    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at JELD-WEN.

    Interview Details

    Had the first interview with a recruiter. After about a week had a phone interview with the engineering director. After a month I was flown in for an onsite interview. The onsite interview was about 5 hours with directors and engineers at the Klamath Falls facility. The interview ended with lunch with the engineering team that I would be placed on. The company called me over a month later and told me I didn't get the position.

    Interview Details

    Went through the internship program. They interviewed after and then received the job offer. Training after was week long with the boss and then you are on your own. It was not difficult getting the job and I would describe the process as being easy.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions, just asked about past experience.   Answer Question

    Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Klamath Falls, OR (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at JELD-WEN.

    Interview Details

    1. Interview by recruiter via manpower (Jeld-Wen's contracted recruiting partner) 2. Personality test online 3. Interview by supervisor on-site at Jeld-Wen

    The interview by the supervisor was poorly executed. The agreed upon call time was missed two times in a row by the supervisor. Once on the phone and interviewing it felt like I was being interviewed for a similarly titled job with a much different description than the position I had applied for. The process felt unorganized and wasteful of an applicants time.

    Interview Questions
    • Specific technical questions about how to fix and IT problem without any insight to their systems or structure.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at JELD-WEN.

    Interview Details

    There wasn't much of an interview, they don't hire internally they hire through a temp to hire company. They mainly hire people at a bottom level and weed people on the production lines. If you can pee in a cup and stack doors you'll probably get hired on full time.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't a lot of questions when I get called in. When I did get hired on full time though they do make you do a personality test and a basic fractions and math test.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was none since it was through a temp agency.
