Biased Management,Sexism,and Favoritism Define Working Here
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

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

Hope you enjoy not having any time to yourself
Fork Lift Driver (Former Employee) –  Milesburg, PAApril 11, 2018
When I worked there they never had the help that was needed for my job. There was no breaks in a 12 hour day. I always had terrible headaches working there from the smell of burning plastic. Never had the right amount of ventilation to get rid of the smoke or all the extra heat. The upstairs area had a temp recording of 132.

Very fast paced work in an unforgiving climate
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAApril 4, 2018
It is my opinion that companies like Novolex are underpaying their employees. The job I currently have pays almost 50% more with way less effort. Novolex's production expectations are high and the pay simply does not match the amount of work the employees are required to do. The job is simple but it can be hard on the body.
Pros
Little, to no supervision
Cons
Hard work for little pay
