    Pros

    Mohawk takes pride in the safety of their employees over anything. They always ensure you have the proper PPE for any job you may be doing. Working for Mohawk ind. was a great opportunity and had really good pay. Though they pay you well they do expect you to put your best into every hour you work because without you their would be no production.

    Cons

    Working for a manufacturing plant it takes every single employees job to make sure you can run your job efficiently if you don’t have co-workers that are willing to do their part it makes for a harder night on you because not nonly do you have the task of your job you have to help them catch theirs up so yours can run that’s one of the biggest downfalls.

    Advice to Management

    In my time working for Mohawk I seen a lot of change some good some bad. By no means am I perfect but I tried my best every night I worked. Hey were only human right! One of the biggest problems that should be addressed is keeping up with how much each worker does per hour that already takes place for tufting machine operators. Reason being I have seen many creelers get away with not doing nothing all night long. Like being put on creels that don’t need creeling right away while the next is running out and you have an operator doing both jobs just to keep the machine running (I have done that many times). That also has to do with poor supervisors/ crew leaders. Favoritism is not okay when you don’t treat everyone equally.

    Good pay, good benefits and great upper management

    I worked at Mohawk Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Decent benefits. Decent hours.

    Cons

    Management. Working in a satellite warehouse with management and employees that did not seem to care. No regard for safety. Employees and managers failed to wear seat belts on forklifts. Management did not care about employees. Supervisor/Manager did not back up leads. No growth opportunity. Disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Everyone has a past experience let that help your company grow and improve. Check in on satellite warehouses more often. Put a higher emphasis on safety. Care for your employees. Be adaptable to change.

    I worked at Mohawk Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was good. And I had benefits. The days off.

    Cons

    The long hours. The micro managing of the supervisors or their complete lack of understanding of what was going on the floor and on the line. The work was back breaking. I worked in a test plant so they were always changing the composition of the yarn which made the machines run worse, which made my job harder. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Do better. Understand that your employees are human and they can break.

    Pros

    Safety leader. Good Learning experience. Good people to work with. Highly technological environmental. High paced. Very rapid expanding facility

    Cons

    No Airconditioning on production floor. Every problem or downtime is top priority. People are expected to make production numbers without no or little training. Very little support after business hours. Not always the best communication between different departments and levels of management. Pay is slightly below average.

    Advice to Management

    Staff and train appropriately for a 24/7 facility.
