    I have been working at Niagara Bottling (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for the area.

    Cons

    Not an equal opportunity employer. It does not matter how long you have worked there or how much experience you have. What seems to mater is who you become buddy buddy and best friends with to work your way up and get the training needed to do your job. We do machine rebuilds yearly on the machines and that's how you learn how the components of the machine come apart and go back together. Some mechanism are involved in every rebuild and sent all over the country for training yet others as myself are not included in any of this.

    It seem as though the senior Factory focus mechanic runs the maintenance crew. If your not in his click you get nothing. If your his buddy and do favors outside the work place you get what ever you want. I talked with my supervisor about this and was told as long as I get my paycheck that's all that matters. This is total bull crap we should all get the same training opportunity and then be judged on our performance after that. With over 30 years in blow molding with some management experience it is a shame to see this happening in such a big company.

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone the same treatment and training . It a shame that this behavior is overlooked by the top managers.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers
    Good learning opportunity - you get to learn much more than you would at other big firms
    Great CEO and Senior Management

    Cons

    Terrible mid-management - too many inexperienced people holding manager and up positions
    Poor compensation - sub par to industry/Greater LA standards
    Minimal yearly raises
    Bad work life balance - depending on your department

    Hear your employees and act on it, so many reviews have and continue to mention sub-par compensation.

    I worked at Niagara Bottling full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are amazing. Everyone works hard and puts in the extra hours with very little complaint. The company provide extra bonus for working the weekends (lunch and extra hours off with pay).

    Top managements are very vague on how they want to do things.
