    Pros

    Comfortable job with ok salary.

    Cons

    Management is not great to horrible. Many people have quit because of one specific manager and he continues to loom. Not much room (if any) for growth

    I worked at Crown Holdings full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits for both salaried and hourly employees.

    Cons

    The work schedules of 12 hour days are soul destroying. The overnight shift is especially brutal and most of my employees were working on only 5 or 6 hours of sleep daily. This was not good for morale, performance or health. Additionally, the plant was only staffed at 85 or 90% so we cover those open positions with overtime. This was great if you liked to work OT but it was a never ending cycle of working on your days off. Big paychecks but no life away from work. I had some great experiences and met some wonderful people at Crown, but ultimately the stress forced me to leave. It is actually a good company if you handle the stress that comes with the job.

  6. "Watch your back and make sure your white"

    1.0
     

    I worked at Crown Holdings

    Pros

    Workers were great, pay was above, benefits, gain share were good

    Cons

    Quick to move someone out because of their skin color. Will fire you over the phone or through Facebook Messenger. Work every major holiday including Thanksgiving...except management. Make sure you are safe, Unless your in management...then please turn the other direction. Superintendent doesn’t come out of his office and HR doesn’t see the production floor. Favoritism is a big issue there...it is like a buddy system. They are quick to move their buddies up. Don’t have to worry about supervisors watching you, because they tend to disappear, stay in the office and play on their phone, or you can always catch them screwing off in the millwrights shop.

    I have been working at Crown Holdings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including free medical for employees (no monthly premium). A great career path if you are a hard worker and apply yourself. People stay for a long time, and there are lots of stories of people spending their careers at Crown. The company makes products people use everyday, which makes you feel very connected to what we do here. In the current environmentally conscious world, plastic packaging has such a bad rep, that it's nice to be part of a company and product (metal packaging) that is very sustainable.

    Cons

    Can be slow to change or adopt new ideas. Updating our systems would be a big opportunity. Some long-term employees are having difficulty adapting to the open floorplan in the new office, which is standard for companies nowadays.
