Good job for the short term hard to advance to other positions. Hard to switch to other shifts even more so if you work the overnight shift. Pay is ok for the job.

Stresful work
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CA 93727September 13, 2018
This job was stressful due to the fact that managers often have favorites and they often are really unorganized. If a shift doesn't make the requirements on merchandise than another shift would have to run more lines pressing more work on different shifts

On the Job training
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Temple, TXSeptember 12, 2018
I started off with cycle counting and within a year moved on to a forklift position. Pactiv warehouse is a competitive work place but the training is really good the workers will pull together to help you improve on time.

Too much forklift traffic in the work are . The work is fast paced and two people should have been used
Instead of one. Many people only lasted for a day or two.

Great co-workers, decent benefits, but lacking job security.
Sr. Packaging Engineer (Former Employee) –  Vernon Hills, ILSeptember 6, 2018
I left when the opportunity arose after seeing many of my very talented co-workers get laid off. The company has been a leader in it's market, but is losing ground as they lose their investment in the people who work there.
Pros
Great co-workers, decent benefits
Cons
Lacking job security.

Need better management
Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Abilene, TXAugust 31, 2018
Management lacks knowledge. A lot of micromanagement that goes on. Suppose to be a team effort environment but that is not the case. Only a few keep that place running. The rest bs their way out of work.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Hot, no water, short breaks

Hand Packer (Former Employee) –  North CarolinaAugust 29, 2018
Make sure that you are well rested and hydrated. You are given the opportunity to learn to work in other positions while you work. Most of the workers are willing to train you. Safety is a major concern for the company.

Fast paced long hours
Industrial Electrician (Former Employee) –  Conyers, GA 30012August 28, 2018
Typical day was very reactive to equipment failures due to lack of a manpower to have a preventive maintenance program. The culture if it had one was one of if anything bad ever happened you can never do it that way again which in turn makes it your fault if you would happen to have an issue with the same task. The hardest part of the job was you were basically always on call.
Pros
Good 401k
Cons
Long hot days

not the place if you want a life
Inventory Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Saint Charles, ILAugust 20, 2018
i would not recommend this place because management does not know what they are doing at all. the place is a total mess and people are constantly getting hurt. they say that they are all about safety but in reality they don't care at all. mix all that in with long hours. if you just want to make little money in a dangerous environment then this place is for you.

This job pays fairly well at $15 to start, but know that you will be working for it. The management is not very good and do not appreciate your hard work.
