Warehouse/ Logistics Manger (Former Employee) – Shreveport, LA – October 26, 2017
I started as a press operator and worked my way to warehouse supervisor. I enjoyed opening up every day and getting the warehouse ready for my associates. We were a small crew and worked well together. My manager in all accounts turned me loose and allowed me to run the warehouse my way. Hardest part of the job was being told our plant was closing. Most enjoyable part of my job was working with most of the associates and traveling for Printpack.
Monthly lunches provided by HR
Skeleton crew...having to cover for absent or vactioning associates.
Poor place to work, can work better and happier digging a ditch.
Inspector (Former Employee) – Marshall, NC – September 22, 2017
Plant had way too many of one specific race, didn't matter if it was an operator to a supervisor, it was strictly one race. In my opinion very discriminatory. Pay is extremely low and will not work with personal issues. One-sided job for sure. Wouldn't recommend working here ever.
Blown Films Operator Assistant (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – September 2, 2017
I have had no problems while working at Printpack. They work with you so that you can learn how to run the different kinds of machines that they run. They don't pressure you, they work with you to learn all you want to learn.
moniter and operate a castline estrusion line.i learned use a cmr (controll moniter remote) and also troubleshoot quality and process issues. the culture was family like and still many friends that sill work there. I guess the hardest part of the job was shift work which was'nt that bad. I really enjoyed the trouble shooting part of the job.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Shreveport – August 15, 2017
A typical day is very busy so you won't be bored. The best part of the job was communicating with a variety of customers all over the country and developing good working relationships based on trust and providing accurate information to them.
Mechanical Engineer III (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 2, 2017
Good pay, not so good work life balance, do not expect growth unless you are with the company for a long term. Result oriented people do not fit in this mediocre workforce. Good ol' boys management. Sloppy results are OK so long you can advertise your smallest achievement and amplify them 100 times.
ROLL PACKER (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – July 13, 2017
A typical night of work consisted of 12 hour shifts from 7pm to 7am. I learned a lot about production at Printpack. Management is good. The culture is very diverse. Hardest part of the job was working 12 hour shifts. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with helpful coworkers
Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 16, 2017

Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – April 20, 2017
in 47 years of working, Printpack Inc was the best overall company. they have an education department where you can take college classes on line at no cost. they had ,at that time 28 locations world wide but treated everyone as family When my wife died in 1997 the company was unbelievable in support and gave me permission to put their logo on her headstone I will always treasure the love and support I received there.
4 types of bonuses for working smart company outings like a big family permote from within
Maintenance Mechanic/Electrician (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – April 6, 2017
Plant manager would fabricate things to get you out the door if he did not like you. Took the issue I had with him to corporate HR and they backed him 100 percent after telling me they had an open door policy. He went from maintenance to running the location I was at . I would not recommend this place to anyone, he started trying to get me out the door when I got deathly sick and was out for a month. Took pictures of conduit with wire coming out of it and said I told them the job was done.
Graphics (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 8, 2017
I worked in the corporate office. The culture was very conservative, Christian and yes, corporate. If you fit in with those guidelines, you were golden, which is why associates either stayed their entire careers or moved on in a couple years. I never felt like I "belonged", but I stuck it out several years because the pay, benefits and perks were all pretty fair. They do seem to really care about their associates and have a great wellness incentive program to encourage people to stay healthy. Overall, it can be a good place for the right person to work.
Ink Technician (Former Employee) – Hazelwood, MO – December 6, 2016
I would start my day by checking the presses to ensure that they had a sufficient supply of ink, if not then I would make more ink from formulas, and adjust the color accordingly. Then I would check the upcoming press schedules and organize my day to lay out the necessary inks that would be required next. Management was friendly and supportive. The hardest part of my job was moving the 55 gal. drums of ink back and forth from the ink room to the presses, some of which weighed up to 540 lbs. The greatest part of my job was the people I worked with
Press Operator (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – October 13, 2016
Worked at this place for little bit over two years yet never met the plant manager until they got a new one. Upper management never cared for the night shift workers except for the numbers we ran on the presses. Bonus chances and raise opportunities were dang near impossible to reach as far as the highest rate of increase was only 2%. Pay was not fairly distributed amongst everyone as well thats the reasoning for me leaving the company.
It was a great place to work. Enjoyed the people I worked with.
Receptionist Secretary (Former Employee) – Williamsburg, VA – August 7, 2016
Answered incoming calls, received visitors, sorted and distributed mail. I learned a lot about Human Resources, and insurance benefits. Most of the management were great and treated me nicely. Got along great with my co-workers. The hardest part of my job was being passed over for promotions that I was qualified for, and being told I was too good at what I do and they didn't want to lose me. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people and helping them.
The new things that I learned and to perservere reqardless of what I am told.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Wisconsin – July 27, 2016
The job itself is not bad. You will work with some great people and some not so good. If you work in production you will more than likely work on a 3/2 12 hour shift schedule. Work days get long but the extra days off are nice. Short staffing issues occasionally cause mandatory overtime. Some like it some don't. The pay is very good, you will be compensated commensurate with your skills and work ethic. Work your way up! Management has a tendency to be a little out of touch and there are some members of management who don't belong in their position. I would say management is the biggest reason there is any turn over at all really. Overall a good place to work if you are looking for good pay and decent benefits.
Low cost lunch, good pay.
No outdoor break area, no radios, cannot leave facility during shift.
