Plenty of options for advancement, but must be willing to go the distance to prove yourself to make it higher. Most all managers and foremans are easy to get along with.

One of the better places to work in Pine Bluff as far as pay. Promotion unfair at times.
Process Specialist (Former Employee) –  Pine Bluff, ARApril 2, 2018
Better paying job in Pine Bluff, hours can be long. Certain places in the Mill are extremely hot (between 100-120 degrees). Promotion can be unfair in certain areas, but that's a long story.
Pros
Competitive pay
Cons
Long hours, mediocre health care

Long hours but great pay
Assistant Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Kalamazoo, MIFebruary 4, 2018
I excelled and was trusted by management to do basically any job at the company. From the presses to the sealers and the warehouse. Started at the Printing presses where i was a stacker. Then was cross-trained on the sealer machines. I was then relocated to the warehouse driving a fork lift, where I also earned my fork lift license. I was then put back onto the printing presses where i then advanced to a Assistant Press Operator.
Pros
Nice checks
Cons
Alot of hours worked

Stressful cut-throat workplace
Process Manager (Former Employee) –  Pine Bluff, ARNovember 6, 2017
The job was hard but due to a dysfunctional management style caused many conflicts for other people to correct. Scheduling, job descriptions are changed at the drop of a dime. Many forced overtime hours, personal conflicts with lower level supervision is swept under the rug. Work/Life balance is the worst in the United States due to the Southern Swing work schedule. reverse rotating shifts 7 on 2 off-7 on 2 off-7 on 3 off... leaves very little quality family time.
Pros
paid vacations
Cons
poorly ran departments by lazy managers

Environmental Technician in the EHS department (Current Employee) –  Canton, NCOctober 11, 2017
Work at Evergreen is fast paced, but for the area the wages are competitive and the benefits aren't bad. Most of the management are quality people. The union is terrible and promotes a sorry work ethic.
Pros
Good Pay, Good Benefits
Cons
Lack of advancement opportunities. Terrible Union

My team members are enjoyable to work with. We get along wonderfully. My experience in this department is very rewarding. I've learned quite along! The company does a lot of outside activities: family day of our choice, Christmas parties, and shirts because we have been accident free for four years.

Not allowed to leave the premises for lunch. Short breaks
