    Pros

    One of the top training programs in the country and probably in the world. In the first couple months I've been here I've learned almost more than I did in all four years of college. This is an amazing opportunity!

    Cons

    Some parts of the program are new and therefore have a few minor kinks to work out, but those are too be expected anywhere. I'm very impressed so far.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I'm really glad to be a part of this team. Upper management makes the whole company feel like a big family.

    Pros

    401k, shift schedule good balance of empioyees

    Cons

    insurance, lack of promotions, every promotion on the buddy system , employee recently promoted to maintenance supervisor , was incompetent in productions, yet he had an old plant manager buddy made sure he was taken care of this guy wouldn't know a open end from a box end wrench . job opening was never posted , only upper management makes a decent salary, lower line management are treated like Asian pigs place one on bottom of pen and one on top of pen, we on bottom just get the scraps and waste from the top pens, yet the CEO makes over 16 million with his package

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your floor employees for all their hard work, without them their is no Mohawk, You talk a GOOD GAME BUT IT'S TIME YOU WALK THE WALK, If you want to be the best treat your employee's like they are the beat

    Pros

    If you enjoy working in a fast paced environment with real authority to implement change then Mohawk is the place for you.

    Cons

    Mohawk doesn't promote community involvement for its managers at levels of other similar sized corporations. All emphasis is on moving Mohawk forward as a profitable corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your managers to become more active in their communities and let everyone know just how great Mohawk is as a company.

    Not top management heavy - decisions made in a relatively short time instead of weeks or months.
    Not afraid to take risks and reap the rewards.

    Cons

    Total lack of training within the manufacturing division.
    No set standards to follow.
    $ runs the show with ultimately no regard for the employees well being

    Advice to Management

    Act like it's a business and not like it's a personal play toy.
    Treat your employees with respect and show them you care all the time, not just when someone is hurt.
    Provide adequate advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Always willing to help others with superb teamwork.

    Cons

    Long 12 hour shift with little or no opportunity for any breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Aging equipment that continues to break down can only be fixed for short periods of time. Employees that hustle all shift long to get production really need some incentives.
