Pros

the people are the best and really care

Cons

very heavy workload, need more mgmt hired, with so many extra duties it is hard to do all well

Advice to Management

offer incentives for healthy living and a gym onsite. would greatly help with out of hand healthcare costs for the many unhealthy workers there. Also need more shift employees, their overtime is too high and if the company truly cares about safety they need to get all overtime lowered...its way too high for the shift workers.

    I worked at Buckeye Technologies full-time

    Pros

    It is a fairly easy job if you can get along with the people. The hardest part is understanding that you can't make everyone happy.

    Cons

    It is a very hostile work environment with many irritable people. Technicians work seven consecutive work days with short breaks in-between shift rotations. They work several 12 hour days as well. Some technicians want the overtime, but they end up sleeping on the job and becoming irritable at work. Once a month, there is a five day break but it is cut short to adjust to a new shift. The technicians very well paid, but become miserable at their jobs and cannot attain comparable employment anywhere else in the county.

    Advice to Management

    Take control of your company. Management does not enforce the ruling contract. Furthermore, they bargain into a contract that is extremely beneficial the the union employees.
