poor Management.
Category Leader (Former Employee) –  Anderson, SCApril 11, 2019
Was hired in marketing, Salary was below average for experience level. Company is family operated and male dominated. As professional woman you will often be the only woman at the table. Culture and tech is back in the 1950s.

You will be micromanaged daily. Be careful of HR they are not your friend and will deny conversations
Pros
None

D Shift Maintenance Lead (Former Employee) –  Hazleton, PAApril 3, 2019
A manager for about every 4 workers. Always worried about production over anything. Goals are set higher than most personal will be able to obtain. By far the most management heavy company you will every work for.

It depend on your work area
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Anderson, SCFebruary 14, 2019
Very bad management, im interviewing for others jobs now. Too many bosses low moral, They lead by fear. When you put in for other jobs you are least likely to get it they would rather hire from the outside then the inside. They preach culture , but the salary people need to practice it.They constantly on your back about housekeeping, it's a paper mill it will never be up to there imaginary standards
Pros
Some of the people you work with
Cons
Managers, cultures, micromangement

Production Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Macon, GAFebruary 14, 2019
Culture is rigid with many rules. Clean environment.

Company values hourly employees and allows them to be involved in safety, process, and methods.

Building is climate controlled.

As a private company, lots of ownership involvement
Planning and Architecture Leader (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PADecember 20, 2018
The owners of the company are very actively involved in the day-to-day running of the company. This was good to see initially but later on it felt like there weren't clear guidelines of when to involve the ownership or when can decisions be made without their input. This resulted in lots of re-work when we got this wrong.


I felt that the funding process for relatively small dollar values (few 1,000's) even after being approved by a C-level person, had to also go to ownership. This was slow and non-value add.


The atmosphere in general is very family-like. The owners have done a great job to maintain the family-style culture. Colleagues at work become your close friends - helps effectiveness at work. This promoted a very upbeat work environment where there was lot of fun and laughter.
Pros
very friendly work environment, lots of jokes and laughter, great salary and benefits
Cons
Apart from learning how to work effectively with Ownership, no other cons.

First Quality Employees are the best
Manager (Former Employee) –  Anderson, SCOctober 2, 2018
My experience at First Quality was very good for the most part. The involvement of the Ownership was very impressive. The culture was good and came from the top down within the company. The company provide training, good compensation, and gym. The benefits were not as good as other places I worked for (health and 401K). The first department I worked in was very team oriented and I enjoyed going to work. The plant I worked in was like a family.
Pros
Good Compensation
Cons
Health and 401K not great

Not a decent place to work.
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  McElhattanSeptember 5, 2018
At one time First Quality was a decent place to work with competitive wages and a management and administrative staff that was honest and fair. I am not sure what has happened but it’s like a reality tv show now. If you are an adult and have a desire to work a real job and be an adult with other adults, you probably should choose somewhere else. No matter what you do here, they pull you into their ridiculousness. A fish rots from the head.
Pros
Days off during the week
Cons
Poor management, long hours, zero consistency, no integrity, undependable, mediocre wages and lack of support for all of it.

Not a bad place to work
Quality Control Technician (Former Employee) –  Lewistown, PAApril 11, 2018
Typical factory job. Full of politics and back stabbers. If not for that it would have been a great place to work. There was more than ample room for advancement. I was able to move up from a base QA Tech to a Tech 1 and then to a Tech 2 in about 4 months.

Company is building a community culture based on humanity, core philosophies and team work. It is fast paced and customer focused. Management works to ensure we provide the best product possible. Most enjoyable part is working with the team members.

Poor company to work for
Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PADecember 24, 2017
This company is the worst company a person can work for. The culture is fake and not friendly at all. Everyone stabs you in the back and managers are horrible. Extremely poor communication and training opportunities.

Culture and management horrible
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Anderson, SCOctober 11, 2017
Do yourself a favor and don't work for first quality print and packaging. The only people that matter to the new plant operations manager and the other one that was demoted back to QA manger are people who kiss their butts. This is the culture of people they want and get jobs made up to make them feel special. These are the people that are making more money and the people who bust their butts and work get screwed. The management as a whole is awful and do not know how to treat people. It is an awful environment to work in and I for one will never recommend anyone to work for them. The management backgrounds are from automotive and they know nothing about print and packaging and it shows on a daily basis. The turnover is bad and will continue to be with the management they have. If you like being screwed and not appreciated then work for this company, but don't say you was not warned
Pros
Some good people
Cons
Bad management and a lot of butt kissing
