ran machinescheduled for my shift
Sealer Operator (Former Employee), clinton, iowaNovember 16, 2014
Ran the machine that was scheduled for me on shift. sometimes more than one in a day depending on freight that was due. Management was co operative and helpful if they were needed for input and guidance on final say on quality issues or other questions that were job related. My fellow workers were helpful and looked out for your safety and theirs. Worked – more... as a team. The hardest part of my job was changing some of the belts that would have to be replaced when they broke. The most enjoyable part of the job was everyone from management on down could work together to meet production standards and treat each other with respect. – less

Good work ethic and company dedication a must.
Emergency Medical Technician (Captain) (Current Employee), Waynesville, NCNovember 10, 2014
A typical day at work begins with safety and ends with safety. You have to be mindful of your surroundings at all times and what is going on.

I have learned to approach all situtations with an open mind.

Management is only concerned about the recordable number of accidents and does whatever they can to eliminate having to record them.

My co-workers – more... have very little enthusiasm for thier jobs or management.

The harderst part of the job is being locked into 12 hour shift and having to give up your off days, by being forced in, sometimes working 14 days straight without a break. You have to cancell appointments and family time,that happens too often.

The best part of the job is knowing that I have the determination to overcome the trials and challenges that have been presented with this position, and the ability to meet the head on. – less

Assistant Operator/ Operator Certified (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCOctober 21, 2014
Pros: gain sharing
Cons: no cons
Typical day/night/eve would be to assist Operator, and looking forward to knowing how many orders for the day/eve/night we were looking to run, exciting challenging ourselves in producing many orders in one shift,I have learned many trouble shooting skills on our press from Operator I assisted,a very interesting and meaningful time there. My challenge – more... in myself becoming a Press Op I,II,III in four years and being the only female on my press was in itself a mixture of lots and lots of hard work, lots of challenges working with all males, and most of the time lots of fun, and that to me was the most enjoyable at times. Probably the hardest part pertaining to that job for me was getting use to the rotating of 1rst, 2nd, and 3rd shifts every two weeks, but as time passed it was easier. I think management was fair as they could be........I enjoyed working there and climbing that ladder I successfully climbed!!.

MY STAY AT EVERGREEN PACKAGING HAS BEEN PLEASANT YET LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR ME........
START DATE THERE WAS OCT. 2007 , MY END DATE WAS MAY 3,, 2014. – less

Quality and Safe
Converting/Sealing Quality Assurance Technician (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCJune 21, 2013
Pros: company dinners for meeting quota or for being safe, quarterly payouts and raises
Cons: short breaks and rotating shifts every 2 weeks
My typical day at Evergreen Packaging started as soon as we punched the clock. We had to wear hairnets, steel toe shoes, and aprons, which were a part of our GMP rules and regulations. I was a Quality Assurance Technician, so we had to find the previous team to pass along any problems that they may have had to occur during there shift and the same when – more... our shift ended. Quality was our number 1 motto. During my time there I learned how to use SAP and more usage of Microsoft Word and Excel. I also learned the specifications we had to meet dealing with the products we produced. The hardest part was learning everything and trying to keep it stored in mind without looking back over the notes I took during training. With the help of my supervisor and co-workers, I learned everything in no time. – less

dont apply there
Pressman (Former Employee), Olmsted Falls, OHMay 14, 2013
Pros: you can make a little money if willing to work 60 plus hours
Cons: everything else esp. manangement and there union
they treat good workers like trash and bad workers like gold. oh and if you get hurt there well you get fired. long hours like 60 hours a week management dont care. your just a number there. and advancement? forget about that everything its by bids and if you want a pressmans bid think again. i learned everything within 9 months including how to run – more... a press. i was there six years and they would have me run a press but wouldnt give me a bid although they would have me jump over people to run a press. you can not advance there unless you there for 40 years. also there union is weak. unless your in there clique well your on your own and they never speak up for you. the union takes your money every week and does nothing – less

mismanaged, overall worst place to work
slave (Current Employee), olmsted fallsApril 7, 2013
Pros: good money because of all the overtime
Cons: if you work to live, you will live to work here. rarely do you get time off.
1940's obsolete equipment that always needs repair. numerous bad. decisons leading to mandatory overtime with employees paying the price with 60-68 hrs a week, even when you are ahead there is still overtime. you cant plan anything because management never lets you know what hours your working until the last minute.since 2005 there has been 32 formans, – more... 5 human resource people, 3 plant managers,at least 100 hourly employees, you do the math. overall if you enjoy life or have a life this isnt a place you want to work. – less

Very business focused work environment but provide opportunity to have fun activities with employess and their family outside of the workplace.
Material handler (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCFebruary 15, 2013
Pros: good pay and benefits.
Cons: long rotating hrs, no opportunity for career advancement, work in temperture consistent to the weather outside, unbalance family life due to the rotating hrs.
Overall, I believe Evergreen Packaging is a good company to work for. As with all companies it has its disadvantages. At typical day is routine everyone knows what their job would consist of for that day. If the work day consist of anything extra it would be discussed during the department meeting. The management teams are overall friendly and keeps – more... all employees informed of the business operations. The co-workers are fun to work with.The hardest part of my day is would be working long rotating hours and working temperature that is consistent with the weather outside. The most enjoyable part is that i work independently. – less

I agree with the maintenence employee....
manufacturing team member (Current Employee), kalamazoo, MIOctober 31, 2012
Pros: it's a paycheck
Cons: you trade it for your life
The money is ok, but there is no regard whatsoever for employee's lives outside of work. It is the most poorly run operation I have ever seen in my life. Currently, several departments are working mandatory 12 hour shifts on 5 or 6 days of the week, and you never know about weekends til Thursday or Friday. If we work Sunday, you usually get out after – more... 8 hours, that is as much as they care. As an employee of over 10 years, trust me... you can never plan ANYTHING. Except 1 thing, you can plan on never being told about a job well done. – less
