    I worked at Owens-Illinois full-time

    Pros

    The pay is wonderful and they provide food on holidays.

    Cons

    The management is so destructive and controversial. They will tell you the rules and regulations but then turn around and break their rules. Next, they yell at you if you break them, even if they tell you to.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better and commit to your regulations and enforce them on ALL levels of management.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. The people are passionate about what they do.

    More of a challenge than a con, but costs are very tightly controlled as you would expect in a lean organization.

    Pros

    Fair Salary and benefits package

    Cons

    Organization changes are frequently made leaving everyone with no clear direction on what their role is. This being said nobody knows what each other are doing or supposed to do so it ends up they do what ever they want. Very chaotic, no true guidance and no clear succession planning.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on truly getting to know what people do before implementing change.

    I have been working at Owens-Illinois full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In our area the pay is outstanding, and until this year the benefits have been extraordinary. It is union labor, and we just joined the steel workers union.

    Cons

    Until you can bid for a day shift only job, you will be on a rotating shift. 1st shift (5 days on 2 days off) rotate to 3rd shift (5 days on 2 days off)rotate to 2nd shift (5 days on 1 day off). That is the order of the shifts that you will rotate through as a shift employee.
