I worked at Owens-Illinois full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good 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.

Cons

Some 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 Management

Take 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.

    I worked at Owens-Illinois full-time

    Pros

    Great potential. Rank and File have passion.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership has lost touch with the market and reality. Lack of strategic direction. Aging facilities and lack of capital. Poor quality standards. Lack of customer care at senior level.

    Advice to Management

    Replace yourselves as you are driving the company into the ground. Revisit investment strategy. Listen more. Stop acting like there is nothing wrong.


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

    I have been working at Owens-Illinois full-time (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 of management at the plant level, old facilities and no money to invest or repair them with, just check the stock price over the past few years...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Stroken, Scripter...Stop hiring outsiders who dont understand how a plant functions and promote the good talent you have in house. Quit making constant changes to structure and let things mature. Dont try and make every plant operate the same way.
