BLOW MOLDING MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Cartersville, GA – April 19, 2016
A typical day would be operating a blow molding machine. Feeding preforms into a hopper, doing quality checks on the bottles, gauge checks on the equipment and keep palletiser operating properly. I learned how to use complex machine computer operations. I also gained experience in quality control and inspection. There were a great group of managers. You ran and operated the machine alone so there was not much interaction with other employees. I got along with everyone I was around either way. The hardest part of the job was working swing shifts every two weeks. The most enjoyable part of the job was that it was an interesting job and you never stopped learning.

Manager (Former Employee) – York – January 19, 2015
With a turnover rate of 50% alone is enough for anyone to question one's long term professional goals in this company. The company is about 20 yrs behind corporate America with fundemental processes. The incompetence and overbearing politics create a unprecedented level of unecessary stress.
This is not a good company as previously outlined in the reviews.
Labwork,Lineworker,I learned that whatever you do try your best and do what makes you happy .Management was ok not all but some. Coworkers some had attitudes and some were easy to work with.Hardest part of job was the attitudes management couldnt make there mines up and favoritism. the most enjoyable was going to work everyday and waiting for the day to be over with
no christmas parties, no incentives programs, insurance high
I had many responsibilities and had my hands in each part of the plant operations as I was responsible for the bottom line. I interacted with suppliers, vendors, all departments at the plant as well as upper management on a daily basis. Worked with manufacturing to reconcile inventory, schedule production & PM's to meet customer orders. Hardest part was to meet corporate deadlines for reporting KPI's with limited staffing but that ended to be the most enjoyable part of my job by meeting those targets due to prioritizing & making processes work more efficiently to get the job done. I enjoyed helping plant personnel with health insurance, payroll, workers comp, performance review and employee involvement programs.
agreesive deadlines, long hours
great pay, vested in succcess of operation, making decisons impacting bottom line
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Woodridge, IL – January 31, 2013
Short minute meetings to follow up with production before initiating shift. I've learned different techniques when handling material. It's a bit difficult to maintain optimism in negative environment where others are not honest and responsible of their actions and duties. I enjoy being productive and recognize that I'm a valuable asset to the company.
Thumbs up - Growing Company, Good Capital, Many Facillities in Great Family Locations
PLANT CONTROLLER (Current Employee) – - Not Provided - – February 10, 2013
Great people to work with at all levels. Corporate Headquarters in an unfortunate location - York PA. The company is growing and recently acquired by Rank, which should bring good changes. Pay for managers is above average, bonus recently reduced, but the benefits (once seen as a shortfall) are improving overall. Some of the leaders at the director level are quite excellent, very respectable people, but some difficult to communicate up to. The top-down management style, prevailing for so long at Graham, is beginning to fall back to 360 evaluation and a more collaborative environment.
great people to work with on all levels.
top-down management culture deeply set, but improving.

Production Worker (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – May 13, 2013
A typical work day requires me to run around at a fast pace and get various task done, from the recieving line to booking and stocking. I learned a great deal of things there from production line to grinding plastic bottles work required being on feet all day and I never had a problem. Managment was the nicest ive ever worked with they were all good team motivater & keep everyone on their daily duties, Co-Workers very easy to get along with one of the co-worker i meet the 1st on the job picked me up from home also took me to and from work. Hardest part of the job was climbing high latters and knocking off oil bottles stacked up on cardboard. Most enjoyable about work that it actually never seemed like work and the day past by fast.

Worked independantly and as a team player. Co-workers very copperative. Only problem was warehouse staging area was very limited on space in order to stage the product prior to shipping. Best part was the cooperation of co- workers.
