Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Cheswick, PA – June 9, 2017
Typical days included the days beginning at 4 AM to 2 PM on overtime, and 5 AM to 1 PM regular hours. During my experience there, it was over time the whole duration of the summer. The management was amazingly good. They were helpful and always willing to explain and elaborate upon what was needed to be achieved. The hardest part of the job was the hours. It wasn't the usual 9-to-5 job, so a new balance of time was needed. Most enjoyable part of the job was loading and unloading trailers. This is because it kept me moving when I wasn't working on the assembly line standing in the same spot, and kept me much more active on the job. Most of the other people working there were temporary workers, with a few full time workers. It always had you meeting new people.
Amozon (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – May 31, 2017
everyone respected each other and if I needed help they were willing to help out with each other we got our work done no one playing around and our customers were pleased and happy. We were able top get promotions based on our work that we performed I loved working for them and wouldn't mind working for them again wen in tuff situations they were there to always help and if sick or a death they gave u time off with pay a very good job.
Big company moving fast to always be more productive
PROCESS CONTROLS ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Tomahawk, WI – May 8, 2017
- Meeting pretty regularly - Serve call on rotational basis - Learned a literal ton from the enormous amount of equipment at the facility - Upper management is the biggest thing holding the company back from being great
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – wallula, Washington – May 5, 2017
Micro managed workplace, rules and guide line change constantly. PCA preaches a non hostile work environment yet corporate and local senior management do not understand this concept. The workforce has seen a constant departure of managers, superintendent's and front line supervisors. Over all this company has evolved into the worst company I ever worked for.
General Utiliy (Current Employee) – Gas City, IN – May 1, 2017
Terrible work atmosphere. You pretty much live there, working 12 hours a day sometimes 6 days a week. Management makes alot of bonehead decisions that make no sense. The union is geared more towards people that have seniority. New people have no say in schedules and can be moved from shift to shift constantly. You will make good money and have decent benefits, but you will be treated like trash, to me it wasn't worth dealing with the bad attitudes that workers and management has there.
No work life balance, poorly managed, a lot of bad attitudes.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Wallula, WA 99363 – April 30, 2017
Paper making has somewhat of a reputation for being hard work and sometimes dangerous. I can attest that this is true. If you work hard and work safe and want good pay this is a good place for you. I built good relationships working hard side by side other good people. I would probably still be there if I hadn't decided to move cities.
Good hardworking people, good pay.
I dont really feel there is a short side, just know you are in for some long hours and hardwork. the reward is there if you stick with it.
Idk where to begin, management thinks they can speak to you how ever they want, treat employees like we are nothing, they basically anybody , as long as you breath you can get a job, don't train employee like they should, I guess because only a few know what they are doing. No sick days, all is a point system which everybody gets in, union sucks, agrees to managements commands, don't care if you have a family or a life, your life is PCAs !! And everybody is in everybody's business, drama drama drama, like a dam high school. Glad I no longer work there after 7 long dreadful years, rather make 8 an hour picking fruit then to work for that black hole
Fork Lift Operator (Former Employee) – Harrisonburg, VA – April 22, 2017
The days were long and the shifts rotated. I learned how to work each shift and how to do different jobs for different lines. The management worked well together. There wasn't a hard part of the job. The job itself was enjoyable.
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Colorado – April 18, 2017
Even though I cover Colorado and some of Phoenix and New Mexico it's was still manageable. I worked for the local plan in Windsor Colorado so I have a good technical support and get contact with the people there. All along I still worked out of my own home office.
Production Superintendent (Former Employee) – Edmore, MI – March 30, 2017
When PCA bought the business it became structured with more emphasis for documents and numbers. Not a bad thing. It allowed you to know where you stood against other plants in the corporation. Safety was a major concern and was proven by weekly safety briefings and meetings.
