Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Mansfield, TX – January 18, 2018
Worked here for two years at the mansfield texas facility. During the last two months i worked there several racist comments were directed at me by my co-workers. I told management about it and a few weeks later i was called into the HR office. The HR lady was very rude and acted like i had done something wrong by speaking up. There were no apologies offered for the treatment i received, only excuses. I was told that i was not allowed to talk about it to anyone and that if i did, i would be subject to disciplinary action, including termination. That was my last day working there and i did not come back.
Material Handler/Seamer Operator (Former Employee) – Sturtevant, WI – January 10, 2018
Great place for an individual to understand and function in a production environment. There is career advancement but not much. It is not a dead end job but working 12 hour shifts, covering vacations, and absences does have its toll. Positive side to that though is your bank account and 401k will grow. I have actually applied for some of their front office positions. I would recommend Bway to people looking for employment.
Productive, fast paced environment, other employees are nice. But alot of management shouldn't be.
Packer/Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 3, 2018
The benefits and pay are very good. The downside is it's very very hot and almost unbearable in the summer, very cold in the winter. Employees work 12 hour shifts, but are always drafted in on their days off, and will get written up if they don't show. Even though it's their scheduled day off. Most management is in their position only because of who they know not what they know.
Great pay/ benefits
More hours than promised, no time for home life/ family
very stressful and off balance for my wife and children
Production Operator (Current Employee) – Sturtevant, WI – December 13, 2017
A typical day is long and fast paced for twelve hours. I learned how to run a slitter and had some hands on with a welder. My experience with management wasn't bad. The work place as a whole needed a lot of help in my opinion, too many crew chiefs and miscommunication. The hardest part of the job was the hours spent with so many sour individuals. Unfortunately, the most enjoyable part of the day was when the shift was over.
Preparing and packing pails for customers order daily, while in a fast atmosphere. During times of duties setting up and operating machines. Clean work area plus help new employees with job issues and concerns.

Worker (Current Employee) – Illinois – November 17, 2017
Every day is extremely hectic.The company doesn't have standard processes & procedures which make it difficult to effectively work with confidence. Lack of teamwork across the company/plant. More focus is put on production and less on safety.
No organizational standards, hectic work environment, lack of safety culture - lots of accidents
Operator (Former Employee) – LaGrange, GA – November 7, 2017
The job was simple, all we were doing is stacking and loading up the pallet tray with the buckets until it was ready to get shipped off, the job could be very stressful at time but its all what u made it.
