Good company to work for, but stressful environment.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Manchester, MIJanuary 27, 2013
Pros: free lunches, time off for family problems.
Cons: long days, very stressfull
A typical day at Amcor Rigid Plastics is very busy. Expected to do a lot of work for the time that you have. Very long days to get everything done. Needed to be very organized because of interruptions all the time. Management is very demanding. Not always understanding. Co-workers were great. Always willing to help with a problem. Hardest part of the – more... job was working for more than one person and different personalities. – less

produce plastic bottles
production (Current Employee), NapoleonJanuary 25, 2013
Pros: work is not hard. pay is fair
Cons: insufficient staffing, way to much forced ot, no communication
Would not suggest anybody work for this company unless you have no life. They expect you to be on call all the time but no on call pay. I have been forced in for ot on day off to only be sent home before shift even starts. Managers act lost most of time and treat employees like dirt. Cant even get time off for funerals. Managers refuse to listen. Manager – more... has reduced crew sizes and now forces ot to cover those positions. Forced ot with little to no notice. It is by far the poorly managed company I have ever worked for. No way to advance and you are told that. Co workers are just as unhappy as I am miserable work environment. 12 hour shifts. Rarely get a day off & and you are told that that is what your vacation is for. They wont even stick to the work schedule they give you. You are told to come in everyday and they will send you home if you are not needed. That id because the managers there dont know how to manage! Stay awU from this place. – less

Great Job Until They Closed My Plant
Materials/Production Coordinator (Former Employee), Cinnaminson, NJDecember 18, 2012
Working at Amcor in Cinnaminson was the perfect job for me. My typical day involved interaction with numerous co-workers and customers, and I love interacting with people. It was a fast paced, busy day that usually flew by. The compensation and benefits were excellent. The hardest part was the plant closure, not just because I was losing a great job, – more... it was the way it was done on Amcor's part and not working with those great folks that had become part of my family every day. – less

Positive atmosphere with advancement opportunity
Forklift Driver, Warehouse Coordinator/Supervisor (Former Employee), Delran, NJOctober 1, 2012
Pros: opportunity for advancement and compensation
Cons: limited
My typical day involved managing crews of 9 to 12 shipping/receiving personnel to meet Amcor's needs and levels of expectations regarding customer service. I had plenty of upper management support to meet my goals and generally enjoyed a positive atmosphere with co-workers. My biggest challenge, yet the most enjoyable part of my job, was continuing – more... to foster and promote a daily sense of teamwork and cooperation. – less

Plant closed
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Lenexa KSJune 21, 2012
While working at Amcor Rigid Plastics, I learned about the injection molding process. I am a Machine Operator 2, which means I learned how to start and shut down Husky injection molding machines. A typical day at work would be that I pulled boxes on a set of machines checked quality and restarted any machines that broke cycle. Started up machines or – more... shut down machines that were scheduled to go down, I did process verifications and best in class on all machines running to color parts to lab to make sure they were in specafication acording to customers needs. Worked as a valued team member with a reputation for a strong work ethic. – less

Not a good place to work
Engineering (Current Employee), Blythewood, SCMay 17, 2012
Pros: good salary, no job security
Cons: poor management
98% of business is making plastic bottles, and the company that they make the bottles for is seeking to start making their own bottles. Potential for the elimination of alot of jobs. Great co-workers at the facility.

Management very cut-throat and inconsiderate. Many wear the title of manager; however, fail to manage. They identify employees weaknesses – more... and use them against the employee later down the line rather than attempting to remedy what they have identified as the employees performance deficiencies. No job security when managers have that type of management style. Constantly feeling as if you are walking in a mine field waiting to step on one to explode in your face. Corporate does not listen or take employee concerns seriously. – less

Wouldn't work for them again
well liked (Former Employee), Cinnaminson, NJMay 3, 2012
Pros: good pay and benefits
Cons: cut throat corporate mentality, not always trustworthy, job security
They bought the Ball Plastics Facility in Cinnaminson, NJ, and closed it a year later, scrapping almost everything, after spending millions on upgrades. They run a very tight ship and have absolutely no tolerance for foolishness. The pay was good, $15+ to start for most positions, topping off at $18, with good benefits. You'll work most holidays if – more... your scheduled, but you get holiday pay on top. – less

Excellent co workers
Group Leader Electronic Engineering Technician (Current Employee), PRApril 25, 2012
A typical day of work i check all the machines and verify all the auxiliary equipment. Every day we learn something. The management area there are people super effective. Some co workers had the same goal and other goes just to get paid. The hardest part of my job is how have a lot of duties and not enough time, so i need to work as a fast thinking – more... person and distributed the task by priorities. – less
