    Former Intern - IT Co-Op in Kennesaw, GA

    I worked at Shaw Industries as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were awesome. I wouldn't expect learning as much as I did with the IS team I was on, but I did. The pay isn't too bad either.

    Cons

    The headquarters are in Dalton. There's nothing to do there. Chattanooga is the closest city to it where there's more things to do.

    Former Intern - Engineering Co-Op in Cartersville, GA

    I worked at Shaw Industries as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Plant 15 in Cartesville is very young and upbeat. I really enjoyed all of the people and my boss and upper management were great. If you can prove yourself then they will give you a lot of opportunities with cool projects.

    Cons

    If you get stuck co-oping anywhere except Plant 15 (i.e. Dalton plants) then most of the work they give you is remedial, lots of filing and stuff. The plant I worked in was a very hands on loud and dirty job. I didn't mind but you might.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure all managers that have a co-op are giving the co-op at least one relevant project per term.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Cartersville, GA

    I worked at Shaw Industries full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pros of working here is one week of vacation first year, two weeks the second - fourth year and then 3 weeks 5th year. Pay is unbeatable for entry level around the area.

    Cons

    Management pretends to care about what you need, but they do nothing to help you. They have no idea how to do any job, so don't expect to get anything out of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show your employees you care, and not by cooking popcorn and handing out a couple drinks...

    Current Employee - SCG Contract Specialist in Cartersville, GA

    I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Busy, steady, get breaks(long enough to only go to the toilet). HR dept (very, very rude, non-confidential, promote their friends, makeup phony cases to prevent promotions). Promote(people who are trashy, wear clothes with breasts revealing & TMs complain don't handle their work).

    Cons

    Pay is lousy, lousy, lousy. Not a living wage. Can't afford medical copays. No advancement unless friends with management. Workload extensive for time to complete; thus errors and then you're dinged. . Most mgrs unbelievably dumb, few with college degrees; no promoting those with degrees then. Solicit PI/PA requests then do not implement or steal your ideas & give you no credit. 2 10 min. breaks a day - leaves you time to go to the toilet and that's it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire mgrs with a brain instead of those who think talking in circles is intelligent. Too many layers of management. Hire people who have a sense of urgency - most product doesn't get out the door because the work ethic is too Southern - too SLOW.

    Pros

    Paid weekly, decent benefits, flexible with workers who go to college

    Cons

    repetitive job tasks. Very robotic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop asking as if your job is tough. What's tough is taking 200 calls a day from people who are rude.

    Pros

    They pay well and promote from within and run a taught ship so that good hardworking employees have jobs. If you are lazy - this is not the place to work. If you work hard - go for it!

    Cons

    Very traditional set-up. A better family/life work balance is needed. Something to discuss before you are hired there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to identify a family life work balance. It can be better.
