  2.  

    Great place to work. A little difficult to move up once you hit mid-level. If you get in at the bottom you can work you way up to mid-level easily.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great people. Routine work week, you can count on 40 hours.

    Pay is below average, but getting better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its better to retain employees (and cheaper) than to bring in and train new people.

    Pros

    Always hiring so its pretty easy to get on. They also do lots a rehires but if your looking for a steady job its not bad.

    Cons

    Always hiring can be a bad thing as well because its hard to gain consistency in the position and management expect the same high levels of output regardless.

    I have been working at Dart Container full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have excellent 401K and health insurance. They also have an open door policy and room for advancement.

    Cons

    They preach about safety but do not follow up well when safety concerns are brought to their attention. In fact, at the plant I work at they seem to fine a way up anyone who gets hurt. While sometimes it is partly the employee's fault, that is not always the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to the concerns of the employees and work to make things better for them. This will in turn make things better for the plant overall.

    Pros

    Pay is okay. There are good people who work there and care about what they output. Decent benefits

    Cons

    Not many opportunities to advance if you are a lower level employee. Seems you will get stuck in the same position for years on end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up opportunities for lower level employees to advance, especially ones that have worked there for years and have proven their worth the to company
