    I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time for more than 19 years

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Free to be myself. Great lee-way in my ability to make decisions on a daily basis. Exudes trust. Career paths are wide and manageable. Tons of resources and people to help you on your way.

    Cons

    Have to work a whole week! Seriously, I can't think of a single con. Shaw has been the best move I ever made career wise.

    Advice to Management

    Keep leading by example

Since we are OMTs, we are allowed to job shadow at different plants and departments and go for classes to...

    Cons

    - you are not guaranteed a full-time position after the program is complete - there are more OMTs than open full-time positions at Shaw that fit our background.

    Advice to Management

    - Don't advertise this program as an opportunity to figure out what you want to do. - Don't have people lecture us about how they switched careers within Shaw and that you can do anything. - Give people better project assignments that will actually be beneficial when applying for full time positions - Guarantee full-time positions for OMTs after the program is complete or don't waste money hiring so many - Don't tell...
