    I worked at Great Southern Wood full-time (More than a year)


    Employees gain rapid access and vast knowledge of various business units in a short period of time.


    Low Pay. Lies about rapid advancement. No upward mobility within the next 20 years. Pay ceiling. Management is very quick to remind you to stay in your place and don't ask for anything. Company is located in small town Alabama. All locations are in the middle of nowhere!

    Advice to Management

    Get realistic about what you have to do to keep employees happy these days. Good benefits, better working environments, better pay. When someone ask you why you're the only company not offering these things, don't just make up a lie and then fire them....
