I have been working at JELD-WEN

Pros

Lots of responsibility, good beginner job.

Cons

Difficult to move up from Group Manager, hours are quite long and included weekends. Be ready to move around the country if you want to keep advancing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay managment more. Listen to manager's preference for location. I know of two good managers in my short time there that left because management was inflexible about location.

No opinion of CEO

    I worked at JELD-WEN

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers
    Decent benefits package
    Convenient for people with kids to take time off when they want
    Management seemed to not care if employees have a bad attitude

    Cons

    Didn't pay enough to cover the cost of a place to live in and utilities
    People with kids were free to take time off often for sick kids with no disciplinary action as a result of taking too much time off
    Management was there to collect a pay check and was generally incompetent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could use actual management training. No one had actual experience doing their jobs, they had just worked for the company for a long time (or were men over 50).

    Pros

    People are good and friendly.

    Cons

    There is no growth opportunity, no bonuses. The benefits package is just an average. There is no serious performance evaluation and no salary raised. I won't recommend anyone to accept the offer. If anyone would like to, I would recommend to insist on onsite interview before accepting the offer and get information about entire details about the work and technology.
