Program Manager (Former Employee) – Manchester, MI – January 25, 2016
Very capable and intelligent group of people. Tremendous expertise in the field of preform and bottle processing. Department is very individualized, providing minimal "team" environment. The location is remote resulting in long commutes. I think it's a great company, but you must enter your position as an expect as the expectations are high, learning curve short, and teaching resources are minimal.
Great benefits, company stability
Very limited time to learn with no training program
Working at Amcor was very satisfactory to me. I had been working there for over 40 years and the people were great to work with.
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – October 3, 2014
In my early years at Amcor, I started as an attendant packing bottles. Throughout time I then advanced to being a quality inspector to working in Shipping and Receiving. I then became a Shipping Clerk. A typical day at work would be picking orders, setting appointments for pick-ups, filing, talking to customer service on orders, preparing labels for UPS and FedEx on a daily basis. Everything I learned about Shipping and Receiving I had learned at Amcor. I learned different programs/software, and many trainings to complete certification in the job I did. The people at Amcor were friendly and excellent colleagues to work with. The hardest part of the job was leaving Amcor after many years.
Reclamation Manager (Former Employee) – Franklin, IN – August 6, 2014
Amcor Rigid Plastics is a global plastic packaging producer. Amcor ( Franklin IN) is a excellent company in terms of compensation, benefits and has a top rate Safety program. I have worked for them, Twenty-one years starting on the floor to leading a salvage regind section. Recently supervisors have transferred in to fill local openings from other plants and created a culture of " out with the old, and in with the new". Its my opinion the philosophy now is loyalty of a younger employee to the supervisor than maturity (experience) and loyalty to the company while working in concert with supervision.

Work varies from day to day for maintenance techs. There are times when you work 60 + hours a week and there are times when people are asked to take off early. Amcor is probably one of the best places to work in the area.

Supply Chain Management Intern (Former Employee) – Manchester, MI – November 2, 2013
I primarily looked at improving the forecasting process. I learned how to deal with large sets of data, ambiguity and how to deal with individuals who were less than understanding and cooperative. Not an ideal location but the employees in the area where my cubicle was located seemed fairly nice and more than willing to help when I had questions.
Maintenance Mechanic II (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 19, 2013
There is alot of tension between the maintenance employees and the management due to the lack of parts inventory, the increased amount of maintenance due to the lack of warehouse space, the lack of personnel due to the expansion, and the amount of forced overtime that regularly occurs. The management seems unconcerned with the issues. However, they pay quite well compared to competitors.
