    Pros

    Good job advancement opportunities for those that are willing to work hard without continuously complaining

    Cons

    Office management not being able to visualize the overwhelming work loads of some and spreading it out so employees are not burnt out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    View overall employee work loads by dealer, account sales per year, # of salesman per account, dealer proximity to JELD-WEN plant to determine work load of employees. Better tools to deal with customer questions, quicker changes to company quoting and internal system.

    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family owned at the time I worked in one of their plants. Usually had weekends off even during busy times of the year. Tuition reimbursement offered and at the facility I worked there would have been plenty of time to go to school

    Cons

    Not a lot of business which made this a part time job. Management is incompetent and likes to have fall guys in place to protect their job. The real philosophy is to "keep your best workers underneath you" so a manager can make his or herself look better. Hiring a person with a degree does not make them a better candidate to manage an area vs someone with 10 years experience but the culture of Jeld-Wen says otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote your best and get rid of all you incompetent finger pointing blame gaming so called senior managers.
