I worked there for about 2 months, until i learned of all of the drama, like at any workplace, i loved it there. I worked as a temp, but almost was hired in until i found out i was pregnant and too sick to work.
I did not choose to give this review. It was randomly chosen for me to complete. I think, based on my review, that fairly gives enough feedback. But, I choose not to go into any further details about this company.
Utility Worker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Champaign, IL – March 5, 2019
this place wasnt the best place to be at. equipment constantly needed fixing. managers never wanted to fully fix problems just put it on the next guy. the equipment was always breaking from jimmy wrigged fixes being cheap on parts
The engineering department does quality work and is good for learning manufacturing processes. It takes a while for projects to get approved and too much is micromanaged.
The projects I was worked on as an Intern were done mostly by myself and with the oversight of the plant engineer. It was a good learning department of what to expect when i enter the field as a full-time employee.
Downstream Technician (Current Employee) – Jackson Center, OH – February 11, 2019
I was working as a downstream for 5 months got a call from Adecco. Said the supervisor had complaints that i sucked on every line and didnt know what i was doing which i got a different story from the coworkers and wheel ops that i worked with which said they never had a problem and that i am a good worker. Currently not hired in. Got another call today and was told im going from a downstream which i was making 14.90 an hour to a utility as 12.90 an hour. You are at risk working here as a temp. 2nd shift they will not hire you. ENTER AT YOUR OWN ABILITY AND RISK. Good pay but supervisor sucks period.
Good pay, Some easy days
Some fast paced days, Bad upper management, Outdated machines, selfish people
Process Technician (Former Employee) – Michigan – November 19, 2018
I liked working for Plastipak but I had to relocate because there was a lot of violence in the area I lived and I had teenaged children who where at risk. I would gladly go back if I could. But I am no longer in that area.
