Not very family friendly
Maintenance Supervisor/Lead tech (Former Employee) –  Florence, KY25 July 2017
Compensation was good but work hours as well as one weekend a month off leaves little time for family. Managment is good as well as benefits. A little more time off would be a huge plus.

This was my favorite place I have ever worked
Quality/Continuous Improvement /Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Greenville, OH18 July 2016
The chance for advancement at Greif is great. I did all production positions there. The 22 yrs I was there I was able to go from production to the chance to take Operational Excellence Training and be involved in the transformation of lean manufacturing. I then became the Process Improvement Project Associate.
Pros
Union shop
Cons
No exceptions for attendance

Old factories, too much travel
Electrical Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Florence, KY24 February 2016
Corporation had a pattern of buying older companies and converting to container manufacturing without spending necessary capital for reliable equipment. Instead, would send in my group to 'band-aid' or just get equipment to work.
Pros
Variety of plants, personnel, opportunities.
Cons
>90% travel, demanding production schedules to try and work around, personalities.

muy buen ambiente laboral.
operario de produccion (Former Employee) –  Tigre, B25 August 2015
En un dia tipico de trabajo produciamos alrededor de 4000 tambores en un solo turno, aprendi a hacer varias cosas, como planograf de tapa, manejo de balancines y la colocacion de burletes en los tambores para que no pierda su contenido. Tenia muy buena relacion con la gerencia, y con mis compañeros tambien ya que como dije anteriormente, habia un buen clima laboral. La parte mas complicada era, planograf, pero solo me costo al principio. Me gusto aprender todo lo que aprendi, y el buen clima laboral que habia en la empresa en general.
Pros
Seguro medico

Trevliga kollegor, Stressigt
Maskinoperatör inom plastindustri (Former Employee) –  Falkenberg, N11 February 2015
En typiskt arbetsdag - Förberedning av order, kontroll av maskin, vickning av kartonger för maskinen.

Lärde mig hur maskinen fungerade, kunde fixa en del små fel av maskinen.
Arbetskollegorna var mycket trevliga. men blev ganska osocialt med tanke på väldigt hög volym i verkstaden.

Fanns ingen svår del, Ganska simpelt arbete. trivs väldigt bra i stress.

Bästa delen av jobbet var absolut arbetstiderna. Jobbade 2-skift

07:00 - 14:00
14:00 - 23:00

Vice President, Global Communications (Former Employee) –  Delaware, Ohio29 August 2014
Greif has been a great place to work. The Greif Way is observed in most places around the world.
The economic downturn created a continuing drag on earnings and some strategy missteps contributed to some stress within the company, but overall, it is a decent place to work.
