Very demanding and and hard place to work.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Thomson GeorgiaOctober 22, 2013
Pros: the hours of operation.
Cons: locked inside for the entire shift.
Work was very hard and demanding. Felt like I was in prison once you were inside you could not go back outside or see the outside until it was time to go home, no windows just lock inside this large warehouse for 121/2 hours was stressful to me. The manager I had did not operate the shift very professional to me. The hardest part was to stay loyal to – more... the company for two years. Met new people and some friends which helped made the two years I was there tolerable. – less

I started working on the line, and I advanced fairly quick. The biggest factor about this job is the integrity here is very high, and this company places the employee first.

Great Company, one manager can change a whole plant
Clerk (Former Employee), Chatsworth, GASeptember 6, 2013
Pros: you can move up. they have great values.
Cons: they hire supervisors to supervise a job they have never done
I worked hard at shaw. I started off creeling and worked my way up to office. I went to a different plant and there was a supervisor that hated women, That is no exaggeration. I had the highest production and great attendance, not to mention no quality problems. This woman would try to write me up for having a empty cone on my machine. I told the HR – more... manager about the issues. She never handled the situation and I was harassed until forced to quit. I mean HARASSED. The company as a whole is a great place to work. You can definitely move up and have a future if you show initiative. – less
