I would not recomend this place to anyone
Hot End Operator (Former Employee) –  Lakeland, FLOctober 9, 2018
I would not recomend this place to anyone to work at. The plant engineer was allowed to run roughshod over the entire establishment. He micromanaged every aspect of the facility and purposely tried to intimidate any and everyone who worked there.

Fast paced and hard labor
Lvl 1 Packer (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSOctober 4, 2018
The pay was good, but it seemed as if there was no balance there. The place ran 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There wasn't at all any balance to live
Pros
Lunch and shift breaks, WOF tickets
Cons
Machines failing, cleaning up after others, working every day and rotating shifts

Type 30 Fabrication Operator (TLZ) (Current Employee) –  Amarillo TexasSeptember 23, 2018
Long hours, most management are good, there was a lack of communication with plant and Human Resources. Everything seems to be top secret. Hardest part of job was rotating from nights and days. Miss a lot of family time.
Pros
Weekly pay, co-workers
Cons
Hours, rotation from days to nights, hard to work with a family, or trying to go the college

Great pay, not so nice people
Packer (Former Employee) –  Sedalia, MOSeptember 21, 2018
Some of the managers were nice while others were rude, same thing with the people I worked with, the pay is great, the bits of glass that fall into your eyes on a daily basis is not, no matter how good you think your safety goggles are, u better check again, was also supposed to work 45 days, but they laid us off after two weeks and one week later they were going to start back up, but I got the flu, even have the paperwork from the e.r. but they don't care, was let go, we didn't even get to pack on the line like we were supposed to, they had us busy doing other stuff, they were unprepared, and hired on way to many temps at once and then kept hiring tons more, there's no a/c and it's very humid, oh yay another warehouse that's probably a billion dollar company that can't afford a/c
Pros
The pay
Cons
Coworkers and managment

Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Waxahachie, TXAugust 28, 2018
Owens Corning is a great job if you go there and do your job and stay away from the gossip and nonsense. But for the most part the pay is great and the work isnt hard at all...its a union job and you advance through seniority with the opportunity to make more money
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Lots of gossip and drama

It was ok
Computer Specialist Internship (Current Employee) –  Nephi, UTAugust 14, 2018
I was just an intern. I bounce around from being on the downline to be working as an IT specialist, which got pretty annoying because I wasn't really at the same spot the for very long.
