Packer (Former Employee) – Eden, NC – April 19, 2017
A typical day at work consists of standing for long periods of time packing products in a box in very heated conditions . What I have learned are different procedures of how a warehouse operates and the management was laid back, the culture was more saturated in social deities more than shipping out desired numbers for production incentives. The warehouse was dangerous and there were vast amounts of white mold from the erosion of concrete and is indeed not a place to store clothing, the hardest part of the job was that the conditions was that of working in 100 degree conditions. The most enjoyable part of the job was working to yourself and having plenty of time to work at our own pace.

I packed boxes of plastic glasses for McDonalds, Dairy Queen, Starbucks. I learned how to run a convery belt, and how to stack them on the palet. Ok. Very friendly help if you didn't know. Putting the cups on the belt. The pay.

I would drive to rural hall every night , be on time , some days you may get a line depending on the production , then some days you wont. its a iffy job that doesn't pay much and its very stressful. Nobody could live off a paycheck from Sonoco.

This is great for the in between people. With capped wages and no chance to move up much I wouldn't suggest debbies as a permanent job. They will offer "voluntary" overtime but expect to have more employees than the department employs sign up to work thus "forcing" them to make it mandatory.
Demanding management, mandatory overtime, being repetatively told what to do even when you know your duties
The company makes sure there is work for you even when that work assignment might be ending, they will be will to put to right back to work in a different job area. this company is making sure you get the job that best fit you so you will have a chance to be hired on full-time
Assembler/Production (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – February 21, 2017
Jobs that they send you to are not very good. You get worked for a little while and they send you home for the day. Sometimes they send you to jobs such as Sonoco / Coreflex and say they don't need you after you are there.
Poor management, Lousy working conditions, and Arrogant supervision with no respect for the employees they manage.
line worker (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – February 9, 2017
we worked in a factory with no air conditioner in 100+ weather. They did not seem to care about their employees or if the passed out from the heat. They would tell them to get up and back to work or leave. They were about the product which they should be but they needed to take care of staff as well. Making minimum wage with what they expected was not good.
bad building managers, not enough care about workers.
It hires about everyone and if you need a job they will give your chance
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Iowa City, IA – February 2, 2017
I would go to work and we would sit in the break areas until the last shifts gets off work. We go start our shift and most people would want to work but just like everywhere else you get people who don't want to work. Some people make it easier on you and do their job and others make is so you have to do their job for them. I learned how to work at a fast pace to keep the line moving and how to communicate with a bunch of different kinds of people from different backgrounds. Management was about average. The hardest part was when you have to do your job and another persons job I liked that you will meet a bunch of other people from places you never thought you would meet or interact with.
they will hire you onto the company if you are a good worker
