Too much forced overtime
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Celina, OHMarch 20, 2019
Worked every Saturday for months. Other departments would be behind and everyone had to suffer working every Saturday. Of course the supervisors and leads would all be home enjoying the weekend. Good pay but not enough to keep me working every Saturday of my life!
Pros
Lots of hours
Cons
Worked every Saturday. You only get 2 short breaks in a day

Management is ridiculous
Welder (Current Employee) –  Celina, OHMarch 11, 2019
Working at crown is okay until you take in affect the ongoing competition between the shifts, they're "promoting within" is messed up because anyone and everyone can be a supervisor if they want to. Not many of them over 35 years old. My supervisor and group leader have never welded at Crown. So explaining things to them or trying to figure out problems is nearly impossible. Vacation sucks. Breaks are short. It's just another factory. They hire anybody, if you want low deductable insurance you'll probably end up having to pay them. Go elsewhere or go to college.
Pros
Meet good people
Cons
Leadership, communication

Good place to work overall
Student Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  New Castle, INFebruary 28, 2019
At the beginning of every shift is a department meeting. You are given a daily safety briefing and notified of any meetings. You are then sent to work until your morning break. After your morning break, you work again until your meal break. You return to work again until your shift ends. I learned a lot at this company during the summers that I worked for them. Management is alright. There are a few individuals in management that don't seem to get along with very many individuals.
Pros
Can leave site during lunch/dinner
Cons
Little schedule flixibility esp. for college students

Very high school
Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Minster, OHJanuary 1, 2019
Very petty women, and 99% of the place is women. Most of the caddiness comes from management tho. Crown knows what it's doing by only having women run women at this plant because a man would never get away with treating women the way they are treated here.
Pros
Hours
Cons
Everything other than the hours

General Manager, Latin America and the Caribbean (Former Employee) –  Pompano Beach, FLDecember 19, 2018
This is a well-run company. It's a good company. Period. The employees (top to bottom) care about each other - and that is a rare thing anymore. Millennials may struggle a bit with the old-school approach to how things ought to be, but hey, get over it. Promotions come about as people retire - it's a company people stay with... that is a good sign. Supreme HR team, among the best.

Great company culture. The team was really tight-knit. The workspace is modern and relaxing. They allow interns to work on a personal project during their internship too which was nice.

Technical Support (Current Employee) –  New Bremen, OHOctober 5, 2018
Good company to work for, fair minded and has good work/lift balance. My only complaint is with benefits, you get very little PTO when you start and the 401k match is not great

Not managed very well. Stressful and male oriented.
Assembly Worker (Former Employee) –  New Bremen, OHOctober 2, 2018
I appreciated working there. Not much room for advancement in the male dominated atmosphere. Long hours standing with very few breaks. Have to work alot of overtime to make ends meet. Small town atmosphere that is very cliquey.
Pros
Met a few friends
Cons
Short breaks and lunches. Long hours and very competitive.

Crown is a great family owned company.
Security Officer (Current Employee) –  New Bremen, OHOctober 1, 2018
I love working for Crown. When you first start, you are provided 24 hours of personal leave and 3 days paid vacation days. My boss and supervisor are great to work for. They are understanding when you need to call in and understanding of many situations.
Pros
Personal leave and paid vacation
Cons
None

Favortism and lack of management
Wire harness (Current Employee) –  Minster, OHSeptember 18, 2018
I have been at Crown for several years and it has continually went down hill. Insurance prices have sky rocketed with less coverage, the turnover rate is outrageous requiring more overtime than wanted for many years without a break. Company wants you to provide more product with less equipment and staff which in turn affects their quality and safety rates as well. I use to enjoy my job and didn't mind going into work for overtime but, it is to the point now where everyone hates going in.
Pros
vacation, wages
Cons
short breaks, turnover rate, poor benefits, overtime hours for long periods of time

Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Vandalia, OHSeptember 16, 2018
Always have a 40 hour work week with optional overtime. Vacation and personal time very reasonable with advancement opportunities. Large group of co-workers could be a pro or con depending on the type of person you are.

The company is very good and well organized. With the extent of the support you have it is a great company to work for and a lot of room to expand your horizons. In 5 years I went from a Mechanic to a Manager.
