    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Universal Forest Products full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Competitive pay and safety oriented. Offers as many hours as you can work. Great benefits package and insurance. Very easy work just laborious.

    Cons

    Poor management communication. Working in outside in the elements, if it rained the place would flood with water up to your knees almost and you had to stay working.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to communicate better with their employees and actually listen to the things that would make the work environment a better place.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Universal Forest Products

    Pros

    The company has great benefits. The location I am familiar with is pretty relaxed in a lot of ways.

    Cons

    They lied about the bonuses and raises. Two years and an insult of a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Value your people. The people in the trenches make your company what it is.

    I have been working at Universal Forest Products full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits (medical/dental/vision); opportunity to move to different plants in different states; my plant management is fair and don't micro-management; company is big on bonus than salary (for salaried-supervisor employees); Great company culture; Management will not hold you back from moving up; After hours company events are fun;

    Cons

    Office/Corporate politics like any other company - you must "get around" and not rely on your added value and good work ethic; Management job postings (internal) are only posted for courtesy - those positions are already filled; Hourly employees have a "point system" so you can get penalized for being 1 minute late and not showing up to work; Vacation is not the best when compared to most companies - only 5 days for the...

    Advice to Management

    See the Cons. A better salary/wage compensation would be great.
