Very toxic environment. Management has no organizational or leadership abilities. Retired after 25 years to work for a real company.
I loved shaw but people will lie on u and cause u yo job love the work just dislike some of the people
It took about 3 and a 1/2 weeks. 1st interview by phone. Then if you meet the criteria, 2nd interview with a panel of 3 ppl. HR Manager, Superintendent and the Director for the region. Very tedious interview, as they are extremely selective. Be prepared to answer a variety of questions, mostly S.T.A.R. based and it's about a hour long. After interview (if you qualify), you'll do a additional walkthrough interview with one of your existing senior peers, about 30mins touring the facility and answering questions regarding your experience. Final portion will be your drug test/background screening if you make it through all 3 segments. I liked the fact that they are selective and make a decision across mulltiple interactions before hiring you. It shows their dedication to hiring wisely and selecting quality team members.
It depends, in the Alabama plant we are now running 252 positions per operator in twisting and it is nightmarish. Seldom do we get breaks and when we do the job might as well be on fire when we get back. If you get lucky and get put on a 168 position job its pretty reasonable.
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Shaw Industries?
They ask a lot of questions about being a team player and they want to know examples of bad situations that you were able to make better.
Shaw don't need a union they need some management to get rid of their dead weight. Takes 10 hours to pick up a small load. It's sad that some do well but a majority I see are lazy
