Productive place to work but Machines in dire need of updates.
Machine Operator (Current Employee), Sherman, TXJuly 24, 2014
It is a nice and fun place to work but the machines there can never stay running because of faulty or old parts they choose to work around instead of replacing so there are some times that we do not come into work for one day to one week.

Productive employee but no room for advancement and unstable
Maintenance Tech/Lead Vibration (Former Employee), Sulphur, LAJune 15, 2014
Pros: very good communication and teamwork
Cons: the benefits were not very good
I did enjoy the multi craft work. There was always something different to do and something new to learn.The management was demanding but it was so to keep the work timely and cost efficient.My co workers were great and worked well together. There was good communication and teamwork. The hardest part of working at CertainTeed was the batch process and – more... continuous turnarounds but I did enjoy the work especially the vibration analysis and the safety at this company. – less

fun but no career advancement
forklift operator (Current Employee), Little Rock, ARFebruary 16, 2014
my co-workers are very friendly the only thing that I do not like about the job is that there is no opportunity for career advancement that all,
no matter how long you been working for them you will make the same paid with somebody that they hire today if you are doing the same job.

Heavy Equipment Operator / Lead Mill operator (Former Employee), Seattle, WAAugust 30, 2013
Most days there you never know whats going to happen. Might run and might not. Pretty much self motivate yourself and others to keep busy. Fix things as needed. Learned a lot about control and functionality of how to keep employees happy and to do their best. Management didn't follow procedures with paperwork nor staying on path with employee needs – more... and responsibility's. – less

Machine Operator (Former Employee), Peachtree City, GAAugust 12, 2013
Pros: great, safe environment to work in.
Cons: if i had to say one it would be the varying temperature, but there are measures to make the environment more copable.
A typical day at CertainTeed is ..best put unpredictable. but always exciting. I have learned the essential meaning of teamwork here and how to achieve short term goals by depending on my counterparts. I've also learned how to coexist with people from varying backgrounds and mindsets in a sometimes stressful environment.
Management is very fair and – more... committed to excellence and lead by example. My co-workers are dependable and dedicated to a common goal. The hardest part of the job is working in fiberglass it is a skin irritant but there are measures taken to make it less irritable. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see the finished product coming off of the line and knowing I had a hand in producing it. – less

nice friendly environment, but no management talked to me
material handler (Former Employee), senora,ncJuly 29, 2013
Pros: feels like a team working on floor, all people (you work with like a team\friend)
Cons: only met my supervisor (what i was told she was) once and they fired me with no clue why, took week to get some reason why, which if they told me i might of changed/sped up
New plant built maybe year or two before...contracted through a temp agency in NY or NJ for a 3rd shift position. thought was training on 2nd for a week but terminated me first day of second week and management never said anything to me, just told my placement company I was slow, but it was an 8 hour shift straight with with 30 minute break whenever – more... team was switching tasks (was a packer of gypsum board). I think the training was quick and not great, 1st day I did everything the job required-learning while doing, a week (5 days) and was terminated work no warning before they even started the shift they were training me for. The entire building floor was concrete and had my feet\sole hurting after first day (standing entire shift) and walking funny by 3rd day
(I think they were hiring a new\fresh 3rd shift team while I was there, the entire time) Majority of workers acted like supervisors, but cooler and friendlier than actual supervisor, but think cause I was new worker. – less

Machine Operator (Former Employee), Peachtree City, GAJuly 8, 2013
Pros: great compensation
A typical workday is a 12 hour shift and would consist of starting up the production line or relieving the previous shift of their duties which is overall to keep the line running smoothly. my shift would begin by first making checks on the materials and the machines to ensure proper operation and optimum production of the materials we made. This is – more... a fast paced continually shifting environment in which most employees are cross-trained to work on all stations and machines, which also includes forklifts and other product making machines. – less
