    I have been working at Dart Container full-time

    Pros

    Open atmosphere, nice people, nice buildings, nice cafe, room for growth, nice tribute garden and walking path. it's nice there.

    Cons

    Some favoritism, increases are slightly under par based on employee's successful contributions and efforts are not realized. There are lazy people who get away with doing nothing.

    Advice to Management

    To make the annual review process more specific so that employees who do contribute more can get a better raise than a less motivated worker and to weed out dead weight.

    Pros

    Nice Pay, Benefits and co workers are nice.

    Cons

    Training is terrible and people in authority talk so negative towards you in the cup plant. They have nothing positive to say and will get rid of you just because they don't like you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what's going on outside of your office. Everybody there isn't giving others a fair chance and management needs to look into it. This is why you guys can't keep people. Not because people don't want to be there.

    I have been working at Dart Container full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dart has above average salaries and provides excellent insurance, 401k with company matching and two weeks vacation after the first year.

    Cons

    Very hot working environments as you are required to LUMP (Unload) your own freight to the customers requirements. All loads are floor loaded and the majority of customers provide no assistance. You will be required to use a manual pallet jack and wrap products to secure movement. Loads range from 8000 lbs to 26000 lbs.

    Advice to Management

    Must have customers assist with the unloading process as loads become heavier and mixed with many new products.

    Pros

    Great benefits; Dart really cares about their employees. New facility is amazing! Lots of opportunity for growth and advancement.

    The recent acquisition of Solo Cup is still causing some problems. The company needs to get everything more organized and in-line. People are still confused about how the new company will run.

    I have been working at Dart Container (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and great products. I would work there again. I enjoyed working there. Everyone liked me. I do not know why I got laid off:(

    Cons

    Told I was laid off 2 months early and did not get any notice to the end of my contract. I was not given any time to find another suitable job. Going bankrupt trying to find another job now. I bought everyone in the company donuts and then was told I was laid off with no prior notice.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees at least 2 weeks notice before you lay them off. You cant lay someone off without giving them any notice. Give them at least two weeks pay.
