The most useful review selected by Indeed
Little room for advancement, but for a daily job with a 'decent' wage it is a good option. Communication is poor from management, most communication is through the rumor mill.

Torch Packaging is a hole

One of the better decisions of my life was leaving this hole after just a couple months. Narcissistic management, lazy unqualified trainers, felt like a high school environment for adults, and you have to learn too much for how little they pay. The tape machines are outdated garbage and stuff is breaking down all the time. Avoid at all costs because there’s plenty of better jobs in the area that pay a lot more and are way easier and more professional.

Thank you for your feedback. Equipment upgrades and capital improvements are fluid, with the most recent completion of our pack end project to help with machine efficiency. In addition, we are currently searching for qualified Training Leads to assist with our training efforts. The increase in our starting pay earlier this year, and the implementation of a quarterly incentive plan has helped keep us competitive in the market. We will continue to look for opportunities to develop our leaders, increase employee engagement, and make Worthington a preferred employer.

Poor management team

It's a good o'l boy club in the front office. If your not in the club you'll eventually be forced out. Expect to be on 10hr shifts until the unforeseen future.

We’re sorry to hear about your concerns and do hope you shared or addressed them while you were working here. Our Open Door policy is intended to provide an outlet for addressing concerns, which includes any level of management, all the way up to the President & CEO should it need escalated. These can be shared in person or through written statements. The Company also offers a confidential third-party reporting line and website should any employee wish to remain anonymous. Regarding work shifts, with an increase in orders for the products created in Chilton, due to COVID-19, there has been a need for production employees to work overtime hours. We appreciate everyone’s hard work through that time! We are working hard to hire in these areas so that our current employees can get back to more normal hours. However, any employee who has a concern around scheduling issues or any issue for that matter should discuss it with their supervisor, HR Partner or use our Open Door Policy.

Management has double standards, play favoritism, create a toxic work environment.

I wanted Worthington to be the last place I worked at until retirement however, with just a year and a half in I know with certainty that this just won’t be the case. There is so much mismanagement, hypocrisy, double standards and lack of structure in the front office. There is little to no accountability in management and they place blame on others. Management has an open door policy but none of them are actually trustworthy to seek resolution to issues. The company philosophy and golden rule are good things however, management does not follow nor practice these things rather, expect everyone else to and hold them accountable to it—“do as we say not as we do.” Most people don’t quit their jobs, they quit the management. Employee retention is dismal at best and management won’t accept the blame.

We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review and are sorry to hear about your concerns. As a Company, we strive for continuous improvement in all we do, and always encourage employees to share honest feedback so we can ensure a positive work environment and experience. We do operate under the Golden Rule, and in doing so, will be sure to look into this review further.

Company is amazing to work for, however, location management changed and created less than desirable working environment.

Worthington is an amazing global company and Chilton was an amazing company to work at. However, complete management changeover created a less than desirable working environment. Lots of favoritism and lack of leadership. Became a number rather than an appreciated employee. They allow bully's in management and it's no longer a place we can feel happy going to. Very toxic.

Fast turn over

People are encouraged to report all sorts of thing but doing so can result in dismal if under probationary period. Employees under probationary period need to be very careful of what is said to whom or risk their postion.

Once in a lifetime experience

By far one of the best companies I’ve worked for. They genuinely care about their employees. There is a lot of overtime, but they reward for the overtime worked.

Overtime Galore

If you don't mind working 70 hour weeks and an HR team that messes up information and won't own up to it. I enjoyed the other employees but anyone higher up was not about a team or wanting to help.

Pros

Union

Cons

Only care about bottom line

Cameleon

Kiss butts and femailes; you will be moving up. Management is not real all two faced and secretive. Bringing managment from Corporate to solve problems does not work. No local people in management. Does not favor employees. Those in management are provided with financial incentives such as profit sharing. Persecution and shaming are fundamental dynamics of managment. The power is in corporate, the workers are union, company does not favor union and will not consider profit sharing or bonus structure for union employees.

Pros

Left over food from corporate events get passed down to workers.

Cons

Worthington way is not always the favorable way!

Too many hours

They work employees to death and really only care about numbers. They work the employees 13 days straight a lot and only give them a day or 2 off. Not enough time for family.

Worked to the bone with a terrible attendance policy, I am not happy with the policies and guidelines of the company, and look forward to bringing my skills to a better environment

I enjoy my job at Worthington, I enjoy the work and the people I am surrounded by. It's all around a great place to work.

It is a rewarding job and hard work does not go unnoticed. They treat people great. They give proper training needed to do the job, they practice strong safety laws, and line leads are easy to talk to and very understanding and caring.

Pros

Long breaks, understanding line leads, caring management, trustworthy management. Positive vibes.

Cons

Attendance policy

Was this review helpful?

it was like shuffling crew never knew from day to day where you would be

The typical day would start out with a meeting, to work safe, and to do your best. I learned to have more patients with others, working with people that accept you instead of juging you, the management was very friendly, if you had a problem you could talk with them.My coworkers were friendly. sometimes we enjoyed the oldies station together. We always got done in a greatly manner. The hardest part was figuring out if you had enough parts and enough materials to run for the night. The most enjoyable part of the job was you could always laugh when you and your coworkers are joking around, they would include you.

Pros

having potluck that was intersting, different cultures

Cons

lunch should be at least 20min instead of 15
