    I worked at Anchor Packaging (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked there for 8years forklift Driver and before I was packer at anchor.I haven't worked there in 5 years.

    I liked working there it but when I would get busy no one would be there and it was heard for me to stay caught up. Don't get me wrong I enjoy working. Just don't like getting behind.

    I worked at Anchor Packaging full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    steady hours, no layoffs, not much else

    Cons

    bullying, unprofessional management, politics, extreme favoritism, good ol' boy system, complete lack of oversight by HR, absolutely awful fear-based culture

    Advice to Management

    Fire leaders who are unprofessional and treat people poorly if they don't personally like them. Have enough integrity to only hire decent human beings into management, and you might start by not hiring people with a history of extreme abuses of power and felonious misconduct for personal gain. Have a backbone, and run your business with a little class and stop turning your heads when people are not doing what is right. Ever heard of a background check?

    Pros

    The work schedule is satisfactory compaired to other five days a week schedule.

    Cons

    Too many cheifs and not enough indians. The bulling from the cheifs are the techinque management uses to get employees to work. The packers mostly, are the victums of this. One of the supervisors is the worst, she is rude, mean, cruel, and management says she gets the job done by being like this.

    Advice to Management

    We are the ones in the paragould plant who do the work. And all you want to do is sit in your airconditioned glass tower in st.louis. Making us work all holidays while you are at home.
