HR is biased due to inappropriate relationship with Supervisor

Very toxic stressful environment. Can't reach out to HR for assistance because she is biased due to an ongoing relationship with IBC Supervisor. Very unprofessional and she runs plant management. Change of mangement is desperately needed!

My advice to you is STAY AWAY
Supervisory (Former Employee) –  Alsip, IL15 March 2018
Very fast paced environment. Long hours every day. Unreliable equipment. Lack of leadership from the top; lots of great ideas, but no direction or solutions offered; just fix it! HR is useless and vindictive and is at the root of the problems in this facility.HR is not to be trusted. Backstabbing supervisors who are "very close" to the HR person and get promoted or transferred instead of terminated! This is a sinking ship...STAY AWAY!
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
No personal life. No leadership. Vindictive HR department; revolving door

Productive warehouse
Winder Operator (Former Employee) –  Deer Park, TX9 January 2018
A typical day at the Greif warehouse checking all orders demanded before assembly start up time. What would follow were daily safety meetings, and groups would share safety tips from past days to ensure quality production. On the floor everyone had there designated spots, and waited for tubes to come down the assembly line to add whatever it needed. I learned a lot of safety procedures, and really enjoyed the culture for everybody was helpful all the time. The hardest part of the job had to be turning in orders on time, and the constant change of heat and cold from seasons. Overall I enjoyed working there, and I would wish now that I had never left.
Pros
Great long hours
Cons
Short breaks

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

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.
