Packer (Former Employee), Dallas, TXApril 6, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short breaks
working with poly America has been beneficial to my ability to work under pressure as well as meeting up deadlines.my co-workers and I adopt fast and reliable methods to package products. The most enjoyable aspect of the job is being able to go on short breaks
and the most challenging is to meet deadline in very difficult time limit and at the shortest possible time.

Pros: lots of different equipment to work with.

Forklift Driver (Former Employee), Grand Prairie, TXJune 20, 2012
We had to work within groups of three or more to complete tasks. Everyone was very helpful and willing to do their share. I was the lead machine operator as well as driving forklifts and coordinating new employees in my section. I was also responsible for pulling my own products and moving them from one place to another within the factory. I enjoyed this job.
