Trade Sales and Acquisition (Promotion) (Current Employee) – Springfield, VA – August 2, 2015
i work with some of the best people you could ask. i work with some contractors and architects. the management team is a strong team with great training and mentor ship. the hardest part of the job is getting a no and keep going to build a positive relationship with customers. the best part of my job is it makes you feel fulfilled at the end of the day.
Lack or management 1specific site. Overall company is great!
Quality Technician (Current Employee) – Macomb, IL – December 6, 2017
The site that i work at has a management problem where no-one is held accountable and the employees bonus structure is absolutely terrible. The employees and coordinators keep the site afloat and keep everything going.
Good coworkers, excellent teamwork culture, room for improvement
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – November 29, 2017
I quickly took to the training I received at Pella and achieved several raises and opportunities as I worked there. I was trained on multiple positions on a single manufacturing line before they moved me to other lines to learn even more. I was even offered an installation position once that never led anywhere.
Many benefits, good wages, plenty of vacation
Sometimes the work can get too fast paced to keep up with, coworkers frequently became quick to anger

Pella is always ready to lend a helping hand to any groups or organizations. Every year they raise money for JDRF. They do the Teacher of the month, and we also raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness. the last couple of years we've also raised money to help the Macomb animal shelter.
This is a great place to work if you are a self-starter looking to build a clientele and put in the work to be successful. You will need to be self-motivated with a thick skin and the ability to put in the time and effort needed to make a good living.
Line Operator (Former Employee) – Story City, IA – March 8, 2017
8 hours shifts working in team building like crazy fairy fast paced get to switch jobs every couple hours the more you choose to learn the more you can bounce around a keep it interesting. They try to keep there people happy but everyone needs different things. I spent a long time working with them and enjoyed 85% percent of it which is way more than alot of other places.
Window Installer (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – December 12, 2016
- a typical day at work consisted of either removing old windows or cutting holes for new ones, then installing Pella windows - i learned the differences between the types of windows we install and how to properly install them - my management was great, when we would get a window with a defect in it. they would send someone from Pella immediately to fix the problem. my co-workers were also great to work with. - the hardest part of my job was working on a small plank 2 stories off the ground taking an old window out. - the most enjoyable part was when i was finsihed with the job and i could look at what i learned and how well i did it.
