I have been working at JELD-WEN

Pros

Comfortable, relaxed place to work; good work environment; fair pay for fair effort; good benefits; long-term benefits are first-rate

Cons

Owned and operated by one or two people, so subject to fits of whim and fancy by those individuals; Current economic condition has led to multiple layoffs, terminations, reduction in work hours and salaries

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make a stronger effort to retain valuable employees in these economic hard times; be more cautious in acquiring other companies; place a higher value on employees

    I have been working at JELD-WEN

    Pros

    It is a good company that takes pretty good care of their employees. The management at the plant level was good to work with and all worked pretty well together. When I was there everyone wanted to do a good job and everyone worked pretty well together to accomplish the overall goals of the plant.

    Cons

    Working in a factory gets a little monotonous. The extreme heat and cold temperatures make it uncomfortable in the winter and the summer months. Being a private company we were left out of the loop on a lot of information that we would have been notified of if the company was public and had to disclose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be More Open With Information About The Company.

    I have been working at JELD-WEN full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good job advancement opportunities for those that are willing to work hard without continuously complaining

    Cons

    Office management not being able to visualize the overwhelming work loads of some and spreading it out so employees are not burnt out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    View overall employee work loads by dealer, account sales per year, # of salesman per account, dealer proximity to JELD-WEN plant to determine work load of employees. Better tools to deal with customer questions, quicker changes to company quoting and internal system.
