I worked at JELD-WEN full-time

Pros

Its a stretch to say that there were any pros working at jeldwen, other than the factory had good lighting.

Cons

Everything, the management was good, the work was boring and repetitive, you have to deal with lots of temps constantly coming in and out. Also some times you have to deal with multiple managers at the same time and they expect you to complete workloads equivalent to 3 people. If you show that your capable you will get exploited..

Advice to Management

Hire people with morals and brains.

    I have been working at JELD-WEN full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    pay is fair for simple jobs, but raises are unheard of.

    Cons

    if top management does not feel you are a team player its over for you. I have not spent any quality time with my wife or kids in months!!!

    Advice to Management

    be more willing to listen and value employees. balance the need to produce products and have a family life too

    Pros

    Lots of responsibility, good beginner job.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up from Group Manager, hours are quite long and included weekends. Be ready to move around the country if you want to keep advancing.

    Advice to Management

    Pay managment more. Listen to manager's preference for location. I know of two good managers in my short time there that left because management was inflexible about location.
