    Pros

    There are no pros. I hated this job from day one. I knew i had made a mistake on my first day

    Cons

    They are more interested in firing than hiring. They send people to class for about aweek to teach them how to supervise. An they come back the devil

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing all the experience workers. Your youth movement is gonna ruin this company. And Mangement stop competing tryin to see who can fire the most people in a year. Your turn over is way to high. People hate the Conover NC location. They have fired everybody body from the City or somebody in there family. Made me scared to wear the uniform at times. People would always ask you work for Rocktenn with a angry look on there face. Yeah Rocktenn fired them
