Extrovert culture with no room for introverts
Engineering (Former Employee), Lakeville, MADecember 5, 2014
Small minded company - expect more than what your job requires and can put you at risk if you don't deliver.
No room for introvert people, out spoken people shine in this company because they lie all the time.
Lot of politics in management. senior engineers are threatened by young engineers and therefore provide no support to them.
Hardest part of the – more... job is - poor organization - no assigned job responsibilities, everybody is working on everything.

Enjoyable part is the beautiful campus, beautiful cafe, – less

Embarrassing.
General Purpose (Former Employee), Markham, WAOctober 7, 2014
Pros: it's a job.
Cons: everything else.
You will be hazed, harassed, sexually harassed, and then some. You'll see negligence on a grand scale to a point where you'll see other employees leaning against conveyors sleeping. Safety is a joke, at no point was it taken seriously by any employee besides those in a supervisor position. Everything they said about ocean spray at orientation was a – more... lie. Holding themselves to a higher standard? No. They push product at this facility to make money, and that's about it. How they haven't been shut down is the biggest question. Those who are senior to you got to that point by showing up to work, not by work competence, or a hard work ethic. They are part of a union, and use it as a way of seeing themselves as being invincible. Do NOT expect to make this job a career. If you don't have a job, and get one here, DO NOT STOP LOOKING! If you tell anyone about the problems you're having with other employees you'll be told to "keep your mouth shut, it will cause more problems for you than them anyway." – less

Co workers are great
Packaging and Filling Machine Operato (Current Employee), Allentown, PAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: free coffee paid lunch and store coming soon!
Cons: you must change everytime you leave the building no smoking allowed on property
A typical day at work when things are running great is not too bad but theirs a lot of bugs in equipment causing a lot of rework.They put you through Training classes so by the time they leave you on your own you understand the job.Management needs to work on communication.The hardest part of the job is that if you dont have much production experience – more... it might seem hard at first but they give you reading material so you can take home and look over.You'll love the excellent benefits and the quarterly bonuses an example would be I've gotten a bonus for $1000 bucks in a quarter. – less

Good place to work, but be prepared for long hours. Compensation is very fair and benefits are good. There is opportunity for advancement due to the turnover rate. The management team was excellent for my department, but not necessarily others.

people to fill these positions every week during the march to september and they cant keep people – more... more than 2 weeks...
