far from professionals
process production trainee (fork lift driver) (Former Employee), joplin MoApril 28, 2014
Pros: the pay was nearly 30 dollars an hour
Cons: unprofessional management
I was put through hoop after hoop to get hired on and I started for orientaion and spent 6 hours there and when it was time to take a fork lift test I didnt even get a chance they walked me out the door without any reason. The manager said I quote "yeah its not working" and walked me out the door. Gave an employer 2 weeks notice for that. If Tamko ever – more... is an opportunity again I will not make the same mistake twice.

If you value a stable work enviorment this is not a place for you this place is a joke – less

Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Tuscaloosa, ALFebruary 24, 2014

A typical day at work consisted of preparing for the shift getting the forklift check sheet done. Operate a forklift and run two lines picking up shingles and store them in the proper storage area throughout the shift and get the job done. My supervisor was very helpful and friendly. the most enjoyable part of the job after learning my job duties and – more... responsibilities. – less

Good place to work they really care about people.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Lamar, MOAugust 27, 2013
Pros: good pay, good people and good cookouts
Cons: short breaks, hot temps
A day at tamko starts by checking the specs on all your product if specs are not in the normal range we can't sell it. Check temps on the extruder make sure there are no leaks anywhere. I learned how compresion molding machines work inside and out. I think our management needed to learn how to manage the slow and fast days use overtime sparingly. The – more... co-workers were very knowledgeable when asked question about the machines. I think the hardest part of working at Tamko was cleaning out a barrel (extruder) because it was 300 plus degrees. Best part at Tamko was the bonus points we got for doing safety and observation we got points we could use for catalog purchases. – less
