Operations and Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – July 23, 2017
The Company is a GREAT company to work for. It pays VERY well. A lot of overtime is mandatory. Workplace culture, its a Union Plant, that should say enough. Day time is very enjoyable, however, nights working 16hrs at night calls for a long night.
Quality Control Technician (Former Employee) – Winchester, IN – August 9, 2017
Glass Factory - Lots of PPE required Reverse weekly changing swing shift. Stressful work environment. Lack of communication between department heads. $18-28 /hr mandatory overtime for new people. Union House. Good health and life benefits 4 early = 2x 4 OT = 1.5x Super hot job and dangerous
lots of OT
lots of OT, they will call you non stop when off work to come in
Utility Operator (Current Employee) – Ruston, LA – June 4, 2017
Pay is decent for job requirements. Rotating 3 shifts every week can wear on your health and mood. The union in this factory is good for keeping those who should be fired and driving those away worthy of being employed.
Decent pay for level of job responsibility
Bad union, management will not resolve bad employee issues
A typical day is when everything goes well, a bad day is when the machines are running bad. I learned about computers dealing with machines that are set to run automated. Management can be very demanding and bad at times, too many chiefs with different ideas. People that work there are very social for the most part. The pay and benefits ae good. We are an unionized company.
Ardagh glass management had the old school iron fist ruling.
Tank manager (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – March 25, 2017
Ardagh is still working on there management team trying to get them onboard on managing the new generation. Working through employees and not to employees. It seemed to me that they only cared about the production and not the employees. I have worked 30 years on midnight shift and rotation shift. I wanted to seek out a job straight day shift and found O-i glass and felt I made a good decision to move on and join the o-i glass team. And now I am looking to raise my salary and find another location to broaden my horizons.
Production Worker, Fork Driver, Paperwork (Former Employee) – Ruston, LA – March 24, 2017
The job pay is great but it's no place for no one who wants or wishes to start a family in the future.. The management is very bad as well as the union you pay them to help you and all they do is turn on you with the management team the only thing good at a place like that is the pay.. They never compliment you on your work you never hear job well done, it's just like jail you never really see the outside until your time is up.. Whatever you do it's never good for no one out there they always find a problem with something you do and half of the time it's something that they would've told you to do..
