Hot but good place to work
Packer (Former Employee) –  Russellville, ARMay 19, 2018
I think they should pay more for how hot it is there. They don't let you smoke on your breaks. But they do make you work at a fast pace and I really enjoyed that part of it
Pros
30 min lunch
Cons
two 10 min breaks

Mindless work
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Terre Haute, INMay 18, 2018
Takes 20 + years to get on days as an operator. They start at decent pay rate but tops out at a lower than other comparable factories in the area. No matching for 401k. And the insurance is expensive for what little it covers.
Pros
Never had any issues with getting paid
Cons
Takes forever to get to day shift. Low top pay and expensive insurance

Long hours,good pay
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIMay 16, 2018
It's not bad if you are working with people of similar interests. If you don't get along with your coworkers, it is terrible. The biggest downside is management. Most of them are completely incompetent and think everyone is replaceable.

Struggling
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Oshkosh, WIMay 9, 2018
Huge shifts in management and subsequent strategies have created a stressful and difficult culture to work. Cost cutting and restructuring seems obvious that it is positioning itself for sale. Some really smart and dedicated people, many seemed trapped in a perilous culture.

Fast paced, Middle management not appreciated
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  WisconsinApril 29, 2018
Great job, great employees. Pay is not enough compared to the responsibilities we have.
Middle management seems more like an annoyance to upper management.
Supervisors have to go through manager and HR for EVERYTHING.
No real authority..."inmates run the prison"

Plant based on customer needs that isn’t managed properly
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Fremont, OHApril 25, 2018
The company as a whole seems to be struggling, and the moral of the plant is awful. Certain people are treated differently from others and they panic non stop rather than figuring out long term solutions

Great pay, poor management
Quality Assurance Technician (Current Employee) –  Oshkosh, WIApril 21, 2018
If you are willing to work 12 hours on your feet and switch from days to nights every two weeks, then you will be pleased with the pay. The most discouraging thing working at Bemis is the management. There is definitely favoritism and do not expect advancement unless all of management likes you.

Management only protects themselves
Quality Manager (Current Employee) –  Oshkosh, WIApril 16, 2018
Expect to get thrown under the bus. Plant leadership is extremely cliquey and if you aren't part of the "circle of trust", don't expect any support. You will not be given any meaningful goals and there is absolutely no focus on personnel development. If someone that is well-liked creates an issue, they look for someone else to blame/take the fall. Constantly changing conditions lead to frequent layoffs. Not a place for long-term security.

Good job with alot of advancement opportunities
Lamination Coater Assistant Operator (Former Employee) –  Oshkosh, WIApril 10, 2018
Bemis is a large company and its easy to become a number there however if you have good attendance and dont slack off you will stand out and move up the ladder fast. Shift/Department supervisors are great. Upper management however changes alot and they stuggle with communication. Pay and benifits are above average and the work is not hard. Coworkers are great and its overall a enjoyable place to work.
Pros
Excellent pay and benifits
Cons
12 hour rotating 2-2-3 shifts

Bad Environment
Assistant Operator (Former Employee) –  Oshkosh, WIApril 6, 2018
You work one week Mon, Tue, Fri, Sat
Next Week Sun, Wed, Thurs.
Get paid for 52 hours first week then 36 next week.

Feels like your always at work with people who are really not fun to be around. Very grumpy employees and Lead Operators slack off and take longer breaks than they should. They also make their assistants do most of the work and management doesn't care.

Extremely strict on safety to the point it interferes with doing your job sensibly. But they will also only train you on one machine then when you start after training your on a machine you know nothing about which isn't very safe if you think about it.

High turn over rate with a job that pays well tells you all you need to know about the job.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Always sleeping or working and coworkers

Tough year for Bemis
Global Regional Procurement Manager (Current Employee) –  Neenah, WIMarch 31, 2018

Pros
Free lunches and foods most days; work out room; great people
Cons
So big that it is difficult to get to the right person to get things done or improved.

Continuous Improvement Specialist (Current Employee) –  Oshkosh, WIMarch 22, 2018

Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Sheboygan Falls, WIMarch 19, 2018
Good company overall. Workers could use an attitude change. Managers need to be more aware of the needs of work place. Training needs to be more encompassing. Senior employees need to be more open to teaching newer members.
Pros
Light parts
Cons
Unfriendly environment

Ok for a job bad for a career
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Bemis , WIMarch 17, 2018
No job security will dismiss for minor issues. Ok for single people but not great for family people. Decent vacation but have been taking away all perks of working there. Employees are miserable as the management runs the company through fear. Don’t make any mistakes or you will be collecting unemployment.
Pros
Benefits and pay as well as coworkers
Cons
Only care about numbers. Employees are just a number to use and then terminate.
