    Former Employee - Mold Wheeler in Salem, NJ

    I worked at Ardagh Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were both good. Plenty of overtime available as well. As long as you showed up to work on time every day you had a job for life.

    Cons

    Management was rude, lacked serious people skills. I understand it's a factory but the employees are still human beings and should be treated as such. Wasted time and money on painting the floors when most of the equipment was old/outdated.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
  3. Very narrow minded

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Ardagh Group

    Pros

    The salary that they offer to all their employees including the custodial staff is an equal rate for that section of the factory they work in.

    Cons

    The corruption of the Union conspiring with HR to enforce a shared agenda keeps the concept of equal opportunity obsolete. Keeping working conditions at a hazardous level is only possible through a corrupt Union.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a college education.
