I enjoyed my time at E.D. Smith however I was a temp and did not know when I was working day to day. I needed a more reliable job. I wish they could have been more reliable for me.

Alot of annoying people, terrible childish bs

Your coworkers are 10% great and 90% are toddlers, supervisors are like the nut that runs the nuthouse. Job was easy enough but the people were belligerent and mouthy, really awful attitudes. Everyone seemed like they were working against each other

Pros

Not much

Cons

Company culture

If you enjoy long breaks and your a smoker this is the job for you!

Very easy going environment multiple long breaks during shift. Rotating smoke breaks in the smoking area especially on night shift with people outside for hours at a time. Loved it. No cameras in smoking area.

Great company. Complication: Agency

It was great working with the company ED Smith and the only set back that existed was that I got this job through another agency and they did not respect what was happening to me during the time when I was trying to explain that something happened to me during the job.

Pros

Experience at ED Smith

Cons

Misrepresentation of an agency.

Has a great training program to keep employees and customers safe. The hardest part of the job was standing in one spot for long periods of time. The people that I worked with were fun and easy going.

Pros

I really enjoyed the lack of stress

Cons

Can be very hot and depending on work area repetitive

Great atmosphere

Great atmosphere with very minimal stress. Hardly ever left work stressed or worrying about what I didn't finish or what I needed to do the next day. I worked in the Quality Assurance lab and enjoyed the work I did day in and day out. Coworkers were great to work with and everyone is easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job that it is a plant that runs 24 hours a day so there is shift work required. It is hard on the body rotating through 3 different 8 hour shifts every couple of weeks

Pros

Salary

Cons

Shift Work

Busy and fun, like working in the company. Team members are nice.

Everyday is a busy day, but fun and enjoyable, like the culture in the company. Team members are nice.

Good pay and benefits, but most of management was hired through the buddy system and not because of experience

unload and put away product or load product coming off the line

Pros

8 hr. shifts, paid lunch and breaks

Cons

Stupid people in management
