    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People were great to work with. Pay was decent.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations from higher management. Too much micro-managing. Too much mandatory OT for salaried people.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people doing the job. You may learn something.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JELD-WEN (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    Misleading, deceptive, failed to follow up, failed to meet commitments and then went dark when I followed up - fortunately Mickey Mouse firms who treat people like this can't hide their warts forever and eventually no one want to work there. You get what you give.

    Interview Questions

    • All the normal ones as was appropriate. But once I was told by the hiring manger I'd meet with the management team at the site some out-of-touch, ivory tower tool made some arbitrary determination I made too much in my last job and my last role was too high for me to be seriously interested in this lower role.   1 Answer
