Production Technician
Production Technician I (Former Employee), Concord, NCAugust 7, 2014
Pros: great pay, great benefits
As a team leader, I started out the day with a meeting to answer questions and to give information. I learned a lot about the tobacco business. Most of my coworkers were nice and were team players. The hardest part of the job was sometimes getting forced to work over without notice. The most enjoyable part was that the company would acknowledge it's – more... workers by having bonuses, parties, and great pay with outstanding benefits. I really enjoyed working for this company. I would still be there if they hadn't closed. – less

Enjoyed each territory assignment. Company supportive to employees and made every effort to assist sales representative in the field.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Tupelo, MSJune 16, 2014
Pros: district meetings, selling a new display contract and selling in product
Cons: cancelling a contract.
Each week's route was planned the previous week, so goals were set according to accounts visited that week. I learned to be organized and prepared for any questions regarding product or promotions. Working with my team was the best part of the position. Each co-worker had something to share that could benefit another in their territory. It was an encouraging – more... environment. The hardest part of the job was finding a contract not honored in a store and having to explain the benefits of keeping display filled so contract would not be cancelled. The most enjoyable part of the job was working a territory of about 115 accounts and accomplishing set goals for the month. Seeing POP signage was a plus too. – less

Newly manufactured product and equipment
Process Technician (Former Employee), Williamsburg, VAMarch 23, 2014
Pros: seeing a new product go to the test market for the first time.
Cons: drive thru the hrbt to williamsburg. gas prices were at an all time high.
Operated and maintained new state of the art manufacturing equipment. Learned to right procedures for equipment such as start up and change over, lock out and tag out, and shutdown. Produced a product called SNUS. A spitless tobacco product that was to be used when smokers could not light up. Management made it fun because off the new product, new facility, – more... and new cafeteria. Everyone took turns on learning new equipment as the goal was for everyone to be able to run all aspects of the machinery. The hardest part was paving the way thru trial and error as this product and one of a kind equipment was new to everyone. – less

First tobacco company
SAP Training Consultant (Former Employee), Richmond, VADecember 18, 2013
Pros: continue to learn about sap - on every project there is something new.
Cons: smoking at work. lack of experienced training lead.
At first, PM allowed people to smoke at their work desk, but during the time on the project, this was discontinued. Hooray!
Partner managers were somewhat inexperienced, providing additional roadblocks to development of training materials.
Had to complain about the lack of development of training data in the training client, which was not received well – more... by the training lead - but the training did suffer as a result.
Live and learn! – less

Awesome and fulfilling place to work.
MTI Operation & Technology/Material Handler (Former Employee), Concord, NCOctober 4, 2013
Pros: holidays, cafeteria, bonuses, team building getaways
Cons: the job closing.
Philip Morris USA was the epitome of a fine tuned machine. From the door to the work area, everything was precise and run smoothly. Management was professional, courteous, kind, never forgetting the ultimate, goal of producing quality tobacco products. My co-workers were like family. We laughed together, cried together, and we all, I am sure, share – more... timeless memories of one another. They were helpful, and made sure if you were a new comer, that you knew your job. The hardest part of my job was watching the plant close and have to witness a job which funded a community shut it's doors for the final time. The most enjoyable aspect of working this job was learning the many details of the cigarette manufacturing business as well as the in and outs of maintaining a safe working environment which was PM USA's number one goal. – less

A/C Operator (Current Employee), Richmond, VAJuly 12, 2013
Pros: the pay scale is nice and the atmosphere is pleasant.
Cons: the hours required to work is not something i had originally planned.

Excellent opportunity to showcase my ability to lead a group!
Senior Operations Manager (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCMay 22, 2013
Management was always available to help if I needed assistance with any problem. Co-workers were easy to get together for projects and deadlines. I most enjoyed the opportunity to travel and the mentors from upper management. A typical day at work included contacting a retail store and learning what tobacco products were selling and if we need to increase/decrease – more... the shipment of new product, then I would call the truck distributors to confirm the shipment of product and the displays of our product at each store. – less

As a large company, they had many standards that were easy to follow on a daily basis and learned the principles of how to work as a team in a maintenance and union surroundings.Toughest part of the job was to overcome the strict etiquette of approaching each level of management.

A good start...
Territory Sales Manager (Former Employee), Bedminster, NJApril 7, 2013
This was my first job out of college. It was a great learning experience. I learned quite a bit in terms of selling, contract negotiation and customer service. Philip Morris does invest quite a bit of time and money in properly training its employees. My growing disapproval with the company's overall product and beliefs as well as the opportunity to – more... own my own business prompted me to leave. – less
