    Pros

    Tons of freedom as a TM. Mgmt gives you the power and decision making ability. Mhk provides superior products, excellent customer service, and the best logistics system in the industry to deliver the goods to your customers. They train you then they let you go. If you are the type of person that works hard all the time you can have a very financially rewarding career here. Most of the other reviews say the same thing - the compensation plan is great as long as you are willing to work hard all the time. A TM at Mohawk is similar to owning a franchise - the TM is the face of the company in his/her territory. No limits on commissions!

    Cons

    Same as any commission job - you can overwork yourself. Vacations are not looked at favorably by mgmt. Takes longer to earn vacation time than many other large companies and they aren't even guaranteed paid vacations it's commission pay so if you take a vacation and don't sell anything you're out. Sometimes the road gets lonely, etc etc.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Keep reinvesting in the plants and the people. The view from the top of the industry is great I'd like to see us stay there.

    Pros

    Great management from CEO to Presidents to all levels of associates. The President, Brian Carson, and the CEO, Jeff, are very open and actively seek input from employees at all levels. They make an effort to tell people why they are doing what they are doing in a very timely manner. They understand that employees are doing the work to make the company even more successful. Anyone can have an impact if they choose to do so. People with ambition and who want development need to raise their hands if they want to move ahead, as it should be. The company does very well at compensating and rewarding people for a job well done. Not a ton of kudos, but the ability to have an impact is tremendous and people who work there control their own destiny. Those who don't move ahead either don't want to or don't do the things necessary to be recognized as a contender for bigger roles.

    Cons

    Work life balance could be better if vacation policies were improved. The ability to attract and retain great people may be impacted by this as the job market continues to tighten.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and continue to grow the business and make it even more profitable so that we can continue to provide jobs and opportunities for new and existing talent. You might give more frequent kudos, attaboys, etc. to remind people you appreciate them.

    Pros

    Really big company so good benefits and extra discounts. Great discount on company products if you are buying flooring.

    Cons

    No accountability of senior management. They do whatever they want and are not held accountable. They only care about themselves and not their employees, even thought they pretend they care.

    Advice to Management

    Get out on the floor with your employees and find out the truth, don't just say hi and think you are spending quality time on the floor. Your managers only tell you what you want to hear.
