Accounts Receivable Specialist, II (Former Employee) – Oak Park Heights, MN – December 26, 2017
typical large company lacking benefits of coffee. Here you are just a number. prepare to put in lots of hours and lots of effort to get a look from management, also prepare for a roller coaster or demands from management as well as a stacked work-load. great place to blend in if you want to be a sheep.
Temp Worker (Former Employee) – Menomonie, WI – February 8, 2018
The company is an excellent company to work for. many benefits offered. managers and supervisors always on the floor so if any issue it was able to be talked about immediately. schedule didn't change and if any change we were notified at first time available.
I worked at the Bayport location. They don't have AC and it was very hot working there but the paycheck was worth it. Even tho I was only there for the summer it gave me the experience needed for other manufacturing jobs.
Experience, good summer job for college students
Alternating schedule, maditory overtime, no AC, seasonal
This place is very unorganized and messy and with too much gossiping and no consequences for poor perfomance
Process Technician (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – January 10, 2018
This was literally the worst job i've ever had in life. Management has no clue whats going on in the company. The people who are tasked with leading are not skilled in any role they are in charge of and play petty games with each other and other employees if you value your sanity. Stay far away from this place
IT Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Bayport, MN – January 2, 2018
A wonderful company full of wonderful people. There was definitely a sense of community there unlike any other place I've been. Every office employee had a Herman Miller Aeron chair, and the management cares about its employees.
They reward you as a production worker given you stay out of the drama allot of people stir up, have good attendance, work hard, willingness to cross train, and fill out all your paper work. They love safety conscious employees and quality conscious employees. I was given opportunities to advance in a short amount of time. I recommend this employer to anyone who wants a career and who actually cares about the work they perform.
Hiring was not handled how it was explained at the time of hire.
Pre-finish (Former Employee) – Dubuque, IA – November 23, 2017
The job was very stressful from the very first day. Co workers we're very very rude and very pushy. They told me after my 90 days i would get benifits. After working there 6 months i was still a temp with no benifits. My supervisor was more like a drill sergeant than a supervisor. I felt like i was in boot camp. I dreaded going there everyday. I just had to finally quite one day. Was tired of being told everything i was doing wrong and never told i was doing anyrhing right.some of the coworkers were the worst people i have ever worked with.
Just use you as temps . No benifits, pto, or pay increase.
Huge focus on building a community within employees at the Bayport window plant. Even greater focus on improving each operation within the plant. Large focus on safety, environment, and employee welfare.
Corporate oversight micromanages every aspect of job
Operations Supervisor, Shiping (Former Employee) – Marion Ohio – November 4, 2017
As the third shift operations supervisor, I was strangled by my operations manager. My ideas were well received however without approval from corporate, nothing could be integrated. Managers without actual experience were capable of making decisions for the manufacturing floor when they had no clue of the real world results would look like. It was a world of "educated guesses", not experience.
My loaders on the dock were expected to load more than was really fair. I've seen them work 60+ hours a week and there was little gratitude for their efforts.
As an actual supervisor, I was treated like gold. I went on numerous trips to facilities and training in Chicago, Michigan, Atlanta, Texas, and Virginia. I was treated well and would take the job again if I was ever looking.
Great Pay, flexable time off, travel, and tone of respect from other managers and supervisors
Stacker/Operator (Former Employee) – North Branch, MN – November 3, 2017
I did not like working for Andersen Windows, they were very mean and didn't want to teach. I was constantly being yelled at and picked on because I wasn't doing the job properly even though thats how they showed me.
