Slightly above average pay for most job classifications

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Amcor has been a stable place to work. Products come and go, but the plant has remained and added more products. Cost saving initiatives are problematic.

Pros

Decent insurance, slightly above average pay for the area

Cons

doesn't follow employee handbook, makes policies up

Good pay, tough hours.

Pay is very competitive but the twelve hour shifts make it very difficult to have a semi normal life. Huge disconnect between the eight hour employees and the twelve hour employees.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Hours

Fast paced, typical factory work

You learn a lot fast, gotta be quick on your feet to be able to catch machine mess ups and so on. Work schedule is pre set which is nice to plan around. They are very strict about attendance.

Pros

You learn a lot

Cons

None

Managers are having office romance with employees, and those employees are exempt from having to work ot and get special treatment. HRM is clueless.

Horrible Experience

Management doesn't care about the employees. Supervisor positions are given to people "on the buddy " system. Not to the employee that has earned it.

Wonderful company!!!

Amcor in Nicholasville treats you like family. Amazing pay and benefits. It's a joy going to work. Their training program for operators is amazing. It's not you are shown and thrown to the wolves. It's goes into depth, they want you to succeed at Amcor. You have a question one of the employees that train you is willing to answer. They encourage asking questions, they rather you ask a question to do the job right. Safety unlike other companies is #1. It's not a priority, it's a company core value. It's a culture shock from where I came from. Go from a company that treated me like a no one, to a company that knows success lays with the employees. You are sort of spoiled. You can't ask for more, I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to have employment with Amcor. I can't stress their enough about their Safety over everything. The CEO of the company has a policy of he would rather see you take a few minutes to think before you react. Them minutes will allow you to think straight and get the task at hand done in a safe matter.

Probably the best job ive had.

I went in through a temp agency and they immediately wanted to hire me on properly. The hours were amazing and with the pay it gave me I had both time and money to do what I both wanted and needed to do. They trained me in anything I needed in a quick and proper fashion without skipping any important details. Literally the only reason I left was I lived out of town and got a job closers to home.

Pros

Balance of family and work, great pay

Cons

I just didnt like standin at a conveyor belt all shift

Great Compensation. Poor life balance.

Amcor is a great place to work as far as compensation and benefits. There is zero work/life balance if you are in management. You are expected and required to be on call 24/7.

Pros

Salary/benefits

Cons

No life/work balance. Always understaffed.
