Press Assistant (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – November 24, 2018
My husband received a job offer at Tapecon in Buffalo, for a press assistant paying more than his other job and with better hours so he decided to take it. Well they promised him lots of things, but after just 30 days layed him off because they had "no work" to give him. Why would you offer someone a job, in writing, and then just cut them off. They even gave him several new uniforms a week before he was let go. He was hired directly through Tapecon, it wasn't through a temp agency. The boss told him that they are going through some financial troubles. I would not recommend this place to ANYONE.
Pressman (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – November 9, 2018
Management needs a ton of work along with poor leadership in the owners. Rochester location was closed years ago and lost 95% of their workforce since they relocated the entire business in downtown buffalo. No care or compensation nor increase in pay for the pressman & other workers at rochester location to relocate to buffalo, forced some to travel to with no compensation (no gas or toll or parking money no increase in pay for nearly 3 hour round trip daily) to"help" open up & organize new buffalo facility.
Production Planner, Scheduler and Estimator (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – November 6, 2018
Too stressful at times. Some employees are expected to carry 2 or 3 job titles at the same time. At times, product lines are too complex to comprehend as to plan or schedule for production. Seems like you need to be a Process Engineer just to survive there.
Press Operator/Finisher (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – September 20, 2017
I came in through a temp. service and was hired right away. i started as a Finisher, doing quality control of prints/labels on industrial machines and delivering the finished product to shipping. Eventually i moved up to a flexo pressman position working on medical devices. The company relocated our sector to buffalo and I moved with them (and got paid well to do so). working with medical devices means lots of paper work and procedures to ensure quality. my favorite part was helping the QC and management make a new procedure, they really listened to their work force and allowed us to be creative when working on a new product. the hardest part of the job was getting uniforms and having to wear hair nets. I've met some of the greatest people while working there and i went from a teenager to a mother in my 8 years at Tapecon. I quit because i decided to go back to school and i had gone as far as i could in my career there.

Finishing Inpector (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – June 4, 2013
Inspecting products for various companies and preparing them for shipment. Co-workers were fine, a little bit on the stressful side for everyone but we overcame it. Deadlines were the hardest to beat. The most enjoyable part of the job. Getting what we set out to do, accomplishing it, so we can move on.
