    Pros

    I have been with Champion for 21 years now. We have been through a lot of changes over the years I finally feel like the company is moving in a positive direction. The people here are great to work with and corporate helps us at the local level when we need it and stays out of our way the rest of the time.

    Cons

    We have had a lot of change over the past 5 years. It only seems like a con because everyone hates change but looking back it was for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being open and direct with us about what we are doing moving forward and why we are doing it.

    There is a team environment here that encourages a strong sense of responsibility to the company, product and customer. The management team strives to help and succeed and knows if one department is successful we'll all be successful. Excellent benefits and always opportunities for training.

    You won't find a better company full of people who genuinely look out for each other. It's almost unheard of how well my co-workers get along and work together. And there's always opportunities to learn something new!

    Sometimes the wi-fi is finicky, but never disruptive.

    Pros

    They really have the best product in the industry .. Best glass & best warranty by far .. So you can believe in what you are selling. Now that I've seen it, I wouldn't spend the $ on anything less in my own house. Excellent compensation plan. If you can sell an excellent product, you can make a lot of $ here. Great team to work with as well. Everybody willing to help you.

    Cons

    Need to be willing to receive your schedule on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the strong work and support!

    I worked at Champion Window full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great people willing to help
    Very nice, smart, and personable CFO with a vision
    Retail closing manager very smart and hard working.
    processes more uniform.
    fair pay, though other benefits need improvement

    Cons

    At times during close can be highly stressful with excess OT required and no comp time during slow period when not closing.
    no sick time
     Although Retail closing manager is very smart and hard working.she is not the best manager (talks about other employees and has limited people skills).

    Advice to Management

    review and modify PTO policy . consider giving sick time and some sort of comp time when closing OT gets excessive.
    develop some sort of training plan for new hires so that they don't struggle unnecessarily.
    oh yeah.....and it costs nothing to say "thanks for your hard work" to employees..
