    I have been working at KanPak full-time

    Pros

    Growing at record speed. It's nice to work for a company that promotes from within. Looks for and develops talent they already have, before looking else where. Invest in their people as well as the company. Promotes helping the community, with backpacks for kids in the Penn Yan school district. Lots of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    During the busy season, hours can be long and exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Great job... stay the course to be the best of the best.

    I have been working at KanPak full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is like working with family. Work is hard and stressful, but that is part of the job. The benefits are great and I love who I work with.

    Cons

    It is hard when issues cause you to work holidays and you were originally scheduled off.

    Pros

    Well Kanpak just recently inquired the company from the previous owners. So far they seem pretty good.

    Main people are located in Kansas and its hard to get support at times

    I have been working at KanPak full-time

    Pros

    decent pay, nearly guaranteed at least 40 hrs a week and the insurance is the best I've seen.

    Cons

    Hazardous environment, expected to do things without much regard for your safety or comfort. complete lack of management or thought from upper levels of management. They change policies with whatever sounds best to them with no consideration to what is doable or the most efficient in practice.


  6. "Terrible place to work! I worked there for almost a decade the management is poor.it is based on a buddy system."

    Pros

    Pay is good. And that's about it nothing good to say about that horrible place!!nothing but a cess pool

    Cons

    Bad management most of them have no clue what is going on. They treat their people horribly! It is not worth the time or the money to deal with all their non sense and abuse.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to fire everyone from management and hire new ones that are actually qualified!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is ok. You always have overtime whether you want it or not. Good Christmas parties. Co workers are awesome.

    Cons

    All benefits have been cut except 401k and insurance. Management is inexperienced. They treat you like your stupid. Everyone is looking for new jobs.

    Advice to Management

    When one person is the head of every department its called a monopoly. Not good.

    I worked at KanPak full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some very good people working there with real talent, although less of them every day.

    Cons

    Some of the most evil and manipulative people I ever met. I worked there for over a decade and they continually got worse. They drove out everyone who had any common sense or challenged the CEO's twisted view of the world.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating people so poorly. Some of the best people in the world work at KanPak and senior management treats them so poorly and blames them for their incompetence

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere for the most part. You can work all the overtime you want for the most part which helps.

    Cons

    They hire a lot of temps so the turn around rate is bad. Management does not care if you do a good job. Be ready to work hard!

    Advice to Management

    Offer some training classes to the employees, show that you actually care. Offer more opportunities for advancement and be dedicated leaders!

    I have been working at KanPak full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for the area

    Cons

    You just dont want to work here. :( Production management is constantly screaming at and talking down to employees who are expected to work 7 days per week without a single day off for months at a time. The majority of employees are looking for another job elsewhere or stepping on each other to get into management.

    Advice to Management

    Please leave before you run the company into the ground.
