Furnace Operator (Former Employee) –  Burlington, WIJune 28, 2017

Proof unions are outdated
Utility Operator (Current Employee) –  Ruston, LAJune 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.
Pros
Decent pay for level of job responsibility
Cons
Bad union, management will not resolve bad employee issues

Day at the Glass Plant
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Henderson, NCApril 21, 2017
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.
Pros
great benefits, convenient to home
Cons
swing shifts hot/summer, cold/winter

Hot End Glass Production (Former Employee) –  Simsboro, LAApril 5, 2017
I wouldn't recommend this place for anyone. Ardagh places to much unwanted pressure on employees. They aren't fair to the personal life that employees have.

Ardagh glass management had the old school iron fist ruling.
Tank manager (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAMarch 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.
Pros
Good pay good benefits
Cons
Bad management old school managing

Good Pay
Production Worker, Fork Driver, Paperwork (Former Employee) –  Ruston, LAMarch 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..
