Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – July 17, 2016
A typical day at work was just getting there on time and getting the job done for the day. I would learn a lot everyday because my manager would rotate me a lot with different positions. The management team was very cool and relaxing didn't hound everyone much. There really wasn't a hard day really just get the job done. The co workers there were like family really no one argued or ever disagreed really. The most enjoyable part was that everyone loved one another and got the job done everyday.
Door mechanic (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – June 1, 2016
It was an awesome job, I enjoyed the work a lot, My co workers were a great group of people. I was able to pick up a huge range of new skills such as welding, fabricating, mechanical skills ect. The hours were a bit hectic, but i personally did not mind that. The one and only downfall was my division manager, he had short man syndrome, it was always his way or no way, he did not really understand the commercial side of things so he created a lot of extra work, and he constantly ticked off customers on the phone, which we had to deal with on site. Every time the smallest thing went wrong he would throw a fit like a 3 year old, he just did not belong in his position. He ultimately made our best guys leave which created a back up of work and added more tension until i finally left. If not for him id certainly still be employed there.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Grand Island, NE – May 20, 2016
Overhead Door was a great place to work at, they always tried their best to make sure their employees feel appreciated. Main concern is safety, fast paced environment, group leaders try to help but some only actually care about teammates.
Very organized company, a pleasure to work for them
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – February 8, 2016
Everyday is different. Sometimes its a challenge, but I am always up for this. I respond to the emails and messages that come in over night and take care of those first thing. Answer phones and take customer service calls. Enter them in the system and ensure they are scheduled. Prepare orders for invoicing. Fax, scan, file, I always find something to do. I have learned how to manage my time and prioritize my work. I truly enjoy everyone I work with as we can have fun and yet get the job done. Hardest part is unsatisfied customers, but we always manage to take care of the situation. I look forward to going to work and that sense of satisfaction when I can help our customers.
Door Technician (Current Employee) – Knoxville, TN – February 2, 2016
Overhead Door challenges you every day with the multiple installs and service calls. Abilities are continually tested with the need of being able to" think on the fly" when you run into problems. The employees are quick to welcome new people and welcome the opportunity to teach. Management is quick to commend a job well done while offering more responsibility to those who want it. Solving an unforeseen problem is one of the many rewards of the job.
Installer (Former Employee) – Berwick, PA – May 6, 2016
typical day at work is getting your order ready for the day. usually can get about 3 garage doors rails and motors installed and ready to use before we leave. the most enjoyable part of the day is seeing the satisfication on peoples faces.
Commercial Install Helper (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – September 23, 2015
I enjoyed my time at Overhead Door, and would always be willing to go back. The atmosphere and work environment that was provided, is not something you find at most places. You have respect from day one.
Call Center Representative (Current Employee) – Lewisville, TX – October 7, 2013
Typical day at work, answering the phone from 10am-7pm. Helping customers programming devices to their garage door openers. Also troubleshooting units to find out what the problem is when customers have trouble with their openers. Very friendly & understanding management and supervisors. Co-workers are very helpful and friendly. Hardest part of the job would just be the hours. Working until 7:00pm but, having to stay past if there are calls in the que. Sometimes having to stay until 7:30+. Most enjoyable part of the job, would be getting paid every week.
hour lunches/paid weekly
open on weekends/ working until 7pm on week days /
Residential Installer (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – May 24, 2012
In the interview I was told the position I was applying for would pay $13 hourly for the first 90 days of training then would go up after that into peace work averaging $20-$24 hourly. Once I received my first pay check it said I was making $12hourly. When I asked about this problem I was told I must have misunderstood despite the fact that I wrote all the information down. After 90 days I asked about my "raise" I was then told it was after 180 days. After 180 days they fired me. 3 of us were hired on the same day and all 3 of us were told the same thing. None of us were paid what we were told. I don't know if they were "let go".
Getting up in the mornings and not having a feeling of dread about going to work!
shipping clerk (Former Employee) – Shelbyville, IN – March 28, 2013
This company genuinely cared about its employees! It was a great place to work.The management was fantastic! Employees had great attitudes.We worked in a family type environment.The relationship with top management was on a level where you really felt they cared!
just felt really good about going to work each day!
wished the pay was more-but stayed because everything else was great
Ultimately a nice place to work, not very many opportunities to advance.
Lewisville (Current Employee) – Customer Service Technician – November 5, 2011
Like every job there are pros and cons. The pay is decent but after you are finished with your training that is pretty much it. Advancement is close to none including pay. The overall job itself is good, they train you well you have all the material you need to do the job and find the answers.
flexible schedules, great training, and management
installer/ repair (Former Employee) – Garden City, KS – September 11, 2013
Traveled to various places to install or repair garage doors. Sometimes doors were destroyed by storms, it was very interesting work that involved great attention to detail. You would be surprised why some doors weren't functioning properly. Sometimes an easy fix, and others not so easy
Senior Customer Service Technician (Former Employee) – Lewisville, TX – February 17, 2013
Micromangement squeezed every minute out of most employees for an above average wage. From the moment an employee clocks in to the second their scheduled time is over (and many times after) we were working, except when the phone lines went down.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Garden City, KS – October 29, 2013
Everyday was something different and a good challenge.I learned a lot about garage doors. Management is average and crew was good. The hardest part of the job is to lift the heavy commercial door springs. The best part is when the job is completed.
