Inspector Packer (Former Employee) – Leola, PA – February 11, 2016
Dart is a place where you would go work if you didn't have any college experience or just came straight from high school. Being a packer doesn't require much thinking but it requires a good amount of labor.
Inspector Packer (Former Employee) – Mason, MI – January 18, 2016
I'm an inspector packer who worked at Dart as an I/P since 2002. But as of January 4th of 2016, I no longer work there. I liked the majority of the coworkers, the benefits, and the pay was decent. However, since new upper management took over, the work environment went on a down slide.
The new managers is the only problem I have with the Mason plant. They seems to only care about their numbers/production more than about their own employees. Quite a few good people were fired or left because of the unfair practices of management. Because of the many new changes prior to when I started back in 2002, if you can't keep up they will let you go.
However, one of the changes is they push their employees past their limits. The environment is too much stress and pressure because of the expectations of upper management. The work is harder and working your employees to death by mandating overtime for a long period of time is going to wear out their workers. I'll just say this. If you want to work in a place that offers hard work and a lot of hours of overtime, this job might be for you. If you don't like being mandated a lot of overtime to the point where you'll be running ragged, stay away from this place.
Packer/Inspector and trainer (Former Employee) – Horse Cave, KY – December 31, 2015
I worked for Dart for two years and I did a good job and was moved up to trainer. What I did was inspect the product and then I would box them and get them ready for shipping. However when the time came for management to take up for me on a certain matter I feel I was treated and talked to very badly. That is why I quit because I lost respect for their management.

Since management changed they over work people and if you cant keep up they let you go. management has no idea what its like to work on the floor. They are somewhat 2 faced. The few that have worked on the floor which made it to management are the only decent ones there.
work there for a year and four month, My first write was a out around molded that i was not trained to caught.my.Some people of choice got a coach class,i had only been there for 5 month, i feel that dart does not care about people that want to work,dont take the time to help they are quit to firer or write up.i also think it wrong that anther person shouldn`t get wrote up for others mistakes

Dart was a great company to work for. If I ever moved back I would work for them again it was a lot of fun. Dart container had a program wear trucks would come and sale employers steel toed boots or shoes. The company would pay half price for the shoes wich i though was great. The company had a schedule were i woud work three on than three off days than two on than two off days. It was a great schedule I loved it so much.
Offers good benefits. Workload is finally getting stable across departments. SAP implementation and the merger of Solo cup were tremendous undertaking

Offers good benefits. Workload is finally getting stable across departments. SAP implementation and the merger of Solo cup were tremendous undertaking that employees were solely focused on the last 3 and a half years

There are many different places you could be put however the building I am in is very fast paced, packers are expected to go at their top speed all night and if you get caught stopping you will get into trouble as well as having to deal with operators who get away with everything the supervisors blame everything on packers and allow operators to do whatever.
