Material Handler in Damascus wharehouse
on September 23, 2019
Good place to work , but it's not very clean. I have been given some very good opportunities to learn multiple skills and to broaden my work skills some were given rightfully so , and some I had to fight for. Over all good company

Working at Sonoco had it's ups and downs like any other company. In the beginning there was plenty of support, but towards the end after upper management personnel started to leave the company, the job got pointless.
Lamination in Elk Grove Village, IL

Pros: Nice place to work at. The company cares about their employees, they do employees rewards. Cons: Is that there’s a lot of favoritism and families working there.
Forklift Operator/ Lower level pulper attendant in Hartsville, SC
on June 14, 2022
A great place to work. What I like to call a forever job. High pace production, so you're always busy. Youll definitely learn about the whole paper making process from recycled paper all the way to the finished product. They also provide great benefits along with 401k.
Industrial Maintenance in Murfreesboro, TN
on June 13, 2022
Great bunch of people to work with, production & maintenance alike. Good pay, benefits are so-so, 12hr shifts ruin any chance of having a life outside of work. Clueless & sketchy middle management.
