    Good company to learn skills and training, but not to move up.

    I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Continuous training and lots of it.
    Your skills and knowledge skyrocket while working here.
    Great opportunity to learn the ropes in manufacturing.
    Very hands on.

    Cons

    My division constantly cuts hours.
    Layoffs are common.
    Promotions and wage raises are rare.
    You are better off working in corporate headquarters than manufacturing facilities.
    Carpet manufacturing industry has been experiencing a continuing downturn for the last few years and no signs of recovery.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Layoffs always start from top down... there are way too many supervisors/managers versus hourly employees.

    Pros

    They offer 401kand good pay for the work you do.

    Cons

    Management is tough. Doing extra is a liability. If you do something outside your job description and screw it up, they will fire you.
