Mamagement is incompetent and rude
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Concord, NCJune 24, 2018
Management is incompetent and stays in their offices, completely unaware of what's going on on the floor, while they spend all day creating 15 minute reports.

They seem to be scare to get their hands dirty.

Also, if you are late twice in 90 days you are terminated no matter why, unless the HR Manager conducts unfair labor practices by making easily discoverable exceptions, which would be based on company regulations that everyone else is bound by.

As they have a harder time finding applicants due to the very low local unemployment rate, I would say it is easy to logically deduce they will drop the late 2 times and automatically fired rule. I guess they will have no problem knowing those who were, were victims of an unfair and inconsistent labor practice.

None

It's a difficulty job
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Starr, SCJune 21, 2018
Not everyone can make it, you are on fear of lossing your job constantly for first 3 months. Fiberglass is always in the air and in your clothes. You do get forklift certified and they take good care of the employees that make it past the probation period. The pay is great

Great opportunity to learn and work at a global fortune 500 company.
Senior Franchise Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Toledo, OHJune 6, 2018
I worked remotely from my home and had to be extremely disciplined in order to achieve the desired results by the Division President was expecting. I organized myself with daily and weekly objectives in order to exceed projection budget expectations. I was present at the corporate office for certain meetings or events. My colleagues were always very supportive and helpful working remotely or in the office. The hardest part was staying on budget expectations when the entire country was in an economic downturn. The most enjoyable part was the challenge of my position and responsibility as well as working with my colleagues.
Pros
Owens Corning's powerful brand and resources.
Cons
The challenging market conditions.

Dangerous and cut throat
Temp. Utility Technician (Former Employee) –  Compton, CA 90222May 21, 2018

Pros
Good managment
Cons
Cut throat disrespect from co-workers

Decent place if you are fine with the position you get stuck in.
Fork Lift Operator (Current Employee) –  Joplin, MOApril 30, 2018
Its decent if you are anything else besides a Fork lift operator, zero job advancement is allowed from this role and little to no pay raises are afforded. Management at the Joplin Thermafiber plant is less than satisfactory and the HR department is nonexistent.
Pros
Decent schedule, pretty easy job.
Cons
Bad management and HR, Good ol' boy system.
