Universal Windows Direct – Why Work For Us?



Who We Are

Whether you are sales man­ager, marketing manager or even president, at UWD, you have the ability to get to wherever you want to be. How high you climb, however, depends on you.

You alone control your destiny, and you decide when you’ve topped out. We want our leaders to come from within, and we actively strive to promote with that in mind. Take the leap. We challenge you to think about how you will take yourself to the next level.

The family atmosphere we all strive to maintain on a daily basis contributes to the feeling that while UWD is somewhat large, it feels very small.

Our people have pas­sion, and we share the same vi­sion. No matter where you are in your travels, whether on the road, in the office or knocking on doors, you’re always part of the family.

Together we can get there, if we continue to work as a team. The sky really is the limit. We are focused on continuing to build our brand, and, most impor­tantly, our team. Because together we are…Universal.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Universal Windows Direct (Bedford, OH) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I met with the recruiter (who is very nice), and she gave me the run down of the position. She explained what I could expect, what the role included, and the various opportunities available to me. She was very thorough. After I met with her, I met with the manager who then reiterated what was talked about in the first interview, and went into further detail about the job, and salary/benefits, etc. The whole thing was a pretty painless process.
