Poor culture
The place is very old so it keeps you busy
High stress environment with no support

Direct supervision is good and they do the best they can but the upper management and the union ofttimes get in the way

No plans no parts no budget

Patch it together and try to keep it running is the best it gets

Production staff are useless and will ruin hard work and a good machine almost immediately after it is repaired

Awful
Poor management that only rewards those with long noses accustomed to bad smells.
Only redeeming quality is the people on the floor working day in and out. Unfortunate how poorly the place is being ran

“Safety first...until production is down”

Stay away
Long probation, rushed and unprofessional “training”. Equipment is ALWAYS broken. Extremely low company moral. There’s almost always a fear of losing your job. Union doesn’t do anything about issues or bullying in the work place. One of the WORST experiences in this lifetime.
Pros
Good wage
Cons
Everything else

Long Probation HA HA
Well seemed good when starting there but they do have big problems between management and the union. Their speaker system sounds like a dying cat and we were suppose to understand anything that someone said over it??? Spent two weeks shoveling insulation on a belt while workers came over and asked in disbelief, " No one has trained you on the bagging machines yet???" I said no then sent back to shovel more insulation on a belt. Then finally training and a week and a half later I was not keeping up enough even though everyone was telling me I was doing great. They say they have changed their HR ways but its still 50 and 60 year old union members who you never meet having meetings you are not invited to making decisions. You do not just bag there, there are 4 or 5 different machines to learn, computer systems and how to stop machines from jamming all while you are going like Speedy Gonzalas trying to keep up with bags. People there were good and friendly but come on guys you really need to come up with a better training program and at least give people 3 months for probation before they let you go. Very mixed up there.
Pros
pay
Cons
bad training, old equipment

Good for single person.
Great starting company for someone to being a sub-contractor as it is really good pay and the time spent on sites is about two weeks at a time.
seeing the look on the customers face when job is done.

layoff
Old dying plant which offers nothing for young and upcoming folks.

Mass layoff means most of the plant went to Mexico, 30 yr Union employees were worried they wouldn't avoid layoff
Pros
well paid
Cons
dirty hard work

Antique equipment kept you very busy
The days started with a group meeting after you would be partnered and given your tasks for the day, then you would go and try and find parts if they weren't there you would move on to the next job
Pros
cafeteria
Cons
12 hr day/night shift

They teach you how to do the job right from the start. Since what you are carrying is 30lb they ease you into it. They only let you do half the job for the first week so you don't hurt yourself.
Pros
Long lunch
Cons
Was a summer student

Great place to work many friends. To sum it up for ya all.......wages ok, USA benefits, excellent Team members and finally the plant manager was honest, polite and kept his word until it all ended. Id work for that guy again in any business.

Factory with great health and safety and environmental initiatives.
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 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.
