It's been a while since i worked at PEP but it was a decent job and people enjoyed working there for the most part.

If you can get hired on 1st shift, the management is all good people and everything moves along pretty fast. you come to work and do your job and go home, not very stressful. still its a large plant that is not known for paying alot, and people come and go, for that reason theres spots open to move around

Don't do it

They treat everyone there as just a non Inteligent person. If you have not been here for 25 years or more you will never move up. Plus most importantly they do not care about a home life. They will make you work extra hours all the time regardless of personal time needed.

This company takes pride in what they manufacture. Everyone is kind and most people are helpful. They are pretty flexible with the hours you work.

Make it a success

It all comes down to an environment of what you want to do as an individual. Going forward starting out as an inspector I learned a great deal took me to the career to where I’m at I am now as an operational excellence manager with another company hats off to Port Erie plastics and the ownership of the management team.

miserable culture , your just a #

your treated like garbage if your not a woman . and god forbid you talk about problem and how to solve them. the only advancement and raises are based on how much you kiss the supervisors butts . i can't find one good thing about this company except for the employees that work are good people. management just treats everyone on favoritism .

Port Erie Plastics

Port Erie Plastics is a very dirty place to work. The workers are nice but management is so disorganized I don't know how they stay open. Plastek is a much nicer place.

A Pretty good place to work at

Overall a pretty good place to work at. Just run a machine all day. Nothing too hard and there’s nothing terribly fast in my opinion. Occasionally you’ll get a bad partner to work with but that wouldn’t really be the companies fault. Here you Pretty much get 40 hours a week.

Not a great place to work

Some of the supervisors were scandalous. Management are pricks and think they can do what they want to whoever they want. They don't care about employees.


It's a job


They don't care about employees, Low ball ya unless they like you.

A decent little shop

the jobs are not very demanding, but you must be able to keep up with the machines and the demand of the company. It can be very stressful on the feet and back.


Decent Pay, Full time


The hours take your whole day

Overall, a good place to work.

Port Erie plastics will provide you a good work experience, with minimal room to advance. Depending on job, the wages are competitive. For the most part, it is not a very stressful place to work.


Punch in for only 8 hours, 3 breaks included, 10, 20, 10


Not great wages, little advancement opportunities, high health insurance

Hard, long Labor

The days at Port Erie are long, and you are expected to complete your assigned task quickly and efficiently. Each of the machine operator positions requires repeating the same small task for eight hours, with two short breaks for 10 minutes, and lunch for 20 minutes. The job is easy to learn, requiring almost zero qualifications for most positions, but you will be working very hard in those positions. However, The pay is fair because of the nature of each of the positions is so simple.


Extremely stable hours, there is always work to be done.


Extremely physically taxing, with little pause for breaks.
