Can be very stressful at times, but the work is fairly easy
Polymer "B" Class Operator (Current Employee) –  Chester, VASeptember 26, 2018
The company was previously known as Honeywell. They then spinned it off onto a stand alone company known as Advansix. When they changed the name everything else changed with it. The moral is kinda low now.
Pros
The pay
Cons
Everything else

Only good thing is the pay.
C Class Operator (Current Employee) –  Chester, VASeptember 15, 2018
Has good pay, however its rotating swing shift with mandatory overtime. Bad health insurance that is extremely expensive and covers NOTHING. Too cheap to fix problems, wait for the little issues to make BIG issues then blame everyone but themselves for it not getting fixed earlier. Always short staffed.

It is good pay, and you do get paid weekly so at least there's that.

Strong, Fast, Continual Growth Strategy
First Line Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Chester, VASeptember 5, 2018
Quite a bit of rapid changes, & extremely high turnover rates as a result.

Company is striving for excellence at a rate that is causing some good, long and short term employees to leave the company willing and or unwilling..

In recent months, several or more new hires in salaried positions have quit within 3-6 weeks.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Job security

Company is in a deep hole
Senior Chemist (Current Employee) –  Chesterfield, VAAugust 21, 2018
Following the separation from Honeywell there is a great deal of unfinished work. Production sites are underresourced and significant maintenance and upgrades were ignored for years. Solid business and profit potential once they phase out the legacy management that got them in this bind.
Cons
24/7 oncall, IT is nonfunctional, outdated chemical processing equipment

QCL Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Frankford PAMarch 9, 2018
Lab, chemist, however, may have limited opportunity to grow.
Safety, Quality Delivery, Inventory & Cost is the main matrices used to set the daily goal and the use of RPS tools help to return the situation to standard.Our daily tier meeting system is very effective and help to meet set targets for the day, week and month.
Leadership in the union environment may be stuff however we always find a common ground to complete our jobs daily.
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
Frequest breaks.

Still trying to break free of Honeywell
Employee (Current Employee) –  VirginiaDecember 6, 2017
AdvanSix came about from the Spin-off of the Resins and Chemicals division of Honeywell. Post spin the company has tried to return to the operating culture of the pre Honeywell day of Allied Signal. The problem is that most of the management that wants to return to the "good old days" didn't actually work for Allied Signal during those days and can't seem to shake off their Honeywell ways.

Excellent Job Pay, Swing Shift
Winder Operator (Former Employee) –  Pottsville, PAJanuary 30, 2017
Excellent job pay. Health benefits have a high deductible. Swing shift is terrible. Floor employees attitudes are sub par. Administration is top notch, beside the fact of it being slow. Extremely safety oriented. Overall i would say it is one of the best factories to work in Schuylkill County.
Pros
Excellent Pay
Cons
Swing Shift, Lack of breaks.
