    I have been working at Spicers Paper full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This location is a union shop and you have great benefits, you make decent money, and there is a lot work.

    Cons

    You have a lot of hours and new rules that are implemented all the time. You work nights at the beginning until you are able to move up to days if you want.

    Advice to Management

    I think they are doing a good job maybe just listen to their employees a little more, they might be able to help with some of the problems they might have.

    Family environment Dedicated employees Highly respectful management Proud to be operating in the paper industry Honestly care about customers and service

    Cons

    Lack nationwide leverage of some competitors Weak in the 100PCW paper and products Does not employ use of technology as well as some competitors

    Allow branch managers more decision making responsibility and ability Focus on customer's needs, the bottom line will take care of itself if our customers choose Spicers over our competition.
