Great! Place to work if you don't mind physical work like I do. Love my co-workers and shift supervisor. Benefits and pay were wonderful. I would had only changed the swing shifts because that can be hard on families.
Maintenance Team Leader (Former Employee) – Amarillo, TX – December 28, 2015
Great initiative to stay current with the modern manufacturing method involving lean principles. Affinity groups show a concern for diversity. Excellent incentive programs for both salary and hourly workforce.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Ladysmith, WI – October 12, 2015
Typical day was up and down depending on the day, I personally learned a lot during my time with the company. The management wasn't the greatest, and lacked complete knowledge of what was going on the shop floor. Hardest part of the job was the long hours, especially in the summer heat with horrible ventilation, but the best part of the job was the work was easy and the co-workers made the day better and the time go faster.
Material Properties Analyst (Former Employee) – Granville, OH 43023 – July 22, 2016
Tasks were never overbearing, but ongoing and challenging in their own way. Projects were interesting and very informative. Many different areas in one building made for interesting days, meeting new people and understanding new aspects of every department.
Safety Specialist (Current Employee) – Summit, IL – June 28, 2016
Most of my time was spent on the shop floor interacting and solving problems with production employees. I've built wonderful relations with them. The most difficult part of the job was working in the elements.
Warehouse/ CCO (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – January 18, 2016
Days consisted of load to be filled. Work was assigned by time and due date in which crew handled. In the beginning ( 1984 ) loading was done by hand, now it all done by clamps. Most crew members were there a substantial amount of time, so we all worked together.
Warehouse Specialist (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – June 24, 2016
It is a hard place to work at but in the end it is well worth the effort. You meet some interesting people for around the united states and it is always interesting to see where things are being shipped to.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Springfield, TN – February 16, 2016
Owens Corning in Springfield TN is a horrible place to work. The insulation is everywhere. Management has their favorites for a fact if you fuss enough you do not have to work on the presses. Pay isnt enough for what you have to do. I wouldnt recomment it.
Customer Customer Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Toledo, OH – November 3, 2013
I have enjoyed working at Owens Corning, but unfortunately I work there through a Temporary Agency. I am full-time but there are no benefits. There is opportunity for advancement, but the chance for direct hire is my goal.
A typical work day is not typical. Each day is different depending on the customers that call in. Some days are very challenging with many stressful situations to deal with and other days are less challenging with less stressful situations to deal with.
I have learned about insulation, foam, roofing and logistics.
My management team and co-workers are lots of fun and very supportive.
The hardest part of the job is maintaining a positive attitude while dealing with angry customers. I count this as being one of my strongest attibutes.
The most enjoyable part of my job is when I can change a very negative situation into a positive one and make the customer happy and convince them, that this is just a temporary situation and restore their faith in the company.
SharePoint Developer\.Net Application Support (Current Employee) – Toledo, OH – January 8, 2016
The biggest problem facing learning and development programs in business is the limited transfer of training into the workplace after the formal components are completed. This problem is enormous, ignored and misunderstood
Front end relief (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – December 6, 2015
I worked there for over 20 years. A lot of lying, a lot of back stabbing, finger pointing. Broken promises made to new employees by management. The company is not loyal to its workers. The new plant manager seems to be there to clean house by getting ride of older employees and hiring on a newer set for less money. The company I think is a good company, but the people at the roofing plant are not.
Insulation Processor (Former Employee) – Eloy, AZ – February 26, 2016
The day at this job was loud and busy-busy and really long at times. What I learned through the experience was working on the production line folding insulation and using the package processor machine. My co-workers were anti-social at times, but that job required a lot of attention towards the duties we were given. The hardest part of the job was only the irritation of the fiberglass. The most enjoyable thing about it was it was rotating shifts. It made the job easier to adjust flexible shifts.
