Frustrations never cease...
Maintenance (Former Employee), Hammond, LAJanuary 31, 2016
Pros: Benefits package
Cons: Management
Management is a mess, hours are cut frequently. They get you hyped up in interview, with all kinds of promises, but it's all a mirage. They don't give equal opportunities to all employees for getting their time. Some people get overtime, while others can't even work 40 hrs in that same week, in the same department.
The only perk is the benefits package.

Warehouse Associate/Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Henderson, NVJanuary 30, 2016
Pros: hours
Cons: lack of hours due to being contract work
I learned to operate different types of bottle assembly lines. The most enjoyable part of the job was the consistancy. The hardest part of the job was lack of work hours.

Process Engineer (Former Employee), NKC Mo.January 29, 2016
Pros: Great people, culture
Cons: poor leader ship, out of touch with expectations.
Graham was a great place to work when I first started to work there,but since the buyout by a big Corp. it has declined in moral and leadership. Still not a bad place to work but there is better for those who seek it.

It gets the bills paid. It seems that each shift is looking to pass off any work they can and nothing is ever done to correct it.

Injection mold machine mechanic (Current Employee), Cartersville, GANovember 3, 2015
Pros: Safe, reliable, and predictable work environment.
Cons: Run with skeleton crew very often
Safe, reliable, and predictable work environment that hires without regard to the past issues of applicants. The Management encourages the employees to share ideas and rewards suggestions. Safety is priority number one.

Plant maintenance skill levels are very low which impedes the process to become a more productive plant.
Quality Manager (Current Employee), North Kansas City, MOOctober 26, 2015
Graham Packaging is a plastic blow molding operation that makes plastic laundry soap bottles. The plant is considered a "red" plant as hit is not making its' financial goals. The plant has been neglected for the past several years from a maintenance perspective; which has been a significant driver of getting the plant to its' current state. The company appears committed to keeping this location as evidenced by the large amount of capital improvements being completed.

Utility (Former Employee), Joplin, MOOctober 9, 2015
Pros: Um...nice vending machines?
Cons: Pay, benefits, hours, management.
Could have had better pay. Place is practically ran by Temps. I was fortunate enough to be hired straight through the company. You can work your way up...to machine operator. Which pays far less than other machine operator positions in the area. The job, utility, is mind numbingly boring.

Avoid this place like the plaque
maintenance (Former Employee), York PASeptember 28, 2015
Pros: breaks
Cons: management, poor decision making from management, poor structure
I was a maintenance tech that was responsible for keeping things running. i learned alot about how blow molding works more about different kinds of support equipment, management thinks they own their departments, some of the employees are good some shouldn't have a job but im not the boss either, what made the job hard is that i was consistently short and always on the run because noone wanted to fix anything the right way. learning new things all the time what good for me cause i was entertained.
