    I have been working at Mondi Group full-time

    Pros

    Base pay is okay if nothing changes in the time you are there. Amazing benefits. I prefer the 12 hour rotating shift since 24 hours of vacation gets me a full week to myself.

    Cons

    Some departments advance faster than others. Ive been working for the company for 2 years and still make less than 14 dollars while people who have been there 6 months are makign 14 an hour and those who have been there only a year are making 14.50 or more.

    I worked at Mondi Group (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary for no college degree for a woman,
    Good benefits for insurance and EAP
    Close to home with little travel

    Cons

    Mondi's style of management
    Foreigners that do not know US business practices
    Promote employees that suck up or are a "yes" man.

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees that deserve it, not who just suckered up. Seems like loyalty means nothing . They gave way to much power to someone that was power hungry and it was detrimental to the company and employee morale. And now she's gonever and new HR has the same practices. The turnover rate shot up higher when Mondial took over then I had seen my whole career in paper.

    The managers and coworkers are good at the plant level.
    They have good health care, dental and vision insurance.

    The machines are older than the other plants but operators still perform well.

    Advice to Management

    Communication must be clear down to the plant level for direction on path forward.

    I have been working at Mondi Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    American co-workers are great and hard working. Mondi has poured money into new equipment including presses and conversion equipment.

    Cons

    Mondi is bringing non-Americans into the plant who lack the ability to communicate with their American co-workers.

    Mondi does not grasp American culture. They do not understand that all employees are to be treated with respect and dignity. They do not understand the American bag market. They do not understand the American commitment to quality.

    Pros

    The employees are good to work with

    Cons

    Long hours and you work 10 days straight with four days off. your first 2 years in the company you only get 1 week of vacation and this includes sick time and any personal time. The management treat you like you have no opinion and they are really a company you work for until you find something better. This company has HUGE turn over in employees. The quality department is a joke!!!!! The production department is even worse. RUN RUN RUN!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Become more involved in your people and understand their work
