Rotating shift destroys families, health and sanity and that particular backwards weekly rotating is the absolute worse one there is. The retirement plan used to be ridiculously excellent but that’s because you didn’t retire from there, you died before 65. It’s also dangerous, people missing fingers and proud of it, if outside companies come in to service machines they wear hazmat suits with contained breathing apparatus and once a year you get a mandatory chest x-Ray, what does that tell you?
Pros
The benefits and pay are the best you could possibly get in Waco.
Cons
Kiss your family, your health and your happiness goodbye.

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

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.

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.

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.

I had the opportunity to learn about different aspects of mineral product manufacturing, and quality control. In addition to these, learning how to operate the IS forming machines at a basic level was very rewarding. Perhaps the most enjoyable part of the job, was collaborating with teammates during production shifts.

Absolutely no training culture. You are thrown on a line or machine and expected to know what to do. If it were not for the other operators taking time away from their job to help you would have to learn it on your own and are bound to have problems. The one so-called training instructor constantly rolls her eyes when you ask her a question. No personality what so ever. The supervisors are expecting people to do a job who have had little to no training. Starting pay and benefits are good but between poor training and rotating shifts I and others are already looking for other employment opportunities.
Pros
Met a lot of nice coworkers
Cons
Extremely poor training

It's a good paying job that is fairly secure. Major down side is 7day rotating shift. The management isn't the greatest, there is a real lack of communication and little regard for the union.

It was a very good job for me. I learned to run an electric packing robot which i enjoyed. it was basically the same routine each and everyday. Made sure the robot ran smoothly and made sure there werent any defects in the plastic molds that were being made. Overtime was the real perc of the job there was always overtime. Coworkers and management were great, benefits also. The hardest part was the company had to close because it was a pretty good job at the time for me.
Pros
room for advancement within the company
Cons
rotating shifts
