I worked at Buckeye Technologies full-time

Pros

It is a fairly easy job if you can get along with the people. The hardest part is understanding that you can't make everyone happy.

Cons

It is a very hostile work environment with many irritable people. Technicians work seven consecutive work days with short breaks in-between shift rotations. They work several 12 hour days as well. Some technicians want the overtime, but they end up sleeping on the job and becoming irritable at work. Once a month, there is a five day break but it is cut short to adjust to a new shift. The technicians very well paid, but become miserable at their jobs and cannot attain comparable employment anywhere else in the county.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take control of your company. Management does not enforce the ruling contract. Furthermore, they bargain into a contract that is extremely beneficial the the union employees.
