Comfortable, relaxed place to work; good work environment; fair pay for fair effort; good benefits; long-term benefits are first-rate

Owned and operated by one or two people, so subject to fits of whim and fancy by those individuals; Current economic condition has led to multiple layoffs, terminations, reduction in work hours and salaries

Make a stronger effort to retain valuable employees in these economic hard times; be more cautious in acquiring other companies; place a higher value on employees

    Pros

    It is a good company that takes pretty good care of their employees. The management at the plant level was good to work with and all worked pretty well together. When I was there everyone wanted to do a good job and everyone worked pretty well together to accomplish the overall goals of the plant.

    Cons

    Working in a factory gets a little monotonous. The extreme heat and cold temperatures make it uncomfortable in the winter and the summer months. Being a private company we were left out of the loop on a lot of information that we would have been notified of if the company was public and had to disclose.

    Advice to Management

    Be More Open With Information About The Company.

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

    Pros

    There were none that I found

    Cons

    The management is poor, employees are treated like cannon fodder with no respect show unless you're face fits. I have seen appalling health and safety breaches including the over turning of a side loader moving a machine out of the factory on the orders of a group manager. I have seen employees working machines full of shavings and dust because the extraction was not adequate, hazardous to health. As previously mentioned some managers are aggressive, employees being told if you don't like it get out. Very very poor company to work for. Dickensian

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees they are human beings, although I know you won't.
