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.

Good place to work if you don’t mind giving up your free time. In my role the phone rang all hours of the day and night and had to be answered. We were compensated for our time, but cost too much in my personal life.
Pros
Free lunch, good pay, good benefits
Cons
Expected to take calls all hours of the night, even on vacation.

Union environment, was very difficult to hold people accountable. Not enough support from upper management, and human resources. Shift work, with rotating schedules from days to nights.
Pros
Good pay

Long days, crazy schedule

The pay is great. 401k,medical,dental and pension plan are good also. Management has changed in the last 5 years. Advancement isn't easy to obtain even with experience.

12 hour shifts of fast passed work. Supervisor snaps easily and the palletizer job can be stressful.

O-I is a global glass container manufacturing company with a plant in Auburn, NY that I am affiliated with. I have enjoyed my experience at O-I thus far and hope for a promising future. I would recommend employment at O-I to others.

This was a nice place to work for and always busy. I was a temp and knew I would not be hired on, I was sent to get a job done and that's what I did. The hardest part is to get everyone to work as a team, I learned to stay on top of thing or they would fall through the cracks fast.
Pros
Pay was good
Cons
No one wanted to work as a team

Work constantly changes depending on a number of factors (which, as a matter of fact, is good!) Sorting, packaging/repackaging, QC and cleanup.

Learned the many processes and checks needed in a manufacturing environment. A lot required to produce a successful and profitable product.


Management was mediocre. Union/salary not always in the best interest of the worker. Conflict of interests/turns a blind eye. Sustaining true professional individuals on payroll below standards.


Truthfully, job security a daily issue. Too many if's, when's, who's, outsourcing.


Certainly, lot's of time off, the pay was terrific and the benefits are outstanding!
Pros
benefits, pay, time off
Cons
mediocre overhead both union/salary, unprofessional/amateurish individuals hired on
