Productive workplace that fun and easy if you are willing to put in a little effort.
Production Quality, and TWI trainer (Current Employee) – Windsor, CO – March 24, 2018
I typical day at Vestas usually involves showing up on time, doing stretches, being assigned a task by lead or supervisor and then doing that task until the end of the day. The task themselves are not complicated but do require knowledge that, upon completing multiple times, gets significantly easier. There are many different departments at Vestas, so if you ever get bored or want to change things up, management can usually help with that. The employees are fun to work with and get to know and everyone is working towards the same goal.

In the beginning they try real hard to push safety on you and once you hit the floor they do not care at all. Ive seen people hanging on the blades while turning them. Ive seen people not using gloves while handling chemicals. And seen people griding and cutting without masks, when i told supervisors they did nothing.
Tech II (Current Employee) – Bad Axe, MI – March 15, 2018
It was a great company to get in with to help set you up for your future. have good training programs and have the opportunity to learn a lot. I cant see myself being there to much longer because the money isn't there.
Do not work here unless you're in desperate need of a job
Hub Line Technician (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – February 10, 2018
horrible work environment. fast paced and heavy work loads for what they pay you. a lot of favoritism that goes on here and unless you know someone or suck up to management, you'll never get hired on. you can be the best worker there but some new employee will get hired on before you just because they know someone in management or are buddies with a click. everyone here is out to throw you under the bus in order to move up or look good. no job stability as this company constantly loses contracts and have lay offs especially for temp employees which make up about 80% of the work force. the work is very hard labor and can be very dangerous if you are not paying attention. i do not recommend this job to anyone who has back problems or is not looking to do hard labor. if you need a quick buck, you may want to work here but i do not recommend.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – February 8, 2018
No training what so ever. Upper management sucks. Policies need to be more detailed. 3 days on, 4 days off, 4 days on, 3 days off all 12 hour shifts. There's safety then there's way over board on safety.

This company promises you everything. They are not as advertised. If you end up in a disagreement with management don't expect HR to remain neutral in their investigation as they date most of the supervisors.
Manufacturing Associate (Former Employee) – Windsor, CO – December 31, 2017
At first its fun and exciting but after a while it wares on you quickly. The trainer i was stuck with was very angry and aggressive other employees were unwilling to assist more often then not. When ever a concern was brought up to management it was often ignored or so it seemed as long as production went on nothing else matters. On a daily bases I would get sprayed in the face with the harmful spray glues and when I brought it up to management it was shrugged off as i was told to just "move my face next time" and getting covered head to tow in fiber glass was by fare the worst part.
Short breaks run hard dangerous environment dismissive management
Builder (Former Employee) – Broomfield, CO – November 21, 2017
people that you work with is what makes it working there. meeting, exercise, report to your area to work finish were your co workers left off. take 2 10 minute breaks and a 1/2 hour lunch. management would visit 2 time per shift of 12 hours. hardest part was finding a manager. learned about alott of things that where very new to me and others.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Windsor, CO – November 17, 2017
The job itself was very interesting to me. The main problem i had was with forced overtime every week for almost a year. This caused problems in my home life as it did for many of my peers. The work is fairly fast paced depending on the job given to you. The people there are competitive or lazy, not much of a middle ground to be honest. The pay was relatively well for not needing any experience.
Finish Line (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – October 22, 2017
I was on Days an Management in finish is really bad They have favoritism crews that Micromanage everything you do, then get to do whatever they want at any time but you get in trouble they will time your breaks and time how long your in the restroom sometimes waiting till you get out the restroom to see what your doing and where u been. You will not get days off unless your liked by the supervisors. Training is horrible no chance for improvement unless your liked by the supervisors.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – August 4, 2017
There was no formal training for the finish department. When you came to work you were told where to go and then told what to do. If you didn't know how to do it they would show you for 5 seconds if at all. The schedule was hard to get used to as well. Every 2 weeks you were swapping between night shifts and day shifts. I know it has changed now and you work 3 months days and 3 months nights so its probably a little easier.
