    Pros

    I like the hours that I work. My hours are 2:00am until 10:00am in the morning. I'm off every weekend, so thats a plus.

    Cons

    The people I work with are not nice at all. When you give a hundred percent you should at least be notice for the team effort you put in.

    Pros

    Mohawk is a healthy organization that continued to grow and evolve even when others were shutting their doors. Mohawk believes in investing in the future. Mohawk offers an excellent tuition reimbursement benefit and 401K package with excellent matching percentages. Mohawk provides extensive training opportunities. Those who are serious about learning and growing will find Mohawk to be an excellent place to work.

    Cons

    To be a cut above the rest, change must continue to occur and Mohawk does that but sometime the changes can be overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciation starts at the top.

    Typical big company, both good and bad, and always red tape to cut through.

    I have been working at Mohawk Industries full-time

    Pros

    The company is corporately invested in being the best it can be. The products and technology offered are truly cutting edge relative to the rest of the industry. Mohawk prides itself on bringing value and more profitability to the flooring industry, which despite massive objection from competition, does a great job. Also there are many outlets within the company: hard surface, soft surface, commercial, multi-family.

    Cons

    Very much a top-down management style throughout the company. The words constructive criticism have probably never been uttered in Dalton, GA (corporate headquarters). The companies' number one goal is protecting shareholder interest and that is made very clear. As an employee you will be made to feel like a number, and speaking of numbers, if your sales numbers aren't up from the previous year, expect to be looking for another job. Also, as with a lot of big companies, lots of red tape to get through, and that has become customer's perception of Mohawk: "hard to do business with".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower employees and lower level management to make decisions to at least give the perception of Mohawk as a flexible company. Quit making one size fits all templates in Ga and applying it to the rest of the country. Markets are different and so are customers. Technology is great, but having a practical use for it is the of the utmost importance; hire a few young up and comers in corporate and allow them to lead the charge. Along those lines, start looking for a more modern company culture: work hard/play hard, value and reward creative thinking on all levels, and get away from the good ole boy mentality.

    I worked at Mohawk Industries full-time

    Pros

    Ecellent salary, benefits, and teamwork. Everyone at the same level works together, because everybody is helping everybody to gain business. There is lots of infrastructure to support, however, based in GA it is very spread out.

    Cons

    Corporate Structure seems to continue to change, not always for the better.
    Go into any flooring store and ask small business perspective on the company, what you hear is mostly true...
    Due to distance between main infrastructure and other parts of company, things like weather have a massive impact.
    Serious Ebbs and flows during seasonal changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructuring will have people leaving
