It is somewhat fast paced, but a very casual environment to work in. They have the latest technology and work very hard to keep up with new technology.

If your friends with the shipping team your job is easy if not your not going to last long
Production 1CD (Former Employee) –  Denver, CO5 October 2018
Plant manager and shipping lead are best friends and pass off any responsibility to the rest of the crew depending on if they like you are not..plus everybody is a friend of a friend so it's less likely you'll fit in and most likely be the "Work Horse"
Wouldn't recommend working hear unless you really really have to...or know the shipping lead.

Two thumbs down
Material Flow Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OH8 February 2018
One of the perks of this place is the vacation time you start to accumulate right off the bat. But that's about it. The pay rate isn't very good, and the people interaction is even worse. The people will suck the positivity right out of you. A lot of disrespectful people in the building (that includes management), There is always an issue.
Pros
Vacation time accumulated immediately
Cons
Not a pleasant place to work

Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OH14 December 2017
I learned a lot from this job because I had to fulfill all the orders on time. The most enjoyable part was that all of my colleagues were very professional and at the same time friendly.
Pros
Plant supervision cares about us, good benefits. Opportunities for people that want to grow and work hard, recognition given for hard work.
Cons
Bathrooms are filthy.

Decent company to work for depending on your responsibilities.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Newark, CA28 November 2017
Decent company. Good management. Some positions require you to work around chemicals. All of them are below the OSHA minimum levels but there is a definite odor if you work with them.

A fast paced job that is not pleasant to work at.
Lead Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OH1 November 2017
This is a chemical company that is a very stressful, fast-paced job that gives improper training to its employees due to their need to push out more product. It is also an unsafe environment where people are not properly certified to run large machines. It wears out its employees with constant mandatory overtime. And if you have an issue with your superiors or coworkers, your issue will not be resolved in a timely manner, which creates a tenser working environment. There is also the issue of family members of employees that move higher in the ranks without being more qualified within a less amount of time in the company than others who deserve it.
Cons
poor training, not safe. favoritism.

Sales (Current Employee) –  Ohio14 September 2017
It is an honor to be employed by Oatey. The great people make for an excellent work environment. You are expected to get your job done and excel within your position. You are challenged to become better within your role and to advance your career.
Oatey is also very involved in the community and provides an ample amount of opportunities if that is something of interest.
I would highly recommend a career at Oatey to anyone.
Pros
Great people, benefits, pay, environment, gym at office
