I am new to the Apex team and have really liked my time here so far. Plant team works very hard since it is busy with large amount of orders. Have been able to work multiple overtime shifts since starting. Was hired and started during COVID since Apex is an essential service and multiple steps are in place to make sure ppl are safe (masks, hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies for machines). Feel comfortable coming into the building. Not a lot of interaction between the office and the plant teams, but people on the plant team are very nice and welcoming. Been able to learn a lot in a short period of time, but machines are very specific. Believe that there are good development opportunities.

The machines needs maintenance and they don’t allow anyone to do the maintenance on the machines. There are also worn out parts on the machines. And they won’t replace it. Overall, this is not a good company to work for. There is also a high turnover rate. People come and go.

- Lots of SOP's to follow, can be difficult to learn but once you understand them they are easy to follow
- New annual review process, helps employees understand what the job expectations are for each role.

- High standards for employees

- Good relationship with managers and HR, can talk to them if there are problems. Usually get an answer or they help fix the issue, but not always.

- Team gets along well and help each other out, but you have to ask for help.

- Company does social events, summer party and holiday party are fun.

- When work is slow, company doesn't send ppl home or cut hours but find things to fix or improve so you don't lose wages.

- There is turnover for new operators that join, new team members don't seem to want to work as hard as the current employees.

- Focus on product quality, so mistakes are taken seriously

- Very specialized work in most areas, so not a good fit for everyone

The company supports a very specialized market, pharmaceutical printing. Very quality-focused, so lots of process and procedures to follow. Need to learn them quickly to avoid mistakes

Lots of opportunities to grow in the plant, started in a junior position then being taught about machinery/technical skills. Can progress quickly if you are a hard worker and focus on the details. Lots of staff that have been there 10+ years, good environment but has typical issues all manufacturing warehouses have. Pay is fair at start, gets above average when you progress to technical roles.

Have been working at Apex for approx. 2 years now and have been given multiple opportunities to take on new responsibilities and learn different areas of the organization.

The company has had some turnover in the Bindery and Front Office teams, however, the employees who have been hired to replace these team members are a wonderful fit with the team and culture. It feels like a more positive and efficient organization.


From my experience at the company, I believe that if you work hard and collaborate with your team members and other departments, you will be recognized. Have noticed that when errors happen, managers take the time to provide more training to ensure that you understand. However, if/when employees make the same mistake over and over, the company starts to document mistakes, which can impact your bonus.

They are very nice people but for what they want us to do, they don't have the right equipment or customer service for it.
They have great intentions but they really should stick to what they know best and that is the pharma industry.

This company is all about printing/binding/machinery - very much so direct mailing which is interesting work for the right person. You must have drive, passion and a strong work ethic.

Good job security if you do your job, few layoffs. But not respected for what you do, Old technology except in the bindery. Good team building days.

I worked at Apex Graphics for over 1 year, starting as a temp moving to full time permanent. The team took time to train me and ensure I was comfortable with my day to day responsibilities before I was allowed to work without supervision.

At the start of 2018, there were several (3) employees who left the organization, the company communicated these departures quickly and respectfully. While it seemed like a lot of transition within a short period of time, the roles were quickly filled and the replacement employees have been skilled, reliable and eager to support the current team.


I have never worried about my job, even when production became slow. Management has communicated often what the companies outlook is.
Pros
Benefits, Vacation, Monthly Social Committee events
Cons
Wish for more structured training opportunities to learn different machines

- pay is just below industry standard
- hours were good

- benefits (minimum)


This is a company that promotes itself as having a great culture and is a great place to work but don't be fooled. It was a revolving door of employees, they changed the door key code when someone was fired and no one could remember it because it happened so often (of course all these people were referred to as "bad apples", they weren't. It will take a little while to see that what they say and what is actually the case is really 2 different things. Very poor management.
Cons
poor management, outdated equipment, nepotism

Awesome place to work. In almost 40 years of working I have never worked in a place that cared for its employees like this. Its refreshing and totally not the norm.
