Great Place to Work!

I have work at several places in my career. I can honestly say Southern Tea is one of the best to work for. From the great work life balance to the feeling of family, I believe the right employee can really thrive in this environment. I would highly recommend this job to anyone.

Productive workplace

Your going to work 10 til 12 hour shifts, they bring in temporary help if really needed the work pace is fast when the robots are broken. The work tempo is medicore if they are. Dont have too much outside things going on cause your expected at work 15 mins prior to your time of arrival.

Pros

Great pay

Cons

No outside life/ short breaks minimal safety

Covid-19 is here

They make sure they let you know you are very replaceable management has no idea what they're doing probably because they're overworked and can't focus on one or two task the first case of the virus nothing worked on and as the virus spread they still continue to do nothing I quit I do not advise anybody else to work here

Pros

There's nothing good I can say about this job

Cons

They will treat you like a slave, they will talk down to you, they will lie to you, this company is a joke

Needs Improvement

The company needs major improvement. There is a lot of unfairness and inequality amongst managment to employees. Lack of management was also an issue. Pay was decent, but the labor could be extreme. Not a great long term career choice.

Management has no clue how to perform maintenance functions.

Management acts nice to you until you get in the door.. and then start micromanaging you and expects you to do way more than you're capable of doing..

Pros

Most weekends off.. pay is decent.

Cons

Nobody has a clue what they're doing

Good

Good company just hard work . Management was pretty good. They are strict. The pay was worth it and they did offer overtime there. They have flexibility in schedule.

I left for closer job

Very unorganized. Job title does not reflect on actual job description. If you're hired on, be prepared to do a multitude of tasks without warning or readiness. Jobs vary within the plant. If you depend on one field for employment then you will find it difficult to work here

Hard to advance

Southern Tea is a company to work for if you want a stable job & a decent paycheck, If you want to advance your career here you won't be able to do it.

Fast-paced manufacuring company

working with scheduling daily to determine how many lines are running and staffing accordingly learned a lot about working with union learned a lot about Lean Manufacturing fast paced manufacturing the current hours I work, I do not get to see my family studying a problem, getting a team of people to collaborate, solve the problem, and see improvement to the bottom line. Working with people to encourage and train... I get a lot of enjoyment out of seeing people grow as a person and employee to add to their skills,, and become more valuable to the company

Pros

location 10miles from my house and great benefits

Cons

the shift I am currently working, I don't get to see my family

I was very disappointed with Southern Tea, LLC

After 32 years of working in maintenance, buying everything they needed to keep the plant going they did away with my job, needless to say I was very hurt.

Pros

We could buy tea at a discount

Cons

short breaks
