Masonite International – Why Work For Us?

About Masonite

At Masonite, we’ve created stylish, durable, timeless doors for more than 80 years. We believe every door is a connection, and we’ve been building better ones since 1925. Still we continue to evolve. Today we’re meeting new market demands, and applying research with the latest technologies to accelerate innovation and expand our offerings.

Our culture is evolving as well. Internally we embody a values-based workplace and strive to make people feel welcome, respected, appreciated and connected to our vision. We’re implementing better people processes and programs to enable employees to collaborate more, and develop and progress further in their careers.

Building on this solid foundation, we have high expectations for the future. We are fast becoming a stronger, more agile company, building better connections to our customers, becoming more involved with our communities, and rapidly transforming a very significant global industry.

For positive, high-energy people willing to show up and bring 100% of their efforts to an organization built on hard work and strong ethics, this is a place you can connect with.

We are a knowledgeable and highly motivated workforce, and hire strong performers who can make solid contributions to our positive, fast-paced team. We look for people who are customer-focused and ready to think, be heard, be challenged and be recognized for their commitment and contributions. The people who succeed share a passion to develop their skills, advance on their own efforts and help us continue our legacy of achievement.

We’re thinking outside the rectangle. At Masonite, we have a large, global footprint and continue to build a better company as we expand. That’s why our door is always open to new trends, alternative points of view, and better paths to success. Because we believe that inspiration and innovation leads change, our employees are encouraged to be courageous, bring ideas, take risks and think outside the box. And they are recognized for their knowledge and customer focus as we reshape the way we do business and transform our company from the inside out.

The History of Masonite

William H. Mason, founder Breaking Ground at the 1933 World's Fair

Masonite embraces the spirit of our founder, William H. Mason. His ideas and inventions were the building blocks of numerous revolutionary building materials.

In 1924, William H. Mason, a researcher, engineer and inventor, made a revolutionary discovery. He changed the way wood was used to form more effective building materials. This cleared the way for a succession of new building products for the home.

More than 80 years later, we still embrace that innovative spirit. We are constantly looking for new processes, technologies, materials and designs – always with an eye on producing doors that are stylish, functional and durable. Doors that are guaranteed to make your home more beautiful.

Our continued leadership, our innovative spirit and our superior products have earned us a reputation unsurpassed in the industry.

    I have been working at Masonite International full-time (More than 3 years)


    We spend at least 1/3 of our lives at work. Working in the Tampa HQ office with the senior management team has been a very fulfilling experience. Culture and values are great and getting better every day.


    I do not have any cons to report.

    Enegy Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Masonite International in July 2015.


    HR associate contacted me by email to arrange a phone screening. The phone screening was informal, it lasted about 20 minutes. They extended an interview with hiring manager but the daily commute would have been too far for me and I was not willing to relocate for the position. This the reason the phone screening is in place.
