Worker (Former Employee) – Dudley, NC – March 17, 2019
The location I worked had a good old boy network that did not allow minorities and women truly advance. Even though there are a few in management roles many of them had to file complaints to corporate to get them

Receiving Manager (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – March 15, 2019
I would recommend Georgia Pacific to any that needs a job. Everyone at the plant I worked all worked well together. Management always has an open door policy and were a great bunch of people to work with.
there is no way to advance. No team work at all. The team leaders don't have any lack of commucation unless the line stop then they want to know why. They don't want to hear ideas of how things will operate more smoothly and safe instead just get the work done.

Offbearer (Current Employee) – Dudley, NC – March 12, 2019
The management is toxic. The demand to work your days off is out of control - literally no work life balance. The environment is strict and you’ll feel no job security because at any time they can find anything wrong
Reliability Technician (Current Employee) – Rincon, GA – March 11, 2019
At Georgia Pacific, you work a swing shift so each new work block you either on nights or days and the next block you on the other. It's hard to get used to a sleep pattern but you also get 7 straight days off every month (unless working over time) and you only work 14 days a month (unless working overtime). Nights and the weekends are usually very laid back with out all the management there. There is a lot of management personal (a lot of chiefs and not many Indians). When your at work, you have a machine to run and in some departments you work with multiple people on a line. Some shifts are good when the machine runs good. Other days a stressful when the machine is acting a fool. But that is expected when working with equipment. In my job, there's always something to learn and always someone you can help and teach. The hardest part to me is the swing shift, trying to get your body adapted to switching sleeping patterns and the fact that I'm not home with my wife and kids every night. My job I feel like is underpaid due to there is more responsibility than just an operator and with all these new jobs coming to the area paying close to the same thing not working swing shift makes it hard for them to keep people. Health insurance sucks, but the dental vision are great. Have the opportunity to invest in a 401K and the company invest some too. There are advancement opportunities and a lot of money can be made there depending on what you want for a career. If you like overtime, there is usually always a need for it (also depends on which department your in). As far as the peoplemore... are concerned, there are good and bad just like in any other job.less
It was a great place to work but management closed the plant and moved the business to southern United States. Over 500 employees lost their jobs. Don't know what you want me to say to make this accept this review. We ALL lost our jobs.
Good hard working people.
4 12 hour shifts per week one week 5 12 hour shifts next week
depending on the shift that you're working, the job is easy but management makes it difficult at times. Stressful on day shift because there are many bosses and head people. Graveyard is a pretty much laid back shift that requires a lot of people to operate.
Manager, Business Development and Customer Service (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 9, 2019
Day started at 7:30 a.m. and could go on till 7pm , Then long drive home - this is Atlanta. But I learned an enormous amount from working in this corporate environment and the abilities afforded me to work hard and autonomously. Stressful but worth it. Company paid very well.
