I have been working at Pella full-time (Less than a year)
Fun and relaxed work environment. Opportunities to advance if you want them and work hard. Not all branches are corporate owned but are small local businesses (sometimes a con).
Unorganized and wavering goals as a company. Training is limited to none. Most people without the "I can do" or "I'll figure it out" drives fail or struggle. Some things are pushed under the rug allowing long time employees to basically run the place or do things like talk to managers without respect.
Advice to Management
Set clear goals. Train for your department to succeed and decrease turn over. Don't allow things to be swept under the rug because you don't want to deal with it or because employees have worked there for a long time. Just because things have always been done a certain way doesn't mean they are correct or best.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pella in January 2017.
The HR representative described the job and duties. The job was more research less design and not a good fit for either of us. Very professional, we had a great conversation, but this wasn't the right job.
