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 Even the tech systems were outdated and everything was mostly manual.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.

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.
Assmebler (Former Employee) – Dubuque, IA – June 20, 2018
They treat their employees fairly well. Although they don't allow you to have a life outside of the company. I always felt like I was taking my work home with me when I wasn't even in a leadership position. Little concern for less senior employees when something comes up with children durring work hour and you would have to leave. Not a company I would go back to.
Paint Line Operator (Former Employee) – Menomonie, WI – June 6, 2018
I was only there for a short time but I really enjoyed it. The people were nice and helpful, I caught on to things very quickly. A lot of us got laid-off in February for a short time. I had foot surgery and couldn't return when they called me back in after 3 weeks. I was laid up at home for around 8 weeks and just didn't return after that.
I remember being able to wear shorts there anytime but you had to have steel toe shoes or boots. It was air conditioned too but since I was there from Nov to Feb, I didn't get to experience it.
Very nice and clean break room and bathrooms, people were very nice and management was great
Got laid off due to lack of work and having to go through a temp agency
