machine operator (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – January 31, 2018
Reeb was a very good place to work. I had great coworkers and supervisors. the only draw back is that its primarily a seasonal job due to the weathers effect on the building industry in the area. so its very hectic in the summer months and hard to get hours in the winter months, but if you work hard they will reward you when ever they can..

Reeb is going through change. New management has been brought in at the Exec level and is making progress with cultural change and accountability. Reeb really needs to let go of it's "poor performers" and release those people that don't know or understand the business and hide behind emails. In order for REEB to succeed, management needs to be in front of their people leading by example. Tell, Show, Do. That is how you earn respect, understand the business and gain loyal people. The new regime is working hard at making this happen and many managers / supervisors are following and there is a shift in the dynamic of the workforce. However, there are senior leaders in the company who lack organization, poor planners, come in late - leave early - take long lunches, fail to follow through and worst of all LIE to their team. The Accounting Dept, HR Director and IT need a complete revamp and employ leaders who actually get things done. Its a shame that everyone in the business can see failing upper level leadership and yet the top execs of the business aren't able to cut ties. The work environment and buy in from the workers would be much better.
Fast paced and a chance to grow within the company
Door Puller (Current Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – December 2, 2017
Works starts at a very fast paced and often it slows down a bit but there is always work to do. They offer training to work in various fields in the facility when the opportunity arrives or is announced. A good team of staff and senior staff. A friendly environment. There are strict rules and safety regulations to abide by to provide a safe and healthy working environment. They offer very good and competitive benefits to all new employees.
PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – October 31, 2017
What I learned is to always watch your back! The workplace was fast moving and the hardest part of job was to remove the hostilities. The 2nd shift was always scrutinized no matter good of job they did.
Window Assembler (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – September 29, 2017
Nice people to work with. I learned how to properly assemble windows back together before they were taken to final assemble. Management was very laid back but made sure everything was getting done on time and with accuracy.
Two breaks plus a lunch break.
Transporting of glass was sometimes difficult due to congestion of carts in walk ways.
Shipping and Receiving (Current Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – August 9, 2017
Great place to work with decent pay and hours. Management is decent and they take care of their employees. Occasionally get free lunches which is nice. Benefits and overtime are available, and lots of departments to choose from if you want to move around.

Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – July 29, 2017
Fun job with very nice individuals to work with. The accounting work was basic and easy. The work environment was very laid bad.
With that said, the finance/accounting department was a mess. They were constantly missing invoices, they sign everything by hand, the software they use is very outdated (VERY), and they were constantly missing a portion of their discount dates sheerly because they were unable to locate physical invoices.
No digital records like most normal companies today, everything was in file cabinets, or just in piles above shelves. I am surprised the bosses allow such a clutter and literally lose money because of it.
Needs a complete revamp in my opinion.
Overall the people were very nice and friendly, though, so it was enjoyable vs. being yelled at or ordered around.
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – January 4, 2017
Everyone is really nice There is a lot to learn but as long as youre willing to learn, it should come relatively easy There is help everywhere you turn, so never hesitate or feel bad for asking a question They want you to do well there
It was like family there. Team spirit was very high, everyone helped each other to meet the objectives.
Order Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Barclay, MD – July 31, 2016
I enjoyed coming to work everyday. It was a new field for me, I worked mostly in banks prior to this job. I learned all about doors, how they are made and what goes into fitting a new door into its place. All my co-workers were like family, they all worked togeather to get the orders taken and get the orders out each day. Working with a team of people that seemed to care about each other, was the most enjoyable part of the job. The hardest part was learning all the parts it takes to build a door.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Barclay, MD – June 11, 2016
So first of all pretty much all management here were just a bad choice for the company, supervisors sending inappropriate text messages to staff, supervisors coming In to work drunk, supervisors mentally abusing employees by telling them they are worthless and will never amount to anything. On top of all that barclay has human resources susan, who is about the most hateful lonely sad evil woman and that's saying it kindly, she hates all employees probably because she hates her life but if she ever has to talk to you or hears any gossip she will fire you on the spot no evidence she just has zero tolerance even if it's not true she has had multiple assistants in the past 10 years and all of them quit because she verbally abuses them. Supervisor will promise you advancement and fill your head that your on to great thing but they will turn around and tell the next person you do horrible work and they hope you find a new job soon. The good employees and supervisors the company has ever gotten end up fired or quit the company is like a high school and you'd think men wouldn't be so hormonal and dramatic but the men in the company cause more drama then a drama club in high school and if you get employment thru reeb do not I repeat do not ever give anyone your phone number or Facebook because as soon as you post something about your weekend with your spouse or kids the whole company is talking about it like you killed someone.
Wonderful work environment,coworkers become more like family. Benefits are great for the area and pay is reasonable. Management is flexible and always supportive. Some employees complain about the attendance policy however I have never had a issue.Company works off of a "point" system- for those who come to work on time and do not habitually call out this is not a problem. Lots of room to advance as this is a rapidly growing company.
Assembler/Material Handler (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – May 5, 2016
Worked on an assembly line building doors. enjoyed the experience since I had none with carpentry tools. Enjoyed the people I worked with and was a steady paced environment. Enjoyed working with a variety of building tools. learned new things
Shipping Supervisor (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – February 24, 2016
Pay is poor, hours are poor and management doesn't care to improve on the process' or procedures. In the year I spent working here in management all I ever herd was complaints from employees about poor compensation, poor procedures, poor process', and poor safety. No matter what I tried to do to improve, upper management was not on board with any changes. From the truck drivers to productions and warehouse employees, upper management doesn't care. Overall, its a dirty, poorly managed company that has no loyalty to its employees.
