    Former Employee - Palletizer Operator in Orlando, FL (US)

    I worked at Sonoco Products full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Money. Medical, dental, vision, life Insurance. 401k. Opportunity to advance. Yep.

    Cons

    Working many weekends, you can be forced to work overtime 12 hrs a day, 7 days a week if need-be. Working with some people who just don't give a turd and do the bare minimum. Growing distant from your family, growing old making money without enjoying life. Financial compensation isn't worth that, to me at least.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the hipocracy, ya'll.

    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.
