It's ok place to work. But there is alot of bs as well.

The good is work is steady. The bad is there's no team work. They are always lying to you. No sick days. So if you are sick you have to use your vacation.

Pros

Clock out for lunch

Cons

2 15min breaks. Short term disability sucks

Job stability, excellent pay , good work life balance

I left Shaw due to personal reasons, but I would recommend this place seeing as how they actually pay a livable wage and you only work half the month.

Pros

Paid time off, double time

Cons

Short breaks, hot in summer

Bad just bad

Toxic environmentYou can't leave the building once you clock, not even to get something out of your car, so if you like sunlight or fresh air on breaks you won't be too happy

Pros

Free plastic forks and spoons i guess

Cons

Well you cant leave the building once you clock in

Demanding and confusing at times

Not pleased with employee's moral due to demands and pressure from management. Communication from management was full of seams, incomplete, inconsistent and at times unclear.

Pros

No

Cons

Too many procedure changes and poor communication

Decent

It is overall a good place to work if you like working 6/7 days a week. Most time here has been mandatory overtime on weekends. If there is a holiday on a Monday they will make you work the weekend just so you can have off Monday.

Pros

Overtime

Cons

Mandatory Overtime

Will fire you for anything simple. And will poimt you for anything.

Favoritism. So you'll have a hard time moving up and will fire you for any lil safety thing. Doesn't care what you have to do and will point you. The need you for production. Period.

Pros

Lots of overtime

Cons

Not a lot of room to grow

Pros

Job security

Hope you get on a shift that actually wants to work and complete the job.

Went in through a temp service and I highly don't recommend that you do that. Was told that I would be on first shift but they don't hire for first shift you have to put in years and get different jobs under your belt before they even consider you. Management doesn't care you have p.c that think they have more power than what they do. The Temps gets treated like trash.You can't smoke and you can't leave the building for your breaks. If you like gossip then go to a plant especially this one.

Pros

Free lunch on sundays, good money, 8 hours a day

Cons

Can't leave for your breaks, management doesn't care, its extremely hot in the summer, rude co-worker's

Good off time, shifts could change though.

Shaw is a good company to work for. The pay is great and the job isn’t too stressful. The only real con about this place is the weekly turn over swing shift. If you can beat that it’s a great place to work.

Pros

Time off

Cons

Swing shift

Strong culture and their leadership is exceptional for the flooring industry.

The company continues to work on their culture and the leadership is exceptional for the flooring industry. Their products and processes are likely the very best in the flooring industry. Their customers, both residential and commercial, believe that the company makes excellent products and operate fairly.

Pros

Increasingly strong culture and diversity for the flooring industry.

Cons

No women or diversity in the C-Suite

Shaw hires and fries like it’s nothing

Shaw Floors pays well, but they will lay-off people in a heartbeat. Shaw ruins lives, destroys families, and cares nothing about their employees. You’re just a number to them. Then they have the nerve to post on the highway that they’re “hiring”, and having a job fair. How about calling back some of those dedicated folks you laid off just a few months ago. It’s a sick game they play. Depending on who you’re related to, whose butt you kiss, and what clique you belong to, you might keep your job. This company plays favorites.

Pros

Weekly pay, vacation

Cons

Expensive insurance, stressful, favoritism, petty mangers

Great place to work.

I really enjoyed working at Shaw's. It was a hard job on your wrist. I have heard since I was there they have updated machines and changed a few policies for the better. My trainer was great.

Pros

Set schedule you know when you're going to be off for a year

Overall one of the better places I've worked

I currently enjoy the work I do at shaws. Everyone on the floor are pretty much left alone to do their job. At times some things can be rushed due to customer demands, but that's a given in any shop. If you show your worth you typically are rewarded. The company could improve on their employee relations by including the guys more though. Newer machines and plenty of tooling available. I'd definitely recommend giving shaws a try if you're looking for work.

Pros

Nice machines and lots of tooling

Cons

Unpaid lunch

Good compensation. Difficult to advance

Shaw is good to me financially. They treat employees with respect and care about safety. Workplace politics absolutely exist. Overall shaw provides great compensation and is probably the most reliable employer in NW GA.

Pros

occasional free lunch

Cons

forced over time and weekend work.
