very fast pace place with great advancement opportunities.
Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) –  Vernon Hills, ILJanuary 20, 2016
Arrive at a customers plant and be prepared to maintain and rebuild their equipment on a set schedule.

You are your own manager at the job sites. Be prepared for any challenge that comes you way.

worker (Former Employee) –  Winsted, MNOctober 21, 2015
This place promotes by tattle tales, working hard and knowledge is not good enough for Tetra Pak. If you like to suck up to management and not want advancement this is the place for you.

Has been a good place to work but I am looking for more.
Senior Process Engineer (Current Employee) –  Winsted, MNDecember 1, 2014
Tetra Pak has very good benefits and compensation. However, currently it has become somewhat repetitive and less challenging. In addition, I currently work from my home in Columbus Ohio. The company has asked that I move to the Minneapolis area. I have a son who is a sophomore in high school and I do not wish to do this.

Currently they are undergoing a major re-structuring and this has become somewhat challenging. In fact, I would say that this has become the hardest part of the job.

My typical day involves working with systems for processing cheese. The systems are mostly limited to cheese. My responsibilities include but are not limited to the sizing and specifying of equipment, creating and modifying P&IDs, managing installations, and handling the process portion of start-ups.
Pros
working from home
Cons
re-structuring

Good old boy in, Everyone else watch out!
FIRST PRINTING OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Denton, TXSeptember 10, 2014
Mandatory weekends and overtime, No Support, It is basically a Prison camp mentality where production workers swipe a badge to get into the DUNGEON and the office workers who outnumber production at least 5 to 1 don't have to swipe anything. On top of all that, A couple of the key management positions has created a cut throat production environment where they reward ($25..00) gift cards to downstream processes for spotting defects, But will not back up certain employees from the upstream process if you're not a good old boy or a backstabber...................... TERRIBLE CULTURE !!!

Not all the Management is bad 2nd shift supervisor is a stand up guy, But the first and third shift managers are terrible along with the process manager. Plant Manager is a puppet and listens to anything the process manager says. HR is not there for you, HR is a Puppet to these people also..

TOO BAD because there is good people there and they have to deal with a certain few (good old boy) operators stabbing them in the back because they cant do the job.... and they get away with it...

No doubt that A CULTURE CHANGE would help this place operate so much more smoothly and it would completely boost the Quality of the product and benefit the overall production output!

WCM = WE CANT MANAGE!
Pros
co workers
Cons
short breaks, management.

Terrible work environment. mgmt is worst.
Printing Operator (Former Employee) –  Denton, TXOctober 12, 2013
Tetra Pak is an excellent co. Unfortunately management at the Denton, Tx plant is so bad they have destroyed the culture. New plant mgr has not done a days labor in his life . The prod.mgr is a lying snake and besides for 1 supervisor who is a real person and a honest supervisor . the rest of the office (which almost outnumbers production employees) is useless ...Bad( terrible ) Management from top to bottom. Don't waste your time unless you are an A** Kisser and like the good ole boy system. Guaranteed night shift for first 5-10 yrs at least...slave labor with a stopwatch....They have a lunch room only for day shift....vending machines for the rest...BAD...BAD ...BAD...AND MORE BAD!
IT'S TOO BAD, COULD BE AN AWESOME PLACE TO WORK . BUT IT ISNT......
Pros
8 hr shifts, paid once a week.
Cons
bad management, the night shift w/no food. no support...
