Stacker (Former Employee) –  Weirton, WVMay 23, 2018
A typical day at work, clock in 6:15 to relieve crew. Talk with other crew member about things that have been done, look over everything to make sure it is done for quality inspection. Management lacks leadership, and training. Do not care about their employees.
Cons
No lunch most days. No teamwork

If you choose to stay, you will be rewarded. If you choose to leave you will never be rehired and treated like a traitor. Choose this company at your own peril.

Forklift Operator and shipping clerk (Current Employee) –  Kankakee, ILMay 7, 2018
there is no structure and 75 percent of jobs are unsafe

ive learned they dont care if you ever see your wife and kids and expect you to be committed to them only

management is very poor

very poor

the hardest part of the job is knowing things will never change here

the most enjoyable part is interacting with the truck drivers other than that going home is the best part of crown
Pros

Master Electrician (Former Employee) –  Worland, WYApril 23, 2018
I worked 3000 plus hours a year and was forced to leave after 11 years in the job. Very hard place to work. The management are all snakes waiting to get you. It's a miserable place to work. Worse than being in high school.
Pros
None
Cons

Reasonable Pay / Great Benefits
Palletizer and Strapper Operator (Former Employee) –  Faribault, MNApril 18, 2018
Depending on what job you are working, the work can either be easy or more challenging. The company is willing to train people with limited or no experience. Opportunity for upward mobility and higher pay based on seniority. Voluntary overtime sometimes available and varying amounts of mandatory overtime. Exceptional upper management and office employees. Poor workplace culture on the factory floor. Lax enforcement of company policies and supervisor's authority not acknowledged or respected by the majority of production workers. The hardest part of the job is the sometimes alternating shifts and limited ability to plan anything outside of work. Most enjoyable part of the job is the opportunity for upward mobility and to learn new skills/jobs.
Pros
Competitive pay and benefits, willing to train, opportunity for overtime
Cons
Poor workplace culture on the factory floor, mandatory overtime, poor work/life balance

End press mechanic (Current Employee) –  Faribault, MNApril 16, 2018
There's a reason why most people stay here for over ten years. It's a good paying job and the benefits are great. There's a mass abundance of overtime if you want it.

Printer Operator (Current Employee) –  Bradley, ILFebruary 27, 2018
Crown cork & seal is a very demanding place to work. Also very fast paced with very little room for error. But with that Crown has excellent benefits.
