I have been working at USG full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The pay is GREAT! Benefits are great! Two weeks vacation after a year (if you take advantage of buying a week as offered). Talk of going to 4 shifts that would swing, 12 hour shifts, 3 days on/4 days off then 4 days on/ 3 days off. Would then have every other weekend off! Would work half a year. Schedule set for a year ahead of time.

Cons

No weekends off. Sometimes work 11-17 days straight (with a day off here and there). Tough on family life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go to the 4 shifts swing. The set schedules would be a HUGE moral builder with employees!!!

    I worked at USG as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    For engineering majors, great opportunity for fast advancement through the ranks and many opportunities to travel throughout the US by transferring to numerous plant locations. Reward superior performance and loyalty with quick advancement.

    Cons

    All engineering jobs lead to management positions. If you enjoy design and applying your degree, there are less roads to advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring experienced engineers for mining engineer positions.
