Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Fairfield, CASeptember 23, 2016
work hours were always available with short breaks in between
of course it can tend to get boring with just standing all day with watching wine bottles rotate on the conveyor belt all day

Great pay. Horrible training
Customer Account Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Chesterfield, MOApril 4, 2016
This company does not provide adequate training. You are pretty much set up for failure. The "lead" doesn't know how train or manage a department. Everything is fine in the beginning and then the nightmare begins.
Pros
Great pay. Benefits
Cons
Culture is a mess. Small office and the training is horrible

Inspector/Utility/Line Flow (Current Employee) –  Simsboro, LANovember 6, 2015
This job is complex and somewhat intense. Being an inspector requires a lot of attention to detail. Inspection of thousands of bottles/jars under light sensitive area. Everything is operated by multiple machines which detect and reject flaws and defects. Close observation and monitoring is mandatory.
Pros
Benefits and Pay

Short breaks

A challenging task done well.
Palletizer Operator (Former Employee) –  Dolton, ILSeptember 4, 2015
The job is repetitive in that the palletizer machine cycles, on average, once every 35 seconds. There are many items to observe and correct if need to maintain uninterrupted product flow.
After a period of observing I was able to identify critical areas during the packaging process and accomplish my mission with minimal effort.
As with any function there are times when my efforts needed to be stepped up to maintain production flow. Concentration and attention to detail was key.
Best part of the day was quitting time after maintaining satisfactory flow for the entire day and pass along a clear process to the following shift operator.
Pros
Free lunch was a nice benefit and as much overtime as I required.
Cons
Working a 3 shift rotation took some adjustments.

Machine operator (Current Employee) –  Bridgeton, NJSeptember 1, 2015
This company provides great pay as well as great benefits. The swing shift can be very challenging to parent of small children. As far as job advancement its very hard to move up the ladder because positions are always being filled quickly.

The toughest part of the job is to adjust to swing shift. The pay is great and the benefits are great. The job is fairly easy and not physical.

Outstanding and motivated workforce.
Worldwide leader (Former Employee) –  Ardagh Group, Lincoln IlMay 14, 2015
I regularly arrived at work early so I had time to talk with those employees who worked the 11PM to 7AM to understand what issues they had during the shift that we could address with day shift employees and managers. Through out the day, I would make several tours of the plant to again, gain a better understanding of any outstanding issues. Both hourly and staff employees were always focused on process improvement and the results in the areas of productivity, quality, and safety. The greatest pleasure I received from this job came from the one on one engagement I had with each and every employees.

enjoyable place to work
Palletizer Operator / Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Mayaguez, PRMay 31, 2013
A typical day at work is filling pallets with empty cans for 7 hours. I learned how to run a palletizer, drive a forklift, supervise the palletizer floor. The management supported anyone who wanted to learn more and advance themselves in the company. My co-workers were great, if you didn't know how to do something they would help you until you could do it yourself. The hardest part of the job was hen we had to check full pallets of cans for defective cans, you have to check each and every can. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you meet and surpassed your quota.
Pros
healthcare, stock options, retirement account
Cons
noisy
