Long hours for second shift
Lift Truck Operator (Current Employee) –  Cranbury, NJMay 19, 2017
This place does not support work/life balance, very long hours during peak season. Out time is never certain. One day work 12-13 hours the next work is complete in 7 hours, but you are encouraged to stat for complete 10 hour shift. Benefits are not good, vacation time is not much. "Mandatory" work days and a scheduled day off with a day notice at times. Management is not engaged to the hourly associate at all. Favoritism is huge, especially to the first shift. Positions are awarded to seniority, even if a person is less qualified. No accountability or sense of urgency by employees on busy days, because most employees know that getting overtime is not an issue and they will milk it for as much as they can
Pros
Above industry average pay and overtime if you want ut
Cons
NO work/life balance, poor vacation time, bad benefit plans, management is not engaged etc etc etc

company that pretends
creeler (Former Employee) –  Cartersville, GAMay 14, 2017
Shaw industries is a horrible place to work they have rules that don't make sense, they blame the employees if you get hurt!!! They always want you working on weekends but the big wheels are off. They blow things up to trick you with there pay scale advancement is limited. Some of the managers are worst than the employees as far as drama and gossip.
Pros
Brown nosing can get you far
Cons
Everything mention in the review and no time for family if on the off shifts

Your experience depends on your manager.
IT Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Dalton, GAMay 13, 2017
Your experience at Shaw depends on your manager. If you have a good manager, you will have a great time. If you have a bad manager, be prepared for the worst.

Health insurance is terrible. 401K match is good.

Coworkers are generally good spirited people.

Great work environment, excellent benefits.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Theodore, ALMay 7, 2017
I worked at a distribution center with 4 dispatchers and 8 truck drivers. The environment was fun and the employees were like family. I worked in the front which involved greeting any walk-in customers, answering phone calls from customers and other Shaw locations, assisting with dispatching, communicated with delivery drivers, handled all worker's compensation paperwork. We were given a lot of training and wonderful support.

high turnover rate in management and supervisors, nepotism
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCApril 13, 2017
i was employed there 4 years. after 2 or 3 years they brought in new management. alot of things became unfair, such as nepotism and jobs that would come open they would already have someone training for that job and that person usually gets that job because its based on interview and knowledge of job.
Pros
excellent starting pay
Cons
swing shifts day and night.

Tough Place to work
Warehouseman III (Former Employee) –  Hopewell, VAApril 11, 2017
Construction Job! Work hard! Not enough pay. Politics are always a factor when it comes to who advances. Another typical factory job. Tried to get a friend a job that had graduated in the field I was in. HR lady said his degree wasn't valid. Unbeliveable.
Pros
a lot of overtime
Cons
benefits

Shaw Industries has deep roots and they are changing the culture to be more attractive to up and coming talent. There is opportunity for growth, however, the advancement opportunities may take a long time to achieve.
It is a great company with many perks.
