Ball Corporation Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Ball Corporation is an American company headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado. It is best known for its early production of glass jars, lids, and related products used for home canning.

As per the news written in the metalbulletin, "The SEC alleged Ball, through a subsidiary, Formametal, S.A., acquired in March 2006, paid bribes totaling at least $106,749 to employees of the Argentine government to secure the importation of prohibited used machinery and the exportation of raw materials at reduced tariffs. The SEC alleged some of the payments and compliance failures occurred prior to Ball’s acquisition and Ball failed to take adequate steps to ensure such activities did not recur at Ball-controlled Formametal. Without admitting or denying the SEC’s allegations, Ball consented to the entry of a cease-and-desist order prohibiting Ball from further violations of the FCPA’s books and records and internal controls provisions. To resolve the action, Ball agreed to pay a civil penalty of $300,000."

Have to be an butt kisser to move up, and they promote the lazy! Management doesn’t like to hear your problems, and won’t take care of the bad seeds!"
says"I worked at Ball Corporation Cons: Forced overtime, pay usually wrong, too many people in charge wanting the same thing different ways. You are a body, not a person. If the pay in this company were less, employees would leave by the dozens. Never seen such a big business so disorganized. You will be stabbed in the back if it will benefit a coworker. Some jobs works split shifts, some don't, but you can be forced to come in on your day off at ANY time."
Former Employee - Maintenance Mechanic says"I worked at Ball Corporation full-time for more than 10 years Cons: Promise you the world then you go to lunch and find out they sold the plant and closing it"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Ball Corporation full-time for more than a year Cons: Ball believes it treats people as “family.” This is true: they hide family secrets, mistreat outsiders, and to advance you have to “be a part of the family” - you must 1) marry a current senior leader; 2) get divorced from current senior leader, than partner up with another senior leader ( lots of leadership inbreeding and relationships); 3) be a male heir to the throne. Terrible benefits Unethical treatment of employees Out dated systems and processes Good ‘ole family boys club"

Former Employee - Storeroom Attendant says"I worked at Ball Corporation full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Lost my job, what do you think? No pay, no benefits, nothing. Got royally screwed by this greedy company. The management sucked the entire time I was there and they only cared about their bonuses. The biggest joke for leadership that I have ever seen in my life, totally worthless in every aspect."
Salary (Former Employee) says"Ball is seemingly a great place if you're an hourly employee. Management does not have the best interest of their salary employees. Only if you are one of the select few, will you be able to have a decent work environment. If not, prepare to be berated, forced to basically live at the plant, be micro managed, spend your work day in meetings that could be emails. These woes are rampant throughout the BPNCA network. Also, unless you're a divisional level employee and up, you won't be able to work from home even if your job duties are conducive to you working from home. Save yourself the grief, and stay away from Ball. Cons: Everything else"
production tech (Former Employee) says"some of the people that work here are exceptional morons. frank torres and kyle froyen are a bunch of window licking idiots. they couldnt tell there rear from a hole in the ground unless the plant manger is 12" deep in it. Cons: the cans are empty"
Line tech (Former Employee) says"Work too hard for low pay always have to watch line while doing work that other people should be doing . Junk hours under staffed .. Hurry and make cans so they can sit in the warehouse for months"
Janitor (Former Employee) says"If ever there's company that takes the p**s. This one should receive a reward no appreciation of decent workers"
INDUSTRIAL MECHANIC (Current Employee) says"No paid days off, no sick days, suspension if you call out. Constant write ups and discipline from uneducated managers. Terrible management, unethical Human Resources management. Managers who will lie on employees to save themselves, co-workers that will do the same. No family time, constant forced overtime Cons: Too many to list"
Operator/ Mechanic (Former Employee) says"I hated everyday going into that place! I would get physically sick everytime I had to report back to work after my 4 days off! The Management were a bunch of Bullies Harassing employees by the management was a daily occurrence! I thank the good Lord I don't work there anymore Cons: Having to work for this Company"
Casting Operator (Former Employee) says"Micromanage everything. No minorities in management. Managers yell at people and one manager said "its not ok for people to make mistakes." Cons: The new plant manager."
Lead Hand (Team Leader) says"A work day is production only with talk about safety, the training is quick, the management team needs to be put under review there are too many personal agendas going on if your not under there thumb then you have no chance for advancement. The people try hard to make a paycheck and they get that wrong, the hardest part of the job is reading the managements mind and knowing their agendas and making it work. The best part of the day is going home. The company runs on a skeleton crew and no chance of bring in a reliable team. If you are a person that has your own opinion and challenge management in any way you won't last long. Cons: everything about the company"
Press Operator (Former Employee) says"Not a great place to work. Ball itself is an amazing company to work for. I enjoyed making quality containers, when I was given the chance to. A lot of changes on an hourly basis, which was nice. But machines break down a lot, and you have to learn to fix them, when your taught correctly. Cons: Bad management."
Maintainer/Operator of high speed coil shearing (Current Employee) says"mismanaged. disorganized. incompetent management. not interested in welfare of employees. does not give consideration of family needs of employees."
Maintainer (Former Employee) says"Using an internal coating machine, I was responsible for the quality, quantity and safety of steel food cans"
Coating Technician (Current Employee) says"management has no clue of what they are doing some managers just lean on the guard rail or on pallets of stock and stare at you most supervisors wont help just stare at you"
Press Operator (Former Employee) says"Typical day: Clock in, check schedule to find out location of the machine you will be on. I learned new skills of how to load, pack and monitor the machines-which i loved. The issue with this company is the foremen and die setters ( line mainteance) know the machines were old, they break down all day and they expect you to still hit a target goal which is impossible!!!!!! Also i was never told of a no point before 100 days which i was fired!!!! You recieve a whole point for being a min over clock in time, and after 30 work days or when they decide you are forced to work 10 hours instead of 8 hours with little warning and mandatory saturdays. Also i was hired at a higher rate but rate was (LOWER) changed due to trainig in a different area. Cons: Management suck! waste of time!"
Chief Quality Techinican (Current Employee) says"Work-life balance"
front end maintainer skilled (Former Employee) says"Managers poorly trained and visionless. Management not interested in improvement in quality and efficiency, but rather recording everything they can that can deflect blame to the hourly personnel and create a file that can protect the company from future litigation. You might get fired for something that you did wrong five or six years ago especially if they have a personal vendetta toward you without cause. Work is very fast paced and never time studied so everyone is pushed beyond physical limits and bullied if they take time to do a good job. Safety reports are frequently falsified to avoid fine or retaliation. 12 hour shifts are rotated causing increased injury incidents due to reversal of sleep roles. Pay is above average and that is the only thing that counters the terrible abuse"
metalmeccanico (Former Employee) says"Azienda che ha perso la buona reputazione che si era creata nel tempo, a causa sia di un management non all'altezza, sia di una lenta, ma graduale delocalizzazione dall'Italia, che ha già portato, a fine 2018, alla chiusura dell'altro stabilmente italiano, quello di San Martino sulla Marrucina. Cons: Nessuna possibilità di assunzione a tempo indeterminato, clima pesante"
Deco maintainer (Former Employee) says"At Ball in Fort Worth"
Coil Technician (Former Employee) says"They pay well but trust me it's not worth it, they have supervisors that like to blame the technicians for their mistakes, the place is full of rats and snakes,I have never seen a place with much stuff to put up with, you want to stay away,there is a reason they couldn't make it in weirton wv and had to move, it's a sinking ship"
Industrial Mechanic (Former Employee) says"You either fit in or don’t. Union guys were a holes and drunks. No work/home life balance 12 hrs a day 4 on 4 off of your not mandated then switches weekly between days and nights. 12hrs-4days 4days off if not mandated then 12hrs-4nights if not mandated. Then home eat shower sleep then get up and do it all over. Body has no time to adjust. Management doesn’t acknowledge any issues and uses favoritism for certain employees. Multiple people I worked with slept while operating industrail can presses/body makers, but don’t let management catch you even sitting down for a moment if your the rookie. No appreciation of employees values or home life. Left early one day to go to the emergency room and got a doctors note and called and told them I wouldn’t be in for a couple of days because of my issue and even dropped off the note and receive a attitude when I dropped it off. Few weeks later I’m called into the office and (let go) and told I can come back to pick up my tool box, so I took it as a blessing and told them no sense to come back my truck is outside let’s load it up now. This was on the night/day of dec31/Jan1 at 6am after a 12 hr shift I couldn’t care less at that point. Pay was great but experience was horrendous. I pity those who work for them. Cons: Too many"
CET (Current Employee) says"Great people to work with,but management holds grudges.no personal or sick time and excessive favoritism.Cannot trust many managers because there being controlled by HR manager. Cons: None"
Jenisse Soto Ramirez says"I want to leave a 0 review! They went in and re-run my credit without permission, which is a violation of privacy. Then after I had paid off 60% of my card, they decreased the damn limit to report to the credit bureau that I had not paid off my card. I tried to talk to someone named Richard who was an account manager and didn't seem to want to help me other than saying that they would run my credit again. Mind you it had already been hurt by a negative rating on that card so now I am extremely upset with this company. I recommend that you don't ever use them they suck! They hit you with a huge interest rate and then do this! I am paying the whole limit off and boycotting rooms to go and their credit card company SYNCHRONY!"
Gianni Bazzy says"The worst bank ever , don’t get any of their credit cards .Worst customers service ever, they are unprofessional and they will reduce your credit limit without any notice and ( or close your account for no reason )even if you are in good standing and have a perfect score ."
Natty says"What do hemerrhoids and this company have in common? That's right- not too hard to figure out, a PAIN IN THE A**!!! God Awful I could write an entire novel of how sleazy this corp. is. Multiple hits on credit score if u apply for a card, encourages you to apply for cards and then subsequently does not approve them, makes it near impossible to file any appeals. The last time I had to FAX a letter was like, 1992. They bought out PayPal and I have been on hold for hours multiple times, just getting booted from one department to another. Similar deal when I was late on another card account by 1 DAY. 1 DAY for $38 MIN PAYMENT, and THEY REFUSED TO UNDERSTAND. They have no compassion for missing by 1 DAY. PayPal Credit AND PayPal card, both denied, and hit credit score an extra time each time. I have given up trying to reason with these numbnuts, I figured I'd just vent a complaint through here to encourage any customers to STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS. PayPal Credit has NO CUSTOMER service like they used to, and their reps thru regular pay pal are rude. One had the nerve to *** interrupt me when I was speaking. Only reliable source is a "help" page on their site telling you absolutely nothing useful. Their customer service is unbelievable its so awful. Phone centers harass you every ******** day if you are even late payment a few days. Down right harassment. They absolutely s**k at life. DId I mention they changed the due date for one account without my knowledge? The only thing this slime ball corporation does is r_pe your credit score and charge exorbitant interest rates. DO NOT BOTHER."
Elise says"ONLY is this is the same company as Synchrony Bank financial. When you faithfully pay your bill on time and they then REDUCE your credit limit for no reason. Many complaints about this on BBB so apparently I'm not the only one"
