Winpak Corp.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Pekin, ILFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: great benefits
Cons: standing in one spot for hours at times
The job was good and the benefits were great. The hardest part of job would be when machines broke down and for the most part job was fairly easy. The co-workers all got along fairly well and I enjoyed the work atmosphere.

Utility (Former Employee), Pekin, ILJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: it's a job
Cons: everything about it once you're there for a short while.
Saw someone post about how they almost seem to enjoy to see you fail, I would have to agree. I am a very hard, reliable, trustworthy worker. I have been told that throughout my 27 years of existence. They trained me for a week straight on pulling stock, I had it down. Of course there would be days where you fall behind, it is a demanding position pulling stock. Instead of trying to be understanding, especially since they JUST fired 2 people, nah let's just demoralize you. They then trained me on the floor and the training was extremely bad. I mean like, wow. Along with working the floor and the other 500 responsibilities they expect of you there are so many side jobs that you barely get any experience doing. I hope you can grow another set of hands. So if you get stuck on something you have no idea how to do because of lack of training, and all your team is busy, good luck keeping this job. When let go the 2nd shift supervisor LIED, saying I had done things that I know for a fact I did not do. Could she prove it? Naw. Could I? Nope. I was just starting to get the entire job down 100% and enjoy it more when I was called in and let go over petty things that literally never happened. I was the 3rd person to be fired from Winpak is less than 2 weeks. So my honest opinion? Blow off this company, and 2nd shift, and how they go about everything. Not to mention how much they take out of your checks. Like for real? Anyways, you can DEFINITELY find a better place to work, that will pay just as much if not better, and not expect you to be an octopus. Welp, thanks for the unemployment Winpak. And thanks for teaching me how some companies just plain suck, but have a wonderful sugar-coating.

pay is high but not enough for dealing with all the bullcrap.
laborer (Former Employee), PekinOctober 19, 2014
Pros: pros? umm you get paid decently
Cons: cons? half the pay gets taken in union dues and other expenses.
Management is power hungry.

Supervisors play games with the new employees and seem to enjoy watching them fail.

Do not quit a decent job to come work here.

On the job training is great, if you like to be trained by someone whom themselves were trained about 3 months prior with absolutely no idea what they are doing.

Expect to be held to the exact same standards as those who have been their 10+ years. Also no human error is allowed.

Management cant even stand to be there, hence the fact you are reading a help wanted add.

If your homeless or have no other options, then by all means take your chances at this facility. I personally would rather taking my chances on surviving a jump off the top of the building head first.

Awful pay and management don't care
Press operator (do everything) (Former Employee), Senoia, GAApril 26, 2014
Cons: everything
Everyone's constantly trying to leave. Upper management doesn't care about anyone. High turnover rate. Lie to get you there then abuse your generosity without even a thank you. Will not advance and reviews are awful. Can't even afford health insurance working here. Management plays stupid. Don't ask for anything once your employed even everyday supplies bc management does whatever they have to to come under budget. They get bonuses for making under budget. At your expense. Don't work here. Any job is better.
