    Pros

    The pay is decent, good benefits

    Cons

    working for a company that keeps its customer and employees in the dark, you can't call anyone to get production or shipping information, they just want you to read a script. never enough help, constantly losing/firing employees. no matter how good you are they always want you to be better, it is never good enough. There is no ropm for promotions/different job opportunities. suoervisors micromanage amployees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    supervisors micromanage, nothing is ever good enough.

    Pros

    There is nothing good about Mohawk at least for its labor force.

    Cons

    Discriminates against disabled employees. I was denied a promotion because of a disability I have. I could have sought legal action but thankfully I found a job somewhere else. My advice to anyone seeking employment here; Please look somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't enslave your workforce by coercing new hires to sign anti-union agreement contracts for compensation. Also the open door policy is a joke and anyone with common sense could see that it is simply a legal hedge that Mohawk has to create the illusion that it cares about its employees whilst placing every labor employee in chains. For instance providing basic healthcare and yet denying an employee time off (Unpaid time to be exact) to seek medical attention.

    Pros

    A decent group of coworkers that you can talk with about the miserable environment.

    Cons

    3,000 emails a day. Nonstop unrealistic demands that you couldn't even attempt to accomplish because you have to be on to many demotivating conference calls. So over managed it's counterproductive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find something else to do to justify your job other than pound on the people that are actually doing productive work. Tracking your employees with electronic devices? Really? Creepy! There's not one person I know at Mohawk that's happy and they all have one foot out the door. You have been able to retain and torture people due to the bad economy and that's the only reason.

    Pros

    They offer good benefits to the employees.

    Cons

    People are promoted into different departments without knowledge of running these departments. it's not how hard you work it is who you are friends with in upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Major decisions are made with the bottom dollar in mind and not what needs to get done.

    Pros

    NONE!..........Not unless you consider harassment and intimidation a good thing!

    Cons

    The only way you will get treated right is if you kiss-up to whomever your manager, and tell tales about your fellow employees.

    Career growth only comes if you leave the company, or know people that are very high up in the company that would move you up themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your HR staff are EXTREMELY LAZY, and not doing anything to foster the growth of talent within the company.

    I left the company because the LAZY HR staff refused to talk to me about other possible opportunities within the company even though I made it known to several of them. I went somewhere else and DOUBLED my salary in a higher role.

    Pros

    Great pay. Will always have something too do regardless of what shift you may be working on .

    Cons

    Very , very biased and racist plant toward African Americans . Out of the possible 1200 hundred employees, I would say maybe less than 50 are Black. Maybe 1 African American is in a management position. I was told I would never be in management at that plant.

    Pros

    Descent pay... however not for what you have to put up with

    Cons

    They treat their employees like they are in grammar school... Constant threats of punishment or dismissal. Moral is terrible. I left a while back because of this constant badgering. I just wanted to come in a do a good job...and I did a good job! It was never ever enough. One time they would tell you how great you did...and the next is that you did not answer the phone correctly or you did not end the call correctly. There is also so much office politics it is un-real... If they do not come together, the house will fall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the threats. People are more willing to do a good job with positive attitudes. Value your employees instead of constantly bringing them down.

    Pros

    You get to look for a new job if you are over 50.

    Cons

    Mohawk will destroy your life if you believe you can work til retirement. It appears from the last round of layoffs that old people are the first to go. Salaried personnel jobs are expendable without cause, except to make room for young college kids who work for peanuts and non existent health benefits. If you make it into your 50s you better start looking for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice? They already know how to pile up cash, isn't that all that matters?
