Reynolds Consumer Products – Why Work For Us?

Two of the most trusted household brands, Reynolds® and Hefty®, joined together as Reynolds Consumer Products in 2010. While the establishment of this new company made it official, the truth is that Reynolds® and Hefty® products have been found side-by-side in the kitchens of American families for more than three generations.

The creation of both the Reynolds® and Hefty® brands is the direct result of American ingenuity mixed with a bit of elbow grease. Reynolds Wrap® foil was invented after aluminum was no longer needed for military use; and became a new staple for American kitchens. Hefty® waste bags were first developed with excess material from an early plastics innovator, creating another household essential.


Reynolds Consumer Products offers to help people conquer everyday household chaos. We are passionate about achieving our goals and excel at quality and service by driving innovation, taking out cost, and championing our categories. Our consumers, customers, and employees trust us to deliver what we promise.

Reynolds Consumer Products

We are proud of our well-known and trusted brands, including Reynolds Wrap® foil, Hefty® trash bags, slider bags, and disposable tableware, and in 2014, we added Alcan® foil, Canada’s top foil brand. Our goal is to continue to earn your trust and offer new products and product improvements that make running a household easier.

How we do it is just as important as the products we sell. Integrity is extremely important to us; we drive results through combining innovation and teamwork. A majority of our products are made in the U.S. and Canada, and the safety of our employees is our top priority. We put safety first, always.

Our customer relationships are based on a long history of trust. We work to make not only our individual products successful; but provide insights to our retailers that help improve the product category.

We're looking for people that will help us reach our goals, including professionals in marketing, HR, IT, operations, logistics/supply chain, finance, and more.


We are committed to a diverse workforce as an equal opportunity employer. Our benefits program for employees is competitive, offering medical, prescription, dental, vision, long-term disability, short-term disability, flexible spending accounts for medical and dependent day care, basic and supplemental life insurance, AD&D insurance, 401(K) and an employee assistance program.

Reynolds Consumer Products encourages its employees in their efforts to bring positive change to the communities in which they live and work.  By volunteering, we contribute to a healthier and more sustainable community and create opportunities to develop teamwork and leadership skills.

    I worked at Reynolds Consumer Products full-time (More than a year)


    Reynolds was an excellent place to work. The members of management were all very professional and approachable, my unit manager was one of the best leaders I ever worked for, and everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The family type atmosphere was excellent and even the director of operations remembered my son’s birthday. From the top down the folks at Hefty care.


    I left for family reasons, were it not for those I could have seen myself staying for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Reynolds Consumer Products (Lake Forest, IL) in February 2018.


    Submitted my resume information and details online. The website to submit the resume was not working properly, but it was fixed the following day. Had a 30 minute phone screening several days after with the recruiter. Had two on-site interviews with the hiring VP and phone interview with other functional VPs. On-site interviews were one-on-one.
