    Pros

    KraftMaid has a nice product, and one you believe in while you work for the company. Most every employee employee is great to work with.

    Cons

    Behind the times. They have a long way to go with systems, ideas and innovation before they will be able to retain top talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your systems and methodology. Put things in place to make this a better functioning company and you will make more profit in the long run.

    I worked at KraftMaid Cabinetry

    Pros

    A great salary and good benefits. Sales reps are given a lot of freedom to manage their territory as they see fit. You hardly ever see your manager. Lower level management is easy to deal with or at least mine was.

    Cons

    Communication is very lacking. If you are part of the "MASCO Retail Cabinet Group" on the homecenter side expect to work a lot of hours. You can expect Home Depot employees to call you at 11 at night and 6 in the morning. You WILL take care of their customer complaint or you will regret it. You will work some weekends and evenings, more then you expect or they tell you. You may drive for hours between your daily visits if you are in a rural area. You are very disposable and upper management doesn't try and make you feel any different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication!!! I felt as if upper management was very out of touch with the people in the field. Maybe they should get back out there and see what is going on. I also felt like I didn't matter to the company and of course I guess I didn't as I was laid off when times started to get a little rough.

    Pros

    Kraftmaid Cabinetry offers a variety of training courses in order to 'build' better supervisors and/or managers. Kraftmaid is also the world's leading cabinetry company in offering semi-custom cabinets. Kraftmaid continues to innovate new products and concepts in the marketplace.

    Cons

    The Kraftmaid Cabinetry senior management team is more often than not slow to communicate important issues/policies. Middle managment is often left on their own to 'muddle' through these newly implemented policies or issues with the work force with little to no support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to seriously correct the information gap between themselves and middle management to help ease the transition into new policies. More of an effort needs to be made to support middle management in dealings with the work force on a daily basis.

    Pros

    When the economy is good, the work is all you want. For the most part there is no limit to overtime.

    Cons

    When the economy is good and there is alot of work, you can get jobs you might not want to do .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to relize that drinking the kool aide, and forgetting where they come from is not always the best thing. Not all hourly people are too be looked down at.
