    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

    I have been working at Rock-Tenn full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits, but don't bother to apply, if you are not White, American born (no accent) young and male.....It's OK if you are an alcoholic, with criminal record, as long as you are young , White, and it doesn't hurt if you have a dad, or uncle that works there.

    Cons

    Don't waste your time, If you are a middle aged Bi-Lingual Hispanic Woman, with high school diploma, USA Citizen, 20 years of heavy industry experience, perfect job record, good work ethic, etc etc...The H.R. people in ADAMS WISCONSIN PLANT will tell you there are no job openings, even when they are interviewing and hiring young Hillbillies , 4 and 5 at a time....You can check in over and over, and they will tell you there are no openings, when they are advertising, interviewing and hiring young White men...then after about a year, when they get sick of seeing you come in time after time, they will tell you don't bother to come back, they are only hiring people with MFG experience, which just proves they are not even looking at your resume, or application, if you are not White, Male, and young...They should just post a sign, WHITE FOLKS ONLY, and not waste anyone time....because you will not even get an interview....

    Advice to Management

    Better hire a good legal team, because your ADAMS WISCONSIN plant, is going to get you in trouble.
