Overall Dart is a great place to work. I would recommend Dart Container to all of my friends as a great place to work. A job where you're on your feet all day.

Human Resources Generalist (Current Employee) –  Leola, PASeptember 16, 2018
Overall the location that I work in works hard to take care of employees within company policy.

The best part about my job is the interactions I have with my employees.

Great Company but Strict
Inspector/Packer (Current Employee) –  Mason, MISeptember 13, 2018
I currently work here. Being an I.P. can be stressful at first but once you get the hang of what you're doing its pretty laid back and easy as long as you don't stress over little things.
The work area can get hot or cold depending on the time of year and where you're at in the building. You will be walking or standing in one spot for a very long time during your shift. You will be getting a 10 Min break after every 2 hours you work, besides your lunch is a 20. On very hot days sometimes management extends each break by 5 mins.
The pay is very decent for the work you're required to do. Majority of the time its just making boxes for 8 hours and the line does the rest of the job.
You get paid Vacation, 3 personal days, and 401k and awesome health benefits!
One draw back on this position is the hours can be long, you may have to work overtime that is mandatory, and the point system in affect is not very disability friendly... so if you have to have doctor appointments I recommend Afternoons/Midnight shift til you have a year in to get FMLA...
Pros
Great pay, lots of jobs to move up to, Vacation, 401k, Health Plans
Cons
Short Breaks, Hot/Cold Temp, Management...

Associate Cost Analyst (Current Employee) –  Mason, MISeptember 4, 2018
Not much room for advancement. Upper management has been there 20+ years and are just waiting to retire. Nobody can move up until they leave. Analysts work ridiculous hours during PCA and then are "rewarded" with a $75 bonus and a half day off work upon completion... The yearly PCA project is at least 6 months long and requires hundreds of overtime hours. Hooray for salary so all those extra hours don't mean jack. Pay raises are generally less than 3% each year until they decide you're so under-paid that you have to get a bump because you're below market value... Family owned business keeps it's money in the family. One strategic goal is to increase sales by $1 BILLION by 2021. You think that would mean some meaningful raises at least for salaried employees... nope. It's all just to pad Dart's pockets and go into their further ownership in the Caribbean...
Pros
job security
Cons
low pay, no raises, no chance for advancement

Parts Selector (Former Employee) –  Mason, MISeptember 1, 2018
Not a bad place to work if you don't mind working at a huge place and don't mind feeling like just a number. Treated fairly and the work is fairly straight forward and they don't expect more than one can produce.

BUSINESS PROCESS ADMINISTRATOR (Current Employee) –  Mason, MIAugust 27, 2018
I've learned a great deal about how the company operates and the processes used on a day to day bases. However, new skills didn't come from the workplace. The tasks are frequently mundane and don't allow a creative mind much room to explore.

Great place for the hard working
Inspector Packer (Current Employee) –  Leola, PAAugust 25, 2018
It's a good job with great pay and benefits. Staff is friendly, but remember it's a big corp., they don't work well with special circumstances. There is no flexibility. If you come to work and do your job all will be well. Working in production is hot, fast and sometimes challenging. The more you do it the easier it gets!
Pros
Yearly raises, bonuses, company picnics, holiday meals, overtime if you like that sort of thing
Cons
Point system, no flexibility, mandatory overtime(but not all the time)

Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Horse Cave, KYAugust 24, 2018
Never has been mandatory overtime. But they cut overtime completely out at one point. A machine Operator there is more like a little duty maintenance man.
