In 1995, the Board of Directors launched the American Woodmark Foundation, an employee-
run organization that coordinates the company’s charitable giving activities.
The foundation’s primary giving areas include: education, housing, fire and safety, domestic
violence, and providing funds for operating expenses.

of both salaried and hourly employees, at each locality, review and prioritize incoming
requests for support. Each team considers it a privilege to provide support to their
The foundation’s support is limited to public charities, as recognized by the IRS under section
501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In addition, the organization must meet the locality
requirement to be eligible for consideration, supporting the foundation’s mission of giving
back to the communities in which our employees live and work. All team recommendations
are reviewed by the foundation board prior to approval.
In addition to the foundation grants, our employees have many opportunities to volunteer
their personal time and services to help improve the quality of life of fellow citizens in their

Humanity to build homes, holding food and collection drives to support local nonprofit
organizations, serving meals at The Salvation Army, interacting with seniors at adult care

I have been working at American Woodmark full-time (More than 10 years)
American Woodmark attracts employees that truly care, not only about the company, but more importantly about each other. The company stands by its core values, never turning a blind eye, caring just as much about how things get done as what gets done.
Not a lot to say in the cons. Sometimes our locations can be a challenge, but at the same time, our locations provide a great place to raise families and have a balanced lifestyle.
Advice to Management
It is the "how" that truly differentiates who we are!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at American Woodmark (Winchester, VA) in November 2016.
It was pretty quick. 1 phone interview and 4 in person interview. Culture of the company is very good. All of the 4 people I met during interview made me comfortable. Everyone in the company is super friendly and respectful.
