    I worked at Milgard Manufacturing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team of people to work with. Strong commitment to the customer. Good products.

    Cons

    Hit hard by the downturn in housing. As our market kept dropping there were many changes in direction and cuts in headcount. Hard to deal with but understandable as the company (and the industry) were in a fight to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the people working hard to help the organization succeed and give them the tools they need to pursue excellence. Look forward for success in the marketplace, not back to "the good old days".

    Inside Service Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Aurora, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Aurora, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Milgard Manufacturing in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview. Waited for a half hour ready for the call when I received an email from someone in HR saying she couldn't reach me. I replied right back that I was there and had a good cell signal as always - sent from my iPhone.

    The following Tuesday she emails me again asking for another try which I of course agreed to. That Friday we actually talked for about three questions before she dropped off. I waited about 5 minutes for her to call back... nothing. Having her caller ID now I called the number and asked the receptionist for the same person in HR. The line went to voicemail and I left a message.

    Nothing. Sent an email within 15 minutes. Crickets... Sent an email the following Monday... crickets...

    Clearly the most unprofessional and bizarre interview I have ever had. Probably didn't matter anyway as I am sure they were looking for someone with far less experience and salary requirements, but still - how about some professional courtesy?

    After that fiasco I would turn down any offer they might have made.

    Interview Questions
    • Didn't get that far... "why do you want to work here?" and "How does your experience translate to our company"...   Answer Question
