I learned the regulations for working in a food manufacturing environment. The hardest part of the job was getting used to the fact that my work was never finished, by the time I – more... got to the end of the list it was time to start back at the beginning. The most enjoyable part of my job, at Pactiv, was the fact that it was never boring and every day was a new animal. – less

Pros: teaches good work ethics
Cons: temp and they cut hours
I was a temp to hire. Never worked in a factory before. This job helped me realize my true potential. I was one to question myself. When I was trained on how to do something I did it and to the best of my ability. As the largest guy in the building I did good work. Yeah I went home sore sometimes but that means you worked.
