Slave (Former Employee) –  Bristol, CTJanuary 18, 2019
If you have any self pride, stay away from from this prison. You wiil be forced to perform duties, not in your job description, including lifting betweeb 5 and 20 100lb boxes of siding per day BY YOURSELF! Ask for help and they will send over the temps who are strung out on drugs 99% of the time. Just, don't work here.

Operator/Laborer (Current Employee) –  Richford, VTJuly 20, 2018
A typical day at work starts with me making labels for the next boxes I am gonna make after I take over for the other people. Hardest part of my job is keeping up with the pace but I have gotten so used of the fast pace. The most enjoyable part of my job is doing my labels.
Pros
Easy once you get used to it

Stable company without a clue
Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  AnonymousApril 16, 2018
You will be working for an accounting firm that manufacturers vinyl and alum products. Middle management has as much authority as lower level managers(almost none) necessitating every quote/question/request must be passed up the chain of command. This division is the red headed stepchild of the overall company and is treated as such.
Pros
Good Work/Life balance
Cons
No articulated strategy for growth.

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLFebruary 24, 2018
Every day was great. The radio plays a new song, the truck comes in, and the day begins. It was a team effort to unload the containers, and everyone who worked there filled their roles.

Territory Manager (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 30, 2017
Started this B@B sales job at the height of the 2008 recession, and just could not get the territory off the ground, not for lack of trying, but for a lot of reasons. Unrealistic sales goals were set, competitive pricing was not available etc.
Pros
Great boss

Great hard working people work here. They are very unappreciated.
Corporate Branch (Former Employee) –  Williston, VTAugust 14, 2017
Micro management from some departments at the Corp level. The people for the most part are very hard working and dedicated to the company. Some of upper management lacks faith in their workers in my opinion. The benefits are very affordable, but the pay is not so great for branch employees and they are the ones dealing with the customers and the materials. Management is very understanding when it comes to family/work balance.
Pros
Affordable Benefits
Cons
Lack of faith in employees abilities to do their jobs. Micro management.
