Pros

Interesting work and you can learn alot working in the corrugate industry. Many different aspects of maintenance in a box plant.

Cons

This plant is very poorly managed. The management doesn't believe in continuous training in maintenance because if they train you, you will leave to go somewhere else. Also this has got to be the most negative and depressing places ever as far as employees absolutely hate working there but can't go anywhere else.

Advice to Management

Be better listeners of your employees and treat them with respect and praise them when they do a good job. Also don't talk down to your supervisors in front of the workers like your the greatest thing since sliced bread and never make a mistake.

    Pros

    They are open to needed time off and provide decent benefits. I also think the office location is very convenient

    Cons

    Upper management can be very harsh with the working personnel and fail to show respect to those that do the heavy lifting.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so harsh even though its obvious you think you know everything. This comment is directed at operations management as well as corporate management.
