    I worked at AEP Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent starting salary. This company has a lot of potential if corporate would get rid of the management, who doesn't have a clue how to run a facility.

    Cons

    Double standards! Office supervisor given power well above her job description. No communication between Manger and supervisors! A lot of favoritism ( Manger turns a blind eye to bullying). Ops Manger is clueless, yet still in charge!

    I have been working at AEP Industries full-time

    Pros

    The employees make the company. The guys working the production line are top notch, hard-working, and dedicated to producing a quality product.

    Cons

    Corporate headquarters is located on the east coast and has little to any concept of life in the southern plains region. They are too controlling; one size does not fit all. They should physically visit each of the plant operations and get a feel for the culture.

    I worked at AEP Industries

    Pros

    None! Other then the fact that they are very lenient on overtime pay. If you want the overtime, then you'll get it.

    Cons

    Bad environment, Corporate doesn't know anything about anything. Don't expect a pay raise ever. Not to mention its over run with immigrants

    I have been working at AEP Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The location (Mountain Top PA) was a major factor for taking the job.

    Cons

    Expectations were unreasonable for the minimal training received. I should have listened to the outsiders that recommended NOT to take a job at this plant.

    "Current supervisor...recent promotion!!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous 

    I have been working at AEP Industries

    Pros

    If you are willing to learn, there are very experienced people who are willing to teach. The company does promote a family atmosphere because of the close proximity of the workers and the hours they spend there.

    Cons

    Some people are discouraged about advancement because most of the higher paid jobs are held by individuals who remain there till retirement. Many employees are also discouraged to learn anything else about the company because of the starting pay scale.

    "Hostile work environment"

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AEP Industries full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has a great product, and is a growing company. Except for some positions, some do not qualify.

    Cons

    It was not a professional work environment, poor training if the Supervisor did not like you. She had done this to a lot of others before me. It was a hostile and bullying type atmosphere, making it very hard to do your job in a healthy manner, professional and accurate. HR and management needs to learn more about ones who are bullying and how it effects the victims. But most of all, how it effects the company!

    I worked at AEP Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    North America's number one plastic films manufacturer. They are leaders in their industry. There's opportunity for growth due to their many locations.

    Cons

    I worked in production and logistics - the hours are long, hot in the summer/freezing in the winter. Policy seems to change weekly. Often the policy change inhibited our ability to complete tasks in a timely manner. The result was always mandated overtime.

    I have been working at AEP Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    AEP is a very large stable company in the plastic manufacturing industry. Readily increasing productivity.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of advancement opportunities. Company allows family members to work under other family members which causes different sets of rules for those employees.
