Fantastic job to work at if you're looking for a career!
Fabrication (Current Employee) –  Amarillo, TXJuly 14, 2017
Job was good but you must be willing to work hard for your position on the team. Benefits are outstanding, along with the pay. Only work 3 days and you're off 3 days, you cant beat that!

Very demanding environment
Operations/Materials Manager (Former Employee) –  Wichita Falls, TXJune 2, 2017
The jobs at Owens Corning are very demanding and time was a precious commodity. The people were not well trained and turn over was high when I first was brought on board but I can honestly say that when I moved on the environment was 180 degrees different. It had become a very good place to work and the people had changed dramatically. Good place to work

Good place to learn and grow if you are good
Various Management Positions (Former Employee) –  Toledo, OHMay 24, 2017
I if you are self-motivated, can handle change and stress, multiple roles and long days, Owens Corning is a great place to grow.

HR and management demand growth and self-development from all employees and provide the resources and support.

Those who take advantage will grow portable skills and will not have to worry about being qualified for their next job.

Pay and benefits are very competitive, but hours are sometimes long.
Cons
Stressful, fast paced, typically political at times.

Inventory Analyst (Former Employee) –  American Canyon, CAMay 24, 2017
During the housing boom era this was a great company to work for. The pay was amazing and the opportunity for advancement where everywhere. However the housing market is not as it was back in 2004 so i cant say how the company is at this time.

Not bad to start at
Extruder Operator (Current Employee) –  Rockford, ILMay 24, 2017
12 hour shifts in production hard to balance children

8-8 shifts, but you only get every other weekend off

2 on 2off 3 on 2 off 2 on 3 off and it repeats

Insurance is a joke

Quarterly bonus a plus, but they used to be a lot more

Bosses change too much for my liking
Pros
quarterly bonuses and payed breaks
Cons
12 hour shift 8-8

Overall a good company but not in a desirable city. Company is investing in new talent. Things seem a little behind here as their growth plan hasn't caught up with 21st century
