    Supervisor

    Production Supervisor (Current Employee) Whitehouse, OH

    Poor leadership but good pay

    Production Supervisor (Current Employee) Fairfield, CA

    ProsGood pay, great benefits, bonus for team performance, steady paycheck. For the most part this is a steady place to work with a consistent paycheck. Layoffs are rare and the industry is solid.

    ConsJust a number no individual rewards, extreme Nepotism, poor leadership, uneducated managers. The politics are the worse part of the job where favoritism and family get trumped over hard work and performance. Many supervisors have relatives/children who work at the facility and turn a blind eye on performance issues and personality conflicts with other employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo to college and learn some basic leadership skills. Majority of supervisors and managers have limited or no formal education, and it shows.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No work/life balance.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Birmingham, AL

    ProsGood pay and benefits for salaried employees. Especially the 401K program. Unfortunately you have to be employed for three years to be vested in the retirement program. Not too many people stay there that long.

    ConsTerrible working hours. I never worked less than 60 hrs. a week. Overwhelming workload.
    Apathetic hourly work force. A very hostile hourly employees union.
    The turnover of the salaried employees is unreal. It's a constant revolving door.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire enough people to do the job instead of relying on a few people to do the job of many. Give people the resources to do their job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    IM Function is failing and in turn failing the profit making company

    Senior Applications Analyst (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGood Salary and Bonus compensation package.

    ConsHorrible people, lot of Politics, no Work/Life balance, no Training for Employee Development, Vacation policy & FMLA sucks, IM function & HR Org are poorly managed, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn short the company is NOT investing for future growth, but is cruising on what was designed to work 1-2 decades back. No new technology initiatives and Rexam wants to be the best in the market!
    Advice to IM Management - Get rid of Global IM, its not working. Focus on your strengths and concentrate on local Business/sectors.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Supervisors are regularly subjected to verbal abuse and workplace bullying is rampant.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Winston-Salem, NC

    ProsSalary and benefits are the only benefit. Period.

    ConsMiddle management (Supervisors) are expected to achieve unrealistic production and spoilage goals all while working excessively long hours (13-15 hrs./day.) Managers routinely resort to belittling, profane language, and job threats to intimidate and bully subordinates. The issue is not only overlooked by HR, it is secretly encouraged as an "effective form of "management."

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe ONLY reason any Supervisors remain is due to the attractive compensation package. Take notice of the high turnover rate for Supervisors. At least the hourly workers have a strong Union to protect them from this type of abuse. Note: This seems to be primarily a Winston-Salem plant specific problem and is not representative of other Rexam locations.

    Good salary and benefits, terrible culture and atmosphere.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Winston-Salem, NC

    ProsSalary, bonus, and benefits. Other than this there were no pros. This is the worst company I have ever worked for and I regret changing jobs to move there.

    ConsWork/life balance is terrible. Salaried employees are expected to work at least 60 hours per week. 12-13 hours a day minimum is required. Plant management treats supervision terribly. It was common for management to curse and berate supervision.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people with respect. The workplace is not like the military.

    Good place to work.

    Production Supervisor (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat pay and benefits. Work schedule flexibility. Willing to work around schedule. 12 days of vacation equal one week. Great down to earth hourly workforce.

    ConsHigh pressure and production supervisor had most of the responsibility. Numbers meant more than safety. Always adding more responsiblity and work on supervisors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that the production supervisors have a high pressure get it done job. You need to listen to the frontline workers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
