Pros

The people that work at Silgan are great. The location is very convenient and the offices are very nice. Overall it is a nice place to work.

Cons

Not enough recognition when a job is done well. Employees really just want to be recognized and appreciated and that is somewhat lacking at times.

    Pros

    people are friendly, 401k, long short work weeks

    Cons

    management was terrible and prejudice, personnel was nonexistent, pay, 12 hour days, threats of closing


  2. Fair work for 12 hour shifts, fast paced and unrelenting heat doesn't quite even out the wages though.

    Pros

    The company itself offers fair benefits, typical insurances on the lower end of the scale that are affordable. Veteran or Enlisted personnel friendly and cooperative, its not a deterrent to get hired on as is the case with some companies, if you are in the Reserves.

    Cons

    Twelve Hour Shifts (in production), normally I wouldn't consider it a con however due to the heat of the ovens and fast paced environment it is really easy to find yourself exhausted. And, in most cases, you're required to work as a temp prior to fulltime hire. Which is not a guarantee so minimum wage or close to is the starting salary for an undetermined amount of time. Otherwise a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop using temp services. Understandably its a difficult job and temp services are a reasonable way to " weed out " those who can't cut it ( Myself included ). People will be far more inclined to tough it out with better incentives, which are not possible as a temp.
