Pros: great pay
Cons: unstable work environment
I really enjoyed my job. I work well under pressure, but I was unhappy with the job's security of employment. For a company like Shaw Industries, I expected a more stable work environment. During the time I was emplyed there, I was laid off, changed from 8 hour shifts to 12, and then went from a normal work wk (mon-fri) to A, B, C, and D shift. It was third shift, so I got a .20 shift premium. I can handle the change and take it as it comes... but right before the entire plant was laid off indefinately, there was talk of changing the location from Adairsville to Eton. I was extremely disappointed with this company. I was looking at this job as a permanent, stable company that I could sink my teeth into and begin a career. I was in it for the long haul, too bad they weren't.
