Supervisors are unfair. They hardly are on the shop floor then pretend to know what’s going on.
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Wausau, WI – November 1, 2017
Don’t work here. Worst management ever. Day shift is very clicky and difficult to work with. Supervisors are judge mental and don’t know anything going on, on the shop floor. Overtime is required and is a ridiculous time away from your family. They tell you one thing and do the opposite. 4 tens and 3 days off means 5 ten hour shift.

The company truly does not care about you if you are not in sales. They will work you to death with well over 30 weekends a year of mandated overtime. The overtime is caused by broken business processes that the company refuses to fix because it would cost money and they are being profitable. Their profitability comes on the backs of massive overtime by its shop employees. RUN AWAY!!

This was a great place to work. There were lots of opportunities for advancement. Pay was based on merit. Management was easy to work with and the boss often provided us with treats (cookouts) for good production.

A very detailed oriented job, majority of the people were wonderful to work with, hours weren't the greatest if you have a family. Clean manufacturing setting with plenty of areas of opportunity to grow within the company

weld the frames ect., install the latches, locking mechanisms, adjust how far the window opens. all of this depends on what the job calls for. We made windows and sliding glass doors. When i had started working there it was called custom windows but Wausau had bought out the company and then decided to close the Colorado plant and thats why i went and worked Inslation becasue i didnt have to look for work.

I was told, during my first six months, that I was doing a good job by my supervisor. However, a new boss was hired on and things changed.
I was told that I was deficient & that "I would not have hired you if I had been here during the original hiring process." Regardless of the negativity, I worked hard and wanted to be part of a good team and was told by my co-workers that I was working very hard and they appreciated what I was doing.
I did learn a lot about myself, new concepts, and that I am good at what I do; however, one boss can ruin what you thought was your dream job.

It can be interesting with program errors. Support is limited on 2nd shift. Not a big fan of this shift. We don't see much of management which isn't neccesarily a bad thing. Some co-workers whiney and lazy. most are knowledgable good to be around. hardest part is driving to and working the long hours. Most enjoyable part is not working saturdays.
safety lunches, appreciative of the long hours we work
more scheduled hours then first shift. first shift bias.
