Electromechanical Tech. (Current Employee) – Rogers, AR – March 20, 2019
Management continuing the decline. Years of 2-3% raises causing pay to fall behind chicken plants in area. Because of hiring freeze we are contracting out HVAC job for 3x the cost of hiring someone [to save money?]. The operator turnover is huge, out of 10 people hired, 6 didn’t show up for the interview, maybe 5 make it a month and maybe 3 a whole year.
Service Technician (Current Employee) – New Jersey – March 10, 2019
I was told many things before hiring. Most of them turned out to be untrue. My work territory, potential for commission, culture, even the 'free' company car proved to be wrong. When I tried to discuss this with my manager, it was shrugged off. It's like they don't want you to succeed. Bizarre.
I was I was told after I was hired that I would not receive formal technical equipment or sales training until I was working there a year. I was still supposed to repair equipment and sell service contracts in the mean time. It is embarrassing to be sent to a customer site to repair something when you don't even know what the equipment looks like, never mind how it should work. I was told I needed to call other Technicians for repair advice, while I am at the customer site. They are busy too, and often would not answer their phones. My coworkers had to train me, either during a ride-along or during cell phone calls. There is no root cause diagnosis. No one uses the minimum of even a multimeter for testing. Instead you keep throwing parts at it until the fault is corrected. Ridiculous!
I've been a Technician for many years, having managed several service departments, but have never seen anything like this.
I was also supposed to be making my commission targets, but had no time to work on my CRM. Too busy doing service calls-for free, btw.
Work force and management team were just not on the same page

It is a very stressful fast pasted environment with a lot of daily challeges and poor mangement
Operator (Former Employee) – Simpsonville, SC – February 6, 2019
A typical day at work would be very stressful and full of challenges . The management was very poor and undisciplined. A lot of the departments were very unorganized and not able to meet product time lines. At of safety incidents not properly reported. A lot of mangers are not good teacher or listeners and lack leadership. Many meeting were department problems and issues were discussed were never meet with solutions and would often cause more problems because of that. After awhile it becomes hard to work their with the poor environment and no were to turn for help or guidance within management or human resource department
You do not want to work here this place is a absolute joke the management is horrible people are fired at left and right people that have been here 3 months to 30 years does not matter they will walk you out with no issues you can only be late three times and you're fired you could not say certain words or wear certain clothes there are all kinds of rules here trust me his place is crazy I've been here almost four years and I'm looking to get out it is not fair what they pay you and all the work you do you will work 12 hours a day for months straight without any days off its dirty also
Product Care - Marketing (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – January 31, 2019
I'm still employed here (3 year employee) and I (and many others) cannot wait to get out of this place. Don't be fooled by some of the good reviews here. You might even get a good job offer from this company but you will regret working here within only months when you see the culture and poor management.
This company is a complete tragedy. The Product Care division is mismanaged in every way. Acquisitions is what keeps this division look better than it really is. Organic growth is almost non-existent. Total jokers are running the show here.
This company has so many big ideas, but hasn’t been able to follow through. If you love a changing environment you will enjoy this company. However, the last couple of years has been a roller coaster of excitement and let down.
A typical work day at Sealed Air consists of constant movement and working together to complete the task at hand. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the heat during the summer and the cold during the winter.
Paid lunch, collaborative, multiple breaks, great benefits, compensation, overtime
Packer/Inspector (Former Employee) – Hanover, PA – January 7, 2019
If you're the type of person who would like to work at a job with little or no training, Sealed Air in Hanover PA is the place for you! If you like being screamed at by the operator and lead person, Sealed Air is the place for you. If you like going to work everyday and not knowing what sort of crummy job you'll be forced to do, Sealed Air is the place for you. If you like being lied to and bullied by management, Sealed Air is the place for you. If you like working in unsafe conditions on a regular basis where you might lose a limb or two and be held accountable for your accident, Sealed Air is the place for you! If you like sharing the break room with the resident mice, Sealed Air is the place for you! Other than that, I have no complaints!
99% of my coworkers were awesome! I don't work there anymore.
Great Culture, Decent Compensation, but Shrinking Company
Product & Process Analyst (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – January 7, 2019
The best part of working at Sealed Air is the culture of the organization - after working there for four years it is clear many care deeply about their job, the company, and customers. The company has decent compensation compared to its competitors but is low compared to the geographic area it is located. Recent challenges in the company's Product Care Division are a major drag on the other more profitable division and will likely result in the company continuing to shrink, a trend started in 2017. Overall I would recommend as a great place to work in the short term (next 5 years) however growth opportunities beyond that may be limited as the company continues to shrink and return cash to the market via share buybacks.
Excellent campus, many long-tenured employees, organizational knowledge
