I worked at Silgan Containers full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I was able to hide out there collecting a paycheck while looking for something better. I came in to the job without the intention to slack off but, after getting yelled at and threatened by the management I just came in punched in and did the absolute bare minimum to get by. I just let the machines run and let all of the crap we made flow through to the customers. I figured it served them right to loose the contracts.

Cons

It is still a hideous place to work and really dirty. The company was trying to automate more workers jobs while I was there. The management style is really poor.

Advice to Management

Try respect first. In the end if we do a poor job your boss doesn't make any money. Enjoy your layoff as well. Looks like the "chicken finally came home to roost"

    I have been working at Silgan Containers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had to argue just to get FMLA (family leave) after my daughter was born. I can't believe that I was asked "if I had the baby". Totally disrespectful of others.

    Cons

    I can't think of a single good thing other than the pay is higher than the other plants in the area. Mostly because the managers have run off anyone that could get a job someplace else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your job here as long as you can! Most other places wouldn't put up with it.

    I have been working at Silgan Containers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At least its a paycheck

    Cons

    too many to list here

    Advice to Management

    Fix your production efficiency by getting new management. Workers should unionize this plant to keep workers treated consistantly by management. HR is only puppeting upper management and covering up problems.
