The environment is hectic. Management has a hard time communicating between each other and the employees. The schedule is never consistant, so it's hard to plan things to do in your spare time. The pay is great and the benefits are as well.
Mechanical Engineer Internship (Former Employee) – Meridian, MS – June 26, 2018
I completed an Internship with CertainTeed and definitely learned a lot about bad culture. I feel like everyone was trying to make the plant successful from the salary side but they had major issues getting appropriate people in a timely manner.
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Semora, NC – June 23, 2018
This was a great place to work. Until the change of management the plant manager dosent know how to operate the plant. If your not in a certain group or crowd your chances of advancing are limited. We had unqualified people performing jobs they where not qualified for but they received the jobs anyway cause they where in the good ol boy group. Working conditions where very hot and fast paced environment.

Inspector/packer level 4 (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – May 4, 2018
It was a very fast paced job,very hot place to work, there was always something to keep you busy whether it was on the floor or the lines there was always something to do. They were a family oriented company.I miss that.
Senior Business Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Valley Forge, PA – April 27, 2018
This was a decent place to work. I was never very busy and they did not seem to have a definitive plan for me beyond taking over for consultants who did the installation. People were friendly and there was no micromanegement. Vacation policy (2 weeks) was poor.
Did not seem to committed to the SAP solution. Vacation policy.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – April 13, 2018
I am thankful and loved my job with certainteed. Had it not been for an emergency with my mother and having to take a few days off to care for her I would still be there, but because of supervisors and management not being on the same page about what time I could take off I lost my job.
Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Jonesburg, MO – March 28, 2018
Even though I was an intern, I felt like my opinion was heard. They care about their employees and everybody was very friendly. It never felt like a chore to come into work. It was a great environment.
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Kent, WA – March 15, 2018
I help ensure the machine operators are trained, safe and efficient. In addition to supervising operators, I spend my days wearing many different hats. I plan production, manage goods movement in the warehouse, perform preventive maintenance, diagnose equipment failure, plan and perform equipment maintenance, buy and manage parts for the facility, and conduct quality checks. Recently, I have been preparing for the installation of the SAP resource planning and data management program. This has involved developing an organization system for parts and a formal preventive maintenance program.
Electrical Controls Repairman (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – March 14, 2018
There are a lot of good people doing the hard work on the production floor. The rotating shift work is pretty hard to get used to and when you made to feel like the manufacturing of insulation is supposed to be the most important thing in your life, giving up time off with your family, called in in the middle of the night, working 12 hours in stead of 8, that gets to be too much for a family man like myself.
