Sales Coordinator, Administrative Asst (Former Employee), Hot Springs National Park, AR – August 28, 2013
Pros: good overall job
Cons: some management
I was employed there for some time so everyone there was like family. We had a several company functions throughout the year. We had fun, but we worked as well.
Came to work of a morning, got your coffee, – more... got your messages, started answering your emails and returning phone calls. You put in sales orders, talk to customers, helped them with their questions, concerns, and ordering. You did what you had to do to get the order to make the company money within reason. I loved my job, I loved dealing with my customers - even though some days that was the hardest part of the job. Because just like you they have their bad days. Some days are great and some days are not, but you still make the best of it. – less
Damaged Can picker (Current Employee), Olive Branch, MS – August 7, 2013
Pros: friendly staff and flexibility
Cons: temporary, seasonal
This a great fortune 5k company. Many people retire and hardly ever resign from here. The job placement process is very competitive. I learned how to operate and run all the machines in this warehouse. The staff was great and helpful, management is very friendly.
Management is terrible. Your job is threatened on a daily basis. Benefit suck. Forced to work extra days with no compensation. Do not work here!!!!
Production Supervisor (Former Employee), White House, oh – June 22, 2013
I have worked many places in my 25 year career of managing people. This by far was the worse job I ever had. 8 supervisors hired in the past year and all 8 are looking for new jobs or have left already. Beware of this company!!!
Purchaser/ Supply Clerk / Lead (Former Employee), Hot Springs, AR – May 17, 2013
Pros: job security
Cons: can not think of any other then they switched my hours back to 12 hr. shifts hard on the body
When I started I worked a year at a Lining Machine. Checking for the placement on each lid, emptying and filling the hopper. Writing down what I did in the shift. Working closely with Quality Control. – more...
Once I was hired for Lining Lead, my duties moved to motivator and verifying that all 12 lines were writing down there numbers and checking for flaws. Also working with scheduling on which lids were next in line, and preparing all labels and paperwork for these jobs.
Once I became Molding Lead, Motivator and keeping machines running thru breaks, & shifts, I lead a team of 20 to 30 machines and people at a time. In the very beginning of my shift, I checked to see I had employees for shift. Also my supervisors gave me priorities to run with. check all documentation on machines for maintence, kept up with quality checks every hour and worked with my employess making boxes, getting anything they needed.
Supply Clerk, I learned how to control the inventory, in and out thru documentation which I entered daily. Ran a report of MP2 daily to see what was need to order, went ahead and ordered. Worked with The supply cordinator and Purchasing manager when we needed to limit spending.
The hardest part of the job, being thrown in with no training and sink or swim mentality.
The most enjoyable, was schedule days monday thru friday. Hours. And if you were to see someone they had a smile on there face (they needed something) :) – less

Warehouse (Current Employee), Thomaston, CT – July 26, 2012
Pros: overtime* but only due to lack of management
Cons: again.... poor performing indiviuals in higher level positions
This company is in the business for the business. All of the managers are very uneducated and inexperienced. Hopefully the sale of the business will promote good changes. But from my experience dealing with these managers will force you into making "career decisions" sooner than later
