Beware of the team you are joining
Consultant/Contractor (Current Employee) –  Parsippany, NJNovember 6, 2017
Was interviewed for a position, but while i started working, it is only me who is working. Others sat back and started to irritate, torcher and bossed me around. Before entering know all the people in the team not only manager.

Terrible place to work
Plant Production Planner (Former Employee) –  Mobile, ALSeptember 29, 2017
facility is old and run down, roof leaks causing damage to material managers are bad, definitely not a place you'd want to work. Pay is decent, you do get benefits.

General maintenance of asphalt shingle mill
maintenance mechanic (Former Employee) –  Savannah, GADecember 19, 2016
Routine maintenance and preventative-maintenance on 2 different plants. Regular scheduled routine on asphalt shingle mill. Regular inspection of pumps, motors, conveyors and all associated equipment.Hardest part--heat that's involved with the asphalt. Good folks to work with.
Pros
Company at corporate level-seems to really care for employees.
Cons
Laid-off regular employees, only to keep contractors doing same work. Myself included.

Good pay, but managers have no back bone.
Shift Technician/TPO (Former Employee) –  Mount Vernon, INNovember 2, 2016
Most of the hourly workers are great people, the pay is excellent and a strong company. After 11 years of employment was terminated for a false accusation, but the problem employees keep there job. If your a member of the good ole boys club you get a day job, otherwise your out of luck. Promote people that can't do the job. Never understood management's philosophy.
Pros
Some good coworkers, great pay and benefits
Cons
Everything else!!!

Awful management
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Mt. Vernon, INOctober 28, 2016
Mt. Vernon Indiana plant is poorly managed. Ignorant HR staff. Lot of he said/ she said going on. They will fire people who show up every single day and do well in their jobs. But keep the ones they cant count on.They pit employees against each other and encourage disputes. Corporate needs to come in and clean house!
Pros

Cons
Too many to list

good pay
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLAugust 4, 2016
Don't give employees enough family time off, got to constantly work long hours. You are basically told that it's mandatory for you to be there everyday and to call off you must call 2-3 hours ahead of your starting time, imagine starting at 6am and all of a sudden you're ready to leave for work at 5am and find out your daughter is very ill and you got to take her to the hospital all of a sudden, you do the math
Pros
good pay
Cons
they treat you as if your job is your life, long days and not enough time for family, of course unless you single.

Coworkers were great, Mgt and HR, not so much
Marketing Analyst (Current Employee) –  Parsippany, NJJuly 27, 2016
The best part of this job was the great coworkers. The building is also lovely, pay is good, and I love the on-site gym.

Okay, now, for the bad part: HR is the PITS! You can apply for a different position, the hiring manager wants you and fights for you - and you still don't get it because "HR said so". What's the point of interviewing if the final decision is already pre-ordained by HR?

Management isn't much better. They let positions go unfilled, even when they are critical, to increase profits and their own bonusses. You won't get much recognition or thanks for a job well done. At the end of the day, they consider you to be expendable.
Pros
Nice building, great coworkers, gym on-site! Decent pay
Cons
HR is the pits. Management isn't much better.
