vinyl welder (Former Employee) – Stayton, OR – August 12, 2018
The company is not a place I would send friends to get a job at. The coworkers are great people. I would only go back to work there because of the people I worked with. The company is a joke and so is the product they put out.
Die form crew worker (Former Employee) – Towanda, PA – August 4, 2018
The management was terrible, they payed well but in return hired less people causing mandatory overtime to be put on you more often than you would like, often stopping you walking out the door to tell you that you must stay for 4 extra hours.
driver (Former Employee) – Yakima, WA – July 27, 2018
The poorest place I have ever worked managmeent is arrogant and filled with some kind of megomaniac personality that makes him all seeing and all knowing. Most of the workers there look like they just got out of prison the quilaity of service is poor on a good day
Group manager (Former Employee) – Oceanside, CA – July 26, 2018
The Jeld Wen facility in Oceanside is the one with probably the lowest employee retention I ever seen. The job culture is very agressive with majority of employees, even with their supervisors. Management has a "point finger" style and favoritism. They over pass a lot of errors from some employees but attack and "prosecute" other employees with minimal errors. A lot of terminations every month. I never seen so many people leaving from a company. Some people are even forced to quit. It's better to think twice before deciding to work on this company. Don't let be impressed by a nice building.
When I worked at jeld wen it was obvious from the start who the managers favored, they were never present and would only seem to want to talk to a certain few guys. Also it didnt seem like they wanted to teach anything, and would get mad and be rude if you didnt understand right away. There is a Job bidding system, but its a joke because if you dont befriend the manager you dont win bids. Most of the guys have the worst attitude ive ever seen and dont wanna work there..most of them are waiting for a better job.
Manager (Former Employee) – Plymouth, IN – July 24, 2018
The day typically starts off seen what the objective is and then engaging with the hourly about what the objective for the day is. After the day has started there is a meeting with senior leaders to make sure everyone is on the same track. I enjoy working with the people to let them know I'm with them from the start to the finish, so we can all feel good about what we accomplished at the end of the day.
Interior door manufacturer (Current Employee) – Rantoul, IL – July 23, 2018
Overall Good company to work for. The Point system is hard to get adjusted to too, so we are always short staff. They let you learn all the jobs on the line and you can test and advance yearly. They offer health insurance, 401 k., vacation time, personal time. Management has a high turn over. My greatest challenge is my drive time to and from work.
Assebler/Welder (Former Employee) – Grinnell, IA – July 19, 2018
Decent pay, but management and up, are terrible. Expectations are set too high and you are automatically set up to fail. Management excepts you to make up for downtime when machines break down, and if you don't you get blamed. Also expected to work overtime to meet goals that are outrages.
It’s a good place to work. You can grow and they have really good benefits
PRODUCTION ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Vista, CA – July 16, 2018
I loved working here. It took a lot of my skills and put them all to the test. It’s competitive, but not too crazy. There was free safety lunches and all kinds of things they were trying to improve on. The one in vista, I think, is kinda going through a rebuild with management. Once that’s all figured out I am sure it would be a great place for o work
