    I worked at Rexam full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    have no positive thing to say

    Cons

    I worked there for 3 months and got laid off, I had to ask them several times to pay my expense report, and they paid a majority of it after several months and phone calls. My plant was in Newark, the plant was operated on a shoestring and later closed. Terrible business acumen. They were taken hydraulic fluid from one machine and putting it in another..

    good luck
