Acting Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lamar, MO – August 29, 2018
Was not bad place the front office people did not have any respect for production workers. They live normal lives running during working hours and hardly ever worked a full 40 hr week and took off when they wanted. Production workers have strict rules and punishment for such actions even when not needing protection.
Good pay and benefits
Short breaks, hot environment, more work with less people they like RIWF
Don't understand the way management chooses the people they promote.
Cog in the Machine (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – June 20, 2018
It seems that people being promoted are related to a higher up or kiss rear ends very well. I had volunteered, asked for additional training, showed the hunger to achieve more, but it didn't make a difference. Eventually my spark and eager to learn and succeed was snuffed out because hiring managers wouldn't give me the time of day.
One of the highest pay rates for Joplin.
Hard to advance, get stuck in jobs that don't allow you to grow
Forklift (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 13, 2018
Working at Tamko; I've had the opportunity to work in the production and the shipping side for a little while as a temp employee. We had a 12 hr. or more rotating shift. My first 2 weeks they had a manager that had been there for 12 years get a laceration in his hand from a machine. They had a high turnover rate. The jobs tasks weren't difficult if the machine would stay on, but their machine would break down quite a bit. When it broke down we had to hurry and clean the mess made from the asphalt and the fiberglass sheet and repair it as soon as possible; so the system wouldn't shut down. Due to the lack of personnel, co-workers would be relieved by other co-workers or a manager. some most days i would only get 15 minutes break in a 12 hr period because if a break in the line would occur everyone would have to come.i enjoyed the challenge of learning new things. What i liked least is when i had a question or an idea about a problem in the workplace that we never had time to talk or walk through it.
money and hours
They have too many managers giving orders against each other.
Customer Loyalty Representative (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – June 13, 2018
This has been great for me and my family. Management is caring and supportive. Schedule was set, but exceptions could be made. The company works with me and my religion and required days off. I recommend working here.
Marketing Intern (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – April 19, 2018
Very close-quarters environment at the corporate office. Everyone is always breathing down your neck. You can't do anything without sending 150,000 beautifully worded and meticulously edited emails only to have an executive respond "OK".
Western District Waterproofing Manager (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – December 31, 2017
They lost focus of customer in the last 2 years. Upper management thinks they need to know every move from employees and add to work load from micro management stand point which has interfered with the customers. Tamko sucks you in then will not listen to the commen sense solutions.
Research and Development Intern (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – September 19, 2017
Tamko has a very friendly and easy going enviroment. Every employer I have come across working at Tamko is very helpful and has a positive attitude. Tamko also deals with the black belt program which helps employers become more familiar with management.
I started there through a temp service never thought it would turn out to be the life changing experience, I was truly blessed to work with some of the greatest group of guys I've ever known. It's a very welcomed environment with lots of good work ethics and strong leadership.
pays really well, just not worth the stress. Things break down constantly, the yelling, anger and long hours really mess with you mentally. The hardest part of the job is trying to keep the 20+ year employees satisfied with your work ethic which is never done.
The people on your crew make the Company as a whole good or bad. I got the best crew ever.
Job Work/Life Balance
was able to cut up and still get the job done with no repercussions
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – March 7, 2017
I liked knowing that everyday was going to progress the same as the day before. Always training in progress, all the staff was very helpful. being allowed to cut up, have food days and still get our job done.
All Benefits were great, Gave Awards for Service Years
I would operate the Forklift on a daily basis to achieve my scheduled work deadlines. I am very knowledgeable of the many mechanical features (boom/scoop, swivel hook, lift beam, grapple, clamps, elevating platform, and trailer hitch) of the Forklift and operate it at all times in a safe manner. I also maintain/inspect the Forklift regularly to keep it in good working condition.
