Excellent growing industry
Regional Design and Contract Assistant (Current Employee), Cartersville, GAJuly 4, 2013
Pros: flexible work environment
Cons: uncertainty of merger transition
While I enjoy this employment opportunity, it is only a temporary assignment. The staff have collectively embraced teaching me as much as possible. In return, it has been my pleasure to assist them in their daily activities, and projects. There is opportunity to grow at Shaw, but it is vague where that will be. My employment is based off a time frame – more... for an office location merger, and the transition. I do not wish to play with the uncertainties of employment opportunities as the changes take place, therefor I am seeking other employment opportunities. – less

Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee), Aiken, SCJune 11, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: short breaks
It's a good place to work. I've learned a lot about carpet. Mangers are friendly. Most of the people are easy to get alone with. The hardest part is being there for twelve hours. The enjoyable part is getting to be part of a company that does well in the industry.

Regional Sales Coordinator (Former Employee), 131 Old Mill Rd Cartersville, GaMay 6, 2013
Pros: opportunity for advancements, structured
Cons: no sick days
Shaw Industries is a great place of employment. It was the first place of employment where I was introduced to the team system. Learning to work as a team was the beginning of building a very strong foundation in my growth development. The people that I had the privilege of working with has forever made an impact on the person that I have become. I – more... have been challenged, pushed, and stretched beyond limits that I never thought possible. I'm forever indebted to them for helping me dig deep and reach higher than the glass ceiling. I've held several positions at Shaw and all were challenging, but the thing that I had struggled with and over came was learning how to put your personal differences a side when working with different personalities and staying focus on the job at hand. If you are looking for structure, fun workplace, excellent benefits, this is the perfect place. – less

Decent employer with great pay
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Cartersville, GAApril 22, 2013
Always very busy, very difficult to have a flexible schedule as a part time employee. Managers are friendly, but aren't very cooperative when you have a problem. The entire place is friendly and welcoming, however if you ever have a problem, you are out of luck with someone caring.

LTO (Former Employee), Dalton, GAApril 5, 2013
Pros: insurance
Cons: lay offs
Over all okay place to work as long as you have workers willing to work together as a team. I learned to cover all parts of being a hyster driver. The most enjoyable part of the job would have been going home. The hardest part of the job would have been trying to get people to work together. Managment was normally pretty good about leaving you be as – more... long as you were doing your job right – less
