Always challenging and set rules for the right reason

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A clean work environment with lots of opurtunity to learn new things, They take safety seriously and eventually I learnt for good reason.I found it frustrating I could no longer spend the time standing and walking which is required even to go to break or lunch,I enjoyed the challenges , the people and management were good to work with and we were treated fair.I believe I took my job too serious and would let things bother me too long .

Pros

Always treat the people fair

Cons

Alot of walking, hard on legs and feet

Fast paced and boring

fast paced work, will often send people home if they arent needed that day. if you finish your work early you'll get sent home as well which can be difficult if you need the 40 hours to get by

Great

Excellent place to work especially the training was so great I learned invaluable life lessons there that I still use to this day. If you have a chance to work there do it!

Great place to start a career

P&G is a great place to start a career. That are strong on leadership and taking on responsibility early on. There are also very robust industry-leading systems and processes in place. You also get to work with very smart and driven people. It has a promote-from-within culture and a 1/2/3 rating system which makes colleagues overly competitive to outshine each other. The culture also has a sort of group think and too much internal focus. Pay is competitive and overall work environment is great. There is a lot of talk and initiatives around work life balance but reality does not exactly match the talk.

A Business School

You will be faced with real business problems and projects from day 1; the kind that you will typically be presented as a case study in a business school. These will certainly lead to rapid growth

Pros

Great culture

Cons

Sometimes leadership is driven by delivering KPIs versus solving the real problems

Use to have people has their greatest asset.

Avoid today as is no longer great benefits. They have seemed to have lost their way when it comes to valuing people. She. I stated in 1989 it was one the best employees not now!

Nice to start work

Everything was good except sometimes you have to move a lot to put things from one side to another. Supervisors were not that friendly. And sometimes they just send people home when they have not much work.

Good Place to work Good People

Worked here for 10+ years never had any issues, the shift is a little rough to start and maybe a bit hectic to get through the first couple months of learning but after that your set and good to go.

A waste of time

It's a completely toxic work environment, unless you're related to someone high up or a 23 year old girl in tight blue jeans you'll be treated like garbage. Every few weeks a group of about 20 new hires come through and usually only 2 or 3 stay because the rest realize they'll never get signed off for their advancements. No men over 35 ever stay because the established crew see them as a threat. The 12 hour rapid rotation throws off your natural rhythms until you can't figure out how to sleep or eat properly so you never enjoy your time off. Probably one of the worst places I've ever worked.

Pros

Nice cafeteria

Cons

Everything except the cafeteria

Horrible

Popularity contest in management! Horrible atmosphere, leadership sucks, everyone’s rude, if you don’t fit in or suck up you won’t make it anywhere. Hours suck. 15 days off? More like you sleep your whole one day off after getting off midnights.. 12.5 hour shifts are a killer. Was never shown how to get full time after being there for two years. Will not switch you to line or anywhere else if you can not physically work somewhere. I could go on.. not worth it!! Don’t even care if you have a life outside of work. Family problems forget about them. It’s all just WORK here. Sick? Still come in! Snows so bad you almost go in the ditch? Don’t care aslong as your still on the road come in! Horrible place..

Great Pay and Benefits,

It's a great place to work with good pay once you reach a certain level as the starting wage is nothing special, it's continental shift work which is alright. Great place to work if you like problem solving but it's extremely fast paced rushed and stressful

Pros

Great Pay and Benefits

Cons

Hot work environment

Great place to grow

The conpany is all about internal growth and if you are good in your job you will grow. The hiring process is a bit long but once you are in the benefits and opportunities are amazing.

Okay pay, stable hours, enjoyment heavily based on if you have a good team and if your manager likes you

Alright pay with stable hours but with the price of apartments it's not a livable wage. The company has also removed most of the perks of working here and changed them with "cost effective" replacements. If anything goes wrong they will put all of the blame on the employees and not take any accountability for it

Site Service Technician at large distribution warehouse, is outsourced so NOT a PG employee

Work is good, technology at site is state of the art. Unfortunately pay is poor with little to none yearly increase even with good performance review.

Very disappointed in this company.

This company hides alot about themselves and is not the be all end all as it claims to be. Very unprofessional on how current employers treat new employees while onboarding. Hiring young managers with no experience to oversee operations is like hiring a high school student on a power trip and they abuse there authority by being whiny little babies and crying to mommy if something doesn’t go there way. High turn over rate and it shows. This company is going downhill with there professionalism and steering focus more towards a political then business aspect. Look very hard into this before working here. If you have 20 years experience in trades this will not help you achieve goals but could potentially make you a target in certain areas of the plant, do not give advice on how to approach tasks easier and safer.

Pros

None

Cons

HR Management, Current Leadership

Low morale and rapid shift rotation

I was there for nearly 8 years. The pay/benefits would be great except the rapid shift rotation and toxic environment made it no longer worth it for me.

Pros

They've slowly taken away all the perks

Cons

Rapid shift rotation. Toxic and negative

Slowly becoming "just another factory"

The job itself pays very well. Advancement is almost impossible due too current workforce. Culture has shifted very negatively in recent years. There are too many people who work in office roles with zero help on the Production floor (which is were you actually make your money). Managers are lazy and entitled. The only time you see or hear from them is when things are going poorly, if things run well they are cant be seen or made available for career advancement opportunities. Most of them are new graduate hires with Zero days of real work experience. Accountability does not exist in the site. Lots of experience in the plant however they are not good leaders or are not pushed to be better. Workers becoming stressed, agitated and over worked. Expectations of workers are very high and are constantly being pushed to do more and sacrifice time however, the site doesn't have that expectation of itself. Who knows how long this Site will even be open in the next 5-10 years

Pros

Compensation

Cons

Culture
