    I worked at National Gypsum full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good. About $20.00 per hour. for everyone.

    Cons

    Bad work schedule,(rotates backwards), Management constantly preaches safety, but don't care, until someone is killed. (Note: We had someone killed in 2011 because, he wasn't allowed an extra lock to lockout two power stations) and promotions are solely based on who management likes, not on performance. Work conditions are extremely hot in the summer and extremely cold in the winter. Favortism is rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep paying well, Since the HQ surveys don't work, and only lead to early discharge. Listen to the surveys and hear all the employees to make things better and things would be much better.

    Pros

    Very good benefits and they care for their employees. Even as other drywall producers were going through lay-offs the past few years, National Gypsum tried their best to keep as many employed as possible. Matching funds for the 401k when economic conditions allow, wide selection of health care plans. A whole lot of overtime pay when the economy is booming.

    Cons

    For production-related positions, the work environment can be pretty rough. Hot in the summer, Noisy all the time. Just the nature of the job. A whole lot of overtime hours when the economy is booming.

    My experience was unsatisfying, because people that I trained were getting promoted, and I wasn't.

    I have been working at National Gypsum

    Pros

    The pay, and benefits package was excellent.

    Cons

    It was very dusty and dirty, so working conditions were not ideal. It was colder inside than outside during winter, and the same in the summer with temps routinely over 100F. Worked 7 days a week, very hard to get time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best workers, were the ones that they let go. As a result production and quality suffered. They should get to know who really makes they're plants go, it is the workers not management. The few competent managers that they did have, they would move to other plants. Once again causing they're own production and quality to suffer. Put simply, "If it's not broke, don't fix it"
