    I have been working at Mohawk Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits some what OK, could be a whole lot better though. Got some good people in management that aren't liars and wanting to go threw employees personal belongings. Even some shift leads that really work instead of causing drama.

    Cons

    There is no communication between management or departments.Management really sucks, and tell you only what they think you should hear just so will get off their back. The cameras they have it reminds me of a prison or a adult daycare. They should get off their butt and out from behind the desk reading email the send to each other and the other person being in the next room. Suck laziness. They should have the cameras watching them. Then just maybe they would do their jobs better. Supervisor or shift leads telling lies on employees and other supervisor or shift leads sneaking and going threw your personal belongings and caught on camera and HR does nothing. You know that's a hellaish lawsuit. I had a business at one time, and treated my employees well. I got better and quality work out of them. And then you got some employees at Mohawk who just could care less about their jobs because of management.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to quit try to rule people and treat them right and follow the company rules like everyone else does. And quit lieing to people and telling them what the employees what they think they should or want to hear just to pacify them. And quit going threw employees belongings without permission. Come on tighten up. You put your pants on one leg at a time just like us. Just because y'all are management y'all ain't no better than us. Think of the word Mangament. It mean leadership and values.

    Pros

    Great coworkers to work with.

    Cons

    Terrible benefits. Insurance is a money pit that never pays out. 401k matching is the lowest I have ever seen. Women are not treated equally among their male counterparts. Out of three hundred employees only a small handful of women are promotes. Next to none are promoted beyond a class 5 pay grade.

    Advice to Management

    Time to clean house in management. The county in which the plant sits has had a declining reputation for the past 20+ years to the point locals do not want to work there unless there are no other options available at the time.

    I worked at Mohawk Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    people care about and take pride in their jobs, work hard and generally speaking are easy to get along with. Working in the Dalton area there is a lot of overlap between competitors but having worked for both I prefer Mohawk.

    Cons

    Management takes advantage of staff members hard work, often expecting extra work beyond normal hours, weekends and even vacations.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees do the work, don't micro-manage, don't over-work them!

    I worked at Mohawk Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and decent benefits. The stock seems to always rise. Under performers are constantly weeded out so everyone is on their toes.

    Cons

    It's a pressure cooker. Sometimes colleagues can be found crying at their desks or gulping down antacids to deal with stress.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Management seems committed to putting profits first, and if that's the game, then they do play it well.
