This is a good, stable company to work for. Benefits are good, and pay is more than what you expect for Logistics. My immediate and departmental managers do a good job sheltering the department from the wiles of upper management..

The only downside is that it is almost impossible to get promoted. I've been in the same position for almost 10 years. While some people like that, I do not. If you are good at your job then do not expect to move up.
Pros
flexible, good pay, good management.
Cons
lack of growth opportunities

O-I continues to try to be the leader in glass. Unfortunately they are struggling with competition from other packaging alternatives, a deteriorating infrastructure, high turnover due to retirements and frequent restructuring, and erosion of skill sets to make glass. On floor supervision is close to non-existent.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Lack of capital investment, poor leadership at every level, unsafe work conditions.

Having to switch shifts every week leaves you exhausted all the time, pay is good but being at work all the time and getting mandated for a 16 hour shift with little notice happens alot

Union experience

Amazing HR department

Rotating shift work is a nightmare

Old union vets have first rights to day shift options.

No flex in pay, union position everyone gets pains the same no matter the skill set or experience.
Pros
Lots of OT if wanted
Cons
Union would work hard to not work, Spend that effort in getting the job done we would have accomplished a lot

-They find good individuals and absolutely drive them into the ground in 1-2 years.

-You'll be expected to band-aid breakdowns almost indefinitely until it cant be band-aided anymore. At which point you'll get blamed for never telling management about it


-People are willing to try harder not to work and to pass on problems because there's literally nothing anyone will do about it. Employees have no fear of ever loosing their job and because of this, the people who do actually work and care get overwhelmed.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Extremely Poor Management

Previous employee. worked in forming area. Production manager attitude and knowledge poor. Let certain people sleep on job and get away with basically not working but getting paid overtime. Don't speak up or you will have a target on your back even though its a Union shop.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
Poor management and good ole boy way of doing things

This is the worst place i have ever worked. There are no advancement opportunities here unless you are extremely liked by management. If you are disliked for any possible reason you will be harassed and constantly written up. Schedule is horrible only on a different shift every week only 36 hours off between 3rd shift and 1st and only 2 weekends off per year. Definitely do not come here if your goal is to advance it does not matter how qualified you are to advance if management does not like you someone else unqualified for the job will be promoted out of spite.
Pros
good insurance, decent pay
Cons
bad management, no advancement opportunities, to many clicks and politics.

Its the only place I've ever work that when you do something good you are hated because the boss feels threatened. But this place does pay well and has good benefits and wouldn't recommend anyone pass the opportunity. As bad as the schedule and salary are its worth the headache.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
rotating shifts and politics in the work place.

The 12 hour shift is not too difficult and over a 2 week period you have 7 days off, of which overtime is often available. The work is not too difficult but can be tedious. Every other weekend you are scheduled to work Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Pros
The pay is good and overtime is available if you want it but not mandatory
Cons
The plant is filthy and loud

If you get a job on the floor and get in the union you have it made. You can get way with anything when you get in the union. Great pay for hourly employees.
