    I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay is about all they have to offer

    Cons

    Management talks to you like a dog, very rude with foul language. Defend yourself and you are fired. No air conditioning. It is a job just to get up and go into work. Wish I could find something else with the same pay. Management gets their family time where in the summer we work every weekend and in the winter we are lucy to get 25 or 30 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you people like you want to be treated.

    Worse job ever!

    I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not many pros... a weekly check is about it. Hopefully some changes are coming.

    Cons

    Where do I start? QUALITY is nonexistent! Micromanaged to the highest level. Zero communication between departments. Very UNSAFE environment, unorganized ect!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your hourly employees! We are begging for help. Setup some kind of training for new employees. Safety could use some tweaking also.

    I worked at Goodman Manufacturing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Quarterly Bonuses (sometimes $300, sometimes $50)

    Cons

    A Goodman Branch consists of 3 employees. A Branch Manager, a CSR, and a Warehouse Employee. You can expect that the CSR and the warehouse employee complete all of the work while your Branch Manager sits in his office playing with his smart phone and talking crap about customers/clients to other local branch Managers. (PS, the Branch Manager typically earns about 3x the amount that a CSR or Warehouseman earns.

    They seem to give you an impressions that you have to fear or be intimidated by upper management. They are always mentioning that the "director of this" or the "operations manager of that" is coming in to visit and you have to play kiss-ass the whole time they're there. From my experience, they're all normal everyday people and just expect you to do the job that's assigned to you.

    Raises? Incentive? Never heard of it. I began working for Goodman in Nov 12 and resigned in Jan 2014 (15 months) . Not once did my branch manager mention a mid-year or annual review. And don't be surprised if that increase you've been desperately waiting for is any more than $.50 ----- "Sorry we couldn't increase your pay, but here's a $25 gift card to Target!" (great place to shop right now)

    If you're wondering why your sales might be suffering or you're losing customers, look to your managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified individuals, not referred associates within the company. Match the managers salary to the work they actually put in. The workers want decent wages, not gift cards.

    Treat us with a respect and don't take us for granted. I know that, to you, we are just a number than can easily be replaced. But while you sit behind your computer all day, we're the ones who see the problems with your company.

    Pros

    Deciveing name "GOODMAN" nothing else worht mentioning

    Cons

    Many to list. Management from the top down, they treat people like a piece of trash. They do not have respect to Human or God creation in general. Family life forget about it, They give you cell phone, don't get excited, you must be connected to worjk 24/7, you get a 150 emails on everage daily, if you dont keep up with it, you are get in the hole. On a Sunday I did not answer my phone at 6 in the morning, but when I got up at 8, I saw the miss call, called my boss back, I was litterly belittled, degraded, insulted and cursed at, which was the norm day in day out. He forgot to submit important report for Monday morning so he wanted me to log in and work on my day off while he is enjoying his time out of town.
    You are not to make decision on your own, BOSS will bluntly say:
    "Who the .... authorized you". Do I have to go ON and ON....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your best assets. Get rid of the abuser, manapulitive managers.

    I worked at Goodman Manufacturing part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    SOME Friendly people, they actually make the place worth going to. If it wasn't for some many different funny/amazing personalities, the place would be more miserable than it already is. MANAGERS: The ones I've talk with were pretty cool i guess. Can't say that about all because I've only met a few.

    Cons

    Wow ,I don't know where to start because I've seen A LOT the few days I've been. The 1st thing I have to throw out there is "there is no organization" none what so ever. If you're getting hired through a temp service and you go through orientation and receive a badge to start the job....... Don't get to happy because when you actually get to the factory & clock in you may or may not get chose by the supervisors. It's a WIN or LOSE, They pick over people. If you don't get chose the day you start they tell you "sorry, we don't have anything for you today, come tomorrow and we'll find you something". The sad part is that it does not stop there. You can come day after day and they still may tell you to keep coming back until you finally stop coming. They don't tell you that at the temp service. They should tell us "even if you get your badge it's still not a guarantee you'll work when you get to goodman."If you have to drive far to get there I'll say don't go, it's a waste of gas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the employees are actually good workers from what I've saw.. I have one in mind he actually took his time while training me and did a way better job than the first person they stuck me with.The manager refused to believe he helped me and mmoved me to a diff area.I feel they deserve better treatment, the place is already no good. The reason why they stay and put up with it is for the check of course, but other then that I believe the employees will flip and show how they really feel if they didn't need the money... Other than that fhe two managers or supervisors I've talked to are pretty koo. They just sugar coat the fact that they don't want you, which wastes people's time,gas, and life which I feel isn't right. I bet they would be koo ppl outside of work tho. My advice to you is "form more organization and tell people the truth from the get go to save YOU and UPCOMING employees the trouble"

    I have been working at Goodman Manufacturing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -You get paid on time
    -Your job is secure (they can't fire anyone because the turnover is so great)
    -Most of the people (non-management) you work with are nice and helpful

    Cons

    -Non-competitive pay, no career advancement, no leadership from senior management
    -Not a people centered culture - it's all about getting work out the door and "value engineering" (nickel and diming the products to the point of poor quality.)
    -No incenitives for hard workers (no bonus, profit sharing, etc.) so people aren't invested in their work.
    -Constant turnover at all levels of organization - only mediocre "talent" remains, and it shows in the work.

    Pros

    It is a job, but you earn your pay

    Cons

    Pay does not compensate for the work expected of you
    Supervisors and upper management show you no respect at all, some will cuss you
    Company has no interest in the community
    Expects you to work overtime at last minute without any warning
    Company has no respect for employee's family

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the employees provide the means for your salary not the other way around...if we didn't bust our butts, then who would? Surely not you!

    I worked at Goodman Manufacturing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The seem to be permanent but temporary pay!!!!!

    Cons

    I worked for this company for almost five years and gave everything I had to this company. One month and a few days from five years they decided to terminate me and use my absence (not technically a absence) as a excuse when I was being sent home due to the lack of work. They even had me working many positions from leak tester, coil repair, bender and the list goes on. They fired me and made me look bad instead of just owning up. You would think they would feel bad after letting you go but then they kick you in the butt with the lies. Five years and a bad reference. There is a man upstairs and this business won't get to far too long. I understand the economy went bad and making $17 a hour I was one of many they let go. It is no secret why but why lie. The sad thing is this company has no care for their employess, had they been concerned they would have thought about all the people they let go and their families. Please do not trust this company and think you can make career with them. They are hiring people and when they get to a certain pay they terminate and find someone else through the temp. agency.
