    I worked at Huhtamäki full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers on the floor. Not in the office. Fast workplace. Fun work environment.

    Cons

    Office people have favoritism. have no communication skills with the people on the floor. And then want to be mad about the lack of communication. And be mad at you for them not communicating with you. The lack of people ordering the right parts that need to be in the building. And then you getting in trouble for not having the right parts to fix the machines for them to be running to make quality finished product to be ready to go out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Remote people that know what they're doing. Not promote your friends.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Huhtamäki.

    Interview

    Overkill. 4 months for a Shift Supervisor Position. I felt as if I was Interviewing for the Plant Manager Position or a Position requiring secret clearance. Never 1 person Interviewing you at a time no less than 3.

    Interview Questions

    • The Common " Tell me about yourself and be specific" they weren't really after work history and how my personality merged with work, they wanted me to start at Childhood???   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Brutal, they would not give in at times even after months of interviewing they wouldn't budge BUT I was too Qualified for them to let go. It's a Game, you have to be aggressive!
