    Former Employee - Maintenance Technician in Fort Smith, AR

    I worked at International Paper full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent and pay is good for the area.

    Cons

    Maintenance crew was very clicky. The shift on nights 5 /12 hour shifts are hard to maintain. That much time on your feet on concrete even if your young makes it hard on your back and legs.

    Former Employee - Maintenance Technician in Aurora, IL

    I worked at International Paper full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have good benefits and every quarter, they have a production meeting. Offer good food, and raffles for some pretty good prizes. People get recognition.

    Cons

    Ah, where to start... They have the pay scale posted in the break room. They have new hire pay, 6 months, 12 months and 18 months. After Working by myself on second shift, I have a great review. I asked my supervisor if I would be getting a raise and was told, "I don't see why not". After waiting a few weeks, I was told "no, they want to see more." I asked what I need to do to receive a raise, again it was "more". They could not give me any detail. I asked what area I need to improve and again I was told that they want to see more. They did not say that anything was wrong, they just wanted to see if I would keep up with what I had been doing. Same thing happened on my 12 month review. When I asked why I wouldn't make more than starting pay for being there for 12 months, I was told that there were people there for 10 years still making starting pay! I asked them why they had the raises put on a calendar system and I was told that they had to put something down! I left them with only a 2 day notice. Do you self a favor and don't work there.

    I worked at International Paper full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A joke of a place to work. Hour before you leave the shop, then come back for a hour break, leave again to come back for your hour and a half lunch, leave again to come back at 2:00pm to get ready to leave. Felt bad at first but when you don't have a planning department and you don't have supervisors that know what to do how to do it or even care you tend to go with the flow.

    Cons

    Supervisors are so job scared they are trying to get the workers fired all the time to keep heat off of them. Plant is a dump
