    Pros

    Great culture, Care for Employees, Great management that keeps the company growing, equal opportunity employer

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems everyone's opinions and suggestions are not valued. Some of the higher management seem to get their way even if its not profitable to the company which also affects the employees morale watching it. Could get better with openness.

    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

    The people in this company really care about their employees. The value of the company is not just writing on the walls but actually how they operate.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is challenging to interview for a position as a trainee and compete against people with industry experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They invest a lot into this program financially but sometimes the belief in the program from upper management is in question.

    I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Well known in the floor covering industry as well as being a part of Berkshire Hathaway. Freedom and independence for self motivated go getters in the sales field.

    Cons

    Poor management with no sense of direction. To many chiefs with their own agenda trying to direct the sales force. A lot of flip flopping taking place. Management has not given the sales force a raise in the last 6 years, which is fine if you are selling and growing your business. The only down side to growing your business is having your territory cut and given to reps who are struggling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and listen to what is taken place in the sales field. You are all about surveys, how about finding out what your salesforce really thinks.

    Pay people what they are worth and respect their personal life

    I worked at Shaw Industries full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay for this job is about as good as you can get in my area and we were payed weekly and on time.

    Cons

    Management were too focused on themselves and would not commit to something if they thought that it would be incorrect. Focus on safety was over the line to the point that people were afraid to do their job. Management was indecisive and I often had to re-do work that was done like they wanted. Shaw was supposed to be paperless yet I signed at least 10 sheets of paper a day that were usually lost or duplicated within a week. They focused on on job safety by installing gates and fences that only hourly employees had to use while managers were allowed to enter through unguarded entrances and the gates and fences installed did not alloy employees to leave easily if there was an emergency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being too strict on employees and too focused on the bottom line hurts moral and makes employees feel bad and be negative about their job.
