    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    My department was ready for me - the phone, computer, log ins were all set up. My manager wanted to make sure I had access to the programs I would be using, and that my passwords worked.

    Cons

    I was not previously aware of the overtime required at month end. Vacation days and time off requests might not be honored at month end - depending on staffing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open door policy.

    I worked at Milgard Manufacturing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are wonderful to work with, the wage is fair, the benefits are good. This company really cares about the employees and the community. They understand what investing in your people means.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work hard to keep up with customer demands. Turn over is high. They have many facilities across the U.S. so this one disadvantage I see to working at the facilities in Washington State is that marajuana is legal there so it's difficult to find candidates who can live up to the company's drug free workplace policy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. You guys are awesome.

    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing part-time (Less than a year)

    Milgard was a great start to my career. They believe in their employees while giving back to the community. The employees and managers worked well together to acheive the goals they had set.

    Cons

    While wanting to expand they did not have all the tools needed to do so.

    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Milgard is a really great company, home-grown in Tacoma, Washington, by an outstanding entrepreneur who was fond of saying he wasn't in the window business, but rather was in the "people business." This company lives up to that philosophy. The people are friendly, helpful, and welcoming. Compensation is good and bonus plan is generous!

    Cons

    I do not have any cons

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing as it is working; we're growing, we're leading the marketplace with new product innovation and service levels that out-pace our competitors.

    Compared to where I have worked in the past, very good team work. A sense of family and we are all in it together vs brutal corporate environment. Great people to work with.

    Difficult past few years with downturn in housing. Pay and benefits have taken a hit.
