It was a fun job to have.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Rantoul, ILDecember 13, 2017
JELD-WEN was a great job to have. I would tell friends to work there they help you out a lot. They teach you new things that you would use in your everyday life.
Pros
Hard working people around you.
Cons
The work hours.

Good company to work for
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Klamath Falls, ORDecember 8, 2017
This is a good company to work for, especially if you are mobile and willing to adapt to the companies changing culture/geography. The company became public in the past year, and is still working out overall corporate structure.

Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) –  Grinnell, IADecember 7, 2017
I was a customer service representative there, I enjoyed the work place. Management has it's pros and cons. Hardest part of the job was not having good training, which I think maybe they should look into the trainer.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
short notice of job ending

Don’t like this place
Interior Specialist (Former Employee) –  Etna, OHDecember 5, 2017
Hated this place. Management wasn’t great and all they cared about was money and numbers. Did not really care about workers at all. The pay is great but I like to be treated like I’m valued rather than expendable.

hot long work days with some decent people
Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Mount Vernon, OHNovember 25, 2017
i learned how to do my job but it can be very stressful on the body and there is usually mandatory overtime so if you don't work hard enough you will have to stay over. there are good people to work with but management can be rude. some co-workers can be extremely rude or lazy.The best part of my work day was lunch and leaving.
Pros
good pay of what you work
Cons
2 or 3 ten minute breaks and a thirty minute lunch

Jeld-Wen Review
Assembler (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MINovember 24, 2017
The culture here is not good. They claim to care about lean, but the facility feels like 1990. The software is extremely outdated and inefficient. They use paper copies for everything, nothing is digital. They do not care about waste... seems like everything gets thrown away. The communication here is very poor. Huge disconnect between front office management and supervisors, and supervisors to hourly employees. Salary is high, but you work a lot of hours for it.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Culture, outdated company

Long hours, keep taking away benefits
Group Manager (Former Employee) –  Bend, ORNovember 20, 2017
The promises made during hiring process never happen. For the past decade they continue to pile on work to middle management without compensation. They actually have paid less and removed any chance at getting a bonus. The only person that can receive a bonus is the GM, there is no real possibility for promotions.
Pros
good PTO if you've worked there 10+ years
Cons
long hours, weekends, no bonus program, no advancement

Regional Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCNovember 19, 2017
Just handled THD problems. Late JW orders. JW wanted everything to work out but the issues with the door plants caused major problems for everyone. JW always sent issues downward to have them fixed.

Builder/Laborer (Current Employee) –  Pottsville, PANovember 15, 2017
Long days and very fast paced. There is lots of room to improve your career. The PTO hours you earn are nice up to 120 hours your first year. Most places don't even give 5 your first year.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Not alot of balance to enjoy your life outside of Jeld-Wen

Working here is okay..
Sawyer (Current Employee) –  Grinnell, IANovember 2, 2017
If your willing to work hard.. and put in the hours. Then this job is for you! You make a lot of money but work a lot of hours! Pay is great! But it gets fusterating trying to make sure you have everything done that needs to be done when no one really communicates until the last moment... be prepared for horrible mannered people.. and a lot of Mexicans (no I’m not racist, but when about everyone doesn’t speak English when you work in an English environment.. and they are super rude have no manners ect)
Pros
Free safety meals
Cons
Poor management

Pros
Adequate pay
Cons
stressful and limited advancement

Always have something to do making long days fly by.
Glass Cutter (Former Employee) –  Stayton, OROctober 27, 2017
Great place to work. You are very thoroughly trained before being put on your own and the benefits are great. 12 hours a day seems rough but the most days in a row worked is only 3 and you get a 3 day weekend every pay period and you wouldn't be able to tell with how much you take home. People are friendly and never mind helping you out. The management is great, theyre always updating you about the agenda of the week; as soon as they know, you know which helps a lot with the stress levels from being such a fast paced job.
Pros
Friendly staff and managers
Cons
Long periods between breaks and long work days.
