Horrible management

You will be lied to in interview. Do not make plans at all. Have to check schedule every day before leaving to look for changes. Will catch you on way out the door and make you stay over. Manager couldn’t manage a bake sale let alone a department. Foreman couldn’t schedule a party to save his life. Let alone a work schedule. Company does not care about you or your family. Will schedule you 13-4 days in a row. 10-12 hour days mixed in. But again schedule changes every day. I would not recommend ANYONE apply with this company.

Pros

Maybe pay. But even that not worth it

Cons

MANAGEMENT. Lack of home life. Liars. Thieves.

Stay away

Pay is good but not family oriented employer. Work is not hard but stressful. Need to rush to get things done and when rushing, that's when accidents occur.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Forcing to stay 4 hr OT 20 mins bedore shift ended

Job is horrible

One of the worst organizations I’ve ever been apart of . Higher power asks you a question but give you the answer . No one listens or even cares nothing is consistent. Schedule changes at the drop of a dime place is ran as close to a jail as it can get.

Not fair employment

Kept getting told I would get a raise once I learned how to do something needed but never got my raise. I wouldnt reccomend this place because they choose favorites over work ethic.

Pros

None

Cons

Horrible management and teamwork

Productive environment

Productive environment with room to grow. Work/life balance could be a lot better. Can be stressful some days due to call volume. Could use a lot more culture within but they're making progress.

Relaxed and laid back atmosphere

Always something to learn about the company, the people and the job itself. Once you learned the job it became a second nature. As long you performed you duties there was no micro management. They trusted you when you gave your best.

Productive and Fun workplace

Productive and Fun workplace. I have learned a lot from my seniors. The management was very good. As usual, every workplace has it's own work environment and this company also has their own culture which i like the most

It's a good job

Management is pretty laid back. The hours are flexible and if you have to leave early for whatever reason they work with you. Overall it's easy laid back work.

Exciting and fun place to work

Relationship based company with support across the spectrum of disciplines. Many opportunities to advance - especially if you like new places in the US or around the world.

USG is lead by bunch of incompetent leaders

Unfortunately the company is lead by a very short sided individuals. (Specialty ceilings specifically) company is switching directions every year to fit some arbitrary goal they can't achive. Leadership has no idea who are the key players that are valuable for the company. Many were let go and have gone to competition without any vetting on the value of thier cocontribution. Stay away at least from Ceilings Plus and thier specialty division untill they change the GM there.

Applicants Beware

Worked in the Delavan, WI location on 2nd shift. We cleaned more than anything else, it left a lot of time for people to get into trouble. There was one clique where if they didn't like you, you were in big trouble. They'd make every day miserable, and management would always just turn the other way. Supervisors would hide in the office while the clique would do whatever they want, normally harassing other people and not doing their work. There weren't a lot of people on this shift, probably because a majority of the shift were bullies (including the supervisors), and no one could bear to stay. So, if you're applying here, think twice.

Good work, good people but things are changing

Excellent job and work, good managers and understanding leadership. Could use improvements with many employees and had very little 20-30 year old employee. Beware with recent buyout from Knauf things are changing

If you like getting screwed over this is the place for you!

Don’t care about employees. Your just another number. If you get injured outside of work they won’t accommodate you and will tell you that, even though federal states different! Like to take tour paid vacation from you also!

Pros

None

Cons

To many to list

Deduction analyst

Disappointing Company

This is a great company to work for if you enjoy challenges and learning about new areas. You are given the chance to work in multiple departments. But do not expect to be recognized for doing more or for doing an exceptional job.

Good pay and benefits, lots of hours

Good pay and benefits, but you will work long hours. Management can be overbearing, too many young inexperienced people in management positions. Always trying to come up with more safety rules.

Great Company with Great People

The strongest quality from USG is absolutely the people. Everyone around you has a combined decades worth of experience that'll assist you when you ask. Everyone is approachable all the way up to the C-suite who can be found semi regularly. My only main complaint is the lack of advancement at the company which needs work in order to properly recognize and shift accordingly to the demand.
