Jeld-Wen is an order driven company, which means they often take more orders than is realistically possible. This results in 6, and sometimes 7, days at work doing 12 hour shifts. Management is hit and miss, and often the treatment of the worker depends on who/what they know. Too often employees were given preference due to inappropriate relationships or interactions with management. However, I loved the work I did at Jeld-Wen and prided myself on making great quality windows. Even this created friction between myself and others since most employees were ok with sending junk as long as the numbers were there at the end of the day.
Decent pay and benefits
Long hours, bad management
