    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at JELD-WEN.

    Interview Details

    There wasn't much of an interview, they don't hire internally they hire through a temp to hire company. They mainly hire people at a bottom level and weed people on the production lines. If you can pee in a cup and stack doors you'll probably get hired on full time.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't a lot of questions when I get called in. When I did get hired on full time though they do make you do a personality test and a basic fractions and math test.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was none since it was through a temp agency.
