Overall, Ball Corporation is an excellent place to work with a lot of room for advancement, excellent pay, and decent benefits. If you're a skilled worker without a family, this is the place for you. The only downside is the hours worked. You work a swing shift, 4 days on and 4 days off, alternating days and nights working 12 hours at a time. If you can ignore the OT opportunities given, your time off is excellent. There will be mandated overtime days/nights for mechanical conversions and other forms of maintenance and training. The environment varies based on your job title, but most likely it will be relatively dirty, very loud, extremely fast paced, and if machinery goes down, extremely time sensitive. During summer time, certain areas of the plant reached upwards of 110 degrees (Fans and other forms of cooling methods were provided, So they did try). Management isn't perfect, but it is better than any other manufacturing facility I have ever worked with.
