I worked at Silgan Containers

Pros

good co-workers, great salary, good benefits, most jobs are not that hard for what they pay, union job makes it a plus.

Cons

unfair supervision, lots of between workers drama, management not fair when it comes to individuals with issues causing them to miss work, not understanding company when it comes to physical disablities, no jobs for people with any disablities even temporary ones.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

make supervision more fair to hard workers and crack down on the lazy ones. give more to ones that are willing to train and learn more jobs instead of making them feel punished for wanting to learn. be more understanding when health issues arise with employees, especially employees who have been there long term.

    Pros

    good hourly employees and a union one can work with. My fellow supervisors are also a great group of people and a more than willing to help each other.

    Cons

    18th century management attitudes. They treat the supervisors and employees like serfs resorting to intimidation and bullying as "management" techniques. Someone needs to "clean house" in regard to the management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of senior management (dept head and above) in Evansville IN needs to be fired along with the HR manager. They resort to intimidation and bullying as "management" techniques.

    Pros

    Good work experience for a college kid, as well as a near guarantee of a supervisor position with a decent starting salary when you graduate college, as long as you show up and do your job as asked.

    Cons

    Takes a long time for an intern to truly be involved with what really matters, "The machines and how they work"
    Mandatory 50 hour weeks when you don't have class and little to no days off.
