You usually only have one week that you actually get 40 hours a week, every other week is 40+.OT usually is based around another person being absent fo some reason,you will work anywhere from 8 to 16 hours in a day .They rotate from days one week to nights the next and one time each month not counting your other off days you will have 6 consecutive days off which is always nice ,on some occasions you might have to work a day or two or even all of them when your're off.Pay is great and mixed with the over time it really gives you a chance to catch up on some bills or just buy some other things in general.Labor wise its nothing hard or physically demanding.Management seems to be ok,only thing I usually hear people complain about is not having enough time for their family but other than that its a pretty good place to work
Good pay, insurance, not physically demanding
Dusty, some machines are outdated, only 5 points for attendance
Assembly Line Operator (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – May 28, 2016
Fun you always had something to do to that occupied your time and I learned how to operate different machines and I learned how to make toilet paper and paper towels. Management was good because they were always helpful and coworkers were fun because everyone had good attitudes and personality's. The hardest part of the jobs was staging and the most enjoyable was working with different machines
The culture of this company is the worst I have ever experienced. The mill is a nasty place, floors are never sterilized and product is dropped and returned to the line packaged and sold. Out dated machinery constantly back down. Management bullies employees and the union is worthless and uninformed. Schedules are continuously changed, from week to week, from day to night and employees’ lives, health and welfare is totally disregarded. This place is the worst.
benefits and pay is good but not worth the long hard hours and ever changing schedule
management unprofessional and bullies, no real union support
Line Lead / Winder Technician (Former Employee) – memphis,tn – March 7, 2015
the worst work enviroment i have ever encountered. The entire management team including HR needs to be replaced. Very bullish work place. Management doesn't know how to talk and be respectable to employees. No room for advancement unless u are involved in the ongoing buddy systems.. Job skills do not get you ahead they only leave you stuck in that position. Decent pay but you have no time for family. You dont get to take your vacation days when u want them.. The rotating schedule in use is the worst on your body. The Union doesn't do anything for the employees so there is no need to join.
management, healthcare cost, union, work enviroment
