Accounting (Former Employee), Manassas, Va – October 14, 2013
This company/branch had to be the most unorganized, fragmented company I have ever worked for. No one knew what tasks they were assigned and there was no direction from management. The sales guys in the office bored on offensive with the language and inappropriate comments. Run away from this company!
Sales Manager/Major Accounts (Current Employee), Des Moines, IA – August 24, 2015
Masco is a very ethical company to work for. They pride themselves in being fair. I have worked for 2 different Masco companies and liked each for different reasons. The first allowed me to work on a team and the second to work on my own. I experienced much success in both.
Help w/ day to day activities while mainly focusing on my customers and improving sales growth
Builder Sales Representative-Colorado (Current Employee), Colorado – August 1, 2015
Pros: good team environment
Cons: lots of changes
fast paced w/ great people working with you. Large company overall but the local group is small and works as a team. I mainly focused on day to day sales and building a strong relationship w/ my customer base while also expanding my customer base as required.
manager (Current Employee), florida – July 7, 2015
Pros: discount on installation and products
Cons: corporate out of touch, constant change and revert to previous ways
Masco Contractor Services- the employees who actually install the products and do all of the actual work of the organization are unappreciated.
Employees have to work 60+ hours to earn decent money – more... with productivity pay programs.
Company had to schedule employee appreciation day otherwise managers would not take the time to say thanks.
New hires benefits are poor- no training department, no handbook, benefits expensive, vacation limited.
Executives change direction by competitors ideas instead of the other way around. Everyone afraid of losing their job as so many people have been laid off due to constant restructuring.
New managers have to wait 2 years to receive 2 weeks of vacation. Corporate thinks that benefits are amazing and corporate is so out of tough with the reality of operations. They pop out in the field for photo ops but do not want to spend any money to make changes that field really wants and will impact the crazy high turnover. – less
Insulation Instalation Specialist (Former Employee), Indio, CA – July 1, 2015
Pros: Paid for Driving time. Lots of overtime.
Cons: Short lunch and breaks. Very physically demanding. Very hard learning curve
Day starts at 6:30 am. Get your schedule of which houses you have to insulate then load up in the truck that was assigned to you. Drive to the location on your paper work and proceed to check if area – more... is available to be worked on. Unload all the insulation and check the houses/building to determine how much insulation you will need. Work until 9-10:30 am because you are required to take a 30 minute lunch before 11:00 am and also a 15 minute break before that. Keep working until 2:30 pm which is the official end of the day, unless you are close to finishing insulating you have to keep working until it is done. Lots of overtime even days when you work until 5:30 pm. You do get paid for drive time. At the end of the day you calculate how much insulation you have used and write down your footage separate from anyone else footage. Return to the warehouse and turn in your paper work, tell the manager about any issues the house/building had and if someone will need to go with different material to correct it. – less

The company is good to the people, the factory is of newer construction and plenty of training. It bis kept pretty clean considering it is a woodworking company with a lot of sawdust. Co-workers are eager to help people and easy to get along with.

Potentially a great place to work because of a few managers!
Plant Engineer (Former Employee), Middlefield, OH – May 17, 2015
Pros: immediate management, factory workers, open door policy, flexible schedule, benefits
Cons: dependent on disposable income, high turnover rate, executive management (around 2012), some one-dimensional thinking
I respected the immediate management and held them in high esteem as they always backed me and trusted me on projects that were critical to the functioning of the plant. The mistakes were not highlighted – more... to belittle a person but rather to discuss and make improvements so that they were not repeated. Things were much better before the merger and the financial downturn, but I am sure that the management is beginning to get a handle on the situation. It would have been even better if the management were to able to keep their most loyal and hard working employees from quitting after the merger.
All in all, I learned a lot during my time at Masco and made some good friends and I wish the company and its employees continued success in the market place. – less

Pros: great team environment

Masco was a great place to work, they believed in team-building and had a family feel. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with and the honesty among my co-workers and peers on my performance
