoyed trying to compete with my other employees on who could finish the fastest. The hardest part of the job was when the coins were bad. I had great co-workers and I got along great with my supervisor. I learned a bit about the counting machines and made sure they kept running smoothly.
job gets you in great shape
short breaks, no room to move up, very little raise

Worked for a few years. I was always told i would be promoted and it just never happens. They closed another location in the area without informing workers until a few weeks before. Pay should be higher for the crazy amount of physical labor. Just a boring job. Certainly not a career or good job to have in my opinion.
managment, boring, no breaks, pay, raises, promotion opportunity
Machine Operator/Shift Lead (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 20, 2013
On Average wrap about 550 box's a day. I learned about sorting machines and company management. My supervisor was Cool as well as my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the longer work hours for bigger orders. the best part about the job was guaranteed work hours each week.

Good company to work for You get trained very well and feel a since of pride by reaching your goals. The best part of the job has to be the shift. 7-3 Monday through Friday because you still get days and weekends
A typical day at work starts with going through a metal detector for security purposes. After that everyone is told what type of coin they will be wrapping for the day and then all the machines are turned on. It is a lot of repetitive work and there is also heavy lifting involved. I learned how to fix many machines. The manager was in the process of hiring new clients, and also bringing in new equipment into the work space to ameliorate production. The hardest part of the job was lifting the heavy bags into the black bins, but I did get stronger through the pain. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning all of the buttons and dials on the machines.
since it is constant non stop working environment a typical 8 hr shift can go by quick. I've learned how to operate company machinery at a safely manner. Management is very strict with rules and regulations because it can be a hazardous environment if machinery isn't operated properly. Hardest part of job would be keeping machines running non stop when receiving bad coins because you would have to stop it and pull out every bad coin. Most enjoyable part is that once you are used to this daily routine and gain the proper equipment knowledge, everything becomes a walk in the park.
when quota is reached and you clean up before 8 hr shift is over, the rest of the day is yours no matter how much extra time there is.

I first go in and punch in my arrival time. Then I would check to see if any machines were taken off line. The goal was to keep all the machines running and the spare machines ready to go if they were ever needed. Made sure the stock of supplies such as hand cleaners, parts for the machines, papers and boxes for finished products were available for use. We had a quota to fill each day and this was always our main focus . I got on with my co-workers, But Coin Wrap sub-let building space from Dunbar Armor and I found it hard to get other product needed from them to carry out the task and quota signed to us. This was also the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable was travelling to other locations and repairing machineries.
