Poor management and only move up by seniority
Shipping and Receiving Associate (Former Employee) –  Temple, TXDecember 4, 2017
Avoid working at East Penn like the plague. Merit means nothing for advancement. The only way to move up is to be there for a long period. Plant manager is one of the worst I have ever worked for. Lies when he is caught doing things against policy and will not admit to any wrong doing
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Long hours seniority to advance poor management

Started out of high school. Worked there 10 years. I didn't care for the repetition of the job and went to school. Decent wage and decent benefits. Insurance pays all of sons medical items related to his illness. Spouse still there. It gave us a well start for our young family.

Pasting Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Lyons, PANovember 14, 2017
This place would be a great fit for some people. It just wasn't a good fit for me. They have great benefits ad competitive pay. Some jobs require you to wear a respirator.

Class A Driver
Driver/Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORNovember 3, 2017
Working 12-14 hour days delivering batteries to customer locations. Great Customers is a plus. Lack of follow through and communication makes the warehouse stressful which makes the driver's job even more difficult. Decent company as long as you can handle lifting 40-140lbs. all day long.
Pros
Customers, Medical Benefits
Cons
Some members of management

Good job for after high school
Raw Fill (Former Employee) –  Lyons, PASeptember 27, 2017
This is one of those jobs where it pays higher than most, if not all in the area customer service positions. It is perfect for graduating high school, or college if you haven't found your career choice for a position. You will work a lot.

OK working conditions
Floater (Former Employee) –  Lyons, PAAugust 8, 2017
It's a fast paced company. Decent training. Mandatory OT.
Some managers better than others. Oppotunities to advance.
If you get in the right area it's a good place to work. If you get in a catty area I'd suggest you bid into another building.
Pros
Great Benefits, good pay
Cons
catty atmosphere, hot

Great Company!
Certified Medical Assistant (CMA) (Current Employee) –  Lyons, PAAugust 2, 2017
This is a family owned company that has quickly expanded. The owners of this company are doing great things. I don't feel they will ever go out of business. Everyone is working hard to keep up with the demand right now due to the unbelievable growth. It is always busy and there is always work to be done. If you are lazy this probably isn't the place for you. There are many different areas to work in.
Pros
401K, Company Bonus, $1 meals, and different gifts

Okay
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Lyon Station, PAJuly 30, 2017
Great jobs for production workers without an education. Pay/salary for degree holders is weak and does not measure up to most other companies. The ideology of "promote from within" has its pros AND CONS.
Pros

Cons

Decent company, poor controls group
Process Control Technician (Current Employee) –  Lyons, PAJune 30, 2017
I am part of the controls group at EPM. The department moves slow when getting people into a new position or out of training. The group is unprofessional, often discussing about not safe for work material. Whenever an intern asks a question they are often shutdown by co-workers especially if the intern is working on getting a 4 year degree. In addition it is frowned upon to even have a 4 year degree in this group.

I would not recommend working for this department.
Pros
Company picnic, yearly bonus
Cons
Short breaks (20 mins), low pay for maintenance, and 401k is $250 a year
