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

    Pros

    Very good pay, company has solid leadership and knows what they are doing. TAMKO is very strong financially so I do not have to worry about going into bankruptcy like my last company did. Very professional and they expect everyone to work hard, be honest, and treat everyone with respect. If you have a bad attitude don't apply here, you will not last long. No one here wants to work next to some jerk with an attitude of entitlement or who is lazy....I am so thankful TAMKO gives these types of people the boot. TAMKO rewards hard work and they do care about their employees. I have seen them spend millions of dollars over the years to make the production lines safe for employees. Production hourly jobs are tough in that they are rotating shift work but they do pay on average about $20 - $25 per hour for workers with no college background but who can work hard and do their jobs. Other manufacturing companies are moving these types of high paying jobs to Mexico, but not TAMKO. They invest in more efficient processes and use Six Sigma to drive out waste. I would not work anywhere else but TAMKO in this current economy where jobs and companies change by the minute. Someone wrote in one review that I read that TAMKO is old fashioned....well, if "old fashioned" means great pay for hard work, honesty, integrity and a company that keeps good workers for life, then sign me up for an "old fashioned" employer any time. America needs more companies like TAMKO. The CEO is a good man - we are blessed to have him!!!

    Cons

    Some locations may not be the best and the manufacturing plants can get hot in summer and cold in winter. Benefits could use some updating, but overall are still solid.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the track that you are heading...it works and we like it.
