Worked with Greif for 7 months and enjoyed working there. People were nice and work was not overwhelming. Good leadership and supportive staff. I do recommend working here. I only left because of the traffic.

I’ve never worked at a such a poorly ran place in my life.
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Winfield, KSAugust 17, 2018
Terrible management, no set hours, Troy attempts to rule with fear. He enjoys micro-managing. It’s no wonder people come and go here. It’s not a friendly place to work by no means.
Pros
Free hats..

Long days, short breaks

Small warehouse with easy going fun and relaxed people. I highly recommend anyone to work for the people I got to work with. The job itself is difficult loading and unloaded steel oil drums.

Laborer/Production (Current Employee) –  Bradley, ILJuly 18, 2018
A typical day of work at greif starts off with a morning safety meeting, self evaluation or rating and discussion about how the previous day went and what can be done to improve for the next day as far as safety and production goes which is good to keep employees gaged and involved! You always pick up on something new as machines malfunction theirs opportunity's to learn either how to fix a problem or troubleshoot it and become more valuable and useful. Management is short staffed so it puts a burden on others to do more. The hardest part of the job is working through the heat and enduring the excessive walking for 12 hours.

Great place to work
Business Partner Master/Collections Specialist (Former Employee) –  Delaware, OHMay 21, 2018
Greif is a great place to work. They are very good about offering training for their employees. They have benefits including tuition reimbursements. The only negative is competitive pay. They did competitive wage checks with other companies but not very often.
Pros
Personal chef cooks lunches twice a week, personal barber available, company events that include families, beautiful campus to work on, very scenic and safe.
Cons
Gender pay gap
