Great pay
The jobs here are repetitive. But the pay and benefits are great. I worked and moved up in this company fast. Great job. The swing shift is tough but when you are making 50-80,000 a year you feel like you are valued.

Horrible place to work.
Political and cut throat. No real sense about trying to make a product efficiently. plant Manager turnover created a constant sense of tension and blame as things rarely ran as they should. The root cause of problems were not addressed, only finger pointing.
Pros
Pay was ok (if you actually only worked 50 hours/week.
Cons
Too many to list

Good place to work.
Owens is a fast paced job with a lot of walking. Once you get the job down it get's better. There is several different machines that is running and you have to keep them going.

Its a job
The pay is good the work is easy but rotating shifts are the downside and if you're low on seniority be prepared for mandatory doubles with little to no advanced notice
Pros
Money
Cons
Rotating shifts

Great Pay for the jobs there, but the jobs are on an assembly line and are simple and very boring.
Great Pay for the jobs there, but the jobs are on a assembly line and are simple and very boring. Having 12 hour shifts and no job rotation make each day long.

Empresa muito focada não só em produção mais pricipalmente no bem estar dos colaboradores
Fora 18 anos entre contratos e efetivação, mas desde o inicio, todos colaboradores são tratados igualmente, praticamente tudo que consegui na minha vida foi através dessa empresa que classifico como excelente em todos os aspéctos

Culture is not female friendly
Corporate makes no serious effort to address the persistent culture of harassment. The management and leadership is overwhelmingly male. Diversity and inclusion efforts are not a priority. Support for women is lacking

job more so than career
Difficult to advance, the management needs a lot of improvement. Is run like a mom and pop shop even though its a huge manufacturing company located all over the world. Good pay and you never take work back home.

Typical day at work
My take on a normal day at work was not hard. Knew what I had to do when I came to work. Low key atmosphere to work in. I did not like getting laidoff. Wanted to really stay on there.

Good place to work.
The company is struggling to change its culture from top down driven to empowerment. Overall good place to work if you are in a plant that serves a growth area. ie. Food or liquor.
Pros
Casual environment
Cons
Poor training. Struggling with shrink market.
