I worked at Owens-Illinois full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good wages and benefits. Majority of the workers were great to work with! Good shift supervisor, he knows his crew and doesn't let anything slide.

Cons

Some people you worked with didn't pull their weight (mainly on other shifts), the warehouse supervisor let a lot of things slide and did not communicate well. If he didn't care for a person, he/she was on his " Bad List" and tried to make it rough for them until they were gone. Always have to watch your back! What comes around, goes around!

Advice to Management

Take the word of the shift supervisor that knows his workers and not the warehouse supervisor, who has an ax to grind with someone he doesn't care for. Make sure only the shift supervisor writes employee reviews and not have "other supervisors" over ride and twist them so a good employee is gone when other worst employees should have left.

    I have been working at Owens-Illinois part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This was just a temporary summer job for me. I loved the job and the pay was excellent.

    Cons

    SHIFT WORK! The temperatures got to be ridiculously hot in the summer but can't complain because I wasn't in the hot end.

    I worked at Owens-Illinois full-time

    Pros

    Great potential. Rank and File have passion.

    Cons

    Senior Leadership has lost touch with the market and reality. Lack of strategic direction. Aging facilities and lack of capital. Poor quality standards. Lack of customer care at senior level.

    Advice to Management

    Replace yourselves as you are driving the company into the ground. Revisit investment strategy. Listen more. Stop acting like there is nothing wrong.
