    Current supervisor...recent promotion!!

    I have been working at AEP Industries

    Pros

    If you are willing to learn, there are very experienced people who are willing to teach. The company does promote a family atmosphere because of the close proximity of the workers and the hours they spend there.

    Cons

    Some people are discouraged about advancement because most of the higher paid jobs are held by individuals who remain there till retirement. Many employees are also discouraged to learn anything else about the company because of the starting pay scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote advancement to the employees. Let them see there is an upside to learning the company from the ground up. The plant manager has awesome ideas that require more focus from the employees.

    I have been working at AEP Industries full-time

    Pros

    The employees make the company. The guys working the production line are top notch, hard-working, and dedicated to producing a quality product.

    Cons

    Corporate headquarters is located on the east coast and has little to any concept of life in the southern plains region. They are too controlling; one size does not fit all. They should physically visit each of the plant operations and get a feel for the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let loose of the reigns a little. Allow the site locations to develop their own internal forms and handle matters using social milieus appropriate to the culture. Be certain the most recent revisions are on the main portal for access. HR Managers shouldn't have to beg for information; it should be readily accessible and current.

    Pros

    None! Other then the fact that they are very lenient on overtime pay. If you want the overtime, then you'll get it.

    Cons

    Bad environment, Corporate doesn't know anything about anything. Don't expect a pay raise ever. Not to mention its over run with immigrants

    I have been working at AEP Industries full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The location (Mountain Top PA) was a major factor for taking the job.

    Cons

    Expectations were unreasonable for the minimal training received. I should have listened to the outsiders that recommended NOT to take a job at this plant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more time to learn the operation of the plant.

    Hostile work environment

    Former Employee - Logistics Specialist in Waxahachie, TX

    I worked at AEP Industries full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company has a great product, and is a growing company. Except for some positions, some do not qualify.

    Cons

    It was not a professional work environment, poor training if the Supervisor did not like you. She had done this to a lot of others before me. It was a hostile and bullying type atmosphere, making it very hard to do your job in a healthy manner, professional and accurate. HR and management needs to learn more about ones who are bullying and how it effects the victims. But most of all, how it effects the company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The issues continued for some time, making the problems only worst. Until she continued to set me up and look bad with lies. Did they not know she would continue until she could set me up. I take pride in my job and as an employee, I work hard and give my all, and try to do my work the best and accurate as I can, I am very serious about this. I could not continue to work under these conditions, it was effecting my job and health.

    Pros

    North America's number one plastic films manufacturer. They are leaders in their industry. There's opportunity for growth due to their many locations.

    Cons

    I worked in production and logistics - the hours are long, hot in the summer/freezing in the winter. Policy seems to change weekly. Often the policy change inhibited our ability to complete tasks in a timely manner. The result was always mandated overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is the key. It needs to be multidirectional - down, up, and lateral. Your employees at the front line are the eyes and ears of the company. You should pay more attention to that.

    Pros

    AEP is a very large stable company in the plastic manufacturing industry. Readily increasing productivity.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of advancement opportunities. Company allows family members to work under other family members which causes different sets of rules for those employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not allow family members to supervise other family members. Set up as they work under someone else, but this is not the case.
