Corrugator Supervisor (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – June 18, 2014
My day generally consisted of finding a way to make happen everything that needed to be accomplished no matter what the obstacles were in front of me. I quickly learned how to become the type of person to always make it happen. I was well respected and worked well with my piers. The hardest part of the job was accepting second place when the time came. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was watching the machine, crew and plant develop into something to be proud of. – less
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee), Latta, SC – May 25, 2014
My typical day at work was repairing equipment, filling out paper work, answering calls on floor, ect. I learned how to work on equipment and learn the basic operation of equipment. My co workers were great to work with. The hardest part of my job was trying to observe so much in a short amount of time. The most enjoyable part was when we got the equipment – more... back up and running and didnt have any break downs. – less

Die Cutter (Former Employee), Tulare, CA – March 24, 2014
Pros: every month they had free lunch if no safety rules were not broken.
Cons: you had to work through your breaks sometimes to get the job done.
RockTenn was a very good place to work. I started at the bottom and eventually worked my way to operating the die cutter which I was responsible for cuts on the box to make sure they were folding correctly. It was a pretty small company of about 100 people I enjoyed my co-workers it was a team player enviroment.
