Blow Mold Operator (Former Employee), Levittown, PA – April 9, 2013
Pros: alot of overtime, for the most part some very nice people to work with
Great pay and medical benefits were very good. At times the job could be stressful, but overall a good place to work. Problem was getting the machines updated from corporate like most of the other plants in Graham. But I guess that's the price you pay in a union plant. Plant closed in 2009.
Quality Assurance Technician (Former Employee), Prattville, AL – March 26, 2013
Cons: they lie.
I worked here for only a month. I moved 100 miles after accepting a job with Graham. Spent money out of my own pocket to move. My first week there, I only worked 4 out of 5 days I was supposed to work because they said I could not because of needing to save money. Same thing my second week. Come my third week of work, I was called into the office in – more... the am before my pm shift to be let go without any type of warning. I did not receive compensation for moving myself and family after accepting this job, nor did I receive any type of compensation for my wasted time. VERY WRONG ON THEIR PART! To hire someone only to lay them off 3 weeks later. – less

A typical day was based on workin on assembly lines, packaging items like dishwashing liquid, detergent and other cleaning products onto trucks so they can shipped. Throughout the shift , i worked with a team of good workers that our overall goal was to get the job done in a certain time frame. The most enjoyable part was working at a fast pace.
Quality Control Auditor (Former Employee), York, PA – August 8, 2012
Pros: with the revolving shifts allowing someone to work 15 days a month and still get 16 hours overtime, this employer offers great work to life balance.
Cons: when production lines are not running smoothly, it can be a little stressful.
I think Graham Packaging is a very good place to work. It has full benefits packages available for someone to choose what fits them best. Compensation is balanced with benefits. The work culture is relaxed when production lines are running smoothly.There is a high standard to the quality and quantity of product made with safety first. Due to the high – more... demand of plastic bottling products this employer has excellent job security. Advancement is available if you want it. Management staff is knowledgeable to the business. With the revolving shifts allowing someone to work 15 days a month and still get 16 hours overtime, this employer offers great work to life balance. – less
