    I have been working at Milliken Millwork full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not very much positive I can think of. Free coffee, I get my own desk?

    Cons

    Not a great job, not a great company. My boss likes to stir things up. All my coworkers hate the boss, and as soon as he leaves every day (before everyone else naturally) everyone can't stop complaining about him. I mean, he is a bad boss but I don't need to hear about it every single day. I just want to do my job and go home. Then the boss likes to turn us all against each other. If someone is out for the day, everyone...

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to divide your employees. Upper management needs to control middle management, but they're all family so that'll never happen.

    Pros

    I have been working at Milliken Millwork for 5 months now and I must say I love working here. Everyone I work with is very kind. I am grateful to work for a company who really appreciates their employees! THE President/ C.E.O of the company is by far the most generous boss I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Right now I don't have any cons I am happy with how everything is going!

    Pros

    Milliken Millwork is a family owned company and you are treated with respect and kindness. If you work hard upper Management promotes you and you are given great opportunities from there. Good job is rewarded with yearly MVA, all employees receive a bonus, great pay and good benefits.

    Cons

    Terminated employees usually are the ones with the biggest complaints, that everything sucked and management sucks etc.. they are pissed because they were terminated. The biggest con is the location, many employees live far and STILL continue to work here .

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting good talent, keep pay competative and keep growing the company! Again, harsh reviews are more often than not from former employees that did not fit the bill for one reason or another and they can do nothing but complain and state negative comments.

    I have been working at Milliken Millwork full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Milliken Millwork has so much to offer for anyone who is ambitious and hard working. I came to this company with minimal experience and have been allowed to grow greatly in my position. The company is very accommodating, employees will never go without anything. Annual MVA bonus is an another wonderful perk offered to employees! The environment at MMI is very welcoming and there are no office politics. Managers & Directors...

    Cons

    The location is not close to home so the winter weather commute can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue treating employees in the same manner. Continue to be approachable and allow employees to discuss any issues with management as needed

    I worked at Milliken Millwork full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There was nothing positive about my experience at Milliken.

    Cons

    To say this place is toxic is an understatement. The way management acts is disturbing. Myself and others were constantly screamed at for things that weren't our fault. We could never do anything right, even when we followed instructions that were given by management. Employees were constantly pitted against one another for no reason. Most of the managers are family members/friends, so nothing is done about their behavior....

    Advice to Management

    You can start by respecting your employees and not treating them like garbage. Maybe then your employee turnover wouldn't be so high (and you wouldn't need to ask employees to write reviews) if you acted like decent human beings.

    I worked at Milliken Millwork full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They pay and benefits were decent. Made some friends.

    Cons

    I worked here for a couple years and recently found a new job. I still keep in contact with some of my coworkers from Milliken, and they were telling me how some of the management were asking employees to post good reviews on here, mention MVA and such. I thought that was hilarious because that's absolutely something the shady management at Milliken would do. They were always pulling stunts like that. I can't speak...

    Advice to Management

    Want good reviews? Want your employees and former employees to recommend you to other people? Want to lower your turnover dramatically? Try treating employees reasonably and decently. Work on building teams and bringing people together instead of splitting people off and letting office politics run rampant.
