Very good pay and benefits but the atmosphere is extremely hostile between management and hourly union workers. Staff is nice to your face but have no backing or help with each other.

If you don't want to work hard, then this company is not for you. However, if you apply yourself and work hard, you can have a lifelong career at Crown. Benefits are amazing: hourly workers get pensions, everyone gets free health benefits, tuition reimbursement, etc. Operations at the plants run 24x7 with lots of opportunities for overtime.

We are an essential company because we make cans for food, beverage and aerosol cans (cleaners, etc.).

No job security. If you ask questions,they will tell you not to come back and just get a temp to replace you. No leadership what so ever. You live at work. No life outside.

Corporate decided not to give out any employee bonus this year for Christmas although all goals were achieved. What a way to stick it to your employees and their families just in time for Christmas. Tons of mandatory overtime and corporate shows appreciation by withholding bonuses.

Company doesn't care about their workers at all. Stressful work environment because nobody from the front office ever knows what they are doing on a day to day basis especially the plant manager!

Enjoyed my role as the Safety and HR role. However, training was very vague when starting in the position. At times, the office environment was very toxic and stressful.

Communication and culture is great at my location, information is available for any and all questions. The goals are clear and the resources to achieve them available. Management does its best to work with employees when flexibility during a shift is necessary.

Terrible union, only protects bad employees, you can be forced six 14 hr shifts a week and if you don't want to work, then you get fired, okay money..

Again.. Great place to earn a living and pay all your bills. Just don't get sick or hurt or they will outcast you. Their problems stem from within the office and leach to the work floor.

Crown is not a bad place to work but it could be so much better. Management is very old school and does not look for new or better solutions. Many of the employees do not feel like their jobs are secure.

I worked for Crown for 20 years including 10 1/2 months thru a temp service. They let you hang not knowing from week to week if you will be working there the following week. And they have gotten ride of people for asking about hiring. It's hot in the summer, and colder inside the building than it is outside in the wintertime, but the office area is very comfortable. It is an old building, but simple things to make it warmer in the winter are blantly ignored. Worked 21 turn for most of my time there, then we got a new plant manager and he sweet talked enough people into changing to 12 hour shifts. When people started complaining about the loss of money, he ignored them, them when production went down, he laid off 30 people and fired as many.These were the first lay offs in 16+ years. He installed cameras everywhere and punished people for the simplest things.New hires stood around and played on cell phones all shift and not a word was said. Corporate finally caught up with him and the plant manager "quit to spend more time with family" Job security has become a thing of the past. Good money and benefits are decent, but watch your back or you will get knifed.

Great benefits but that is the ONLY good thing I am able to say for the plant where I worked. Is run and controlled by clicks in the plant. And management runs on cowardice and fear !

It is a steady job with benefits. I left automotive to gain the benefits but I am not much on running the equipment as much as I would rather be turning wrenches. Most of the time is spent operating the equipment and running quality checks. One will make good money if the schedule works for them.
