management looks after themselves. long hours forced overtime,
Machine Technician (Former Employee) –  Waynesboro, VAFebruary 12, 2018
Lower level management is hesitant to make critical decisions, people are afraid of the consequences of there decisions. You will get help if you get behind on your assignment. It can be difficult to learn , but once you learn its not too bad. You will be required to run multiply assignments.Some key positions are held by inexperienced head strong technicians. Keeping your assignment clean and orderly is a big focus You do have flexibility to manage your assignment.Higher service employees are at risk. Lots of favoritism.
Pros
Pay, Breaks, Freedom to move around.
Cons
Forced overtime, Favoritism

Horrible
Quality Operator (Former Employee) –  Camden, SCFebruary 6, 2018
The overall pay there is great with the hours that you work but the work environment is HORRIBLE, from the hot work area and the poor management and the breaks are short depending on how many people you have on your line, so say for instance you have 5 people you get a 45 min lunch break and there is no guarantee that you will get breaks in between,
Pros
Pay & Insurance
Cons
Short breaks, Poor Management, & Hot Work Area

Quality Operator (Current Employee) –  Camden, SCFebruary 3, 2018
12 hours shifts are really monotonous and tiring. Been there for one year, will not make it to 2 years. Supervisors play favorites and its obvious and blatant

Legal Analyst (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSFebruary 1, 2018
The corporate culture drives innovation, personal, and professional growth. The office environment is professional and the campus provides many conveniences including cafeteria, postal station, shops, dry cleaning and more. This is also a very competitive environment with opportunities to advance as skills increase.
Pros
Excellent pay and benefits

Forced overtime and terrible management on all levels
Spinning Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Camden, SCJanuary 27, 2018
What really makes this job so bad is the 12 hour rotating shift schedule. You are often forced to work over time even sometimes on short notice. Machines run terrible causing you to work hard for extended periods of time. Management will constantly force more work on you without increasing the pay.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Forced overtime, 12 hour rotating shift, terrible management

Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Camden, SCJanuary 26, 2018
Work was very hectic and fast paced. You had to make sure you kept up with the rest of the assembly line. There were swing shifts as well and we were allowed a seven day break.

Good pay. Long hours. Hot environment.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Lugoff, SCJanuary 15, 2018
Decent enough job if you're a hands on type person. Good pay and benefits.
It all comes down to how your positions are running, your teamates, and your supervisor. If your machines are running good, the job becomes easy which makes 12 hours seem like forever. Other most times you can stay plenty busy to make for a full productive day. L.A.
Pros
Good pay, benefits and other minor perks
Cons
Hot work place, very large facility, swing shift

Okay job
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Waynesboro, VAJanuary 5, 2018
Money is great, could be a very good job, just poorly managed, treat people like slaves. Benefits are good, forced overtime is crazy, I worked there for over 4 years and worked my butt off, no advancement or appreciation. Not a thank you or incentive.
Pros
Good pay and benifets
Cons
Poor treatment, too many long hours, not worth the money

I started working for Invista in 2013. The job is a great place to build a foundation but its just not a place where I would retire from. I hate the hours, its 12 hours rotating shifts, its very demanding and can sometimes be overwhelming, your not off on any holidays unless your scheduled to be off.
