    My experience was awesome. I loved my job. Yes, it's hard work but it was worth it for me, wish I didn't have to move.

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

    Pros

    I started as a product handler, loved it. Trained new hires, made them feel welcome, because when I started back in Oct of 2011, I was not welcomed. After a year I decided to become a machine operator. Loved it even more. The environment at the Ada plant was great. It's not for everyone. If you like loud noise, hot and cold environment and be on your feet 8 to 12 hours a shift and care about the product you are making for people to eat and drink out of, this is the job for you. I didn't have to deal with the public that too me was a big plus. The management I had on first and second shift was great I worked occasionally on third shift and had no problem with the management there either. As long as you do your work and follow the rules there is no problem. I wish I could have stayed, I don't believe I will find another job that I truly enjoyed as much as working at Solo/Dart.

    Cons

    The only thing I can possibly think of is the machines are old and need to be fixed correctly and stop trying to work around it and waste product and labor. I believe it would be more cost effective to fix it right the first time, than to just keep playing with the "adjustments" when the problem lies within the machine itself not the operator.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had great management on all the shifts I worked. The ones complaining were not doing their job, or just don't like their job. The company needs to continue to make a good product and to make a profit. If you have people that you may like as a person but are lacking in the job performance, you need to reevaluate that person and see if someone else would be a better fit. When people stop caring about the product and the company, it's time for them to move on. It can't be just a "paycheck" for them it needs to be more than that.

    Pros

    Some of the positives for working with this company is that you gain skillful experience each and everyday, the insurance benefits are great and most of the people you work with are friendly along with the staff.

    Cons

    To me the challenges are just being able and willing to learn something new everyday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some advice to management is to stay alert and on top of things because you can be fired as quick as a regular employee.

    Pros

    This was a good company to work for, my time was short because of a management decision to sell the company to Dart Industries Inc.

    Cons

    My only regret was that I did not have vesting rights and suffered a lay-off.

    I worked at Solo Cup

    Pros

    Solo Cup is a company that values is employees not just its customers and management as can often be the case. It truly values its employees at all levels of the organization. It offers a complete and comprehensive, quality benefits package to its employees which can be quite rare these days. Solo is an organization that is not afraid to take a hard line in reducing unecesary spending in order to keep the the company viable and competitive.

    Cons

    Due to the challenges that Solo Cup has faced financially since its acquisition of Sweetheart they have had to make difficult choices in reducing the number of employees. Until Solo is consistently operating in the black there will always be a concern for its employees about job security. Those who do remain in the mid to upper levels often find their workloads increasing time and time again as employees are let go in an effort to reduce overhead. This can lead to burn out of quality, dedicated employees - Employees that Solo struggles to replace with other quality workers given the public knowledge of their financial struggles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would urge the Senior Management of Solo to continue pursuing their goals of right-sizing their workforce, and reducing overhead as well as streamlining and improving its product offerings to increase its market share and providing financial stability for the company and its employees.
