    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great training and awesome cowokers. I was only a temp, but I loved working with my fellow staff members. If I had questions or concerns, I was immediately given some guidance or insight. This is a great place to move upward, too, as the company is really growing.

    Cons

    From a temp employment perspective, none.

    Advice to Management

    My manager Corey was always on top of it--I have no advice to her. She works so hard and her team does, too.

    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.
