Team Member (Current Employee) – Lexington, TN – August 19, 2018
In the 7 years I have worked here I only had lateral moves - never what you call a promotion. The work is long and boring and management keeps everyone in the dark. The other people i work with are great.
It was okay will it lasted. Didn’t like that they were making a lot of changes as far as letting people go that worked there 10+ years. The work culture was changing a lot and it was just not organized and lack of communication.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 15, 2018
NCI Building Systems is in the process of being sold to Ply-Gem, layoffs in some locations should be expected, as well as some possible facility closures. Changes could be for the better or for worse, for now management is keeping it all secret, so far all is unknown for the little people, we will see when the buyout is complete in 2019.
Labeler, Material handler, General Helper (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 14, 2018
Woke up at 4 am my drive was a bit a longer than usual, clocked in helped people clock in because the change the clock in system a lot for some odd reason, after that morning meetings and then after 20 minutes or so we went to work; Inspected that the labels were correct for the job that was loading that day or the day before to make sure everything was out in time, had to talk to shipping to make sure they had all the materials needed to continue their operations. 3 hours into walking labeling and talking to management explaining to them whats going on break time about 15 minutes, then after that searing for jobs that load up first for the next day until lunch at 11 then brake again at 3pm and 6 pm or so we leave. Arrived home at 8 pm due to commute.
Low pay, work never gets noticed, you will not see your family
As a welder I was put by myself no matter how much I did or what extra I did it was never enough. Nothing but negativity on 2nd shift moral is low everyone wants to leave but can't there stuck because they have no time to look for another job. I asked for the 31st off 2 weeks ago never got an answer. My welding jacket had the whole side tore out of it ask 3 times for a new one . just walked by like a 2 year old. 15.50 an hour isn't worth being mad and depressed at work.
If you don’t have an outside life this is your job
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Tolleson, AZ – July 8, 2018
Typical day there goes from 5am to 630pm Monday through Friday and 5 am to 230pm Saturday’s and 5 hrs Sunday . The management there completely disregards the employees ideas and feelings . It’s a super toxic environment among all lines ! Most employees leave before there 3 month “review” period. Oh and don’t let me get started on the work load they are SUPER UNORGANIZED. You can bust your butt all day long there and NO ONE will seem to care about it.

If you are an immigrant or an illegal great place for you to work. They pick and choose who gets advanced or hired on GOD for bid you have an emergency and have to miss a few days during your probation period they will push your hire date back a month or two.
Welder/Fabricator (Current Employee) – Elizabethton, TN – April 26, 2018
70+ hours a week, 6 day work weeks. Good insurance but that is it. They lie about pay and raises, not a chance to move up unless you have relatives working for the company. Also it is a prerequisite to be a scum bag to be promoted. They work you to death and then expect more. Supervision doesn’t know how to supervise and lack of job knowledge is Plentiful Among the supervision and upper management.
Operator (Current Employee) – Texas – April 17, 2018
Employees and management work well together. Each member of the team understands the expectations of their role. The hours are long and hot in summer months. Nice place to work on winter, maintain 80 degrees in plant. Employee safety is a primary focus and discussed daily. I would recommend to a friend. Recent internal promotions makes it a possibility.
Production Welder (GMAW) (Former Employee) – Monticello, IA – January 24, 2018
Understand right away if you plan on having a life out of work this place is not for you. They are under employed, really don't take initiative to try and hire more people, and leave everyone who does work there to work ridiculously long hours. They want safety and quality to be the main things their employees to worry about, but then get upset when production is down. This also comes back to the point of being under-employed. Most of the people you work with though are really nice and great team players
Production Scheduler/Programmer (Current Employee) – Mount Pleasant, IA – January 16, 2018
I love what I do at NCI. My position keeps me busy, and this is one reason I enjoy doing this. However, I have been doing 2 jobs for the last 2 years, and I have not been given a raise to compensate for this. I have asked, but no one seems to take me seriously. I don't feel things are addressed, so the moral is not very good. The most challenging part of my job is when a revision comes in after the shop floor has already started processing it. I'm good at troubleshooting, and helping fellow co-workers with the issues they come across.
Poor Safety leadership - Long Hours - The good leaders leave.
Welder (Current Employee) – Mt. Pleasant, IA – January 7, 2018
The Safety is very bad. The overtime is not supervised. In the 3 years I have worked there only 1 manager was worker friendly and really cared about Safety and fixing things to make work better and He quit last fall. No family life. poor supervision.
Stressful with excessive overtime for over 6 months
Manager (Current Employee) – Mount Pleasant, IA – January 3, 2018
Employee's are expected to work from 5 AM to 5 PM every weekday and 8+ hours on Saturday. Very seldom is Sunday work required. All material is heavy and can be sharp so PPE is required at all jobs even when it is hot and humid.
Roll grinder (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – December 17, 2017
Great place to work...good management and hard workers. This company paints and slits steel that is used in buildings, construction, and a lot of other items. You work together as a team and work long hours
Vice President Technical Services (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – December 13, 2017
Job was highly dictated by corporate office and if you are not located in Corporate office your ideas and skills did not matter. Hardest part of job was to keep current on projects in a changing priority environment. Support people we good and hard working,
