I have been working at Pactiv full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Fast paced, decent pay, safety focused(so injuries are low), not that hard(but then again i'm hyper-active).

Cons

Not always enough people to handle the amount of work required-which makes quality suffer. In defense of that, most new hires last less than a day or two, so it's hard to keep workers.. On your feet all day, sometimes you'll miss your breaks because of work demand.

Advice to Management

Understand that we only have two arms and two legs, things can only get done so fast. Sometimes safety rules can't always apply, i'm not too worried about wearing a hairnet when i'm trying to keep a machine from catching on fire.

    I have been working at Pactiv full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have a job (w/meager benefits considering how successful the company is)

    Cons

    First and foremost the people I work with have experienced the scorched earth called the Pactiv/Reynolds merger. Most of the trench warfare workers have all been with the company less then 18 mos. Management (if they've were lucky enough to survive the buyout) is cold and self-serving. Mid-management level is so ill-equiped to manage themselves let alone a team of people. The atmosphere is abusive, but it is known, accepted and tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    I would not waste my time offering. They know what the problems are but are more concerned about appearances than doing what's right.
