Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Malvern, PASeptember 16, 2016
Simply the worst management team for such a large company. The company succeeds because of the quality of products but as many customers have said "If you weren't the 800 pound gorilla in terms of product your company would fail."

While the company has just recently started an SAP integration it is still run by individual businesses in a silo environment. This makes the concept of best practices impossible due to the makeup of the lines of business. If Vinyl has a good idea and implements roofing may not want to spend the cash and so on. This is prevalent with the 5 differing LOB's so you can imagine how difficult it is to function as a single company let alone 5 separate entities.

Wrapper Agent (Former Employee) –  Peachtree City, GASeptember 10, 2016
A typical day was to create product that was safe to use for homes and businesses. I learned how shingles were made and how they were wrapped and shipped. Management and co-workers were quick to make sure that all was ok with you at the beginning and the end of the shift. Remembering to eat a lot of potassium prior to your shift was the hardest part.
Pros
Everything
Cons
Very Dangerous

The management in this facility is non existent. The safety manager was never seen on site on most days and never on the production floor. Communication and resolution of any issue does not happen

Primary Saw (Former Employee) –  Meridian, IDJune 8, 2016
The job work was okay, but as you try to better your opportunity in the job levels, you had a lot of jealousy. I ran one of the biggest machine in the plant and was very qualified for it, but the job had slowed down, which cause many employer's to look else where.

Temporary Employee (Former Employee) –  McPherson, KSApril 21, 2016
It was alright. The hours weren't the best for a social life. Coworkers were friendly and supervisors were nice. It definitely requires a strong back.

Operations Administrator (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAMarch 15, 2016
These are great people. The company does demand a lot of you, but has great benefits and pay.
Management is very proactive about correcting procedural issues.
Co-workers are positive and supportive.
Hardest part - the position did not fit me and there wasn't anywhere else in the organization I could go.
Most enjoyable part was the co-workers. Truly great people. Some of them were from other countries and it was interesting to learn about them and their backgrounds.
Pros
free lunches and great bennies.
Cons
They will truly test the limits of your endurance.
