Worst Boss ever worked for, he had no family values
Warehouse Lead/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIApril 24, 2018
Appvion hired Commanwealh too do its Warehouse and Distribution operations, along with another outside company to shuttle trucks between facilities. The Plant Manager in charge of all the operations from Commanwealth was clueless and would work people over the legal hours of service and schedule his leads for 6 12 hour day every week even though the schedule was suppose to be a 2 2 3 rotating 12 hour shift. Would not recommend this company to anyone who wants family time in the Appleton WI area
Pros
none
Cons
over 70 every week

Employees......"most valuable asset".
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  West Carrollton, OHFebruary 27, 2018
American corporate greed at it finest! 2001 ESOP purchase of company. Assured great returns on our investment! CEO " In it for the long haul " , resigned in 2005 smiling all the way to the bank. Left the employees ESOP in a sinking ship. 2012 lay off thanks to corporate greed again! We were profitable but not enough to suffice the board. Now February, 2018 bankruptcy !!!!! Stock value $ 0 !!!! We lost our life savings thanks to a smooth talking used car salesman. Don't waste your time. One day they will be a soccer complex.
Pros
Co-workers "Family"
Cons
Hard physical work

Great pay for the area, incompetence runs rampant
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Roaring Spring, PAFebruary 24, 2018
Terrible lack of competent management. Bankruptcy, sale of company, little to no concern for your wellbeing. Mistreated by managers who do not understand union labor practices. Maintenance manager has never held a tool in his life and believes machine uptime can be improved by adding more dry erase boards.

Employee owned - until it wasen't
Senior Scientist (Current Employee) –  Appleton, WIFebruary 11, 2018
You are better off getting a job on the titanic. Just wiped out all of the Employee owned stock, and most workers retirement funds because it was mismanaged into the ground.

Micromanaged at all times
Rewinder Operator (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIJanuary 11, 2018
Micromanage at all.time they treat you like you are children instead of letting you do your job. Great pay but you will work rotating shifts and long days. Management is horrible and the union is even worse. If you want a home life not the job for you. Your co workers that have been there for any length of time are extremely lazy.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Hours, management, health care
