Driver customer service (Former Employee), roseville, mn – July 30, 2015
Pros: fun people
you start off the day loading your truck for all the deliveries of the day, then you go deliver them all to nice clients. everyone you meet is pretty nice and the other workers are great people to work with. the hardest part is the hours in the summer where you don't get to see your family too much since your usually working pretty late but the pay check is worth is.

Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VA – November 6, 2014
Pros: treat clients to tours and dinners
A business within a business. From the time you open your eyes to the time I pulled in the driveway, building relationships in this world was exciting. From discerning the personality types and how to sell to each one was the challenge I needed..There is a psychology to selling on a professional basis. And then building upon that relationship was key to me being the top performer within my region. My co workers and I worked as a team. Blitzing each others regions for the benefit of that regions sales person when a new product was introduced to our company. There was not a hard part to this job. It was problem solving at its finest and succeeding Which is the best part of the job exceeding and succeeding
I worked for this company for almost 18 years. The company was bought and sold a few different times. I started out working for Reynolds Aluminum but in the end the company was eventually bought by Norandex.
Great working environment. I had to leave for family personal reasons.
The company was very strong in the exterior build products business until the collapse of the housing market when many companies faltered due to the economy.
Inside and outside sales/ Branch Operations Manager. Worked very close with management and and a large customer base.
Warehouse Lead (Former Employee), Moorhead, MN – March 24, 2014
Most of the day is spent preparing and loading eighteen wheeler trucks with bus assemblies for the next stage of manufacturing. Part of the day is reserved for inventory control and receiving. Over 60% of the day is spent on forklifts and stand-ups.
Delivery Driver/Laborer (Former Employee), Wichita, KS – January 22, 2014
Pros: the benefits
The job was very routine. I learned and nearly obtained my forklift certification. My co-workers were the best group of guys I've ever worked with. The hardest part about my job was the lack of organization and bad management. The best part of the job was the costumers I became friends with.
Sales (Current Employee), Cleveland Ohio – July 31, 2013
Same Exec Sales leadership for years and has dug us in a whole. Sales are so bad dont know how we keep afloat. Yet Execs get company cars and memberships to expensive golf courses. And of course the trips.
This company needs a good kick in the pants. No Sales and Marketing leadership. and our new CEO is only interested in golf.
Dont know how much longer i will have a job with this poorly run company.
Incapable executive team. No direction to employees
Field mgt (Current Employee), Ohio – June 29, 2013
Pros: free coffee. benefits.
Cons: executive team
With new CEO taking reigns company is going down hill. Wasting money on golf country club memberships and expensive meals. Sales are way down and continue to plunge. Desperately need new sales leader. Old one has been there to long with failure after failure.
I like the company but am so tired of poor leadership. I expect before too long I will lose my job when our branch closes due to not making moneys. So sad
customer service (Former Employee), OHIO – April 13, 2013
Pros: there are none anymore
Cons: this branch is losing money, and customers because the management is incompetent customers see this.
They hire people that don't have any experience in the building industry including management. They will smile at you all the while stabbing you in the back. This branch is being brought down by mismanagement. Customers don't like the new manager or the operations manager at all.Workers that been there for years have no advancement they hire people off the street that know less and put them in better positions
