Driver (Former Employee) – Lancaster, NY – June 2, 2015
During the later days of my time at Norampac I felt as if the drivers didnt matter as the writing was on the wall that we would be replaced with an outside carrier which did happen and Normapac didnt allow the carrier to talk to or hire any of the drivers that were familiar with the routes.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Maspeth, NY – December 12, 2014
Worked as Customer Service Mgr. Managing 5 CSR handling 450 customers. Worked with planning and production to make certain that all customers received their boxes on time. I had been in the box manufacturing business for many years, but had worked in NJ, LA, MI and I learned that the NY market is so very different than any I had worked in before. Very competitive. Norampac is a Canadian company and management was different from any I had ever encountered. Had some very good co-workers, friendly and helpful. The most challenging part of my job was working with production. Their objectives were to get boxes through the plant while my was to get our customer their orders on time. Both objectives sometime collided. The most enjoyable part of the job was when we were able to accommodate customers in emergency situations. I enjoyed speaking with and working with the customers in order to satisfy them.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Thompson, CT – October 6, 2013
I would go in, have my orders given too me for the day, organize my work load according to when it needed too be out on the truck, when I finished my job I would then go to a supervisor and then start training on something new, worked with a lot of good people, I'm a team player and always looking for something new to learn to progress in the company, the hardest thing that I feel about a job is not being able to keep busy, the most enjoyable part of the job is when I'm kept busy and before you know it, it's time to clock out.
Never given a chance, no help or cooperation from sups or entrenced club members, if your family did not get you in it will be a rough ride. If this is your ONLY oppurtunity take it but plan on moving on its not a place for new techs, lots of turf protection and no union so be ready to be aggravated when you get home to the family. Safety is not an option if you want to keep working there its a 100 year old factory, techs who are there will man new plant. Bailed for better job less pay.
