It was Real, It was NICE, but not real nice!

Warehouse (Former Employee) Windsor, CO

ProsGood wages and benefits. Majority of the workers were great to work with! Good shift supervisor, he knows his crew and doesn't let anything slide.

ConsSome people you worked with didn't pull their weight (mainly on other shifts), the warehouse supervisor let a lot of things slide and did not communicate well. If he didn't care for a person, he/she was on his " Bad List" and tried to make it rough for them until they were gone. Always have to watch your back! What comes around, goes around!

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the word of the shift supervisor that knows his workers and not the warehouse supervisor, who has an ax to grind with someone he doesn't care for. Make sure only the shift supervisor writes employee reviews and not have "other supervisors" over ride and twist them so a good employee is gone when other worst employees should have left.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Chaotic decisions made by top level Execs who have no idea what we do on a daily basis..

    Manager (Current Employee) Lapel, IN

    I have been working at Owens-Illinois full-time for less than a year

    Pros: Good salary, lots of challenges to gain experience from Cons: An unwilling to change workforce and union, Execs who dont understand the plant level business, most staff constantly looking for way out, ever revolving door… Advice to Senior Management: Get rid of Stroken, Scripter...Stop hiring outsiders who dont understand how a plant functions and promote the good talent you have… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
