    I worked at Encore Wire

    Pros

    Weekly pay, always overtime available, great benefits. They provide almost everything that you need from boots and lunchboxes to tools and Turkey or ham for the holidays.

    Cons

    They run 24/7 so be prepared for 12 hr shifts and 60hrs/week. If you're lucky you'll only work 8hr shifts.
    Almost everyone will treat you like you're not there until hired for full-time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management, plant managers and supervisors. Get to know your workers a little better especially when it comes to new employees.

    I worked at Encore Wire full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is no good reason for anyone to work for this company unless you get in on the salary job side.

    Cons

    Hot in air conditioned,cold little heat in warehouse,if you could not finish assigned orders in your 12 hour shift you were forced to stay and finish no matter how long it took.There was little benefits and small pay increases once hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care a little more about the people who make this company a success.

    Pros

    Great people and lay back environment. Good benefits too.

    Cons

    I'd definitely say communication among departments... Not having procedures in place allows for lack of project coordination and inefficiencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve on communication procedures urgently, and put more emphasis on the people.

    I worked at Encore Wire

    Pros

    Encore is a very profitable company...they have never had layoffs, even in a down economy. They are growing at a nice rate and seem to be careful with their investments.

    Cons

    It seems to be somewhat of a good-ole-boy's club, when it comes to upper management. From what I heard it is difficult to break into upper management from within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees work hard to make your product for you. Give them raises and regular performance reviews. Also, in my opinion, if you are unhappy with someone's performance, you should constructively confront them about it before letting them go.
