Overall, it was a good place to work. We had company get-togethers, occasional free lunches, and safety awards for meeting guidelines.
Pros: good healthcare benefits
Cons: intense heat in summertime. unwillingness, at times, of management to address working conditions until something bad happens.
In a typical day at work, I would fill containers for shipment according to customer orders. I would help to load drumlines with required drums for orders. (Plastic or steel drums)
I learned what different hazard codes meant and the proper protection equipment for filling containers.
Management, for the most part, was helpful, but in some cases, employee – more... and safety problems were not addressed until something bad had happened.
My co-workers were easy to get along with and were helpful.
The hardest part of the job was putting on a chemical suit on hot days to fill containers. This had to be done, though, to protect me from harm.
The most enjoyable part of my job was to get the orders out in a timely manner and satisfying our customers. – less
