irrelevant. The mill is shutting down permanently in June. What can I say, I enjoyed the time I spent there and I appreciated the opportunity to work there. I only wish Sonoco could have seen fit to keep the mill running as it was one of the top producers in the Sonoco family

If you have a great work ethic than this company, its crews and the culture will work for you. Great training, overtime available and a good rapport between management and staff. Yes, you have to work hard and hard work has made the company successful and able to support its employees.

Run , don’t walk away. The air quality is the worst. The workers washroom , change room and lunchroom are disgustingly dirty and nobody seems to mind. The office washroom and lunchroom.....clean. The coworkers are mostly miserable. Everyone talks dirt about everyone. The money is just ok. You’ll work a 10 hour shift with only a 30 minute break. Your coworkers with seniority will treat you like dirt - yell and swear at you without any real issue from the managers. The workplace is way too small for the work that’s being done so you’ll constantly be moving stock from place to place all day long. Getting in each other’s way and blocking others work causes animosity and arguments daily between the workers. I only worked there for a short time but I could see the misery and frustration in the other workers eyes. It’s a sad , sad place to be. If you like working in a dusty dirty dungeon you’ll love this place. With so many jobs out there for the same money - save your time - your lungs and your long term health and just keep looking.
Pros
4 day work week
Cons
You have to be in the dust and dirt for 4 days.

Pay is great. some of the people are wonderful to work with and will become your best friends. Some people will go out of their way to make you miserable, and management will turn a blind eye.

J’étais sur la maintenance des machines. Je n'avais pas d'horaire fixe, mais une restriction, faire mes taches dans un délai de 3 jours. Donc, je ne vivais pas de stress ce qui était agréable. Quand mes trois coordonnateurs ce mettais en accord sur mon travail, tout allais bien
Pros
super avantage sociaux
Cons
trop de coordonnateur

I learned to value my work at Sonoco as much as I value my relationship with my co-workers because we work there as a team. I find it challenging sometimes in hitting our daily targets but thanks to our undrestanding management we're able to achieve it. I love working at Sonoco because we are like a family there.

The culture at the time was interesting, very rigid, not accustom to change or new ideas. Pay was ok at the time, my personal commute was terrible, the main reason I left.
Pros

They pay ludicrously well, but expect you to live for work. Supervisors will hold it against you if you can't cover a 12 hour shift at a moments notice.
Pros
Lots of money
Cons
Treated poorly

Worked for Sonoco after an acquisition of another leading company. Enjoyed my time there. It was hard work, but very rewarding, and if you worked hard you received recognition for it. If there was a location closer to where I live I would consider working there again.
Pros
Busy, the days went fast; formed great relationships with coworkers, Learned quite a bit about the industry!
Cons
Can't think of any at the moment

I enjoy working with all of my associates. Management is very supportive of any additional training required. They are also open to discuss any progressive ideas and will suggest any further contacts to reach out to to help support your ideas. What I enjoyed the most is being trusted to work independently to achieve a satisfied customer and a further return on business.
