Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IN – August 9, 2014
I enjoy the people I work with on the day to day basis.The amount of overtime worked leaves very little time to spend with family.Seems to be a lack of communication from management to employee.Unorganized at times.Not really any room for the common employee to advance any higher.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Dayton, OH – June 10, 2013
Pros: management encouraged me to be successful, a place where they will teach you many skills that are highly useful elsewhere.
Cons: only con i have is i was laid off.
Everyday we had a list of customers that we would make corrugated boxes for. I worked on a machine called a Flexo/Gluer" (Made by EMBA). I started out as a stacker, stacking bundles of boxes and then was moved to feeder, where I would feed raw corrugate into the machine. Next as we hired in temps, I would drive the fork truck and keep the team supplied – more... with raw material, or unload trailers. It was a fun job. – less

I worked for Welch about 8 years ago. They bought the company I worked for and I can admit I had a chip on my shoulder the entire time I was there. Looking back I could not see the forest through the tree's and the opportunity that lay in front of me. They may be a smaller company but they are growing and trying to be better at everything they do. I – more... left to take a job a much larger corporation thinking I would have a better chance moving up in my career. Since then the guy I trained has moved on to a supervisor and is not a production manage making nearly double what I made at the larger company. He recently asked me to consider taking a job at his plant and I accepted it a couple days ago. The team in place at the Indy plant seems like a great group of people and I look forward to being able to provide them with a more mature and quality employee than I was in the past. My goal is to impress and advance, something not possible where I am leaving. Great workers have great opportunity at Welch. – less

My day ranged from stapling boxes and lids to training new employees. The people I worked with and for were fun to be with and always willing to work together too discover new and better ways to make our product.
