    Pros

    Growth benefits pay locations people

    Cons

    Hours, takes to long to get people added

    Advice to Management

    They're to quick to hire outside vs looking at the folks they have. Applying confidentially internal is not possible.

    I have been working at Masonite International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    While the pay is not great it is decent for our area.
     401K is good.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from some supervisors to team leads and production crews.
    Benefit packages are expensive and the medical does not provide good coverage.
    Lack of follow through across the board.
    Useless corrective actions that are not realistic to the processes.

    Advice to Management

    Put an end to the God ole boys club. Focus on promoting talent from within the organization. Increase oversight of plant management; this lack of oversight has led to horrible work environments, bullying, grueling hours, cronyism, rampant favoritism and poor morale.

    I worked at Masonite International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent wages,good 401k plan.Has potential to be a great job,if certain things change.

    Cons

    Hands down without a question, management is a huge problem at the Kirkwood plant.They do and get away almost anything they want.Hours can be grueling at times.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to thoroughly investagate there managers.The way they run things and treat employees is morally,ethically and legally wrong.They're destroying that plant which has potential to be a great job.The employees at kirkwood will never truly give there all or strive for high quality performance at there position,with the managers in place.This is not a opinion it is a fact.I am not the only one to feel this way. Nearly all employees,former and current,share the same thoughts.
