From Everything.Sucks

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."

"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!"

"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."

Former Employee - Mechanic says

"Overworked people people are sick. Managers with no experience because the experienced managers quit or retired. Unsafe."

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 overtimeNoneToo many to list"
