Excellent company with fantastic benifits and outstanding work environment
Designer (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, AL – November 9, 2012
Pros: benifits, and fantastic group of people
The most outstanding company I have ever worked for. I made a mistake that ended my employment and I hope to find similar or better employment (if possible).
Before I made my mistake -I came home every day saying there couldn't be a better employer. Every day when I came home and my wife would ask "How was your day?" I would often answer "You know – more... how it went. It went the same as yesterday and every day before that -perfect."
The one largest factor that made GAF the outstanding place to work that it is -"the people". I have never worked with such a close-knit group of employees in all of my past working history.
It was extremely unfortunate that I lost my job with this company -but "God willing" -I will be back in working community soon. – less
tractor trailer driver (Former Employee), usa – September 15, 2012
Pros: fair money, m-f, steady work schedule
Cons: management, loyalty, values, no work in winter
I worked at gaf for 4 years as a driver delivering product to customers. over the years the staff always changed. in the building material world with costs of overhead and raw material theyll find ways to reduce cost and this will effect the employee in some shape or form. there is absolutely no loyalty. you can go above and beyond and you will lose – more... your job over the smallest of things. way to many "uppers" and not enough people who actually work. theyre is a vice president for about 20 diffrent jobs. vp of this vp of that. why? as far as the logistics side it comes down to the bottom line and who ever is in charge now has drastically changed the work enviroment and destroyed a once very good career. gaf has way to much competetion and theyre prices are way to high to pay for all the wasteful staff they employee. – less

Production Supervisor (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – May 15, 2012
Pros: i made a lot of money due to all the overtime.
Cons: i had little time for anything else.
Working at GAF was a good experience. I started as a quality control lab tech and finished as a production line supervisor. It was challenging in that it was a union plant. Additionally challenging was the fact that it was a 24/7 operation and there was essentially no time off. Management was reasonable, and typically supportive. The hardest part of – more... the job was the non-stop nature of the business andthe constant shift rotation. The most enjoyable was meeting or exceeding the expectations in spite of ocassionally being short-handed. – less
