Manufacturing (Current Employee) – MN – January 14, 2019
The company has taken a serious nose dive in its treatment of long term employees and doesn't compensate competitively for its factory labor like it once did. Benefits are nothing to talk about. They act like any other publicly traded corporate giant even though they are still a privately held "family" company and use there corporate charity donations as a "hey look at how well we treat the community" billboard while they truly care little for its own workforce.
Lots of dedicated friendly coworkers and average compensation
Andersen Windows & Doors In-House Temp (Former Employee) – Dubuque, IA – January 7, 2019
The company or production unit has undergone improvements with Andersen Window & Door from previous Eagle Window & Door. Still work has problems and complications of its own, but conditions are better in current location than previous...
Marketing (Current Employee) – Bayport, MN – January 2, 2019
Great company, great people, excellent culture. Lots of opportunities, open to new ideas, a good mix of long time employees and new incoming employees. They care about their employees and their well being, including work-life balance. Leadership is great. And like all companies, they evolve to improve weaknesses and continue strengths
Loader (Former Employee) – Menomonie, WI – December 21, 2018
Overall Andersen windows and doors wasn't a bad place to work if you like a lot of unplanned and mandatory overtime especiallyon the weekends if you are thinking about working there plan on working 40 weekends in a row

Team Leader (Former Employee) – Cottage Grove, MN – November 6, 2018
as lower management employee you have to carry everybody the ones under you and the ones above you higher management lacks of experience even whit managing people seems like they are just hiring people to fill holes HR leaves a lot to think about it even if you are been treated poorly and disrespectful they wont help. personal time yeah right during the busy season you have to forget about your personal life. the pay rate as an entry label individual is a good pay rate but once you hit lower management you make very few cents more than a top pay operator but you have an incredible amount of responsibilities not only with the people you lead and your own time but everybody else. the worse part is that if you want a rise you have to beg for a 1 to 3 %
Manufacturing Engineering Support (Former Employee) – Menomonie, WI – November 6, 2018
Great Engineering Team, new innovative ideas and opportunities to spec new machines and value streams. Team has members with great experience from being with the company for so long and also good guided paths for learning.
Return to Work Coordinator (Former Employee) – North Brunswick, NJ – October 23, 2018
I worked in a division of Andersen known as SilverLine and compensation did not align with the cost of living on the east coast especially in NJ. In addition, there was no room for growth in the position I was in. My team was amazing and the culture was fast paced and lively but very old school. Even the tech systems were outdated and everything was mostly manual.
ROUTE DELIVERY DRIVER (Former Employee) – West Columbia, SC – September 18, 2018
As a retiree with over 30 years in the transportation industry, I can tell you this is a well established company with some of the hardest workers. Unfortunately, it is supported with college degreed individuals trying to run a Logistics department with little or absolutely no Logistics experience. Who suffers? The customers and employees that made the company. As recent acquisitions and the sell off of its vinyl division, it has compounded the confusion beyond any normal description. I felt like I was chasing my tail every delivery. Drivers bumping into each other at the same customers on a weekly basis. So sad. I really loved this job, the previous management and especially the customers I faithfully served for 14 years.
Lots of overtime. Newer equipment.
Poorly trained Logistics managers. Too many chiefs.
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Dubuque, IA – August 16, 2018
The company is very good at giving back to the communities in which they are located. Strongly encourages employees to give back in one way or another. Employees are kept informed of events, awards the company has received, and successes of different work sites via intranet communications. Fast-pass environment.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Marion, OH – August 15, 2018

Supervisor (Current Employee) – Bayport, MN – July 26, 2018
If you have not been with this company for 20 plus years, there is no opportunity and your job is in jeopordy every day. All it takes is for one 30 plus year employee to not like you and they will find a way to get you fired. Not fun going to work looking over your shoulder on a daily basis
Extrusion Operator (Current Employee) – North Branch, MN – July 17, 2018
Andersen Windows is a company that claims to care for each individual employee. However, that is not the case. Andersen does not care about the extrusion line operators and are unwilling to work with them when issues arise in their personal lives. The schedule is the only good thing about working at Andersen. The starting wage isn't terrible but could be better for the stress you deal with on a regular basis at work. The days are long and boring and the people working are always crabby or stressed out.
