Work at Owens Corning Ladysmith and agree. I work production, and am getting the highest pay with no room for advancement. Searching for a new job where I can advance with a company, and not sit stagnant.

Pros: good poeple to work with, good communication
Cons: business is not stable.
Great culture! The people are easy to work with and the culture is accepting of changes. Business is very "up and down" and affected by housing starts. The job is a good one and works closly with the operations manager and continuous improvement department.

Mat Attendant (Current Employee), Savannah, Georgia – September 16, 2012
I work rotating shifts sometimes 12 or 8 hours. I work in the felt room cutting fiberglass rolls for production. I cut off excess and put it in the bailer. I enter data from roll counts into our database. When other people are on breaks I work in different work areas. The hardest part of the job is the lack of work. The most enjoyable part is satisfaction – more... that I am a hard worker and attentive to my job and work area. I have 15 co-workers on my shift and one shift supervisor. – less

the people were helpful and understanding usually except for one supervisor. the coworkers made it feel like family usually, offering suggestions and tips or conversation daily, I was a temp for a year then hired full time on a new line they put in. I got no breaks once they started the 12,hr rotating 3-4 weekly schedule. I was often by myself, having – more... to inspect my area line equipment, and up and down from forklift to get my positions materials. and nobody cared even though I hadn't had forklift training but always said I couldn't do but made me when i didn't have a driver. – less
