Pros

Pay, in my opinion, is great...benefits are a plus....the hours are getting better, (one year of 12 hour shifts doesn't leave much time for an outside life.)

Cons

With the downturn in the economy 12 hour shifts became a must and that does not leave much time for an outside life, rotating shifts are just hard on a body, what used to feel like family now just feels like a job, a lot of pressure is being put on the newest employees to do what in my opinion is the most important job....the inspection of finished product before it is shipped to the customer. This is where a newly hired employee starts and is the lowest paying job in the plant in which I work.

Advice to Management

It used to feel like management actually cared....not so much any more.

    Pros

    AWI has a long history and many employees who have stayed with the company for quite some time. There is a fair amount of pride in the company and can be felt especially at the corporate capus.

    Cons

    You need to be connected to have the opportunity to advance or be considered for special assignments. There is a sense of "we already know what's best" from management.

    Advice to Management

    Branch out and utilize the human capital that is around you. Competition keeps chipping away at each business segment, yet there is still the belief that some aspects of the business are beyond reproach.
