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

    Pros

    Overtime and benefits are okay.

    Cons

    Very dangerous. They don't care to keep the place clean, which create dust explosions. I dodged one by 17 minutes on the furnace and another inside the plant, by 20 minutes. But don't take my word for it, ask the last press assistant. Oh wait, you can't because he was burned alive in there. Shaking my head.

    Advice to Management

    They're to blind to take advice.

    Pros

    No silos at this company. Mohawk allows and respect creativity.

    Cons

    I have no cons other than I wish I would've never left. I've learned a lot of lessons. Mohawk respects that everyone has a seat at the table.

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

    Pros

    - The pay is good.
    - Life, health, vision,dental, STD, LTD, 401K
    - PLENTY of overtime, if that is what you are looking for...

    Cons

    - Work environment is extremely hot and fast.
    - I have watched the workload triple in the few years I have been there with only a small raise added each year.
    - Upper management won't listen to suggestions.
    - No concrete employee handbook or set of policies to follow.
    - Nepotism, mandatory OT and disorganization are rampant right now due to being short staffed.
    - No holidays off...this includes Christmas.
    - Teamwork is no where to be found. I saw more people work against each other than with each other.
    - The company needs to hire more people and understand why the turnover rate is so high.

    Advice to Management

    Your people make the difference. They are your most important assets. LISTEN TO THEM! Ignoring their needs is the biggest reason they are leaving and looking elsewhere. Even general laborers have a voice and needs that need to be met. They are PEOPLE after all...not numbers and machines.

    You get hours, rarely short work weeks. Employees are great.

    I have been working at Mohawk Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Steady hours. Work all you want. Overtime available.

    Cons

    They don't care for their employees. (At least not at this plant)
    Don't expect a raise.
    It's not a safe place to work... they talk a lot about saftey but don't follow through.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate really needs to step in here before they loose all their employees.

    Reward your employees... or at least acknowledge the job we do instead of always asking for more and giving us less. Practice what you say... don't just talk safety practice it

    Advice to Management

    Management all levels are straight up a-holes! Not happy unless u r miserable... no communication- expect u to know what's going on - change planning without advanced notice during a run... pathetic favoritism
