Back Feeder Operator (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – July 5, 2016
Well I thought that I was going to finish my career out with Lorillard but then they got bought out and turned into ITG Brands which in the end is what got me and over 500 people laid off when it was Lorillard it was a great place to be. Although I got laid off it still had great benefits and pay but after everything was said and done we did not get a grand separation package deal that I think many people were expecting. The plant itself was a very gossip type place but other then that that's all I can say.
excellent pay, non stressful work task, majority of supervisor were relax style not all but most, great benefits, work schedule was great, holiday's off were great
gossiping emoployees, a very hot environment, lack of managment accoutability, to many supervisor for a shift, hard to advance.
Assist the chemist on their projects. Clean all six labs before and after the work day. Enjoyable part of my job is learning different technique from the chemists. Co workers are a good people to be around and discuss different lab work flow. My management is very open to any suggestion that we may have. Good environment over all.

Lorillard is a good company. The local reps are wonderful and hard working. The one thing I was not a fan of is smoking in the office. It's a tobacco company so what should I do? Well, I just decided it wasn't for me.
Administrative (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – May 31, 2015
I worked for Lorillard for just shy of 7 years in the corporate office. I found it to be the most demoralizing work experience of my life. People in my own department were rude, clique-ish, and so unpleasant to work for, as well as dishonest. I cried everyday before going to work. The CEO came in in 2010 with a hidden agenda to sell,the company to our biggest competitor, which finally came out in the local paper. Very little work to do, was told to "look busy" despite repeated requests for work, very MAD MEN like. Women had their place and white men are all the senior level managers. No advancement for women or minorities. People there are miserable, from what my friends who work there say. Terrible work environment.
High salary, decent benefits although cut back in 2013
Horrible work environment, no room for advancement, lying management, lots of horrible people

retired sales employee for many years , without doubt the best of the tobacco company's to work for but like anything it is changing. Company is now being merged bought out by Reynolds American. New CEO came on board and window dressed company and sold it with new CEO making a bundle.
extremely regimented, low pay no bonus, commission be prepared to have management follow you around every other week
