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

    Pros

    Good benefits, annual COLAs, plenty of overtime, good vacation pay

    Cons

    Not a lot of room to move up, the job is physically demanding at times, no merit bonuses

    Advice to Management

    If you see someone who is trying their hardest to move their way up in the company, find ways to help them stay within the company. Would have liked to stay with Shaw.
