Machine Operator I-III (Former Employee), Sandston, VAOctober 10, 2014
Pros: fun activities
Cons: unprofessional leadership
While working for Sonoco, production was busy and there was always room for advancement. Management was a little unbalanced but people were able to get a fair chance. I was able to learn the importance of having strong communication skills and working together as a team. The hardest part of the job at first, was dealing with unprofessional leadership. The most enjoyable part of the job was the activities that we would do to promote things such as, safety, or PPE.

Machine Operator (Former Employee), Sandston, VAMarch 20, 2014
Pros: always opportunity to move up in positions
Cons: not a good environment to work for while building a family
I worked as a lead machine operator. The co-workers, supervsiors, and managers were great. There was always opportunity to grow thru the company. The hardest part of my job was trying to work daily to make sure bad products wont sent out of the building. I enjoyed meeting the goal daily in competition with other lines in the building as to who made produced the most.

Pros: great set schedules
Cons: work environment can sometime seem very repetitive or repetitious
Great warehouse job. Show you how to use a forklift and if you do well there is room for advancement it just may take a while. They practice safe work environment techniques everyday. Short breaks, but it's a well worth it job.

Very instering place to work.
Power department (Current Employee), Hartsville, SCNovember 26, 2013
Pros: close to home
Cons: time off and pay
Sonoco is not the place everyone thinks it is, a typical day starts out with supervisors not knowing what needs to be done for the day. next I have learned a lot of new skills since I started working for them. Work vs time home work comes out on top many times I have worked 4 to five weeks 12hrs a day with no day off.
