Team Leader/Production Supervisor Plastipak (Former Employee) – West Chicago – November 9, 2018
I worked at the West Chicago plant. Very good place to work. Management was awesome! HR department was the best I was ever involved with. They were very hands on with teaching their techs the in and outside of the job. Alot of communication. The only issue was the over working of the maintenance department. Those guys weren't paid enough. Over all, I wish I didnt move on from there. The West Chicago plant I would highly recommend for anyone.
Will never fire you, but will never promote you either
Corporate Quality Analyst (Current Employee) – Plymouth, MI – October 21, 2018
I have held my position at Plastipak for 4.5 years and while my job is very stable, the culture at the top of the company does not make QA a priority. While upper management has put forward capital investments in equipment for quality, they do not provide bonuses or additional compensation for employees in quality.
Plastipak was a great place to work. It was a fast paced environment that was managed properly. You received good benefits, were compensated fairly, were afforded paid vacation once you earned it, were afforded raises based on performance and were provided opportunities to advance in the company. Overtime was also available for those who wanted it.
Good benefits, fair compensation, performance-bases annual raises, paid vacation, available overtime and avancement opportunites
Engineering Maintenance Manager (Former Employee) – Champaign, IL – September 24, 2018
This review might be irrelevant because I worked there in the early 1990's, but they were always a fair company relating to benefits and advancement. The hours were crazy though... I remember working seven days a week for at least two months straight at one point. Expect long hours, but they do (did) pay overtime.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Pineville, LA – August 1, 2018
Management only takes care of their buddies and are very cut throat. In my first week as a supervisor i was told i had a certain amount of time to fire a long time employee, simply because the manager didnt like him. Once in the role I quickly realized that thier idea of leadership and mine did not align. I believed in training employees to better themselves. They did not.
MACHINE OPORATOR AND QUALITY ASSURENCE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – McCalla Alabama – July 26, 2018
The position that I held at Plastipak gave me the ability to gain knowledge that I needed to help me advance within the workplace. The environment was extremely loud as it is in most packaging companies however the management and other employees were always willing to go the extra mile to get the job done efficiently and productively.
Forklift Operator/Material Handler (Current Employee) – Plant City, FL – October 31, 2018
plastic pack goes through temp services and does not hire on or give raises when they say they will or are going to do it .they do not inform you properly and there leads like to yell and at the employes
Your goal was to keep the equipment running, and running fast. This was a high volume environment. Everyone was skilled. Plant ran on a very low level of staff. You did everything for your own equipment.
PROCESS TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Medina, OH – August 14, 2018
This job was great. Pay could have been slightly better but it was competitive. As with any large facility... some people worked while others didn't. The management was always there to assist when required. Maintenance did their job most of the time which allowed for much less downtime.

Process Technician (Former Employee) – Medina, OH 44256 – June 25, 2018
Decent pay, a lot of hours. if you like money and not having a life, this is a job to be at. People are really nice and its clean. Benefits are good as well. Management and HR staff are good people, very understanding and nice. They have a cafeteria and company who cooks food and plenty of vending machines. They do have strict rules on having food and beverages out on the floor, but they do provide water coolers in most of the departments though out the facility.
cooked meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. decent pay and lots of OT
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.
WAREHOUSE PACKAGE HANDLER (Current Employee) – Pineville, LA – October 30, 2018
The job was not bad I was a temp I had been interveiewd to be hired on and I went through the two interveiw waiting for the third and they just kept giving me the run around and excuses and never countinued the 3rd interview I got tierd of waiting.
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 8, 2018
Decent company to work for, benefits are nice. Just long hours and sometimes you will be required to work 6-7 days in a week. Management on the supervisory level lack communication, pay increases don't be that much, corporate is tight with their money. Training could be a bit better, seen a lot of new hires quit soon after.
Warehouse Lead (Former Employee) – East Longmeadow, MA 01028 – October 4, 2018
Plastipak is a production facility so the job is very fast paced. It is a hot environment but they do allow for water breaks and provide adequate hydration. management is very receptive to the employee and will work you with if there are issues.
Factory Line Worker (Former Employee) – Champaign, IL – September 22, 2018
It was temp job so I need to find,something more stable. The work was great but as a temp I was only making 200 a week that wasn't enough to take care of my children. Someday where down days meaning we didn't work.
Process Technician and Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Lakeland, FL – September 26, 2018
Good job for talented and flexible people willing to work. Can go from a laid back to very intensive work in a moment. If you keep a cool head, and stay task oriented, it will work out well for you overall.
