Great! Place to work if you don't mind physical work like I do. Love my co-workers and shift supervisor. Benefits and pay were wonderful. I would had only changed the swing shifts because that can be hard on families.
Production Technician (Current Employee) – Tallmadge, OH – June 25, 2018
okay company if you don't mind the hours and climate change. in the summer factory can get extremely hot and super cold in the winter time. All shifts are 12 hours meaning there are long weeks and short weeks. with weekly pay
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.
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
The job is hot all year round about 110 degrees to be exact. Long sleeves uniform for safety. location has showers and locker room. They supply everything needed to complete your job. Once they are full with inventory they shut down production and reopen once stock is low.
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.

it is a union job which has both advantages and did advantages. they come up with procedures that leads to favoritism on picking certain people for jobs that's totally unfair. Its a who you know and hang out with on if you'll get the job or not on the key position jobs.
Back End Relief (Current Employee) – Kearny, NJ – June 3, 2018
Working st Owens corning is not that bad. However. The management is very poor. For example, Slack of decision. Also in my plant we have been working 13 days and 1 day off for about 2.5 years.

The management here is terrible with the big expansion happening there is disregard for the constant changing of schedules and placing current and new memebres everywhere which increases the risk or safety and effectiveness of doing your job
Temp. Utility Technician (Former Employee) – Compton, CA 90222 – May 21, 2018
The atmosphere is very negative. As a utility worker you are treated like scum by some of the techs that have been there for years. No one wants to be outperformed so they will literally sabotage your work to make sure you do not get promoted. Do not work here.
Decent place if you are fine with the position you get stuck in.
Fork Lift Operator (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – April 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.
