Good People until you get into the leads and mahagers
operator (Former Employee), Booneville, Ms – October 5, 2014
Pros: exercise room, good benefits
Cons: a blind eye to racist leads and managers
If you can handle back stabbing racist lead men/women and a couple managers that's the same way you will be fine there. Some of management is blinded by their own ignorance as to how people get treated. If you're in production you are treated as someone who has little to no knowledge of anything. The people on the floor get less out of the company than – more... the office employees. – less
Great place to work with great people to work with!
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Booneville, MS – August 28, 2014
I enjoyed my time with AccoBrands. It was a great experience. I enjoyed my co-workers who made the day worth being there. I loved our engineer, he was totally nice and was willing to listen to ideas and actually explain the why or why nots.
Pros: working from home, company car allowance, phone allowance
Cons: additional sales responsibility with no additional compensation.
ACCO Brands purchased MeadWestvaco Consumer & Office Products in May 2012. After the merger - MWV - was downsized every quarter/semester by eliminating positions and adding on more responsibilities to the people that still had jobs and they offered no additional compensation for the extra work load. We did not have a National Sales Meeting in 2013 due – more... to expenses.
The Mead Marketing Team did an excellent job on creating new products and advertising the brand. I still worked will all facets of the business model to drive sales at my accounts. I was given additional account responsibility in January 2014 - an additional $4 Million in calendar business. – less

Cons: warehouse heat
COUNTING/CHECKING INVENTORY ALL DAY LONG UNLOADING TRAILERS TO BE CHECKED AND COUNTED. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED, MANAGEMENT WHEN I WAS WORKING THERE. HARDEST PART OF THE JOB WAS TO WORK IN A WAREHOUSE THAT WAS POORLY AIR CONDITIONED DURING THE SUMMER.

Pros: good hours, quick promotion, good people.
Cons: temporary, distance
My day started with a meeting with the supervisor. Then I run my machine with 2 packers. 12 hour shifts. 2 short breaks and 1 lunch break.

The hardest part of the job was having responsibility – more... over my co-workers, tho I enjoy having responsibility. Being the leader. – less
Nice place to work. The employees that work there are a great bunch of people.
PRODUCT PROJECT LEADER (Current Employee), Sidney, NY – March 10, 2014
Typical work day can be stressful at times. Managing multiple projects can get crazy sometimes, but the knowledge and dedication of the other employees make it worth while. There are daily meetings and project reviews, daily changes to timelines, and there always issues to take care of, but that is part of the job. The location is pretty easy to find, – more... right off the main interstate. – less
I handle multiple tasks every day. I manage orders, ensure product is available, run reports, collaborate with many internal customers, handle deductions and ensure customer metrics are met or exceeded. Extensive knowledge of internal systems and customer systems. Customer Service Training Lead. Provide superior customer service.
I love the challenges – more... that come along with my job. I enjoy improving processes and finding more efficient ways of doing things. I take ownership of each aspect of my job and am very passionate about what I do.
I work with wonderful people; team members, forecasters, people at our plants, supply chain, purchasing and our deductions dept. – less
truck loader (Former Employee), Booneville, MS – November 14, 2013
Pros: good employees
Cons: short breaks, long hours, and poor management.
While working at Acco was very rewarding at first. My co-workers were extremely helpful and nice. The management just do not care for their employees. They expect you to work very long hours and when it comes close to a holiday the management will work you even harder and you may or may not get all your holiday days off. There is a lot of favoritism – more... within the supervisor department. – less
Customer Service/Strategic (Former Employee), East Texas, PA – July 12, 2013
This job was the best job that I had in my whole life. I am so upset that they had to close down and move down south. I learned a lot in this job and I had great responsibility. This job taught me about national accounts and strategic accounts.
Machine Operator (FULL-TIME) (Former Employee), East Texas, PA – June 26, 2013
Start the day with looking at the board to see what equipment you are suppose to run or be on. Learned several pieces of equipment while working with qualified employees. The hardest part of the job is troubleshooting machinery that was set up by another co-worker. Management is always there for support. The most enjoyable part is having a job to go – more... to everyday. – less
