    I worked at Dart Container as an intern

    Pros

    Dart had a very casual and fun work environment, and I was given responsibility over the quality control lab several times when the leads had a meeting. It was great to be able to fully contribute to their work even as an intern.

    Cons

    The pay at Dart was pretty poor, and as an intern in research as well, I often times was frustrated at the lack of expectations for teaching. The work wasn't hard, but the research leads did not want to spend any time explaining why I was doing things or even point me in the right direction of literature/information.

    Advice to Management

    The managers could do well to spend more time interacting with their employees and experiencing some of the hands-on work that they are supposed to be supervising.

    You get paid every week.
    They provide water and ice along with Gatorade in the summer.

    Cons

    It gets up to 20 degrees hotter inside the building.
    Sometimes it smells really bad in areas.
    Health wise a huge built up dust and ink particles floating around especially on fans.

    Advice to Management

    Every employee should be treated as a team player favorites should not be allowed.
    Dont be afraid to motivate your team if they are doing great let them know or if they need a little improvement motivate them to do better.
    Key work motivation!!
