Damaged Can picker (Current Employee) – Olive Branch, MS – August 7, 2013
This a great fortune 5k company. Many people retire and hardly ever resign from here. The job placement process is very competitive. I learned how to operate and run all the machines in this warehouse. The staff was great and helpful, management is very friendly.

Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Buffalo Grove, IL – February 23, 2015

Front End Operator (Current Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – April 23, 2014
During my time at Rexam I have had the opportunity to train in on four different areas. Management is not the easiest to understand. Each manager expects something different which makes the job that much harder. Thus, my co-workers seem to be never happy. The most enjoyable part of the job is when we do actually work a 3-4 schedule. But, that is hardly the case when you have forced overtime.
Management is terrible. Your job is threatened on a daily basis. Benefit suck. Forced to work extra days with no compensation. Do not work here!!!!
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – White House, oh – June 22, 2013
I have worked many places in my 25 year career of managing people. This by far was the worse job I ever had. 8 supervisors hired in the past year and all 8 are looking for new jobs or have left already. Beware of this company!!!
There were opportunities for advancement, and people were recognized for a job well done.
Senior Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Newark, DE – April 13, 2014
I would start my day by reviewing the previous day’s production with both night and day supervisors, taking any unresolved issues to the morning production meeting to develop a plan with the appropriate department making sure appropriate personnel were assigned to resolve issues. I learned a lot about production planning, organizing upcoming projects, and developing teams that were very capable of working, and problem solving with little if any supervision. I enjoy working with different managers in an effort to achieve a common goal, and develop employees under me so the desire to achieve that goal as well. I really like seeing people grow, learn new skills, and advance in a company achieving personal success. I feel discipline is a tool that should be used to help people grow and understand what is expected of them, not as punishment. The hardest part for me is when an employee needs to be dismissed, if it has come to that point then it has to happen, but it will never be something I take lightly.
Quality Manager (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – January 9, 2014
Under paid, under staffed, and poor management. Management would often pull workers off of projects without consent to supervisors, and would require you to do work even though you were required to be in meetings
Process Technician (Former Employee) – Franklin, IN – September 19, 2014
In the past 14 years i was given great advice and training on set ups and trouble shooting from some of the best people in the industry. The best thing about the jobs was that you had to seriously think about the task at hand every day. Never a daul moment. Its a place that really make you want to care about your qaulity, performance, and custormer satisfaction. And always knowing that safety comes first.
Machinest (Former Employee) – Buffalo Grove, IL – July 25, 2012
You got paid very well here, but you could not understand most of your co workers with the language barrier that there was. The management was never around, or answered calls. I left because I moved back to Joliet.
Purchaser/ Supply Clerk / Lead (Former Employee) – Hot Springs, AR – May 17, 2013
When I started I worked a year at a Lining Machine. Checking for the placement on each lid, emptying and filling the hopper. Writing down what I did in the shift. Working closely with Quality Control.
Once I was hired for Lining Lead, my duties moved to motivator and verifying that all 12 lines were writing down there numbers and checking for flaws. Also working with scheduling on which lids were next in line, and preparing all labels and paperwork for these jobs.
Once I became Molding Lead, Motivator and keeping machines running thru breaks, & shifts, I lead a team of 20 to 30 machines and people at a time. In the very beginning of my shift, I checked to see I had employees for shift. Also my supervisors gave me priorities to run with. check all documentation on machines for maintence, kept up with quality checks every hour and worked with my employess making boxes, getting anything they needed.
Supply Clerk, I learned how to control the inventory, in and out thru documentation which I entered daily. Ran a report of MP2 daily to see what was need to order, went ahead and ordered. Worked with The supply cordinator and Purchasing manager when we needed to limit spending.
The hardest part of the job, being thrown in with no training and sink or swim mentality.
The most enjoyable, was schedule days monday thru friday. Hours. And if you were to see someone they had a smile on there face (they needed something) :)
can not think of any other then they switched my hours back to 12 hr. shifts hard on the body
Machine operator (Former Employee) – Excelsior Springs, Mo – January 24, 2013
working at rexam was alright i started on 8hr days, switched to 12hr days, and ended on 8hr nights. It was pretty easy work basically as a machine operator I was responsible for packaging finished product and making sure parts were up to standard as they came off the line.
