I worked at Plastipak Holdings full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The pay was really good and there was always opportunity for overtime

Cons

12 hr shifts, freaky schedule working two or three days and off two or three days. Far too much overtime, at times working 84 hrs a week. Management trying to armchair quarterback work processes.

Advice to Management

Get out on the floor and actually work the lines to find out the real problems instead of listening to people (that also don't work on the lines) as to what the issues are.

    Pros

    If you like overtime, this isn't a bad place to work. The extra hours help offset the low hourly pay. They do a lot when it comes to improving worker safety.

    Cons

    Favoritism is in abundance at this place, it is almost like a high school environment. Managers and team leaders can't keep secrets, they tell one person and before you know it the whole place knows about something they shouldn't know. Very hot in the summer, very cold in the winter. Lack of climate control also makes the job more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your long-tenured employees, and give them the chance to advance. Don't believe every rumor that you hear, most of it is bogus and do a better job of researching facts before terminating employment.
