Pros: lots of incentives, such as pride day, free cokes and hot dogs, nachos, etc.
Cons: sometimes you work too much, especially during the summertime.
A typical day at Shaw is very repetitive, a lot of times doing the same things over and over again in the same shift. There are many styles of carpet and different ways to handle each style. There is lots to learn, but the one thing you will know for sure is how to work safely. For the most part management is very fair and understanding. They work hard – more... to keep the employees happy, as much as they can anyway, and are not afraid to spend money to make the equipment operate the best it possibly can. The people that I worked with, and the ones that worked for me are really good. Shaw does a more than sufficient job at training and making people comfortable on their jobs. The hardest part of the job is the high demand, in quality, production, and especially safety. A lot is required of their employees in a short amount of time, and even though you are rushed to do things, they are done safely. The best thing about working at Shaw has been the stability. You never had to worry too much about work shutting down. – less
