boring
Assembly Worker (Former Employee) –  tiffin,ohioMay 21, 2016
not a great place to work, supervisors have favorites , if you are not one of them you will be out the door soon, you never get hired in full time, is always on a temp basis, no benefits, only get 2 15 min. breaks, the co-workers most were ok, but a few did their best to get others fired if they did not like them and it worked as the "queen" bee was the bosses girlfriend, got to do what she wanted , some could come in late or not show up at all several times a week, nothign said about it. there was nothing hard about the job itself, you either taped corner of boxes or pinched corner of boxes together til the glue held, the only hard part of it all was dealing with the favoritism out there. most enjoyable part of the job was working mon. through fri, never on a sat. if you needed to work over it was during the week only and you were always out at 3:00 pm
Pros
it was easy job
Cons
drama, favoritism, no benefits

Good workplace, a weath of "want to" in the work force.
Purchasing Manager (Former Employee) –  Morrilton, ARApril 27, 2016
Typical day was good, busy, challenging and interactive with all levels. Building the Continuous Improvement program from scratch was the biggest learning. Purchasing Staff top notch, great individuals and teammates. Hardest part, I would not say there was one. The location and people made the mill an opportune place for employment.

micro management, they pay skill trades the same whether you have a licence or not. met some nice workers there but wouldn't recommend a job there unless you have no skills. the boys club
a union that takes your money and does nothing for It.
Pros

Production is always better when machine runs smoothly.
Machine Operator-Corrugator/knifeman (Former Employee) –  El Paso, TXAugust 1, 2013
A typical day at work would be, arriving at ten for split shift. Relieving first shift knifeman and taking control of operations. At times first shift knifeman would come back after lunch break and I would relieve the other first shift operators until everyone on that shift had lunch.At end of first shift I would take over operations and continued the rest of my shift.I learned that split shifts helped employers save money to avoid paying overtime in my opinion.Management and co-workers were most very good people and easy to work with until one co-worker made supervisor.Most, if not everyone(crew) felt it was getting to his head.Hardest part was possibly running very short orders with very short lineal footage back to back at high speeds. Most times felt like a challenge but when production floor was full it would tend be a little frustrating not being able to move production out smoothly.Most enjoyable part of the day was running operation smoothly without stopping or having mechanical or operational mishaps. Some days there would be machine problems that affected quality,such as loss of pressure or heat.Most of the time operators and myself would try to diagnose and or trouble shoot problem before calling for maintenance assistance.Other times operators would have paper breaks or not enough time to put rolls in for paper change which cause stops.All crew members would help rethread paper,remove waste ,put rolls in and set up splices.
Pros
Free lunches normally were maybe once a year for no safety work incidents.
