Good Benefits/Not reliable
Frame Preparation Assembly (Current Employee) – Warroad, MN – April 25, 2012
A typical day at Marvin Windows and Doors depending on which department could either be busy or slow. Generally, for most of the year, the plant is rather slow--the work varies day by day. Some days you have the option to go home early without pay and some days you could be asked to stay late. Usually there are about 32 hours in a work week. The benefits are excellent, especially in this type of economy. They offer 401k, life insurance, health insurance, dental, vision, braces for children up to 19 years of age, scholarships for school, and short term and long term disability.
I've learned many jobs at this plant. I've learned to work hard and how to improve the quality of the products. I've also learned that working hard sometimes does not pay off.
Management seems to be a bit slow on common sense and organization but do have nice personalities.
Many co-workers are lazy and get away with being that way. But many other co-workers are very hard working and strive to achieve and succeed but no longer care to be this way due to the lazy co-workers.
The hardest part of the job probably is learning within minutes without help in certain circumstances (rare).
The most enjoyable part of the job is working with fun, kind, and funny people.
