Truck Driver Class A (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – September 8, 2016
Great company with a family-type atmosphere. I worked there for six years as a truck driver, but due to a corporate decision the truck fleet was eliminated. I would go back to work for them immediately if possible.
Injection Technician (Former Employee) – Tolleson, AZ – November 13, 2015
A typical day at work is fast paced and long hours. I learned to do quality checks and process changes. Lots of management changes.My co-workers were fun to work with. The hardest part of the job was long hours on your feet and working with hot plastics. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with others.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Beloit, WI – December 27, 2015
This building stinks. So old and run down, they need to update the office. The lunch room is very dirty and has little fruit flies flying around. have to cover your drink because there are so many. They had to take out vending machine because they could not keep the mice out of it. Management is a joke. They are not fair at all, I have seen them treat employees different and also customers different. They are not organized or have any type of workers manual. The way they treat their customers is crazy. I would not recommend buying from them. They are not consistent on the pricing of the products and change it for all customers even if they are all buying same amount. This company started in the 1940's and has not updated with the times. Very outdated with all paperwork and overall day to day. Very low pay.
A couple nice people.
Most factory workers are ex-con. Workers getting cars repossessed in parking lot.
Blow Mold Technician (Current Employee) – Fife, WA – April 16, 2014
You get written up if you get sick (0 sick days). If you plan on getting sick you have to give them 2 weeks notice. I wore earrings to work and almost got fired without warning. You have to be on your feet all day. I have a pedometer and yesterday at work ran around the floor and up and down stairs for 12 miles (avg 5-10 miles) You get in trouble if you're caught resting your legs by sitting down for a second. No cell phone usage. There is a book that is very tedious that determines how much you make and if you don't complete the first part in the first year then you're fired. If you don't complete the level they hired you on for then you are fired or they cut your pay a few dollars. I hurt my foot at work and apparently they don't like that (it messes up their numbers). They've been watching me and knit picking everything I do ever since. The management doesn't care about the employees and HR is right behind them. The people that work there are decent and the work is not bad.
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Fife, Wa – August 21, 2012
If you have ever wondered how to make a coke bottle, a lot of work goes into it. From blow molding to quality inspections, you were able to see all aspects of the job. Everyone is very friendly, and willing to help. The only downside is that usually the hours were crazy.
cheap pops, clean, ability to learn new things
very little chance for advancement, have to know someone to get hired
Forklift operator/Material Handler (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – October 11, 2013
It was very productive and always room for advancement. The hardest part of the day was when a machine went down and we had to problem shoot it and get it back up. Each co-worker was willing and ready to help each other. Mangement always made sure each employee was trained accurately

Fast paced and great learning environment! Definintely a great company to work for! Not only was I trained further on my forklift skills but I also learned about dispatch and many other skills in the warehouse flow.

Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – February 20, 2013
i found western containe to be a great place to work. we learned how to work as a team, and there was opportunity to move up and grow within the company. The hardest part of the job was the 12 hour shifts. The most enjoyable part of the job was the closeness of our work crew.
good wages, and opportunty to grow within the company
