Warehouse associate, shipping/receiving, trainer (Current Employee) – Leola, PA – August 8, 2017
A typical day at work involves loading trailers with a squeeze lift.The job requires a case per hour as far as loading goes and staying on task to meet these requirements. Its a tough job and not everyone succeeds in making it. There are many great people that work there. The environment is very relaxed all the time and management is wonderful. I enjoy the job very much

The machines here NEVER work. The whole entire shift you will hear machine after machine alarm go off because the machines are no good. Training is not good. They should have a room set up where they train new employees on every possible incident that will and can occur. Supervisors treat you like you everything is your fault. The machines there have a mind of their own, and even the mechanics can not fix them most of the time. The pay and benefits are good, but everything else sucks.
Pay and benefits
Machines not working, stressful position, little to no help from supervisors

I have learned a lot working at Dart Container. My immediate supervisor has been a pleasure to work with. I really enjoy the Sales Reps and Customers that I deal with on a daily basis; they are very friendly.

The job is fairly simple to do. But you might as well stay through the temp service. They have it better than newly hired employees. Yeah, they have benefits but temps have a less strict attendance policy than newly hire employees who have worked their butts off to get hired and can only have 3 occurrences in your 90 days. Should it not be the other way around? Shouldn't the company be more lenient toward the ones who have worked hard to get hired?
Forklift Operator/Material Handler (Former Employee) – Thomaston, GA – July 14, 2017
Very chill company, open door policy, room to grow within department and cross department. Overall great people to work with. The key to success is to work for a good manager/director and department. Some tuition reimbursement, great health benefit, life insurance,
The building is in bad condition not a safe place to work they need osha to come in for inspection need a new roof when it rains there's a lot of leaks inside the place and they don't take pride in their products
Inspector/Packer (Current Employee) – Lithonia, GA – July 9, 2017
It's an ok place to work if u need a job to get you by until you find something better.The company has new managers,high turnover rate with IP's and Cup Mechanics,Print Setup Mechanics,.I think the biggest issue is the heat although they do have AC blowers over the machines which helps but still the heat is unbearable at times.Its a fast paced environment and always having issues out of machines and a lot of new cup mechanics who to me haven't been properly trained so the machines stay messing up.The 12 hour work schedule isn't bad cause you have more days off but it's a long time to work in that heat but overall ok job
Decent pay, good benefits, Close to my house
Short breaks, new supervisors, heat, No proper training

Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Cave City, KY – July 3, 2017
I have basically all negative things to say about Dart Container, outside of the reasonable benefits. I cannot go into enough detail on how hot this factory gets. On top of having no air to breathe through your whole shift in the heat, you are working on machines that break down constantly no matter how you maintain them. The factory desperately needs new technology, and seems like its stuck 50 years into the past.
Unreasonably hot, outdated machines, terrible management (They are never around)
