Worst company to work for!
Super Service Representative (Former Employee), Vacaville, CAOctober 6, 2014
Pros: local company
Cons: everything
no opportunities for advancement and management is a complete joke. There is HR on sight but they barely know the laws in California. This company almost operates like a fly by night company. I would only work here if I couldn't get a job in fast food or retail. The pay is decent but all money isn't good money. Avoid Simonton if you can!!!

Group Leader/Trainer (Former Employee), Lyons, GAAugust 19, 2014
Pros: hands on learning, fun and challenging.
Cons: lyons plant shut down.
For me a typical day was productive and enjoyable. I learned how to cut and assemble good quality aluminum storm windows and doors. The management was always available and helpful when needed. My co-workers were hardworking, loyal, and good spirited. The hardest part of the job was keeping the frames from getting scratched. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my co-workers and seeing the final production count at the end of the day.

Acceptable employer
Quality Control Secretary (Former Employee), Paris, ILAugust 22, 2013
Pros: the employees and benefits
Cons: the number of managers
Simonton Windows is an acceptable employer. The employees were good, the factory was clean and a good work environment, but there were too many managers overseeing the daily production.

I left this position for a better paying position.

Production Worker (Current Employee), Ellenboro, WVJune 23, 2013
Pros: good hours, good benefits
Cons: discrepancies between the amount of work each individual has day to day
A large factory of workers that come together to make all the components of a large volume of windows daily. Job rotation gets everyone experience in a number of stations in the production process. We work safely and effectively to meet quotas and production. Our motto is, "Quality. On Time. Complete."
