I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time (More than 5 years)
They pay well and promote from within and run a taught ship so that good hardworking employees have jobs. If you are lazy - this is not the place to work. If you work hard - go for it!
Very traditional set-up. A better family/life work balance is needed. Something to discuss before you are hired there.
Advice to Management
Try to identify a family life work balance. It can be better.
I worked at Shaw Industries full-time (More than 3 years)
Great benefits and reasonable pay. great opportunities for training and also after work education was available. Great discounts were also offered on products.
Sometimes info was not disseminated down to plants.
Shaw is a very stable company with a history of being innovative and cutting-edge. The resources available to both employees and departments are quite numerous. Management training is ongoing and in most cases, the company's core values are emphasized and maintained. Most employees at the company seem to enjoy what they do and work well with other individuals and departments. With regards to operations, there is a high level of autonomy to run the operation as the manager sees fit. With that comes a high level of responsibility. The benefit package is fair - not the best but better than many.
Shaw is a very large corporation, and as with any large organization, internal politics can get in the way of sound management. In my opinion, this takes place most often in the middle management levels as many of these managers are climbing the ladder as quickly as they can, and politicking can be an effective way to speed the climb. From an operations perspective, there is a lot of responsibility to run the operation and this responsibility can carry with it considerable stress from time to time. In many cases, the rate of pay may not seem proportional to the amount of responsibility and stress a job places on the individual.
Advice to Management
Continue to be an innovator in the industry. Evaluate salaries regularly paying particular attention to regional cost of living differences among different areas of the country.
