Maintenance Mechanic II (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – October 19, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: lack of communication
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 – more... pay quite well compared to competitors. – less
Autonomous position that allowed me to create position.
Material Database Administrator (Former Employee), Manchester, MI – August 9, 2013
Pros: the option to work from home.
Cons: defending decisions to those unfamiliar with working in the manufacturing environment.
This particular job was in the supply chain area. My manager believed in trust and integrity and I was allowed to work from home whenever necessary due to my husband's illness ( he is now deceased). I was allowed to make decisions that were backed by my manager which greatly helped me to establish policies and procedures necessary for the implementation – more... of SAP. – less
The management is an absolute JOKE. They all lie, they are all on a power trip and they treat the workers like dogs. They LOVE to fire people then they just eliminate that specific job and shove the work load on to someone else. They also enjoy belittle their employees.

Very good company to work for very high paced and and makes everybody aware of the importance of having a safe and productive plant. The only downfall is that the plant had to close to to rising overhead cost to conduct business in the area.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Manchester, MI – January 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
production (Current Employee), Napoleon – January 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

Materials/Production Coordinator (Former Employee), Cinnaminson, NJ – December 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
Process Technician (Former Employee), Delran, NJ – December 7, 2012
Cons: laidoff and management
Worked twelve hour shifts over night after being put on day shift was switched with a weekends notice. Management had no idea what was going on within the company. Company bought out our old company and shut us down after one year of buying out company.
Pros: opportunity for advancement and compensation
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

Worked as a valued team member with a reputation for a strong work ethic. – less
