Excellent place to work for those who don’t mind physical labor. This is not a place for the faint at heart. The only complaints you ever here are from those who feel they should be compensated for poor performance. Management is very supportive, knowledgeable and will to help those who want more than just a job, but are seeking a career.

I got hired through a temp agency and didn't know much about company procedures. They showed me around and the next day I was on the grind. It was a humid environment, lots of grunt work. Our job was to print beer/cold drink boxes and stack them onto pallets along with trash disposal and clean up. Often times the conveyer belt would get jammed, or the copy machines wouldn't print right. Other than that it was pretty repetitive.

Stackers are paid less. They do the most general labor compared to other positions. Doing good gets you noticed but little mistakes can get you in trouble. Management is changing since there’s a new GM in the plant. The Production manager goes out on the floor and has that attitude where you can tell is fake by acting like you matter. Since there’s new management, rules are changing so don’t let the PM see you standing around for just a few seconds because you’ll automatically get in trouble. Instead, act as if you’ve been busy at all times during your shift. Best advice I can give to anyone planning to work in the Tulare, CA area. “Work relaxed during the night but when morning comes around, act as if you’ve been working the best so the mangers arriving in the morning don’t think you’re lazy.” A thing I did learned from working in this area was the “put up with the work and shut up,” saying. As a stacker you will do a lot and get little to no credit out of it. You will see employees doing things they’re not supposed to be doing. Don’t advise the supervisors because remember. You’re a new hire and your co-workers have been there longer. So in the end your opinion doesn’t matter because you can be replaced easily. Both A and B shifts which are Morning/ Day have the best workers and helpers. C - Shift recently got a new supervisor and does good in making sure his workers stay on task but try not to be on the second line. From experience, the workers on that line aren’t as helpful as line 1. So finally we have D - Shift. What can I say, you have the most chilliest supervisor - more...
Pros
Lots of hours, time and a half after the first 8 hours, down times
Cons
Paid only a few cents over minimum wage, not so great management, temperature inside summer time

Poor management, claims to focus on safety which sacrifices production and they will get mad for the trade off. Do not give warning just fire you! Work here only if its your last resort

Cons

Pros

supervisors are woefully under trained in management skills and are not expected to know how to run machines they are responsible for. Mandatory OT can sometimes be communicated up to 5 minutes before your shift is expected to end.

Is a very demanding job both hourly and work wise. They provide you with every opportunity to grow and move up in the production fields. Pay you according to your knowledge and work ethic. Definitely a place to pursue in the corrugated field.

Not a bad place to work but we do have employes that need to clean up after themselves better and it would be nice to see the supervisors come and check on products being ran on a machine more. Seems like they are more secretaries having to to numerous safety audits than supervisors, I do have to say they do pretty good considering all the extra responsibilities that's been put on them!
Pros
My coworkers are great, nice breakroom and sodas are 50 cents! They do have 401k plan, and have a decent life insurance policy!
Cons
Only ten min. for lunch and the insurance is a joke!

The hours are there no doubt in that its just the pay wasn't really worth the hours you put in. Machine operators are on there cell phones all the time letting the machine run on pure blind luck "if it runs it runs" while lower end people like myself get stuck cleaning the mess the machine makes. When I had a problem I could never find the supervisor it's pretty much your on your own.
Pros
The Days off
Cons
Long hours pay did not match hours worked
