    I have been working at American Woodmark full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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 have been working at American Woodmark full-time

    Pros

    The training I received upon starting my job was detailed and very helpful.

    Cons

    The training involved a lot of PowerPoint slides.

    Advice to Management

    Have the internal sales people talk before the customer sales to prevent the feeling of hearing the same information twice.

    I worked at American Woodmark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working from a home office with the chance to grow your business in your geographic area. Minimally supervised, so you run your business as you see fit. Bonus available by meeting sales goals

    Cons

    Not much room for growth and raises are very slim. Not meeting sales goals will keep you stagnant in your position.

    Advice to Management

    Good company culture but not an open door policy with mid-level management. Not enough recognition for hard work and growth.

    I worked at American Woodmark full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great employee development. Lots of growth opportunity. Good culture. Good collaboration across the company. Generous relocation benefits. Great cross company leadership development.

    Cons

    Smaller towns make it hard for signicant other to find meaningful employment. Everybody knows everyone everywhere you go.
    Stringent policies make it difficult for good employees. Benefits aren't great for line level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Bring processes into the 21st century. A lot of home grown systems and manual systems made for time spent on transactional work vs utilizing tools to make a better work experience. Increase benefits such as the vacation time policy and pay ranges for line employees. They are the heart of the company.

    Pros

    Laid back, great work environment, allow for independent and creative solutions. Management listens to you, group and small team set up is nice.

    Cons

    Technologically slow. Management may listen, but applies only to top tier agenda for major changes. Systems are modified with band-aids instead of large system overhauls.

    Advancement is not always based on skills and management is not really hands and doesnt judge fairly

    Sit in the office less and evaluate your employees yourself and not based on what the ones you favor have to say. Very biased
