I enjoyed the variety of jobs that were available. I learned a lot from my coworkers that had a lot more experience. My immediate supervisor and human resources were very nice people to associate with.
Quality Control Technician (Current Employee) – Randleman, NC – June 29, 2018
Not a bad place to work. The people are very nice and always willing to help. Interact with the shift to shift daily issues during shift change.Management is always friendly and treat all the employees with respect.
Intermediate finsher (Former Employee) – Austell, GA – May 26, 2018
No breaks whatsoever. You have NO family life. They expect you to work 24 hours a day all the time. Although I was terminated for disobeying company policy, if i had to live in a box or my truck, or go back to work there. It would be live in a box. Wouldn’t recommend anybody work for Caraustar mill
Production (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 15, 2018
I worked at this company for 4 years. Management is full of empty promises and they will only speak to you if you get hurt, only to make it seem like it was your fault. If you have an issue don't bother to being it up they truly don't care. The pay was ok but there was barely any time for my family. I regret staying in this company for that long.
Operator/Part Packer (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – March 1, 2018
Was hired to run the fork truck and I wasn't trained properly and didn't feel comfortable from the get go there. Only had two weeks to learn the ins and outs of the shipping routine there and it was a crammed out of order facility. I was demoted to the packing line and it was a union job so when a scab like me came in and ran fork truck right away people didn't care for me or there boss all that much, but was there everyday and I worked hard for them regardless.
Scale Operator (Former Employee) – Austell, GA – February 16, 2018
I received 0 to no training on dangerous equipment. Management treats you like an animal, no lunch breaks or anything. If the relief man calls out it is mandatory you stay. That’s about 17 hours without a break. Safety is a big concern while working there. It’s very high risk.
Pay and overtime
Negativity from co workers and terrible management
Operator/Laborer (Current Employee) – Waynesville, NC – December 23, 2017
You work 12 hours a day with no breaks at all. Heavy lifting the whole time you are there and management will not give you a break. They have old and unsafe machines. Would not recommend working there to my worst enemy.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Bay Minette, AL – September 7, 2017
Need new office people. Not caring about you getting a raise for what you qualified of doing. Talk to you any kind of way. Want you to work hard and get no production pay. Only office people get bonus not worker. Not bad work just to much descrimination and etc. If it had equal oppunity for all not some. Along with new managers would be an enviroment to work for.
