Sales Team Leader (Former Employee), Manassas, VA – October 24, 2013
I led a group of 4 people to neighborhoods to set up sales appointments for basement finishing. We knocked door to door all day long and I was successful at it. I was the manager in the field and reported to a supervisor the next morning. The hardest part of the job was all the walking and long hours, but i enjoyed working with my people and interacting – more... with the public. – less

Factory with great health and safety and environmental initiatives.
Student Material Handler (Current Employee), Toronto, ON – March 10, 2013
At Owens Corning I worked 12 hour continental shifts. This was my first experience and I found there were benefits to this kind of a work schedule and realized I could be very happy on continental or regular shifts. Typically, you are packaging fiberglass insulation for 6 hours per shift and ensuring that the line is running properly and the surroundings – more... are clean the rest of the time. There is a very good attitude amongst employees and it is a great environment to work in. There is a very strong health and safety program at this company and there are health and safety programs taught to all employees. – less

Customer Customer Support Specialist (Current Employee), Toledo, OH – November 3, 2013
I have enjoyed working at Owens Corning, but unfortunately I work there through a Temporary Agency. I am full-time but there are no benefits. There is opportunity for advancement, but the chance for direct hire is my goal.
A typical work day is not typical. Each day is different depending on the customers that call in. Some days are very challenging – more... with many stressful situations to deal with and other days are less challenging with less stressful situations to deal with.
I have learned about insulation, foam, roofing and logistics.
My management team and co-workers are lots of fun and very supportive.
The hardest part of the job is maintaining a positive attitude while dealing with angry customers. I count this as being one of my strongest attibutes.
The most enjoyable part of my job is when I can change a very negative situation into a positive one and make the customer happy and convince them, that this is just a temporary situation and restore their faith in the company. – less
Relief Person (Current Employee), Memphis, TN – October 31, 2013
Pros: we have insurance
Cons: insurance deductible to high
On a typical day we work hard and laugh hard. I have learned that in the work place you have different attitudes and you need to know how to deal with them all. The best part of my job is when I learn something new.
Franchise operations (Current Employee), Toledo, OH – October 31, 2013
Pros: owens corning basement reviews make the job worth it!
Cons: potential homeowners read reviews and form opinions before they know the product details
I work in the basement finishing division where Owens Corning basements receive great reviews for their innovative product designed specifically for the basement environment. The cost of the Owens Corning basement is worth the price when you consider the mold and mildew resistance, removable walls, sound absorption, and thermal insulation! I enjoy working – more... for a company and product that helps homeowners stay safe and comfortable! – less
