excellent package
Picker/Packer (Current Employee) –  Noble MetalsJune 27, 2017
Scanning your pass to go through security system, checking computer emails to print off jobs to do, going out onto main site to use Fork-truck moving jobs to other gates for collection and collecting goods that have been delivered,back through security to continue picking and then packing orders, we all work from experience and knowledge of day to day job's. I have learned how to do the work and chase your next job through years of experience and using this to get to know systems. All departments work together to make this a friendly work place very clean Health & Safety as top priority, monthly team meetings, best part of job is satisfaction and knowing you been so busy the day soon goes, and you get appreciated and a good wage.
Pros
free dinners, clothing, bonus, working hours.
Cons
travelling

Ok
Material Control, Production Coordinator (Former Employee) –  West Chester, PAJune 21, 2017
Great benefits, major management culture change happened several years ago. Little to no advancement. Promotions were not based on work ethic but more so on politics.

JM is a joke.
Material control. (Former Employee) –  Smithfield, PAJune 20, 2017
JM does not care about its employees. They try to be "efficient" by cutting back on the amount of employees and adding on to work load. You aren't allowed to socialize with coworkers while on the job. They treat you like a child.
Pros
None.
Cons
No breaks. Very hot inside. Managers/supervisors are all for themselves.

Good environment for Developing your career... If you can balance shift work in your life
Mechanical Electrical Instrumentation Technician (Current Employee) –  Conshohocken, PAFebruary 16, 2017
Great company to work for. Being a Pharmaceutical plant you are required to document almost anything you do. The structure of this company widens the general scope of a normal employee's responsibilities. As a Technician in the work force, I was also expected to coordinate, schedule, preform, and document all of my own work. While also coordinating contracters. The environment is mostly inside. It can be very hot in the summer, however very luxurious all winter. Rotating shift is about the only schedule you can obtain unless you are in a managing or engineering position. Being a father of 3, this can be very hard to balance your home life. Great benefits, fair pay, and a global company. Making it possible to move your career.
Pros
Good pay, great benefits, great for developing your career
Cons
Rotating shift work

Great union workforce despite poor management
Former planner (Former Employee) –  West Chester, PADecember 21, 2016
Business unit metrics controlled by detached CEO. Operations has no morals or compassion. They only care about promoting themselves. There is absolutely no advancement opportunities. Hard work is rewarded with additional responsibilities.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
Secure facility no metal, phones, jewelry, etc. awful safety record, 9 hour shift

Safety is out the window
MR Fix IT (Former Employee) –  West Deptford, NJJuly 24, 2016
They are NOT SAFETY conscious at ALL!!! When something happens, it is all hush hush. There is NO learning that comes out of it. Surprised OSHA does NOT come down on them harder. Also, people are NOT valued. The head of HR has affiliation with the township in a HIGH RANKING capacity, so, some of what is done is for show! This is a union shop, but, HR runs the show. If you are NOT in the click with them, FORGET IT! Some harassment goes on, but, if you are in the CLICK, it is all swept under the rug! They are out to get you like scavengers. Will make up lies to get you! People are allowed to say and do what they want if they are in the click. If you are NOT in the click, you are treated like garbage until your need has been fulfilled and then you are thrown out on the street like trash without a can! Would totally recommend checking into things before starting working there, unless you are TOTALLY desperate!
Pros
Still wondering!
Cons
HORRIBLE treatment, pay is lousy, MUST be an BUTT KISSER

Productive Workplace
Automation Technician (Current Employee) –  Smithfield, PAMay 17, 2016
Productive workplace. There are a lot of projects to be done to better the workers and production time. 12 hour shifts on a 2-2-3 schedule. Co-workers are generally nice. They try to hire young to keep workers for a while. Turnover rate is a little on the high side.
Pros
Free lunches when goals are met
Cons
A lot of times you work on your lunch break

Horrible/boring/0 culture
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAApril 25, 2016
If you want job security then this is a job for you. It is horrible to work here, even boring. There is zero culture and hardly any of the employees talk to each other. This makes for a horrible work environment and the only thing that is on your mind is when you can have your first drink or when you can go home.
Pros
Job Security
Cons
Boring, horrible work environment, low pay
