    Consif you are low man on in the union you must cover all the vacation of the other union guys too much overtime excessive hours.

    A truly horrid company to work for.

    Structural Designer (Former Employee) Minden, LA

    ProsI needed a job and they had one. When you're in need of a paycheck you can't be choosy. Well, I needed a paycheck so I wasn't choosy.

    ConsSee above, it's much easier to discuss what the benefits were and assume all else was a con. Working for Inland was a pleasure much in the same way herpes isn't.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company has been acquired so there isn't really much to say here.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Pay Self-Centered Leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Crawfordsville, IN

    ProsPay and Benefits were great, schedule allowed a lot of time off, earned every bit of time off. Overtime could usually be had when needed.

    ConsEverything not in pros. Long hrs., expected machines to be ran at top rating of machine for entire 12 hr shift, machine maintnance not kept up-not do to maintnance men, just greed. Employees in fear of losing their jobs everyday, no consistant training, between shifts or jobs, supervisors tend to put their downfalls on employees at any cost, their in fear of their jobs all the time and are treated poorly, run as fast as you can but stay safe, pretty pathetic approach to safety, if you do get hurt, kiss your job goodbye, it's your fault no matter what. Have a heart attack that's ok, we just want to know when you'll be back. Decisions made by an etch a sketch. Employee who are lazy but are good butt kisser are kept and the hard workers are ran into the ground and quit or are let go with no just cause.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDoesn't matter now, ran your business in the ground, made your fat cash, now employees are worried about keeping their jobs through the buy out process. Should've listened to the people working for you (on the floors) but that would've required more than just looking at your bottom line and your salaries.

    MoHighly negative s

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPays well and that's about it.

    ConsHighly negative atmosphere, biased and lord knows don't get hurt or they'll turn on you like a pack of hungry wolves. encourages employees to not seek medical care if hurt at work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn the difference between hard work with a desire to achieve and self selling narcissism. Value your employees and stop going around safety.

    The plant was very poorly operated.

    Temporary (Former Employee) Fenton, MO

    ProsThe compensation was competitive. The company was closed on most holidays, and offered holiday pay if not.

    ConsThe plant was poorly operated and the employees needs, and/or issues were never dealt with by management. Issues were never solved at the root of the problem, rather at the end of the process. Weekends were often required. The incorrect employees were blamed for problems/issues.

    The work isn't bad but the atmosphere will run you in the ground

    Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) Lexington, SC

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

    ConsThis 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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

    This place has nothing to do with normal work procedures. They are constantly hiring and quickly dismissed employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Saint Louis, MO

    ProsThe pay and benefits were decent.

    ConsManagement really does not care to give their emloyees a break " Just work " but don't pass out ! Some of the Supervisiors know absolutly nothing how to talk or even how to treat employees just yelling and screaming if they don't work faster or create the work because they are overloadet with work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more with new hiring employees to give the employee a real opporturnity for learning something for one position not just like the main thing the emloyee does something. Some of the processing areas does need more employees to help each other not just for a while but constantly that you really can have a break, that you really know what you are doing without running and jumping just to get my work done and then you have hurt yourself. Another point is, it makes no sense to go everything must quickly just things to avoid such errors from being made there again but never improves, to much waste of material and reworking but no one wants to improve something that is a shame for the time in which we live now.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
