    Easy job for the pay... flexible schedule... high turn over so you're always meeting new people and the coworkers are great

    Make promises they cannot keep - positions are promised by team leaders to keep you to stay but they do not follow through. The team leaders are gossipy and petty.

    Pros

    Owens Corning hires great talent and it is a pleasure working with so many great people. We have a phenomenal culture with allows us to work hard and have fun too! There are a ton of resources and once you figure out how to use them, you will become the expert in your industry.

    Cons

    Being such a big company, it is hard to find your way around. I don't mean literally, I mean figuring our who your go to people are. Once you do, the sky is the limit

    Advice to Management

    When hiring and developing talent, one needs to make sure that the retention policies are in place. I have seen a number of colleagues move on to other companies, which has slowed down the pace I move at.

    I have been working at Owens Corning full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay. A lot of days off but the trade odd is 12 hour swing shifts.

    Cons

    Physically demanding. Management seems to have no idea what it means to be a good leader. Communication is awful. No incentives to do your job well.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with FOP's about process issues. Understand what realistic performance measure are and what they are not. Example: do not expect 4 minute hang times and 90 oe when the operators are dealing with so many process issues that are out of their hands (guards breaking ends, bushings burning off, main idlers wrapping, the list goes on).
