Machine Operator (Former Employee), Calhoun, GA – September 6, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits, paid breaks.
A typical day at work was very routine. We worked at a steady and safe pace to get the job done and keep our customers happy. I learned a lot at Mohawk and I did things I never thought I would. I had a fear of heights and lifts tipping over. I learned how to safely and efficiently get over those fears, and be the best at my job. The management team – more... is amazing. They truly care for their employees. The hardest part of the job to me was leaving. The most enjoyable part of the job was how we were all a big family, we all worked together and achieved success daily. – less
Twister Operator (Current Employee), Bennettsville, SC – August 28, 2014
Pros: i only work 15 days out the month.
Cons: working 12 hours can be exausting.
Well if you work in the BCF dept. you going to work. The plant manager and the head men are pretty down to earth. Management are big on safety. I've learned that the smallest mistakes can cost the company billions to fix, so to double check and triple check everything. The hardest part of the job is when there a lot of people out.The most enjoyable – more... is doing your best and looking down at your frames knowing you gave the next shift a job to match up to. – less
Since the age of 18 I have mostly worked in carpet mills and know my way around a mill. I’m a hard worker and someone that believes in team work and showing up on time every day for work. I’m not there to just make a pay check but to do whatever I can better the company I’m working for
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Tifton, GA – August 7, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: fire hazards
I learned working most of all of the equipment, I enjoyed my co-workers and supervisors, the hardest part of the job was the bad material that caused the machines to clog up which would slow down production.
High Stress, no appreciation, no structure, ethically wrong company
Manager (Former Employee), Calhoun, GA – August 5, 2014
Pros: grey hairs (if wanted), anxiety, high blood pressure and stress
Cons: very poor upper management, no ethics or morality, no advancement
The Logistics department at Mohawk is unorganized and has no structure. Members of Sr. Management and above have no appreciation of it's employees. The turnover rate in the last 2 years has been astounding. Employee ideas are disregarded with no attempt. So many people have been "let go" and their job duties have been assigned to remaining employees – more... with no direction or compensation. An employee can do numerous things right or correct in a day, but one thing not done or a mistake being made, they are basically exploited for it amonst other employees and told they are not right for the job and told their opportunity for advancement is nonexistant. Human Resources is sneaky and can not be trusted when an employee goes to them in confidence when resolution is wanted. Sr. Management and above asks it's employees to do things that are known to be wrong to the employee but they do it anyway, and when the issue is brought to the employees manager, the manager doesn't side with the employee or back his/her decision and disciplines the employee for doing what they were told to do. Ethical and moral values is not something that is practiced at Mohawk. Employees there are not treated fairly and not appreciated for what they do.Mohawk is a far cry from what it once was, it is really a shame and it is sad that a person can't ask the ones that have been there for a long period of time, because those types of "dedicated" employees have been "let go" and told that "this isn't for you" or "time has outgrown you". Loyalty no longer is employed at Mohawk – less
Stockroom Manager (Former Employee), Waynesboro, VA – August 3, 2014
Pros: great benefits

Start at 0700 to 1630 How to order and maintain inventory in supply room Plant manager had an open door policy and very easy to work with Department heads provided great feedback as for as their needs and expectations of the supply room Keeping the min/max levels in check and cycle counts in spec Having parts available to keep all equipment running – more... because of breakdowns or preventative maintenance – less
Electronics Technician (Current Employee), Chadwicks, NY – July 27, 2014
Pros: healthcare benefits
Cons: short breaks, no advancement
It does not matter if you work hard or not, nothing gets noticed. You can work 2 times harder than one person and nothing is said. The person working hard doesn't get complimented and the person working slow does not get asked to work harder.
Systems Analyst II - EUS, Infrastructure (Current Employee), Dallas, TX – July 15, 2014
Pros: on-site gym, great benefits, fun culture and environment
Mohawk is a very professional yet fun atmosphere for growth and knowledge. Although being a very large corporation my experience has been that it is very family oriented or maybe thats the relationships I've built with colleagues. I've progressed over the years from a desktop support technician to a systems analyst II...Management is very encouraging – more... and for the roles they are in they are always striving for their team to do better, they encourage you to take training and will provide training...All the ones I have worked for or have been under have an open door policy, even the directors. Co-workers/Colleagues are very open and always willing to help if they see you struggling with something or if you have questions, the only dumb question is the one you don't ask...I've always felt very comfortable here whether its talking about something serious or just joking around, everyone knows what's required of them so it makes it a fun environment that you can grow with knowledge and experience. As stated before, I don't think there is a hard part of the job because of the environment of course there are times when systems go down and you have to work a little extra but being in a team that works together and accomplishes one goal makes most jobs easier, and with any corporation you'll have ups and downs with systems. I think everything I stated above describes how fun and enjoyable a job can be, but I also believe if you do not enjoy what you are doing how can you be happy? I enjoy most the type of work I do, the people I work with and the management everyone is easy to get along with and we all have one goal in common and that's to make the overall customer experience whether they be internal or external a smooth and flawless experience. – less
