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


    I have just celebrated my 20th Anniversary with Shaw Industries. In my time with the organization I have found that Shaw values thier people, they invest in our development and provide growth opportunities. It is a large organization but the culture is more like a small family business. It's a great place to work


    Slow to change with limited growth opportunities in current role.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Shaw Industries.


    Very professional but laid back. Be prepared for behavior questions. Starts out with tell me about yourself and other normal interview type questions then takes a transition into behavior. Overall, great interview experience and seems like an awesome company to work for.
