    JELD-WEN is one of the best companies to work for.

    Retirement Benefits Ops Manager (Former Employee)

    ConsKlamath Falls is a hard place to live for a city slicker like myself.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    Growing through acquisitions comes with growing pains.

    Regional Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsDevelop business acumen, strengthen your public speaking, manage multi-million dollar markets, great peers, ability to manage your territory like your own business. Overall, good individual autonomy without micro management.

    ConsCertain markets lag a balance between professional and personal time. Redundant work projects due to lack of planning or per customer request. Cost of living in some markets are higher than others thus, base salary can be a bit short and no opportunity to earn a commission in some channels of business. Position is two-fold; in-store service (janitorial work) and some outside sales opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop printing/sign relationships closer to regions to minimize shipping costs and lag time to receive ordered items. Review Marketing staff as repetitive and costly mistakes continue to be made. They may be short staffed or need help working within unrealistic timelines. Vision for new products is great---keep that initiative. Develop commission structure to maintain a quality salesforce in all channels. Divest of in-store activities to part-time hiring firms.

    Great place to work when the economic times are good

    Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee)

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

    ConsOwned 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 Senior ManagementMake 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

    Good Place To Work

    Group Manager (Current Employee)
    Lexington, NC

    ProsIt 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.

    ConsWorking 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 Senior ManagementBe More Open With Information About The Company.
