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.

-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

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!

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.

O-I has been a great work place for me going on 21 years. My job as L.P.A allows me to take charge of line production and less stress off supervision. I would be very interested in joining other plants to troubleshoot defects and help production.

Owens Illinois is a very dangerous job. Making sure you are hydrated and constantly drinking water is the key to surviving in such hot conditions. All of my co workers were very nice and supportive. Swing shifts are not as bad as people make them out to be. Once you get the hang of them your body can adjust. The only negative thing about Owens Illinois is their HR representative.

The company is very employee safety oriented. Recognition of personnel who excel in their job are rewarded frequently. Production goals that were met monthly were celebrated.

Great pay. Hours suck at times but my biggest issue is I don't see an opportunity for blacks to move into salary positions which is extremely sad. Everything is based on the buddy system. Most people given salary jobs are guys who are friends with other salary guys whether they are capable of doing the job or not. This must change. Yet I doubt it will. I'm also positive corporate doesn't thoroughly evaluate their salary people because if they did they would learn that 60% of them should be allowed to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches

Honestly don't know how this plant is still open. Dump glass every day on every shift, reject ware constantly, management has no control over staff, favoritism throughout the plant; promoting unqualified workers instead of hiring outside qualified and educated workers. Safety is a joke. If random drug tests were done, no one would have a job. If you have small children or want to keep your family intact, stay far away from this place! Rotate shifts every 5 days and no downtime.
Pros
Pay/insurance
Cons
Management & union is a joke

OI was a summer time job for me. It opened my eyes and realized how glass bottles were made. The pay is great for being un skilled. However is was swing shift and night shift. It was also really hot at OI. OI makes glass bottles so they have a ovens making the bottles. During the summer time it was really hot.
