Package Handler/ Forklift driver (Former Employee) – Houma, LA – September 18, 2017
A typical day at work was nice. I learned many things. I made packages for offshore supplies and what they needed on a daily basis. I enjoyed my job very much and would still be there had I not been laid off.
Management is driving this company into the ground.
Extruder Line Operator (Current Employee) – Hanover, PA – September 13, 2017
The machinery is so out of date they cannot repair it, nor are they even attempting to. Constantly run out of parts and supplies, just this week we ran out of resin to extrude. No accountability whatsoever. The list is endless as to why they will never fill these positions.
Technical Support (Former Employee) – Morristown, TN – September 13, 2017
Good place to work, as long as you are willing to work hard. The production is fast paced, and the work requires a challenging to develop skill set. If you are willing to learn while working hard, the people are friendly and the pay is good.
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Batavia, IL – August 31, 2017
the environment is great, management is very reasonable, the speed was a bit too fast for me, but the work was easy to grasp and understand, generally it was a great place too work, I just couldn't keep up with the overtime.
Line Coordinator (Former Employee) – Rural Hall, NC – August 29, 2017
The problem with Sonoco Display and Packaging is that they care nothing for the temporary line workers that work at the plant. In addition there is heavy favoritism for a specific couple people and anyone who doesn't agree with every word the managers have to say is wrong. There is no reward for a job well done, I spent over a year with them, did some specialized work for them and as soon as that was done I got told by my temp agency that they had canceled my contract.
Awful management, company is rapidly losing business.
I was given my first promotion within a year and a half of working here. I really enjoy the people and enjoy that the company does seem to legitimately care about there employees. The days safe record at the plant I work in is unreal at almost 1000 days safe. I really enjoy my job and feel as though I have plenty of room to grow in this company.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hartselle, AL 35640 – August 28, 2017
This was a good company to get started with but over the years I had work extremely hard (because I am a female) to work my way up. They pay was alright but getting anymore pay would require more abilites and these abilites were not offered. This is a very stressful place to work and alot of hours.
Job could be challenging, culture and management destroy the atmosphere
Prepress (Current Employee) – Charlotte/Cincinnati/Mexico – August 24, 2017
If you like being involved with Cliques, you will be rewarded. Simply working hard and doing your job helping out others will get you no where with this company. Focus is on anything but work and standards of accountability only apply to those who are outside the clique.
Management is slow to act and not open and receptive to employees when they speak up about issues and desires to grow.
The hardest part of the job is tolerating many that don't do their job, Management being passive to issues and getting no support from management. This creates unneeded stress and frustration making it difficult to perform the job. Worst of all management is not honest and forthcoming. Management is divided and not consistent.
The enjoyable part of the job is the work itself. Remove all the redcap and bad structure and the job is rather fun and challenging. Micromanagement and red tape kill most of that.
Pay and if you are in a clique... you can do whatever you want. Including sleeping at your desk.
Cliques, passive management. Micro management, lack of real accountability.
