    I have been working at Printpack

    Pros

    lots of extra money to spend on things I want. The job is usually fast paced and exciting. I enjoy it

    Cons

    no free time to spend the money I make. They are horrible to their temps. its a very "good old boy" place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of your dead weight. stop giving overtime to employees doing lesser work for more money. you are losing thousands a week.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits!
    Extensive safety training and focus serves as a good resume enhancement and selling point for future opportunities.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts can translate to long work weeks if not scheduled on a rotating shift (depends on location and staffing)
    Pushed continously for production

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers tend to be insensitive to the need for notice for working overtime/weekends

    Good Company, Good Opportunities, Old Boy Network at Top

    Former Employee - Professional
    Former Employee - Professional

    I worked at Printpack full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company takes care of long-term employees, there is room to grow if you're ambitious and willing to make your path (and find good promoters), the company has a strong reputation in the packaging industry. Great HQ location in Atlanta, with lots to do. A lot of good managers will be very supportive of work-life balance. The culture depends on the location and department, but there are a lot of younger people and a willingness to try new things and improve.

    Cons

    A bit of a good old boy network at the top, and a few high-level players that probably would have been let go in other companies. If you're a woman or a minority, you will probably hit a glass ceiling several at or below the director level. Increases in pay can be a bit low, holding long-term employees below new market compensation levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best teams benefit from fresh perspectives, including at the top. Poor managers are noticed and that hurts morale.

    I worked at Printpack full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The corporate office is a nice building with a workout area and dining room.

    Cons

    The hours were brutal. There was no overtime, and no comp time, just week after week of 60+ hours. No opportunities for women. Ridiculously pretentious dress code for a potato chip bag manufacturer. No sense of environmental responsibility. If an employee's direct manager was a tyrant, work was miserable and entire departments were highly dysfunctional as a result of managerial totalitarian power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could have asked my advice when I was there, would not waste my energy in such futility. Unless of course, they want to reimburse me for all that unpaid overtime that I worked…

    Pros

    Owners are loyal to long-term employees even though they perform poorly.

    Cons

    Poor management that has been with the company for years. The only thing they know is Printpack. They lack the ability to make business decisions and know nothing but Printpack. They are allowed to behave badly and lack respect for others.

    No pressure so a lot of people just putting in time and running the company into the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to turn the company around replace everyone in pay grade 1-4.

    Pros

    Pay, secure job, benefits, not a bad place if you play the game right. Be dependable and honest in your work.

    Cons

    They will work you and work you if they have overtime, you will have no time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the "Good old Boys" way of doing things.
