Support Technician (Former Employee) – Bryan, TX – March 16, 2017
Co workers were unreliable. Supervisors were not caring when a complaint was made. NO type of teamwork was enforced. Hardesr part of job was trying to work with a place that doesnt care if your there of not and dont care about your opinion.......During hot summer days place is twenty to twenty-five hotter inside than it was outside, During winter time no heat would be provided......
Packager and machine operator (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – March 9, 2017
Good job. Bway had great benefits health and dental and also a 401k. But the management was kind of bias on different shifts. Lots of supervisors so power struggles with each other. And 12 hour shifts.
Good pay and benefits
Long shifts and power struggles between supervisors
grunt (Former Employee) – Valparaiso, IN – February 17, 2017
Incompetent management trying to reduce payroll at the expense of traumatizing workers and sacrificing quality standards in the blind hope that a threat is as good as a legitimate quality procedure. Human Resource personnel walking the floor looking for infractions and trying to usurp the duties of supervisors while sleeping with upper management. Cronyism and nepotism are the rule of the day in hiring supervisors. This plant is on a downhill spiral revisiting the mistakes of times past and forsaking the monumental improvements that were made in the not to distant history where employees were empowered and allowed time to do their jobs professionally rather than having to succumb to mandatory perfunctory rote by time constrained necessity. God help the customer!!!
inadequate parking space combined with aforementioned problems...see below.
Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 19, 2017
This company does not care for their people. If your child is sick or in a accident and not on time or show up you get a point no excuse policy is very Extreme here. Yes most company's run on a point sheet at this place watch your points carefully. Firing people is key at this company too get people in and out due too their poor raises. >They try too get water out of a rock< Everyone is pretty much new, so you don't get Direct answers here Or proper training.
Lead Man (Current Employee) – Mansfield, TX – January 10, 2017
Very fast paced. Always busy. Everyday is a new learning experience. This is one thing I like about this job. Always willing to learn. Supervisors are always willing to help with anything needed or to show you how to do anything.
Start of shift check production schedule. Make sure all of material for Product is available in said quantity according to schedule. I learned to maintain multiple lines safely and efficiently. The hardest part for myself was going between day and night shift on short notice. Great coworkers most have been working for the company for 10 to 20plus years.
Maintainer / Mechanic (Former Employee) – Sturtevant, WI – October 2, 2016
This company sucks! Management are the worst, favoritism rules the day.If they were'nt a big corporation Sturtevant plant would have shut down long ago. Employees forced to work upwards of 70 hrs. In one week. They do not honor family time at all. Benefits have declined tremendously over the years due to new managers that keeps trying to save a buck for their corporate bosses. Former employees have sued the company and won.
Very fast pased environment which allows you to grow.
Production/Project Planning Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 30, 2016
Worked at Bway 9 years. Overall good experience in learning the Can Industry and the injection molding process in the plastics industry. Also being involved with the yearly budget and being responsible for its output further increased my knowledge base.
A typical day at work included reviewing the MRP output with resultant maintenance to keep MRP valid, monitoring shop floor activity to see if production was on plan, and reviewing purchase orders to see if shipments from the vendors were on plan. Calling meetings if required was also part of the agenda.
My management and co workers were always supportive and fun to work with.
The hardest part of the job was maintaining the lowest inventory levels possible while scheduling the factory efficiently and maintaining customer service levels.
The most enjoyable part was the challenge to make it happen.
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) – Valparaiso, IN – August 23, 2016

Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Cedar City, UT – July 2, 2016
Typical day at work in standing for 12 hours at your station and keeping it hazard free and clean for the next shift worker as the plant is 24/7. I also inspect 5 gal. buckets and lids. I do not know my co-workers as I have only been on job a month. The hardest part of the job is standing for the 12 hours. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing I inspected and the product is good to go.
