Horrible!!
Leir operator. (Current Employee) –  Kalama, WA10 December 2019
If you are an older woman at OI you had better keep you're mouth shut. Don't report ANY mistreatment that you receive, as it will be turned around and used against you. Management will lie about you to HR and then you will be singled out and then lied about to the point were you are told by HR to shut up or you will be terminated. Favoritism and nepotisms to some are the norm at OI.

Shift supervisors are dishonest and horrible, They don't do their jobs because they are to busy watching inappropriate stuff on their phone and if you report them you will be fired,

Some people don't even pass their drug test but since family works there they are hired in anyways..

Pay and benefits are the only good thing about OI.

Poor
Machine Repair (Former Employee) –  Windsor, CO8 December 2019
Too much management. Top heavy and treat hourly like second hand help. They have an hr woman who acts like the plant manager and they try to change the leadership structure way too often making you feel like you have 4 different bosses at any given time. They pay well but everyone that works there hates their jobs they just know they can’t make that much money anywhere else. I am happy to not be with them anymore

Swing Shift, Constant operation changes, and revolving door of Management
Maintenance technician (Former Employee) –  Zanesville, OH5 December 2019
I worked for Owen-Illinois for nearly 10 years. You'll more than likely work swing shift as day turn jobs are few and far between and it doesn't go by seniority to get there in some departments even though it's union. Company does what they want regardless of Local Agreements with the Union. Managment constantly changes and the rules and business practices change with them. It's hard to see your family when your either working or sleeping all the time. Benefits and pay are great if you're willing to trade your life for it. I enjoyed working on the equipment and the regular people you work with on the floor.

Good place to work overall.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NC23 November 2019
Descent pay and benefits. Swing shift schedule not the greatest.Good place to work though. I have worked at a lot worse places for less money. So if you can handle rotating 1st thru 3rd shifts you can handle working there.

Hated management. Crooked!!!
WAREHOUSE AUDITOR (Current Employee) –  Toano31 October 2019
The workers are messy, management is crooked. Ive never worked in a place where management does drugs and sells the warehouse equipment but still have jobs. The benefits are great and pay is great. The swing shift is hatd on the body.
