Basic Factory Job
Operator (Current Employee) –  Madison, SDApril 4, 2017
I worked as an operator and it is a basic factory job. Boxing parts, knowing how to stack and place parts, watch for damage, light paperwork fill outs. Pay is decent.

Not bad, if you're into that sort of thing.
Operator (Former Employee) –  Brookings, SDJuly 30, 2015
I wasn't a huge fan of the work, but that's not their fault. I found the people to be friendly, and the leadership to be competent. My only gripe would be that they use a hiring agency, and you don't really work for Falcon Plastics themselves, but a lot of manufacturers do this.

Were I wanting to do a manufacturing job again, Falcon plastics would be a good place to go.
Pros
Nice people, Competent Leadership
Cons
Temp to Hire/Hiring Agency

Machine Operator/Packer (Former Employee) –  Lexington, TNDecember 30, 2013
a typical day would be looking at the board to see what machines you are assigned to an the you must releave whoever is on that set.i learned a lot about operating new machines an how most things plastic were made.my co workers were ok depending on the day they had.the hardest part of the job would be if u were on seven different machines at once kinda hard to keep up with them all.the most enjoyable part for me was learning new things.
Pros
employees
Cons
if u had to many machines
