Don't know how the doors stay open

Mid Leadership (Former Employee)

I worked at Advanced Labelworx full-time for more than a year

ProsNice small town location, good building, great lunchroom with oven, ice maker, dishwasher, lots of diner like booths, etc.

ConsI think the owner is the most cruel and condescending person you could work for.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think you need to learn how to treat your employees with respect. I don't think your turn over rate would be so outrageous if you would treat your staff like humans.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

This the worst work environment that I could ever imagine.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Oak Ridge, TN

I worked at Advanced Labelworx full-time for more than a year

ProsI like the work that I did and the experience that I gained.

ConsThe owner belittles employees, micromanages, and creates a horrible, negative work environment. I would not advise anyone to work here. This woman is the spawn of Satan.

Advice to Senior ManagementSell the company to someone who knows how to treat people and customers with respect. Let employees do their job without constantly interfering. Hire some upper management to run the company and create a more stable work environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Horrible Work Environment

Shipping Clerk (Former Employee)

I worked at Advanced Labelworx as a contractor for less than a year

ProsOne nice young man working in the maintenance department.
A few empathetic employees
Stable working hours

ConsThe negative reviews here are very accurate.
Hostile work environment
Terrible communication between departments
Very high temperature people employed at ALI

Advice to Senior ManagementIt has been a couple of years since I left this company and I still have nightmares about working there. I was appalled at the way employees treated one another. I came in as a temp employee and was never given proper guidance. I was not allowed to have a proper employee manual. Instead I was given a manual that was created by an employee in the department I was assigned to. It was filled with personal affirmations, AA quotes and had little to do with the job. When I asked to see the company manual it was denied.
The owner seems to set the pace for company morale and as far as I could tell, poor behavior was rewarded. I was not surprised that several employees were either recovering or had suffered heart attacks while I was working there.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Working here was a good decision

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
Oak Ridge, TN

I have been working at Advanced Labelworx full-time for less than a year

ProsAdvanced Labelworx is stable and in growth mode. My employee review of Advanced Labeworx is a positive one. Long term promotion possibilities have been shown and proven by my co-workers. The staff and leadership is very approachable and open for employee discussions and ideas. Regular meetings with key personnel have been a great way to keep issues out in the open and resolved.

ConsFast paced environment that is stressful at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more employees to lighten the load of each one. I feel secure knowing that I am in demand at my position, but it would be nice to have a slightly lighter load.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
