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

    Pros

    Great job opportunities, safety oriented, great pay

    Cons

    Not enough PTO, or sick leave. They work on a points system and they can build up quickly and don't drop off for an entire year.

    Advice to Management

    Please rethink the points system. It gives employees a lot of stress when they are trying to do their best.

    Pros

    The schedule, the employee discount, the profit sharing.

    Cons

    It is production so it can be tough at times. Stressful some days but most are not.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push those in order to get the most out of everyone.

    Pros

    Nice compensation with a decent benefits package. It was very easy work at the supervisor level. Paid overtime in this position, 3 or 4 day work week, profit sharing each quarter

    Cons

    Its a smaller company without much opportunity for upward mobility past the manager level. Its fairly common for somone to remain a supervisor for 15+ years.

    Advice to Management

    No thank you, im not on the payroll anymore

    Pros

    there are alot of changes going at the time and i can see that they are very positive, as long as we follow through with them. i also believe safety is one of the top priority of this company.

    Cons

    i believe that management with there college degree, thinks that they are smarter than those on the floor. they withhold alot of information., but i still like working there, but it is a factory life , so you just go with the flow.

    Advice to Management

    i am glad that (Mr Huffer) has taken back the leadership. it's a start to turn this company around again. He is one in management that i can trust.
