Definitely has leadership issues
For the most part going to work was enjoyable working with people on the floor. The plant has struggled with leadership and frequently changes plant managers and supervisors. It does not feel like a stable place to work.

Lean Corporate Office
Decent work environment. Overall, working here will give you lots of exposure to various markets and levels of management in the organization. Need to be a self sufficient go getter to succeed. Very competitive and lots of turnover within the organization. Not much opportunity for development.

Workers did not have tools to do their jobs
Was in a difficult transition period. Management change over. Supervisors changed. Employees had a difficult time knowing who to go to. Corporate management (often helpful) was off site and not hands on.

The work schedule gets changed without any notice, be prepared to clean up sewage backing up into the building, machines are old with missing guarding
The pay is low for machine operator and upper management is horrible. They totally take advantage of the foreign employees. This place is not worth losing your life or limb for no pay or respect. If you have options or qualifications pass this place over. Otherwise make some money and be prepared to leave.
Pros
Some nice workers
Cons
Management, old machines, very low pay

Walk away while you can
When I accepted the job to work for Novoloex Heritage bag the plant manger said they needed a lot of help and wanted to make the plant better, implement safety, lean and 5s measures and improve quality. I found out quickly that this wasn't true, there is no culture of safety or support there, all they want is production at the cost of anything else including people's health and well-being. I have never worked for such incompetent upper management and HR was right behind them supporting the effort. Run away as fast as you can trust me this place is awful.

Different things are for different people. You have to see for yourself
It was a long hard ten years. But I wouldn't have it any other way. I was challenged both mentally and physically. If you can work in the sack dept at Novolex, you can truly do any job out there. This I know.

Terrible
People were rude, the company had shady practices and no one gets raises. If i could've left on my own terms i would have a month ago but i had been going through a very rough time in the hospital and they didn't care. Had less than 3 weeks of training and was put on a very complex machine while having NO machine operating experience whatsoever and was removed due to not fulfilling their needs. Expressed that i wanted more training and was refused and told that i should have enough training.

Great Company
I like to be active and this job was one of my fav. Beside the QC management and supervisors having their favoritisms. Once you aren’t in their good side they put you to do hard heavy stuff and break and lunch at the end! Other than that coworkers are friendly and caring. You just have to keep to yourself and do the job and go home (to avoid any problems) “do what you gotta do and leave” Great benefits, soso good pay, sick hours, vacation days, 401k benefit. 30 minute lunch, two 10 minute break. Cleanest warehouse!
Pros
Easy job
Cons
Drama

Productive and fun workplace at first. Not so much now.
My first few years were great. I enjoyed coming to work and doing my job. Lately certain employees have been going out of their way to get others in trouble for no particular reason and management only hears one side of the story and goes with it. I'm not use to being in that type of environment. I don't go out of my way to get another employee in trouble. I'm never late, never tardy and I never call in. I just do my job and I go home. That's the type of employee that I've always been.
