Box Production Company
General Labourer (Former Employee) –  Ajax, ON19 August 2016
Meadwestvaco was a box production company. It was a well rounded work place to work. With really nice people, who are really helpful. We made beer, soda pop boxes, my job was to take the boxes and put them in the feeder. The feed would then send it down the machine to which then taped or glue the boxes according to the type of box. If the machine would get jam I would have to turn the whole machine off and take the boxes that caused the jam, out then test it to see if the machine was operating properly to start back up.

But in the end it was a great place to work and I'm thankful for the experience.
Pros
Great learning experience.
Cons
Long Hours, To far of a distant.

Quality Auditor (Current Employee) –  Ajax, ON29 November 2012
My typical day at work is to check for defects on an ongoing cycle throughout an 8 hour shift.I have been with this company for 19 years and work on my own or as a team player.I have learned alot over the years.My management is great and work well with the employees in a big setting enviroment.I work well with my co workers and try to be as friendly as possible to set a good example for others.the hardest part of my job would be not having enough time in an 8 hour shift to get done what needs to be done in my role of a quality auditor.The most enjoyable part of my job would be the people i work along side off and the teamwork.
Pros
paid breaks
Cons
shift work(days, afternoons and midnights)
