    I have been working at Sauder Woodworking full-time

    Pros

    Not a bad place to work, pay isn't too bad, good co-workers. Big on work place safety.

    Cons

    crappy management, some supervisors tend to go on power trips or play favorites. Health insurance isn't great, $1500 deductible has to be met even for a simple doctor visit.

    I have been working at Sauder Woodworking full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    40 paid vacation, personal time, medical leave, 401k, health insurance, profit sharing, annual raises, guaranteed schedule (40 hrs, Monday-Friday 9a-5:30p), half hour unpaid lunch, two paid 15 minute breaks. The department truly gets along with no petty B.S. The hiring process is grueling, but because personality is weighted just as much as ability.

    Cons

    Tied to a desk with every moment, down to the second, of your 8 hours recorded and accounted for. Very little freedom. Very micromanaged. High stress due to not only an immediate need by the customer, but also high demand from management. It's award winning for a reason, but it's not for being an easy job. Call center work is not for everyone.

    I have been working at Sauder Woodworking full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company provides consistent full-time hours (40 per week), diversity recruitment, paid time off, & holiday pay. The work schedule is fairly consistent and revolves around a three shift schedule.

    Cons

    The general compensation rate is lower than the cost of living for the area (About $15 per hour), and there is not a lot of upward mobility within the company. Management tends to treat employees as an asset rather than as a valuable individual, and does little to provide for personnel enrichment and development. Most of the company policies are adhered to loosely, omitted, or exist orally only. The company struggles to achieve profitability year after year, often having a profit margin of less than 3 percent annually.

    I worked at Sauder Woodworking full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Start out pay and benefits are good now.

    Cons

    If you have worked there before they raised the start out pay then new employees are walking in the door making what it took you years to make.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to the employees that's been working for you for years.

    Pros

    From the top down, people who work at Sauder woodworking care about others. Stewardship and integrity are ingrained in the culture.

    Cons

    Sauder is an older company with an aging work force. The majority of people have over 18 years with the company, so people can be stuck in their ways.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs clearer career paths for those looking to move up.
