Job security with this company is awesome if you show up and do your job and do what you are told. The job isn't hard and not very demanding. Alot of forklift operation, alot of grabbing loose materials and waiting for machines to finish production run.
Production Machine Operations (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – January 31, 2017
Milliken is a good company to work for. They do have a rotating shift work life, so having a home life can be a challenge @ times. They are undergoing so changes but the managers treat us with respect. The job I am doing has lots of challenges. So if you like a good challenge, this place is perfect for you.
Great company, stand for great things, but have the wrong management, a lot of managers sleeping with Co workers for promotions, some prejudice, and this just the one in Blacksburg. Drugs were found a lot in plant but if your manager know you a good worker they will tell you when they going to drug test you. ALSO THE BIGGEST DRUG DEALERS ARE WITHIN THE PLANT, SELLING CRACK TO PILLS taken by workers while operating heavy machinery.
benefit, secure job
management, and to many family members in the same department
The environment of the Design Center was so relaxing and modern. You could get a lot of work done and still enjoy your surroundings. I really enjoyed working there and the management staff were always eager to listen to your ideas! I miss working in an administrative environment! I have been working for other companies, but would love the opportunity to do this type of work in the future.
Typical day is starting the machine for work, allowing it to heat up and start running. After a few hours machine is cut off due to the temperature it reaches to allow for cool down and cleaning. After cool down and clean up, machine is restarted and process is repeated. The hardest part of this job is being able to withstand the heat in the work area. In the Summer, it is best to keep plenty of water with you. If not, you could easily become dehydrated.
Milliken would probley keep people there working longer if they would look in to cutting some of the machines down meaning placing more weavers on the floor to help the people that is having to run 30 or more machines per shift.
Milliken was a wonderful place to work. We had lots of deadlines and had to learn to prioritize quickly. There was always work to do which made one feel needed. We had good management that not only instructed us of our duties, but they were there for us and backed us up. We had to learn to work as a team which makes the progression of any job smoother. Our team often worked together over lunch just to keep the atmosphere more fun. The hardest part of my job was the last minute Friday afternoon crunch getting out last minute orders, but when we made those deadlines it was probably the best part of the job - just knowing we could do it!
being close to the schools, flexible if you had any appointments, good benefits
Operator/Technician (Current Employee) – LaGrange, GA – June 29, 2014
I work 6 to 7 days a week every week about 10 to 12 hours a day. I am dedicated to my job. I started from the bottom and continually pushed and pushed until I reached my potential goal of being the go to guy of the company. I am currently a technician. I troubleshoot situations and maintain proper machine maintenance for quality and production. I am a go getter, hard worker, management material individual. I feel if you ever stop learning then your job is not required. I am very high driven with a motivation to see the industry I work for succeed.
