Production-oriented company with emphasis on overtime
Quality Control Inspector (Current Employee) – Alsip, IL – January 4, 2017
I can only write of my own experience, and perhaps of what others have shared with me of their experiences. Overall, I have been unhappy working for Crown for the majority of my employment there, and I am not alone in that.
While I have learned much in a short time for my position, it seems to never be enough.
A typical night is very hectic, always trying to accomplish three or more tasks at once. Having two inspectors per shift is not enough to do the work of three or sometimes four inspectors at once.
Management seems to be quite inadequate, as among other things, something as simple as communication is absent for the most part.
As with any other company, there are some coworkers who are accommodating to work with, while others are nearly impossible.
The hardest part of my job at Crown might be the shift hours and lack of consideration by management, not to mention the high stress levels, pressure, and the aforementioned lack of communication. Working off-shift hours does take a physical and mental toll, however it is only viewed as just another shift.
The pay, however, is good (once you achieve a promotion), and the insurance is quite good.
Overtime is a double-edged sword, in that it is well more than plentiful, whether you want it or not, whether you are able to work it or not.
Good pay, good insurance
Lack of communication or overall concern for labor employees
