Beware if you like time off!

Group Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at JELD-WEN full-time for less than a year

ProsGood benefits but you will work OFTEN!

ConsYou will work many many hours in a week to include weekend. If you like your time off I would reconsider this company.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to be proactive and not reactive. This would cut down in all the overtime. Only take on business you can do. I know it is more cost effective to work over time then to hire more employees to get the job done in 4o hours. Hence, future employees beware.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

No professionalism on any level

Group Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at JELD-WEN full-time for more than a year

ProsTeaches you how not to run a manufacturing facility

ConsVery long hours every week. Frequent mandatory weekend work with no clear goals set at the start of the day. Little to no notice of overtime. Lack of leadership and vision by upper management. Everybody operates in a state of fear of being written up.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to trust people once they are in a position. Try something new once in a while. Get some education in the field you are working in.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have worked for JELD-WEN for over 10 years.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Klamath Falls, OR (US)

I have been working at JELD-WEN full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI really enjoy the group that I work with, and I love what I do. The community among co-workers is very friendly.

ConsUpper management has lost sight of employees and focuses ONLY on the dollar. Upper management including our CEO make promises to our customers that they expect us to keep NO MATTER the cost to us personally in time spent at the office or vacation lost while they do nothing to help meet that expectation.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider paying your employees competitive wages!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
