bunker mentality
It's great working at Saint Gobain but the nature of the business is that you are often working at cross purposes with someone in one of the subsidiary companies. There is very much a bunker mentality.

The work isn't difficult or stressful but can feel as if it is futile when you try to apply it to a system that is so resistant to change.


The pay is adequate if not brilliant and they have a habit of suddenly making groups of people redundant.
Pros
Good work environment and colleagues
Cons
Nothing ever happens.

Don't work for this company.
They throw you in at the deep end, don't care about you; the managers don't care about you and they treat you like something you stand on.
Don't work work for this company as they Do Not Care About Employees Welfare

They asked me to build up shelving racks in their new store and I did this.When I finished they sacked me



the shelves

Lower than 1 star.
One word... DON’T

You will be asked to sign risk assessments that will trap you in every aspect of your work.

Yes, there are risks involved, but with a sensible head on your shoulders, these are managed.

I never caused a single accident in 4yrs of working there.


You’re not assessed after passing your test. The appraisal process is simply a box ticking exercise.

I the Midlands, they currently have a very dodgy transport manager. He will lie at every opportunity to protect himself, rather than taking the grown up approach. (You’ve been warned)


HR/ER are pro management, so don’t waste your time approaching them for support.

Fast paced, quality control perfection
Working for Glass Solutions as part of St.Gobain as a Line Worker is fast paced but manageable.

Floor management is ok, but could be much better, however, the lads working throughout the factory will always lend a hand if needed.


Very strong level of teamwork, and the majority of us try our best with the machinery we have.


Overall - Would recommend working here, rewarding pay for good months and some decent lads

Bad points - Shift pattern (06:00 - 15:00 / 14:00 - 23:00) fortnightly, debatable floor management choice

No respect for drivers...
I CONSTANTLY had arguments with the kid doing transport. He told me because it's an 18t truck he can put 18t load on it ffs. New manager (kid) bad mouthed me in front of other staff and customers and because I fronted him and told him not to I got sacked for unprofessionalism. They also expect you to do unpaid o/t for time in lieu, but when you ask for your time back you get excuse after excuse

Keep at arms length
I have been working here for a number of years and SGBD will never change as long as management allows bullying, gossiping, unprofessionalism, favoritism and office politics to occur.
The toxicity is lethal. I hate coming into work, it has made employees sick and disengaged resulting to high turnover of staff.

The toxicity comes from various categories of types of co-workers within the office. The team I work in has full of chatterboxes, brownnosers and dead weights.

There are a few unenthusiastic people who are not interested in participating in any work activity and thrive on doing the least possible every single day. When working with them, only you are needed to do all the work. They don't show the desire to do anything and work only for the paycheck. They won't do anything extra for the company or team and just look for a way to wiggle their way out of a task such as filling up coffee jars.

Amongst the office, another team act very casual about their job and take it for granted; whereby the workers kill time mindlessly surfing the internet and scrolling through there phones throughout the working day. One small group within, love to tell the office about their accomplishments; personal or professional and constantly flirting irrespective of whether they are married or not. One of them comes one day and then disappear for the rest of the week. Sometimes his leave period stretched so long that the whole of office think he’s been sacked or has resigned.

Overall in the office they all try to pretend to be each other’s friend, assure each that there secret is safe

Really good, great benefits. Good leadership and effective team members and a chance to learn too.

Hours of work and timings were flexible and there was no pressure. Great induction phase and plenty of things to learn about the company.

Good at the time....
Unfortunately being made redundant.

Job itself was very varied, as I gained more experience over the years. But the Company focus is now on distribution of material rather than Value Added work.
