    I worked at Niagara Bottling full-time

    Pros

    Enjoyed working there the co-workers were great nice family atmosphere

    Cons

    Management needs to work on their people skills if you have leads in charge of employees they should actually know their job the employees shouldn't have to teach the lead what to do my daughter was in a car accident I had to leave work early and go to the hospital I was written up for that I was told by a jar if it would have been her funeral then I would not have been written up

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to have people classes learn to treat your employees with respect you can't degrade your employees and expect them to break their back for you so you can get your bonuses

    I have been working at Niagara Bottling full-time

    Pros

    Very friendly crew with lots of overtime available

    Cons

    terribly disorganized, management constantly cracking the whip, mandatory overtime, non-existent training program, rampant "tribal knowledge" hoarding to ensure job security

    Advice to Management

    establish that "tribal knowledge" is unacceptable, create a structured training program to ensure personnel are learning their jobs through education not "trial by fire"

    I have been working at Niagara Bottling full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not to many pro's on working with this company except it's close to my house & takes me 10 min to get ther

    Cons

    Management is nogood
    No organization in department & no "company rule" enforcement. No position changes unless your liked. Your hard working good work ethics are not recognized. Much work little pay! Especially for the climate you have to work in and management has no consideration for that!
    In my department they cut out overtime 👎🏾 and overtime is needed cause you can't make it on what they pay. 2x's a month you get paid so the next 7-14 days your broke. Healthcare is high priced for an individual and doesn't pay much on your medical bills.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees for the hard work & great work they do,raise pay rates & get teams that will work together not tear each other down

    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.
