I have been working at Owens Corning full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Excellent team environment with opportunities for training and development. Passionate company that cares about it's employees, customers, and suppliers.

Cons

Some departments are less fleixble than others in terms of flexible hours or working from home when necessary. But that is all dependent on how critical it is that in your role you are at your desk during set hours or if the job can be successfully completed away from your desk.

    I worked at Owens Corning full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers were good to work with, no problems. Pay & benefits are good for area. Good product.

    Cons

    Reneged on training OC agreed to provide at time of interview. Also OC corp required safety training was skipped yet was expected perform before Arch/Flash trained. To-do lists were waiting for parts to be purchased. Reprogrammed final palletizer to reduce downtime and significant increase in plant output was rewarded w/ termination without any credit days before probationary period was over and full benefits were due. Later discovered previous tech likewise terminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If OC corp. electrical stds. exist, they were not found.Drawings are poorly maintained and was reprimanded for attempting to bring this plant up to date, as a waste of time. Intrenched "old school" maint. mgmt. is nepotist; mostly friends or family. No regular system backups, as might be expected. There is no headroom for controls and found overloaded and overheated conditions. Had to purchase electrical components on my own in order to procure basic resistors. Funding for controls, or even hand tools must be begged from MEs while EL controls needs are chronically ignored. Expect downtime will increase as capital investment in new lines will suffer downtime operating above max temps.
