Good steady work,but i'm tired of not getting any raises
Department Supervisor (Current Employee), Scottdale, PASeptember 14, 2013
Pros: enjoy training machine adjuster's to watch them learning a skill.
Cons: 38 years of dedicated service with no recognition, bringing home 42, 000 a year. took one weeks vac. from me and outragous health ins.
Work 2pm to 11:30,go over daily schedule with previous supervisor,
help assign machine operators to machines to run,do a walk through in the department for poor housekeeping from previous shift and get them taken care of before they clock out. Check machine speeds
and document on our shift update sheet. Check quality of envelopes
being folded,sign off – more... on jobs that have been put in by different adjusters on machines for approval of work and quality for the customers specs.Turn in work orders to the maintenance dept. or electrical dept. for issues on equiptment. watch for any safety issue's
such as empty pallets standing on end, find out who did it an instruct that employee not to do that for it may fall and hit someone on the leg. Communicate with adjuster's about any sense of urgency orders that have to get filled before the deadline of a tractor trailer leaves,cause the are on a time schedule. We have a schedule daily that when work orders are filled and sent to the warehouse,we have to take them off our schedule as completed.
The hardest part of my job is the communication between the front office on how many envelopes on orders have to ship and a certain timeframe to get them to the warehouse. When i call the shipping supervisor, he tells me that he don't need 30,000 to ship by 6 o'clock,
he only needs 12,500. So i call the plant manager to tell him this and he said to talk to so&so,he has all the info. so i called so&so,and he tells me that the other shipping clerk was right,that's all they needed.MAN WAS I TICKED OFF.We busted our BUTTS for nothing!!!!
But we managed to get what the customer wanted.

The most enjoyable part of my job is making people smile, let them know that i'm no better than them. Some people let the supervisor's
position go to their heads and feel that they are bulletproof and can talk to employee's any way they can,yelling and screaming in front of other's. Those are the one's you have to watch out for,they'll slit your throat and give you a smile. – less

I HOPE the company survives a severely declining base of business
Sr. Business Analyst (Former Employee), Frisco, TXMay 17, 2013
Pros: great people!!
Cons: business is drying up....rapidly.
National Envelope, the countries largest producer of envelopes, sadly is undergoing a severe downturn in business as the world turns more toward internet solutions vs. mailing correspondence via envelopes. For the past 10 years the company has been undergoing a continual process of downsizing and this has made the atmosphere at all locations a very – more... difficult place to work unfortunately. It was a GREAT company to work for 15-25 years ago. The company IS attempting to cut back to a sustainable level, but 'cutting back' is the key. Layoffs have seen literally hundreds of jobs eliminated at all levels in just the past few months. I could not in good conscience recommend National to anyone seeking long-term employment. – less

High quality production.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Appleton, WIMay 6, 2013
Pros: good benefits, pay and coworkers
Cons: very hot
Reading detailed work order and following it to set up supplies and equipment. Next you load, run and pack product. Quality controle checks, production reports and shipping paper work needs to be done as well. The hardest part of the job is that it is very hot due to heat lamps used to dry glue very fast.

Quiet Work Environment with Close Knit Co-Workers
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Frisco, TXApril 14, 2013
Pros: great healthcare, exceptional job experience
A typical day at National included a morning meeting with the National Accounts representatives. I handled daily duties such as crediting and re-billing, along with quoting, placing orders and following up on orders in the morning. My afternoons were filled with shipping packages, delivering samples to the other representatives and finishing unfinished – more... orders. I loved how everyone was so close and we were able to celebrate live with each other. The hardest thing was leaving on my last day, when my position was eliminated. My experience with this job was extremely valuable, as I learned things with billing, order entry, different types of customer interaction, and better time management. – less

The hardest part of the job is a day – more... where thing runs very smoothly I enjoy working with my hands and fixing problems that my appear. I would have to say talking and cutting up with my co-worker is the most enjoyable part of my day. – less

A good company to work with the benefits they offer
Machine Operator (Current Employee), Scottdale, PAFebruary 23, 2013
Pros: a stable company
Cons: short breaks, they keep giving us more responsibilties after they cut our wage.
I learn a lot with this company especially about responsibility since the line I'm working at as machine operator, they call us 'the eyes of the customers', which make me trying my best to give them the best quality of our products, otherwise we'll have unsatisfied customers which could mean a loss of them.
My co-workers are like my family, after spending – more... most of the time in my day with them, going through a lot and time proves that they are there when I need them, it is safe to say they are part of my family.
Since right now we are in the transition of new managements, we have been going through a lot of changes, some are good, some are bad. Hopefully when they finally settle, it will be more enjoyable place to work again. – less
