    Pros

    Pay is ok
    Good health, vision, and dental insurance
    Holiday pay and vacation pay is nice
    Fairly laid back working environment

    Cons

    Higher up management makes work stressful for all. Been in this position for over a year and a half and I'm still not fully trained. Get in trouble for things I never knew I was supposed to do. Supervisor plays favorites.

    I worked at Dart Container full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    12 hour shifts that give you more days off

    Cons

    Machines break down constantly, some veterans run one machine while other newer people run 2 to 3, no time to really do quality inspections, walk your butt off from machine to machine for 11 hours.

    Advice to Management

    If your machines are breaking down more than 5 times a shift, the employees are the ones that suffer. Have enough personnel to man machines properly. Good benefits don't replace body parts.

    I have been working at Dart Container full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very chill company, open door policy, room to grow within department and cross department. Overall great people to work with. The key to success is to work for a good manager/director and department. Some tuition reimbursement, great health benefit, life insurance, some company matching for 401k after one year.

    Cons

    Short to medium PTO (start with 10 days after 6 month) and you accrue it as you stay with the company. Slow to change and get things done, if it involves other department.

    Advice to Management

    The company is going in the right direction, willing to invest in new technologies but departments are still silo/segregated, more cross functional teamwork needed and enforced by upper management.

    Pros

    Great health, dental and 401K plans. Lots of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability for high dollar SAP implementation. Next to zero skills in the production planning department, answer to the lacking skills is to build inventory and build warehouses for more inventory so they are not held accountable for their poor job. Extremely top heavy in management.

    Advice to Management

    Hold folks accountable, if they can't do their job, fire them and move on.
