    Sad Place

    Production Manager (Former Employee) Yakima, WA

    ProsThere is no best thing about this place, its a managerial disaster, they allow you to get busted with drugs
    or alcohol in your system and "give" you a chance...

    Consgetting everybody to work together, on the same page , and to show up for work on time, or show up for work period

    Advice to Senior Managementpull your heads out of your air holes and get off the internet and or smartphone and get involved in what the hell
    product you are making....you pay "incentive" to absolute morons to screw up windows i.e. wrong glass/no grid/no screen/
    wrong grid...the list is endless...but the pay these morons extra money to continue to do it...but if you get caught with
    drugs in your system...its ok....

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disgraceful, arrogant and not worth the time. And poor wages

    Anonymous (Current Employee) Pottsville, PA

    ProsNone really. Overtime, but it's crammed down your throat and if you burn out, no advantages for the 60-70 hrs weeks you did put in.

    ConsLots! Management has to be #1 issue.
    Prejudicial treatment for friends, family members and 1st shift.
    #1 comment from a manager- Not my problem, ask someone else.
    #2 is I don't know!
    Equipment never gets fixed, the "buck" is always passed, and the high turnover means you'll know more about your job in 6 months than the 22 yr old manager of 2 months.
    Also it REALLY pays to be male... No female floor managers. They do have some as leads, I think??

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk the people who know their job. Fully implement any 1 of your 50 ideas. Try to be fair to ALL your employees, not your buddies. Get some diversity, this way you have more thought out solutions to the myriad if problems slowing production. Stop trying to outdo the next shift and help each other... There's lots. Managment needs an overhaul from the top down.

    No professionalism on any level

    Group Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsTeaches you how not to run a manufacturing facility

    ConsVery long hours every week. Frequent mandatory weekend work with no clear goals set at the start of the day. Little to no notice of overtime. Lack of leadership and vision by upper management. Everybody operates in a state of fear of being written up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to trust people once they are in a position. Try something new once in a while. Get some education in the field you are working in.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Venice, FL

    Its not what you know, its who you know

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are worse jobs out there.. if you look hard enough. The pay is slightly above minimum wage, im really trying to think positive here

    ConsGroup Managers at jeld-wen uk get away with doing next to nothing. Some have got into Group manager positions simply for being pals with the C.O's . No Bonus's or Pay rises in years. No possibility of self-improvement within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPull your head out of the sand, and start taking responsibility! Also you have skilled workers in unskilled jobs on unskilled pay rates! Utilize us!

    Consdont care about their people. Laid off 120 on Dec 16. There feelings were better you than me. Benefits stink, (they paid medical bills. Suggested you look up you sickness on webmd!) no raises, no bonuses NOTHING!

    Advice to Senior Managementall you care about is yourself, dont look at big picture as long as YOU have a job, forget the real world as working in the field.
