very bad culture
Sr. Continuous Improvement Manager (Former Employee) –  Florence, ALJuly 3, 2018
Work place culture is this is how we have always done it the upper management does not back it supervisors and consistently steals ideas and credit for any improvements. I would tell anyone if you have another option do not pick Tarkett.
Cons
bad air quality dirty atmosphere no leadership

No longer the company I started with.
Planning Manager (Former Employee) –  Dalton, GAJune 19, 2018
I joined Tarkett in the fall of 2013. The company I left in May of 2018 was nothing like what I started with. Management changes, a stressful working environment, and departmental restructuring has caused a lot of good people to quit or transfer to another department. The stress level has increased exponentially, to the point where a typical work week in my department was a minimum of 50 hours plus (usually closer to 60), including having to work from home in the evenings and on the weekends just to try to stay current. Management turnover was nearly as bad as employee turnover. In 4.5 years, I had 5 different managers. The team I worked with was wonderful, and I’ve not seen a more dedicated group. However, as the stress level and workload increased, along with more and more manual processes, those good employees began to slowly leave, resulting in an ever-increasing flow of new hires who had to be trained, but the resources to train them were long gone by the time their first day arrived. Daily meetings could take up anywhere from a quarter to over half of the work day. Eventually, the complete lack of work/life balance and stress levels prompted me to leave the company and it honestly was a decision that was easy to make. I hope Tarkett examines the exodus of employees that has taken place over the last year and does something to retain their veteran employees. If not, it will simply continue to spiral out of control.
Pros
Wonderful team, Decent benefits
Cons
Long hours, turnover, lack of work life balance

Management cares more about how fast your line is running than how much product gets shipped out
Operator/take off (Current Employee) –  Chagrin Falls, OHMay 16, 2018
If management could understand that if you run a line under rate and pack parts other than try to run at rate and scrap, the floor would be much more productive.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Hours, management

Professional yet relaxed atmosphere
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) –  City of Industry, CAMay 15, 2018
Tarkett is one of the world’s largest floor covering manufacturers, and is ecologically responsible, successful, and stable. The strength of the corporation provides security and unrivaled benefits, yet each division is managed locally and personally.
Pros
Outstanding medical, dental, vision and life insurance, competitive pay, and matching 401k.
Cons
Very busy, but it makes the time pass quickly... sometimes, too quickly!

Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Newburgh, NYMay 11, 2018
Slow paced work days, I learned how to operate a die cutting machine. Management was very easy to get along with. Workplace culture was like family. The hardest part of the job would be lifting heavy materials. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to listen to music while you worked.
Pros
Slow paced work days
Cons
There was not much overtime available

If you are not a white male or female you won't advance anywhere at all
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Solon, OHMarch 6, 2018
So many things to say. Thinking of speaking to an attorney based on the unfair treatment of some employees not having any ability to move forward and advance within the company because of race and culture.
Pros
Plenty time-off days
Cons
The issue is its a problem to use those off days because they never want anyone to take off

Mismanagement
Distribution Center Associate (Current Employee) –  Middlefield, OHJanuary 10, 2018
Stay away if you want to have a personal life and stay healthy. You will work almost everyday for low pay based on your job. Your back will defiantly be ruined. Drug addict are all around and they will not do drug screens. If your injured they will try to get rid of you. The manager will not listen to any of the workers or supervisors until things go south. The facility does not have enough machines to even get your daily task done. The scan guns will malfunction because of our new inventory system and they WILL blame it on you. They want you to work fast but you have to scan all products to move forward. This company is on its way out if it's not managed correctly.
Pros
If hired before 2018 you get paid time and a half after 8hrs.
Cons
If hired in 2018 you will make time and a half after 40hrs.

Company needs a clear identity.
Commercial Regional Business Manager (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MODecember 28, 2017
With the acquisition of Tandus-Centiva, the company is in a state of confusion. There are 2 completely different business models at play and 2 different pay structures. There is no clear path moving forward as to how Johnsonite and Tandus-Centiva are suposed to gel. It's a complete mess and very confusing to the distribution channel, the A&D community, and the employees.
Pros
Good pay and good benefits
Cons
Bad life-work balance and no clear route to market strategy moving forward.

Marketing (Former Employee) –  Solon, OHOctober 4, 2017
Horrible senior management team. Extremely high turnover rate at all levels.

No vision
No strategy
No innovation pipeline
No performance accountability from anyone

Lost in the woods is the best descriptor.

Management Sucks!!!
extrusion (Current Employee) –  Munn Rd Chagrin fallsSeptember 22, 2017
At the Munn Rd. location management is an absolute JOKE, it seems as if the less you know the more you get promoted. They will try to run you as fast as they can and work you way more hours then they tell you when hired. Stay AWAY from this place!!
Cons
Terrible management, dusty conditions

Fast Paced and Friendly Place to Work
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Dalton, GAAugust 22, 2017
This is a challenging place to work, on occasion, but the managers and people here make it worth it. For a lot of jobs, the day to day won't change much, but there is amazing opportunity for advancement within the administrative side of the business.
