Horrible!!!
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Rainier, OR2 September 2017
Rainier plant is horrible! Management lives in their own dream world. They are more concerned about ridiculous programs than making a product. I would highly recommend staying away they will drive you over the edge.

Vacation

Management, useless programs, liars and cheats.

Not a bad job
Mill Operator #5 (Current Employee) –  Fort Dodge, IA19 January 2017
Good job for the money, a more effective and more personal management would make me happier. Top dogs like to walk all over you. A company that expects the best but doesn't treat you well on good performance. Overall a decent work place. I'm sure there is better and much worse too. I tolerated it for 5+ years now
Pros
quarterly bonuses
Cons
poor management, worthless co-workers..

Good pay, very clicky. Lots of favoritism.
Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Mediapolis, IA25 July 2016
Great pay for the job you do. The training process is very slow. Have to learn all 5 jobs on each line to earn your raises. Can be a raise every 6-8 months. Very slow process. Should have all 5 raised by the time your one year anniversary comes. Management shows obvious favoritism. Very very clicky with wrestlers from the area. Make you work weekends to either run production or to clean. Almost never get a whole weekend off without feeling guilty about it. Expect people to work too many hours for no reason. Safety wasn't great.
Pros
Good pay.
Cons
Lots of hours. Poor leadership

Pros
They have a lot of incentives to keep people modivated

Swing shift for some dept.

Productieve organisatie
Debiteurenbeheer / Incasso (Former Employee) –  Almere31 May 2016
Nadat USG de beurs op ging veranderde de mentaliteit van deze organisatie. Het was een geweldige organisatie met doorgroeimogelijkheden en luisterde naar de werknemers.
Het uiterlijk was formeel, maar binnen informeel.
Het personeel was belangrijk, waardoor je als werknemer graag nog een paar tandjes harder ging.

Het was een gezellig , leuk en mooi bedrijf, target gericht, wat ik ook heel graag wilde halen en dit ook realiseerde. Tot de targets onmogelijk werden toen ze beursgenoteerd werden... hoger en hoger en minder mensen. Reorganisaties waarbij mensen van buitenaf aangenomen werden voor een ander beleid, haalde de gezelligheid uit deze organisatie. Wat héél jammer was, want het was een top organisatie en ik hoop dat deze Hollandse organisatie zijn charme weer terug krijgt.
Pros
Er was een top restaurant en de kantoor inrichting is erg mooi.
Cons
De mentaliteit die veranderde nadat ze de beurs opgingen.

Nice company, but a little dated
Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, IL24 May 2016
Flexible work hours, but outdated systems and budget cuts. Business is heavily tied to housing industry which creates some volatility.

Alot of Overtime!
Quality Lab Technician/Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Gypsum, OH21 April 2016
At first USG was the ideal place to work for. Until you start sticking up for yourself about being treated unfair. A lot of overtime, the pay and benefits are great! If you are someone that can keep your mouth shut even though there is a lot of favoritism going on and miscommunication then you are the ideal candidate. They have fired a lot of good hard workers that spent over a decade there, fired them like it was nothing without even being disciplined first. Gotta keep nagging them about learning more jobs for a pay increase also. It's different if they push you to learn a job but it's another story if you want to learn and ask!
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
They will lie on you just to get you fired!

Terrible place
Warehousemen (Former Employee) –  Boca Raton, FL10 April 2016
Usg is a great company but i will never ever work for l and w especially the boca branch
They say they promised to give a raise after 6 months they never did then they say after a year you will get a raise after a year still nothing they kept on lying
And on top of that they dont treat the warehouse employees with any respect and get treated like horrible

1 little mess up and you never hear the end of it.
They make everyday a living terrible for you

And also dont expect to have just one boss becuase everyone wants to be boss there so pretty much everyone who is in the office is your "technically" your boss but not really
Pros
Leaving to go home at the end of the day
Cons
Not so great pay, get treated so terrible, too many bosses, not worth working at
