From love to Hate.

Transporter "trainer" (Former Employee)
Simpsonville, SC

I worked at Milliken full-time for more than a year

Prosthe people on the floor.

ConsI was a trainer, but couldn't train anyone right without one of bosses pulling me away all the time. Then they get mad because the transporter can't do his job. they make full time milliken jobs full time temp jobs, and dont try to transfer because they will fire you. look at me.

Advice to Senior Managementstep back look around, the company is not doing as good as you report to your bosses.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Love it or hate it relationship

Intern (Former Employee)
Greenville, SC

I worked at Milliken as an intern for less than a year

ProsReally relaxed environment, no pressure or stress

ConsPolitics, no drive to get anything accomplished, no internal development of employees

You will never get promoted unless your boss leaves or dies, even if he is no good.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire from within and get rid of the people who don't accomplish anything

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Milliken Culture Change

Industrial Engineering Manager (Former Employee)
Greenville, SC

I worked at Milliken

ProsSince Milliken only hires only top notch associates, has strong training programs and moves associates to many different jobs within the company it is a great place to start a career.

There is a high leve of professionalism of the company.

ConsUnfortunately the company is currently experiencing a major culture change. The new young CEO is overreacting to the current economic downturn by eliminating scaling back many of the bedrocks of the company such as training programs and pay for performance.

Growth potential is limited since a large portion of the companies products are marketed in mature and declining markets.

Advice to Senior ManagementRevive your training programs and evaluate your cost cutting of management associates more in terms of contribution instead of just an associates age or salary.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A great stepping stone.

Supply Chain Manager (Former Employee)
Marietta, SC

I worked at Milliken

ProsGreat job out of college. Earns you a lot of prestige in other industries.

ConsFeedback about individual performance is very limited. It is a "good ol' boys" club. You work a lot of hours. A lot.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more feedback. Promote an environment of openness about performance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
