Pros

Interesting work and you can learn alot working in the corrugate industry. Many different aspects of maintenance in a box plant.

Cons

This plant is very poorly managed. The management doesn't believe in continuous training in maintenance because if they train you, you will leave to go somewhere else. Also this has got to be the most negative and depressing places ever as far as employees absolutely hate working there but can't go anywhere else.

Advice to Management

Be better listeners of your employees and treat them with respect and praise them when they do a good job. Also don't talk down to your supervisors in front of the workers like your the greatest thing since sliced bread and never make a mistake.
