Wingate Packaging Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Wingate Packaging is a paper distributor company in Washington Court House, Ohio.
A former employee shared the experience of working there, "Wingate Packaging's pay is very low and has a stressful work environment. Employees there do not get treated with respect and are not appreciated. You are working almost 10 hour a days and are not paid the amount that should be fair based on what you do on a daily basis."
Press Operator (Former Employee) says"10 hour work days M-Th. Almost every week you are notified on THURSDAY that you have a MANDATORY shift the next day (Fri) and sometimes even Sat. No room for advancement. Outdated equipment & technology making it IMPOSSIBLE to meet goal requirements. Senior Leadership practices goals & priorities that represent an "Employees are Expendable" culture."
Lead Pressman (Current Employee) says"Very stressful place to work. They do not keep there equipment in good working order and then management holds employee's accountable for poor quality, waste and downtime. Employee's are afraid of being yelled at by management. Cons: They do not have a payroll sevice so you dont always get your pay stub on consistent basis."
Slave (Current Employee) says"Micromanagement by the parent company Sugar Creek is done through spineless, no-talent upper management. Croneyism is rampant, and upper management promotes their unqualified relatives. Their are no standards to pay, or production practices. Cons: Too many to mention..."
Warehouse/data entry (Former Employee) says"very low pay and stressful environment. Employees there do not get treated with respect and are not appreciated. You are working almost 10 hour days and are not paid the amount that should be fare based on what you do on a daily basis. Cons: management sucks"
N/A (Former Employee) says"Start you off with low pay and a probation period. No pay raise if you meet or exceed expectations for the year. High stress because they're more interested in production instead of employee satisfaction. No annual performance reviews and they only track production numbers. Management seems like they have no idea what they're doing. They make horrible decisions. Three paid days off and no sick time and if you stay for one year you finally get your vacation time which they say is 7 days paid but it only counts the days you would work so it's more like 5 days off and they can call you in the other couple days. Supervisors don't listen to employees and only do what's "best for the company." This is definitely not the place to work at. Cons: Low Pay"
full time-fold and glue (Current Employee) says"I like working at Wingate. You will definitely get in some overtime which makes for a good paycheck. My co-workers are great. Cons: short breaks"
Flexo Press operator (Current Employee) says"empty promises, no room for advancement, everyone there is unhapppy, the list goes on Cons: no raises, no vaca time, poor decisions, the list goes on"
Packer and feeder on the bobst line (Current Employee) says"Honestly, don't even waste your time, this company is worried more about quantity than quality, terrible management and things go on that shouldn't. A certain operater runs the machine terribly and overworks his workers,very terrible person to work with."
printing press operator (Former Employee) says"there were not honest with me from the start.first they tell me i am on a certain shift then decide to change after i had already started which was very disturbing"
Lead Packer (Former Employee) says"Great job....managament needs training on how to treat people....properly. Cons: You got a problem...dont take it to management because they will terminate you!"
Plate Mounting (Current Employee) says"Come in expecting for today to be the day when you will get to do the job promised or at least hired for. Only to find you are doing a different job every day just to fill in. Co Workers feel the same still waiting after a year or more just to be non temp workers and utilize their qualifications."
Press Operator (Current Employee) says"My day starts with a hour and 15 minute drive to work. once there at 7 am I fire up my press and wait for instructions on what im going to be doing. after a hour or so plaits will arrive and ink will be filled by other employees. At 9 am my supervisor arrives and approves what im doing for the day and I run my numbers till 4:45. the last 15 minutes of my day we have a meeting about the days production and safety accomplishments. Cons: long drive to get there"
Line Operator (Current Employee) says"There is no pay scale here.but is a vary clean and somewhat relaxed place to work also temp contoled year around. So if you work in a hot place now it work be a great change."
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) says"People that worked at a Printing and Publishing business that closed they were treated as special cause when they were hired they got 2 weeks vacation while the others had to be there 5 years to get 2 weeks"
Press Operator (Current Employee) says"Good place to work but it is very stressful,good people to work with but some supervisors play favorites with employees.You only get 2 five minute breaks and a 20 minute lunch"
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) says"The work environment is very fast paced. I enjoyed staying busy. My only problem with working there were the other employees. No one really went out of their way to make you feel welcomed. The pay is ok I think it should be a little more."
