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

Cons

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 8 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Enjoyed the type of work and was always learning new things - programs and information on the new products.

    Cons

    It is unfortunate that the Ottawa office in the west end closed and jobs were now being done in other locations.
