Fast paced but fun to work
Packer (Former Employee), Monroeville, OHOctober 10, 2014
Factory work can be very boring and routine. At berry plastics the people made it worth while. They were so understanding, and very kind. I loved working there. Making the products was so much fun, since you learned so much about the products itself.

Machine Operator/Packer (Former Employee), Battleboro, NCOctober 8, 2014
Pros: every other weekend off

A typical day at work for me would be to come in a pack trash bags at fast paste cross training quality checks every 30 minutes and lite cleaning when line is down and picking up scrap off the floor and working 12 hour shifts

Can't imagine working anywhere else
Packer (Current Employee), Monroe, LaOctober 2, 2014
Pros: hr team, benefits and pay
Cons: 12 hours rotating shifts
Berry Plastics has gone through some major changes the last few years. It is no longer a local company but one that is world wide. I feel our HR department listens to us and gives us great advice on multiple topics. All the changes that HR has been making the last few years has benefited the employees. The Management team in the Monroe facility clearly – more... has an open door policy and I have never heard them or either HR Manager curse at anyone. If your not scared to do a little work this is the place for you!! – less

Excellent workplace, but job is being transferred out of state in February
Metrologist/ Lab Technician (Current Employee), Lancaster, PASeptember 3, 2014
Pros: enjoy almost all facets of the job
Cons: job is being transferred out of state
I have worked at Berry Plastics since January of 2008. I just recently found out that our jobs are being transferred out of state in February. Berry is a fast paced work environment that expects flexibility and quick turn around times for project completion. While at Berry, I received the Diamond of the Year award in 2012 (Employee of the Year).

Good Place to work
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), WoodstockSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: good benefits, friendly environment, over time when needed
Cons: hr would round down 3:44 to 3:30 on the time cards
Report at 7 am for daily meeting, after about 20 minutes start the days required tasks and duties. I learned a great deal while I was working there about injection molding machines and accessory equipment vital in the production and decoration of plastic parts. Management was nice and friendly, soometimes people would take advantage of that and not – more... work as hard as possible. I got along with everyone and liked everyone I worked with. The hardest part was when there was a lack of work to be done and I would have to figure out productive usage of my time without supervision. The thing I loved about the job was the ability to use my knowledge and fabrication skills to complete tasks and solve problems – less

Sucks
Temporary Operator (Current Employee), Lawrence, KSJuly 18, 2014
Pros: not hard to do the job
Cons: little benefits, lazy staff, poor communication, and lunches are not paid.
I really dislike the job as it seems I have to work all the time just to make ends meet. I feel another job could be more than beneficial to me as I could take time off, work more overtime, take days and have holidays off which I currently don't feel secure enough to do.

Straight forward work by the day.
Machine Operator (Current Employee), Evansville, INJune 22, 2014
Pros: we get reward parties time to time
Cons: healthcare is expensive.. could be better
Packing and checking quality of parts daily. I've learned alot about the outcome of our hard work we do daily. There are different employee's with different mindsets.. You have to adjust to each one. The hardest part may just be trying to understand what is expected cause things change by the day. The most enjoyable part of working is when you have – more... finished a job and you know everything is what you were put out to accomplish. It makes the day or night that much better. – less
