    I worked at Milgard Manufacturing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They payed a large part of the medical benefits.

    Cons

    Milgard was a family run company that forgot that it sold itself to a huge conglomerate (Masco). Management at the Temecula branch is/was too willing to sell outside of established guidelines. This caused huge headaches when sales would say no and follow procedure.

    Pros

    Great benefits and profit share. People treat one another very kindly and with respect.

    Cons

    One minute late and you're written up. Being sick with no sick days counts against you. Six times on any attendance policy infraction and you're out, no matter what. Overtime is mandatory at times, an hour everyday and half Saturday.

    Advice to Management

    The attendance policy is demoralizing.

    Pros

    The people here are easy to work with and the training never stops. Everyone has something they can teach you about every aspect of the company.

    Cons

    It can be a little overwhelming trying to learn the jargon, especially if your new to the field. Learning the background behind what’s done to make these doors and windows is a little extensive.

    Advice to Management

    Setup designated training with actual trainers who have the time to actually train new and existing employees.

    May 14, 2018 – Manager, Recruiting and Talent Management

    We do tend to have some inside language, don't we? The products themselves have a certain level of complexity and there is a learning curve. We do have designated trainers in each location and we... More

    Pros

    Milgard is a fast paced environment that offers plenty of opportunity for both personal and professional growth. They are a rewarding company to work for and quite honestly I couldn't see myself anywhere else!

    Cons

    These would depend on the person; as mentioned it's a fast paced environment with plenty to do (you'll never be staring at the clock willing it to move faster). I understand this isn't for everyone, but if you are one that enjoys this type of environment this would be a perfect fit for you!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take care of employees and foster a culture that promotes a safe environment, growth and opportunity.

    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive wage, cool people to work with.

    Cons

    Work has been so slow for months, it is hard to get by now. They are hiring new people left and right which makes it hard to get hours in an already slow environment. Growth is based on how much the supervisor likes you, not on your work ethic. I used to love my job, they are very nice to new employees but older employees must watch poor management and little incentive to stay at the job. High turn over rate due to above statements. They wonder why people leave. Here is the answer.

    Advice to Management

    Give everyone a fair chance, and notice work ethic. Give people full time as they sign up for. No excuse otherwise for older employees to not get 80 hour paychecks.
