Good place if you bow down to superiors
Bag line operator (Former Employee) –  Jerome County, IDSeptember 25, 2018
After my initial training on the machines, I was thrown into things I wasn't taught. Supervisors hang in ac and dont do a thing. They expect you to know how to do things never shown then talk down to you like you're stupid. I finally had it with my line supervisor and quit after chasing him to knock his teeth out. Horrible place. On top you have to switch from days to night every other month.
Pros
They pay
Cons
The company exusys

Bag Operator (Former Employee) –  North Vernon, INSeptember 13, 2018
12 Hour Shifts.Dirtiest Place I ever worked.If you happen to be a Female,and have all the right junk in all the right places,your treated like a VIP.If you happen to be a Male,and a hard worker..they see you coming a mile away and take advantage,expecting you to do the work of the line,cover for the lazies,and cover for the "Hot" Females that happen to be shmoozing w/leads/engineers/lower mngt,or they wander off to the bathroom every hour.This place is a joke.Don't waste your time if your a hard working Male age 21-45.
Pros
Nothing if your a hard working middle aged Male
Cons
Everything

Productive, Busy from the moment you get in the building
Cell Leader (Former Employee) –  Shawano, WIAugust 6, 2018
A typical day starts when you enter the break room and receive your schedule of where you will be placed to work. If you're a cell leader you arrive at 4 o'clock ahead of machine operators to begin with your day. Depending on how well the shift before you did, as far as production numbers, cleanliness and preparation will define how well your day will go. so its best to arrive as early as possible. Another thing that is difficult is working with entry level people is that half of your team is there for the check. No one is really interested in learning so its harder to do everything yourself. If you're a Cell leader everyone from above and below will pressure you to meet deadlines and get everything done perfectly. Its not really a team environment.
Pros
You can work as much overtime as you want due to the high turn-out rate.
Cons
No breaks. Forced overtime

Terrible place to work at.
Fork Lift/ Clamp Truck Operator (Former Employee) –  Jackson, tnAugust 6, 2018
Terrible managment. Young inexperienced people at supervisor who were just given a position, and have no supervisor experience at all. They have a "I don't care about this job" mindset which leaves the everyday work very stressful. A terrible place to work. Management is terrible. HR is terrible. I wouldn't recommend people to work there.
Pros
None
Cons
Spinless leadership!

Boot camp
Packer (Former Employee) –  Roanoke, TXJuly 15, 2018
You’re on your feet all day. Repetitive box lifting. And it’s hot. I’m not talking just summer heat. I’m talking sweatshop, feeling like you’re about to die heat. You have to be in great shape.
Pros
Good people
Cons
Hot. Physically demanding.

Worst place to work
Packer (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 27, 2018
This company does not care about their workers. The pay sucks, they don't give you paid sick time, no room for advancement.
They have a point system that's not fair. If you have something to do you take a point for it. Human Resource messes up your checks often. This company under other managers use to give nice gifts, and picnics for their workers to show their appreciation,, all they give you now is leftovers that they don't want. and a Tee shirt.
Pros
leaving this place
Cons
poor pay, poor management, unfair co-workers, and supervisors, human resource.

Fast paced, high production.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Township of Logan, NJJune 15, 2018
All about production. Lack of help and tasks can become overwhelming at times. Machines are constantly breaking down leading to thousands of pounds of scrap that had to be baled, labeled and weighed.
Pros
Paid weekly
Cons
Short lunch, poor heath care plan(high premium), intense summertime heat

A good place to work as long as you keep your mouth shut
Floater (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJune 13, 2018
Not a bad place to work. It's just hot. One of the highest pay rates in the city for the type of work. Decent health care and retirement plans. A corporate atmosphere that's not always efficient for production. You can make a living here, but you'll be stressed out.
Pros
You have to fire yourself by being stupid or not showing up
Cons
If you're not one of the boys then you can only go so far

Converting Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  North Vernon, INMay 30, 2018
Novolex demands more and more from the people who wants to do right by the company without any compensation. They tend to keep dropping heads and adding the jobs to others with minimal opportunity to advance to higher positions.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Low chance of promotions

The coworkers are cool easy to get along with. But management especially the plant manager and the head of HR are the worst I've ever seen
Machine operator (Current Employee) –  Norcross GeorgiaApril 24, 2018
This has got to be one of the worst places I have ever seen in my life . completely unorganized for a place that deals with paper they never have any materials always running out of stuff which creates a lot of downtime. You can't go outside of the building for your lunch time cameras are put up everywhere they treat you like a slave it's kind of like a prison. Do not come to this place unless you feel like being treated less than a human being
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything about this place.

Complete kaos
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Jerome, IDApril 21, 2018
Management makes promises but cant keep them because they are frequently changed. Nwe programs are implemented but not followed through with. Machines are not well maintained. Inside joke is maintenance uses duct tape and zip ties as the primary fixes for equipment.
Pros
Steady work
Cons
No advancement opportunities
