I worked at Universal Forest Products full-time (More than a year)
Good company culture- work hard, play hard Lots of locations allowing you to mobility Benefits are fair People are helpful and positive
Low pay for entry level and trainee positions forcing a lot of the good talent to take other jobs. A lot of the people from my class have left because they were offered better salaries with other companies. If the salary is slightly lower people would stay but it's more than that.
Advice to Management
Give good talent a reason to stick around! Culture only takes you so far. I am out because I could only take a low salary for so long. I wanted it to work.

He told me I would get an email outlining the job offer. I never received such email. Just a phone call from tne office assistant asking when I could come in. When I questioned the inconsistencies I was told to check my job offer email (that I never got). When I told him I never got one he just simply said "well I sent it, I dont knowwhat to tell ya".
