    I worked at Evergreen Packaging full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It was close to home and paid more than most other companies in the area. There are good people mixed in but you have to seek them out. Most are pretty beat down.

    Cons

    Very long hours. The company expects a minimum of 50-60 hours per week. By the time I left the benefits were getting very costly. I ended up taking a pay cut because our insurance went up so much. The management rules with an iron fist. They don't appreciate what they have. The infrastructure is crumbling even after spending 50+ MM on environmental upgrades. They don't like to promote from within. They will underpay you but pay upper management big dollars. There's a huge disconnect between management and front line leadership. The Union is so disgruntled it makes directing work flow very difficult. Limited opportunity for growth. If they like you in a position, plan to be there for a while.

    I worked at Evergreen Packaging full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pays decent and benefits are ok .

    Cons

    No lunch breaks have to eat on the run . Walk into work planning to work 8 hours but if relief calls in you have to work 16 hours !! No way around it unless someone wants the overtime . It’s hot in the summer need to bring extra clothes. It’s too many Indians and not enough chiefs . Work seven days and rotates shifts every week no family time and off days are usually needed to catch up on rest. Work all holidays the mill never closes . Make this your last resort if you need a job you will have no life period and your stress levels will be high as the sky !!
