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.
