    Great Company

    Most often a good place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEnvironmentally conscience, great community supporter, tries to do the right thing for employees. An excellent product with a great reputation.

    ConsLittle opportunity for advancement, no assistance in career planning, supervisors that bully get away with it, and promises when hired have not been fulfilled. I think some of the core company values have gone by the wayside in favor of the bottom line.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to all employees and work to take action when problems at a supervisory level. Assist employees that are working on their career to advance them to new opportunities. Realize that employees are your biggest asset. Be careful of using only market rate for compensation guidelines, as the job market is opening up other employers are offering better pay.

    Temporary Summer Assembly

    Temporary Production Associate (Former Employee) Bayport, MN

    ProsI was home from college for the summer and was searching for employment from May to August when I needed to return to school. I had some other options but chose Andersen because of the pay, which I thought was very reasonable for the work I was doing. I was fortunate to be able to work 40 or more hours a week and was able to take some time off for visting friends out of town with notice. My co-workers were friendly and respectful. Most of them were permanent full-timers. My partner and I met our quota and were never scolded by our supervisor. The company is very safety oriented and we were given all of the proper tools and PPE required, other than shoes, to be able to perform our jobs safely. I left on good terms and was to be considered for re-hire in following years.
    The company is very involved in the community and has a rich history.

    ConsThe work was very repetitive, though that was expected. It was sometimes very hot, although we would be allowed extra breaks for water and a few extra minutes at lunch. The amount of work depends on the market. Windows are made as ordered so sometimes there was little work and people may be sent home early or asked not to come in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI was happy with the opportunity to work at Andersen. The job was what I expected and the pay what I needed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
