Senior Manager, Business Application Solutions (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 22, 2018
This is a great company for those who are looking for a place to retire. The people are extremely nice and very social. The employees are loyal and people do an honest days work. Management is promoted from within except under rare circumstances. I like that they are making stride to bring their technology into the 21st century!

Production Manager (Former Employee) –  National City, MIApril 8, 2018
Corporate atmosphere is tough. Going through "culture" change. Individual plants are more individual and more influenced by plant manager, so some are great and others not so much. Most plants are old and in need of real investment and real preventive maintenance.
Pros
Many locations, niche industry
Cons
Not enough staff, both managerial or hourly.

Supply Chain & Logistics Analyst (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 19, 2018
This company is a "good ol' boys club". They operate slow and old school. Anything against the grain is frowned upon. Definitely not a place I considered for a long term gig. They brought me on "temp-to-hire" with the promise of transitioning me after 3 months of good work. 3 months came around, I asked if they were happy with my performance. "Yes, keep up the good work". Never brought me on to full-time, direct hire status. Definitely felt used and abused.
Pros
Decent pay, convenient cafe/shop.
Cons
Management / culture

Quality Lab Technician Assistant and Intern (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMarch 2, 2018
A typical work day is fast-paced with not much down time. Even though there is not much down time, the work load is not overbearing. The employees and management are really laid back and understanding. Great work environment and competitive pay.
Pros
great pay and friendly work environment
Cons
some mandatory overtime

Relaxed conservative culture that's trying to move forward
Lab Technician (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 29, 2018
The company has a relaxed culture with a lot of up-coming job opportunities. Not the most exciting job day to day, but flexible work schedule and travel opportunities is a plus. Mid-sized company that allows for interaction with higher management, and does present a family oriented culture.
Pros
cross training opportunities, relaxed
Cons
slow paced

Construction Design Manager (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJanuary 4, 2018
Great Company and now seeing how most other companies operated, should have stayed. Great people, great training, great leadership. The company is changing to meet new demands in our business which should make things slightly more demanding for the sale people.

Operator/Laborer (Former Employee) –  Westwego, LANovember 29, 2017
National Gypsum is a great place to work at outside of dealing with management. They have great benefits and the pay is very competitive. The work environment is fun as far as you and your fellow employees. The management is very unprofessional in my opinion. They don't have enough confidence in their employees and kind of make a culture of them verses us.

Field Sales/ Customer Service Center Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCOctober 9, 2017
National Gypsum was a great company to work for. They have great training and room for advancement. It is a family oriented company that cares about its employees and the moral in the work environment. I learned a lot as this was my first job out of college. I made lots of friends there and some have retired since. Sometimes the customer service center was high paced due to the supply and demand of materials but there was always help from others and management if you needed it.

Regional Process Engineer (Former Employee) –  Long Beach, CAJuly 6, 2017
As a controls engineer at National Gypsum, I was able to design and implement controls solutions for all the manufacturing plants. The hardest part of the job was also the most enjoyable part of the job. This was learning new technologies and installing them to work properly.
Pros
Ability to learn new technologies
Cons
Travel
