Flexsol Packaging Corp. of Pompano Beach experience report

  • 11.Dec 2015
  • Employee

Too many hours

2.56

Company Culture

They have a honesty policy but nobody seemed to follow it.

Support from management

Couldn't keep a supervisor.

Teamwork

Fellow employees were mostly friendly unless you did something they didn't like.

Freedom to work independently

Call ins were more frequent for me. I think it was because I lived closer than anyone else.

Internal Communication

It seemed to me that the only communication was negative communication.

Gender Equality

There were very few women but different cultures were employed.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Most of the work is too hard for older people unless you want a manager position.

Career Development

There was some training but mostly you just did your job.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay is low, insurance high.

Office / Work Environment

It was hot work but it was in a plastic bag making factory.

Environmental Friendliness

Flexsol occasionally has plastic pellet spills outside and keeps covering them with rock. Not sure about fair trade.

Work-Life Balance

With the nature of maintenance, time off was a premium and we could take off if needed. Apparently, families weren't taken into consideration.

Company Image

Most people want to quit but can't find anything else.

Job Security

While I was employed there
There were a few maintenance guys that were fired for different things.

Handicapped Accessibility

It is not a place for the disabled unless it's in the office area.

Challenging Work

Some of my work was recognized but my ideas were trashed.

Inclusive / Diverse

No, I got the impression it was their way or the highway.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more maintenance technicians to cover shift work and day maintenance.

What I like about the company

Like a great house, location, location, location. It was less than two miles away.

What I dislike about the company

Getting called in all hours of the night and nearly every weekend instead of calling the person who was supposed to be taking calls.
