    I have been working at Poly-America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overtime, and it's 4 days on 4 days off, with 12 hour long days

    Cons

    Pay sucks, people suck, management sucks, every other aspect of the company sucks. Hardly any chance of moving up. Very small pay difference between a packer and a coordinator. The jobs that do less get paid waaay more.

    Advice to Management

    They shouldn't force you to stay at one spot just cause they need people at a certain position. And bump up pay scale

    I worked at Poly-America full-time

    Pros

    Gained the ability to practice gaining knowledge on product information.

    Cons

    Management and superiors weren't caring of their workers.
    Very unprofessional when it came to production. Would send products even if they were defective.

    Advice to Management

    Build rapport with your workers and give better raises to those working 5+ years!

    I worked at Poly-America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Four days on and off

    Cons

    They don't train you correctly and just throw you out there. They don't care about their employees at all. You're just a number to them and you are replaceable. If your overweight, they will belittle you and tell you that you need to drink more water and eat better and blah blah blah. Thanks, I already knew that. Way to point out the obvious.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees, reading a book for three hours over the basic of what your doing and giving a 15 minute run around isn't "training". Thanks.

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

    Pros

    Solid company that has a good bottom line. Very stable company that will be around for several years to come. Since they are privately held, they are able to do things that most public companies would not be able to do nor attempt to do.

    Cons

    Management is always a bit lacking. People are hired based on who they know and not always with their competency. There is also some disconnection between different sectors of the company such as Sales and Engineering.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire people based on their competency. Provide employees opportunity to grow in areas other than Production. Invest in employee continual educations.

    Pros

    Ensured job, flexibility to work extra hours, vending machines in break rooms which are deducted from your check, on site gas station

    Cons

    12 hour shifts standing up

    Advice to Management

    Have better communication with your employees and they will have a better work ethic. Schedule enough employees on a daily basis to stop extra labor by those that do show up.

  8. "hard but consistent"

    I worked at Poly-America full-time

    Pros

    solid schedule, plenty of opportunity for extra hours. 4on/off schedule leaves plenty of time off. it is consistent, onsite vending that is pulled from weekly check. not temp, full time from first day.

    Cons

    the environment is rough. no climate control, 12 hours shifts will drain you, advancement is iffy but doable. this is a labor job. you will work hard and there is no getting atround that, but as long as you are abel to deal with it, do what you are supposed to do, clock in/out., and just have a thick skin, this is a pretty decent job. would rather deal with this than any temp service.

    I worked at Poly-America full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime. Lots of downtime. The day to day job functions are not labor intensive.

    Cons

    The training is horrible and expectations become high after only a few weeks of work. The system is monopolized meaning only a select few have the ability to troubleshoot and repair bag machines. Most workers consider this loop-hole job security. Lots of favoritism. Dog eat dog work environment. (aka lots of haters)

    Advice to Management

    Offer better training.
