    I have been working at Simonton Windows full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You receive training on unique equipment; CNC and Robotic Cutters. Decent pay for the industry, plus insurance and a retirement plan. There also is an opportunity to further your education.

    Cons

    Not all associates are offered a chance for personal growth. It all depends who is assessing you. Some office personnel feel they are above you. The expectations between the shifts are not standard and uniform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the process before you try to change it. When posting a position and stating the qualifications, hire only qualified individuals.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance for most things. You usually know in advance when long hours are required (e.g. - month end). CEO and other executives are approachable.

    Cons

    Not as much opportunity for advancement in Simonton itself. Potential to advance within a sister company but that involves moving. Not as much time off as prior employment.

    Pros

    Not bad pay for the area

    Cons

    Supervisor doesn't treat employees with the same set of rules

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees should have the same set of rules to follow, Smokers should not get more paid breaks than the non-smokers. Non-smokers don't get 3 breaks before lunch and 2 after lunch like the smokers do. We all shuld be treated equal. Group leaders should have to do more work, some of them work and some of them stand around eating and drinking , talking to their friend.

    Very professional company. To the point where people don't matter as much as the bottom line does.

    Pros

    Hamburgers, hotdogs and chips. You also get a t-shirt.

    Cons

    they don't really care to much about their employess. Pay is a joke, not a whole lot of incentive to stay. That's why you see a lot of new people in the summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need all new upper management. Also you are supposed to take care of the people who take care of you and Simonton windows does not. Need to be more competitive in the work force to keep good employess.
