Compared to other wage slave jobs, better than most.

LTO (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, KS

I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood pay. Company takes safety seriously. Good equipment. Ok vacation time. A lot of good people work for shaw industries.

ConsThe only difference between a 30 year employee and a day labor brought in for the week is the employee has more vacation. Advancement greatly enhanced with "Atlas Shrugged" type mindset. Job description changes moment to moment as management deems necessary.

Advice to Senior ManagementRequire lower management to attend management training classes. Statements like "We appreciate the job you are doing" are meaningless if long term employees are told they are no different than a new recruit. Treated as a "Labor Unit".

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time for more than a year

ProsIt's a really good place to work and has good opportunities for entry level positions. There a lot of really genuine people that are willing to help.

Solid company in a small town

I worked at Shaw Industries full-time for more than 5 years

ProsProfessional environment, high rate of training and development, easy to change jobs within the company, excellent management trainee program for recent grads, most managers have engineering degrees.

ConsBureaucratic, few female managers and no female executives, headquarters and most plants located in small towns, old school, top heavy with too many management layers, ineffective employees seem to be protected against losing their jobs, "sink or swim" culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow flex time and telecommuting part-time in more departments.
