    Great company to start your career. Plenty of benefits. Awesome mobility, I was able to move up into the career I wanted pretty quickly.

    If you want advancement in the company you need to do more then just work hard. Be the squeaky wheel!

    Advice to Management

    Cross train management in the beginning for a brief period. Then allow management to stay in their areas and specialize a bit more so employees don't feel as lost. Other then that pretty good management team.

    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was a great job. Talented people. Secure. Good pay and benefits. I had the ability there to contribute extensively in problem solving and improvements plant wide.

    Cons

    The con is we used to be Craftmaster Mfg. and we were purchased by Jeld-Wen. Jeld-Wen is home based in Klamath Falls Oregon. They terminated or drastically reduced the function and capacity of our engineering, HR, customer support and accounting departments. These functions were to be practiced at their corporate office. Jeld-Wen has many plants worldwide and all the plants are basically production and warehousing only. All admin and engineering functions are located in the corporate location.

    Advice to Management

    Our upper management was great. We were a proud and top notch company with an outstanding reputation as Craftmaster. The management and technical people all worked as a team.

    Pros

    Working at JELD-WEN was one of the greatest experiences of my life. They are more like a family than a business. I still keep in touch with many people working there years after leaving.

    Cons

    Klamath Falls is a hard place to live for a city slicker like myself.

    Advice to Management

    None.
