They will give you a regularly scheduled paycheck and will treat you great during the hiring process. A key benefactor here is that if you know what your worth, they will pay it to you. Just be sure to get it up front and in writing. Because once your hired on you become "owned property"
Raises and reviews are based on hours worked, not effort. The one way around that is to kiss up. Corrigan Tx is ran by a team of evil plywood demons that will work you to the brink of death and then hold you "accountable" for your exhaustion. Safety is an afterthought, even after having senior team members die in a terrible accident. Even after the accident it was all about making plywood and playing catch up. What's even worse than that is the fact that no one in Atlanta will do anything about it. They have lost a lot of great talent lately, and still no change. Senior people have gone years with little to no "bonus" and have not seen a single cent in the form of a raise. GP may be a good company, but avoid the "Building Products" division at all costs!! The have people in roles that are supposed to care and improve things, such as Continuous Improvement, but it is a joke. Nobody will listen to an idea or acknowledge an issue unless your high level. A Supervisor that was a previous CI guy left for that very reason. They have a Training Coordinator, but does no training. They send you to training that Corp. puts on and then will tell you "we don't do it like that" afterwards. . Great leaders leave as soon as their contract is up. Even those with strong military backgrounds leave in disgust. The HR Dept. Well, they are the gate keepers that allows it all to happen and protects the evil team that is in place.
