    I worked at Sonoco Products full-time


    Stable company over all, Time-off, Good coworkers


    Leadership in Sonoco Display & Packaging is myopic. Cutting pay for dedicated salespeople who toil to get and maintain accounts. Freezing designer pay and outsourcing IT lowering morale and inhibiting effectiveness of staff. 100% turnover in sales leadership and 80% churn in over all sales due to cuts in pay and politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot right a ship by throwing your experienced crew overboard.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Sonoco Products.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview followed by a panel style interview on-site. Traditional behavioral-based questions. No case questions. The Sonoco work environment seems very traditional and corporate. The people are all nice and friendly. The interview was very conversational, and did not feel like a grill session. The interviewers injected their questions as follow-ups to the conversation we were having.
