    I worked at Solo Cup full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    liked working here for the 12 hour shifts and set schedule with 4 on and three off
    where I could take a calendar and know for the whole year what days I had off.

    Cons

    Just a slight con about the schedule to where I didn't have the same days off witch makes it harder in cohabitation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice is to not get lost in the upper levels of management and stay in touch with the workers who carry the company
