Human Resources Associate (Current Employee) – Akron, OH – April 20, 2017
The MBM culture they try to instill is great overall, but it only exists at the corporate level, not in the mills/plants. Very quiet, unfriendly culture which made it extremely boring, but not hostile or over demanding. Training to new hires is extremely lacking throughout all levels of positions. However, the pay and benefits are amazing (perks of a private company), and at my location, time off and schedules were extremely flexible and accommodating. Overall, boring but very steady employment.
Contractor- Crawford Boiler and Stokes Masonry (Former Employee) – Rincon, GA – March 29, 2017
The shut down for the plant was short but just basic repairs to the boiler and a few tanks. Replaced man-ways and, fixed hot spots. Management was great, we were given a task and was left alone to do what we were told. We where in a hurry but the job as well planned and went as planned, finished on schedule. There was not a real hardest part of the job it was a good job all the way around.
Winder Operator (Former Employee) – Crossett, AR – March 29, 2017
To work here is like going to a third world country every day where every one is mad and hates being alive they hate the supervisors and the supervisors are just out to cut each other's throats in effort to get to the top
Diesel Mechanic/Fleet Manger (Former Employee) – Taylorsville, MS 39168 – March 28, 2017
As a diesel mechanic you will always be on call. 24/7. Long hours. No help. Pay can be descent. Management lacks knowledge about trucking at a maintenance stand point. Some deadlines they set are just unreal.
terrible health insurance, always on call, no help
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Hawthorne, FL – March 25, 2017
if you like to make lots of money then GP is the right place to work. you can get all the learning experience that you want working between different departments. Management is great and the employees are to the work mite be a little stressful at times. But the moneys$$$$$$GOOD.
I did not like the bosses, they would treat me like I didn't know what I was doing or that I didn't need to be there. The others in the mill working would act unprofessional by walking by my office to check me out and leave message to talk to them.
Project Engineer (Former Employee) – Alabama – March 22, 2017
GP has one of the better work life balances of any company I know of. 40 hour work weeks are the normal and they only expect you to work as much as it takes to get your job done each week. Outage season can get a little hectic with extremely long days and weeks but they try to make that up to you
management is always out trying to find a reason to terminate workers. coworkers are for the most part are great. pay is good not so good for new employees under the new labor contract. infighting among management. management does not follow their own rules. they expect more with less. better have eyes in the back of your head.
BUSINESS/BRAND MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 20, 2017
Consistent planning and training. Worked with Reps across the US to educate and train them on the Brand. Management is the same but the task and objectives are the changing factors. I enjoy a team culture that embraces a team culture. The most difficult part of the job was the disorganization in the beginning. The inadequate brand relations and knowledge of the company delayed to implementation of the strategic plan. Working with a team to implement a plan toward success. I enjoy working with a team.
Travel, Flexibility, Challenges, etc.
R&D that resulted in inadequate information that was previously presented
MERT/clockroom (Current Employee) – Camas, WA – March 16, 2017
Georgia pacific is a awful place to work, the long hours and shifts rotations made it extremely difficult to have a life outside of just eating, sleeping, and working. there are 3 shifts 7 days long 8 hours each with more often than not turn into 12 or 16 hours shifts.
