I worked at JELD-WEN full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible schedule, sales people are quality people with great personalities.

Cons

Very Poor Pay. Got one raise in 6 years, no bonuses or commission in "Sales" regardless of managing a 15+ Million dollar area. Crazy hours and travel at times. Doesn't matter if your good at your job or bad, you will get paid the same.

Advice to Management

You have great Sales people working for you, and some great managers. You are going to continue to lose good people if you don't show some sort of appreciation, or goodwill. The 35 dollar "Spiff" bonuses just aren't cutting it. Motivate your associates. There is NO incentive to want to succeed other than personal motivation. For a multi-billion dollar company you waste a lot of money on menial things, rather than taking care of the bread and butter of your income.

    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    it was a job just that

    Cons

    dont care about their people. Laid off 120 on Dec 16. There feelings were better you than me. Benefits stink, (they paid medical bills. Suggested you look up you sickness on webmd!) no raises, no bonuses NOTHING!

    Advice to Management

    all you care about is yourself, dont look at big picture as long as YOU have a job, forget the real world as working in the field.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers
    Decent benefits package
    Convenient for people with kids to take time off when they want
    Management seemed to not care if employees have a bad attitude

    Cons

    Didn't pay enough to cover the cost of a place to live in and utilities
    People with kids were free to take time off often for sick kids with no disciplinary action as a result of taking too much time off
    Management was there to collect a pay check and was generally incompetent

    Advice to Management

    Management could use actual management training. No one had actual experience doing their jobs, they had just worked for the company for a long time (or were men over 50).
