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.

Difficult to balance safety with production goals
Owens-Illinois is a company with many challenges to balance workplace safety with production goals. Management means to prioritize the health and safety of its employees but often finds themselves at odds with production goals.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Safety vs production goal balance

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.

I resent this. I like my privacy. I should not be forced in to providing information of any kind that i do not wish to.
Not giving me the option stinks.

mauvaises conditions de travail
A fuir certe le salaire est bien mais formation trop courte et bâclé pour le poste. A peine arrivé il faut tout connaître c'est chacun pour soi aucun esprit d'équipe avec des horaires de dingue surtout en interim plus de vie perso boss jusqu'a 50h par semaine et a peine 24h de repos. Aucune reconnaissance pour son personel
Pros
Salaire
Cons
Ambiance, conditions de travail, respect du personnel

Good
I enjoyed working for this company. The working conditions are hot in the summer but that is with any manufacturing job. I have been retired for 2 years so i am unsure how it is now.

Management portrays a guise of health & safety...
The rotating swing shifts on a weekly basis take a negative toll on human health, happiness and relationships. The working environment engendered by management, takes a very serious toll on human health (i.e. high levels of microwave frequencies emitted from numerous commercial WiFi transmitters located throughout the facility). Many employees have discernible problems (i.e. joint pain, premature ageing issues, psychological/behavioral issues, etc...) Despite bringing such issues to managements attention, nothing discernible was done to change said circumstances. Be warned, the amount of electrical radiation inside this facility is extremely high and causes oxidative stress on biological entities. In addition, the company makes you aware that asbestos is present within the facility, so enter at your own risk!

Fair workplace
Great work environment and has a very family like oriented work force. Fair pay and has flexible hours and a very organized and safe warehouse would recommend working there
