Machine Operator (Former Employee), Sandston, VAMarch 20, 2014
Pros: always opportunity to move up in positions
Cons: not a good environment to work for while building a family
I worked as a lead machine operator. The co-workers, supervsiors, and managers were great. There was always opportunity to grow thru the company. The hardest part of my job was trying to work daily to make sure bad products wont sent out of the building. I enjoyed meeting the goal daily in competition with other lines in the building as to who made – more... produced the most. – less

Receptionist Assistant (Former Employee), ManchesterJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: the salary was really good.
I worked the switchboard, answering the phones, made orders for products and set up meeting rooms. I also sorted out the post and placed them within the correct staff pigeon holes. I assisted the receptionist with the invoices and sending out any important emails and letters. I learnt how to use a switchboard and gained customer service skills. I also – more... learnt how to multitask. My co workers were fun. The hardest part of the job was when I first started I was asked to make an order which I was not advised how many products I was to ask for. The most enjoyable part of the job was typing up emails and letters to customers and other business' – less

Great warehouse job. Show you how to use a forklift and if you do well there is room for advancement it just may take a while. They practice safe work environment techniques everyday. Short breaks, but it's a well worth it job.

Very instering place to work.
Power department (Current Employee), Hartsville, SCNovember 26, 2013
Pros: close to home
Cons: time off and pay
Sonoco is not the place everyone thinks it is, a typical day starts out with supervisors not knowing what needs to be done for the day. next I have learned a lot of new skills since I started working for them. Work vs time home work comes out on top many times I have worked 4 to five weeks 12hrs a day with no day off.
