    Mature work force - Top Talent Laid Back atmosphere

    The high deductible insurance hurts. They do offset it some with free HSA money provided you participate in a health screening.

    Pros

    some of the workers are nice and considerate others are the worst I have ever worked with, backstabbers inconsiderate and only out for them selves and they don't even realize all the crap they are pulling will screw them in the end by creating a hostile work environment.

    work the crap out of you while on probation. supervisors will lie and screw you any chance they get. some of the employees start trouble and think its funny. employees against employees

    Pros

    Very good experience for first internship and utilized engineering skills. As an intern I was well promoted among the mill leadership.

    Cons

    Some work was repetitive as with any internship but could have handled more project wise.

    I have been working at Green Bay Packaging full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work is easy, no skills needed really. If you can stand, bend, lift 25 lbs, and do basic math you will succeed here. Pay is better than most box shops.

    Cons

    Repetitive work that is not very stimulating. Weak senior management leadership is evident by the lack of communication, poor middle management integrity, and a culture of punishing those that take the initiative to solve problems.

    Advice to Management

    Increasing the transparency

    Pros

    Great place to work for anyone who needs to earn a solid hourly rate. Can work up through levels and get certified for many jobs in plant if you want. This takes time as it is a seniority based system of promotion.

    Cons

    Can be stressful when busy, deadlines can be short, must pay attention to detail and not make errors. Write ups/disciplinary actions are common for minor infractions or mistakes made. Rework is common when others do not follow job requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Let workers do there jobs. When something fails, let it go and move on. Listen to employees who have ideas on how to make jobs faster and easier and implement changes. Get rid of employees who fail to keep up with technology or requirements of their jobs no matter how long they have been there. Mr. Kress could make a visit to see how the place is doing once in awhile.
