    Pros

    The culture of the company is great. Also, the fact that it is privately owned means a world of difference.

    Cons

    Right now Dart is going through many changes since their acquisition of Solo Cup, which means that everyone is very busy, but there is light at the end with things beginning to level off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend that Dart continue to strive to be the industry standard of excellence regarding products, but also hold that same standard regarding process.

    Pros

    Pay was worth it, I worked many hours but it paid off when I got my check. The work was not too hard.

    Cons

    Co-workers could be hostile at times. It was hard to move up once you got to a middle position. Had to work on some off days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Control the attitudes of some workers.

    Pros

    NONE. It's a job until something else comes along.

    Cons

    Where to begin...Senior management sucks. Don't care one single bit about the employees. Favortism runs rampant. If they like you, you could set the place on fire and still have a job. If they don't like you, you could extinguish a fire and save lives & they'd find a reason to fire you. Attitudes and morale at the lowest I've ever seen. No one wants to help anybody. They cram safety meetings down our throats to please the corporate gods, but then they let us run machines that leak oil, pipes that leak water (around electrical boxes) and say, "oh, we'll take care of that at the next shutdown. Extra help for every other job position except production. Production runs on a skeletal crew. Yet when numbers are reached, it's due to all these other departments, not production. Maintenance is a joke. 24/7 plant, ALL maintenance is tucked into their little beddies by 8pm. Need to call one in? Kind of hard to do when company phones are left at the plant. Excuses for maintenance, daily. Production can't get a break. Back to wonderful (gag) senior management. All management gone by 3:00pm on a Friday. Poor ethic values. Sneak behind middle management's back to get what they want. employees just viewed videos by the Dart family about their "Core Values", honesty, integrity...etc. I thought the employees were going to vomit. What hypocracy. Wages the lowest in the area. Temp services send their good people to other manufacturing plants because they pay better. we get the ones on drugs, on probation, or facing criminal charges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do an "Undercover Boss" episode at some of your plants. You'd get an earful. Better yet, just come to one of your plants on a Friday night, stay the weekend and talk to your employees. Make sure it is an unannounced visit, or the senior management fools will be crawling all over your backside putting their spin on how the plant is. Our numbers look good & it's NOT because of the senior management team. It's your workers. Give them a reason to want to stay here. Pay them a decent wage. Quit slapping them in the face & start patting them on the back!

    Pros

    Awesome Management, great benefits, hands down best people to work with. *I worked 3rd shift*

    Cons

    You have to pay attention to A LOT of things 24/7. Don't waste the companies time if you are lazy or not ready to give 100% to the job daily. If you mess up everyone you work with gets in trouble. A small mistake can cost company thousands of dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work on getting team spirit up. If you can do that and make people want to get there daily production numbers up you could see a drastic change in positive attitude and production numbers across the board.
