Productive and fun workplace with a welcoming and tightly nit group of staff.

I began my career with Bedford paper as an intern some time ago now and everyone here has been nice and made me feel as if I belong. The company offers some unseen perks that others do not. Whether it be bringing home unneeded products every now and again or Christmas bonus', they will try their best to make their staff pleased.

Pros

Holiday pay, overtime, and 401k.

Cons

High turnover

Better opportunities elsewhere

Company lacks leadership and professionalism. Little to no accountability as employees who blatantly do not follow company policies are not held accountable. Questionable quality of products was shipped out and when quality concerns were brought to the attention of upper management, they were at times overlooked and shipped anyways. Machines run out of supplies and parts. Very little training done on machine operation. Staff seems to be shrinking at all levels. There is no job security. Always wondered day to day, who was going to be next as employees seemed to be walked out without warning. Employees put in positions they should not be in.

Pros

Hours

Cons

Favoritism, poor training, job security, upper management

I enjoy coming to work

I really enjoy working with all the different people at Bedford Paper. From the owner, to office staff, to machine operators...everyone is respectfull of each other and work toward a common goal of success. They keep the plant clean, updated, and even provide meals/prizes from time to time to recognize employees working safely.

Pros

Atmosphere, pay, coworkers

Cons

Sometimes have to work longer hours during when really busy

Refreshing Change

I came from a company that had a very toxic atmosphere that made it hard to go into work each day. I was fortunate to join Bedford a few months ago, and have been very impressed with the culture. It feels like everyone is working toward the same goals, willing to help each other out, and they proactively ask people for their opinions. Happy I made the switch.

Not a good place to work.

If you belong to the "in group" you are able to stand around and do nothing while the other people pick up their slack. The management their only worry about the machines running they could careless about the employees

Not the best

High insurance costs, safety is not a first concern. Poor management. Poor communication. Very Dusty in some areas. Pay was good. Have to use your PTO if your sick.

Production floor workers

Coworkers are friendly and easy to work with. Slow paced environment. Not much room for advancement. Learned quite a bit here with great workers and management.

Glad it was a temporary job.

Bedford paper is a struggling paper company. Which made it easier for me to have a good way to work and get some hours and money in my pocket. Being that it was a temporary job it was still stressful having to makeup for such lost work. Working third shift you have to clean up everyone's slack.

Pros

Good people to work with.

Cons

Not enough money for the job you do.
