I worked at Fabri-Kal full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
decent work schedule. off every other weekend. Decent pay. keeps one thinking constantly. Vigilant troubleshooting. the actual job of making plastic containers is great.Cons
The training is horrible and inadequate. company claims to be "Green" but the paperwork load is astronomical. no retirement. medical insurance sucks and is total pain. off day meetings for nonsense. Ridiculous amount of tail chasing required just to do your actual job of making and producing quality containers. UNNEEDED TAIL CHASING. there is absolutely zero perks. no incentive.
company is very intrusive to the employees life outside the job and is quite sly about doing it.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Go back to basics. better training. attendance incentives. job advancement incentives. (better ones)
Replace the entire HR department with those who actually help the employees with issues instead of making them do their jobs all the time.
Get better medical insurance. one less filled with red tape.
