Pros: flexible hours, train on variety of jobs, professional leadership
Cons: sometimes you work less than 40 hours, pay is not that high
I lost my job and went to SMX to gain interim employment while I took my time finding a role in a different location and in a different role than my last positon.
I was placed with the Pringles plant in Jackson, TN and had the opportunity to train on almost all of the jobs that SMX employees did. Some of the jobs were more enjoyable than others, but I didn't mind moving around and none of the jobs were difficult. Some of them were monotonous and a bit slow-paced but work is work!
The SMX site leadership at this location treated me fairly and were responsive to any questions I had. When I requested a day off, they accommodated me without problems and were professional towards me in general.
Some of my co-workers told me that the full-time Pringles employees would talk down to them, but I never had this issue.
The only downfall of this job was when only regular orders were running at the Pringles plant, they needed fewer SMX employees and sometimes I would get less than 40 hours a week--a couple of weeks I got only 24 hours.
My experience was overall positive and I would recommend this company if you are looking for something to tide you over or if you are looking for something longer term.
