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

    Pros

    I really enjoy the group that I work with, and I love what I do. The community among co-workers is very friendly.

    Cons

    Upper management has lost sight of employees and focuses ONLY on the dollar. Upper management including our CEO make promises to our customers that they expect us to keep NO MATTER the cost to us personally in time spent at the office or vacation lost while they do nothing to help meet that expectation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying your employees competitive wages!

    Pros

    Teaches you how not to run a manufacturing facility

    Cons

    Very long hours every week. Frequent mandatory weekend work with no clear goals set at the start of the day. Little to no notice of overtime. Lack of leadership and vision by upper management. Everybody operates in a state of fear of being written up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to trust people once they are in a position. Try something new once in a while. Get some education in the field you are working in.

    Working at JELD-WEN was one of the greatest experiences of my life. They are more like a family than a business. I still keep in touch with many people working there years after leaving.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    great people to work with lots of over time and lots of product going out wich means no layoffs

    Cons

    not enough pay to much pressure on a few individuals to get things done rather than forcing others to do their jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay the good workers what they are worth or you will lose them if you dont recognize what you have with an emploee somebody else will and they will pay them what they are worth if you wont.
