Mismanaged and lack of identifiable chain of command, which unqualified supervisor's create an atmosphere lacking managerial work ethic and morale
Working at Jeld-Wen Ringtown for nearly 2 months proved to be the biggest disappointment in the 10 years I worked in a factory setting. First off the interview is conducted by factory higher ups who if are interested in the worker will "talk-up" their company to no end, which will later prove regurgitation would of been better to have come out of their mouths for that long.
When they talk about department heads, line leads, supervisors, etc., they are talking about those on the floor who do nothing to help the employees they expect so much out of for so little. Incentive is not in existence because they will never set a goal possible for reaching, nor will any managers that oversee their floor staff has professional work ethics. It is great to give young people a chance at supervising position, but not when they know nothing about manager positions. The department was unsafe, people on phones when they were supposed to be taking windows off of worker next to them, jumping around line jobs and just causing chaos for the new worker.
It was a very miserable and pathetic excuse for a work environment, no manager with real credentials would consider Ringtown, PA's Jeld-Wen a place that has any possible laborer respect.
