    Pros

    Employee owner, salary, Insurance and lots of Paid Time Off. Great co workers. All kinds of perks with local businesses as well.

    Cons

    Certain politics make it difficult for others to advance within the company, and your voice is not heard by people in positions of power. You feel as if your family at home , doesn’t mean much to anyone but you. You don’t know what time you’re going home until around noon of said day.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with C.H.I. Overhead Doors. This spring, we announced that we would have a standardized start time year round for our manufacturing operations. This will help in providing a better work-life balance for our associates. Furthermore, we've launched daily gemba walks in which our entire leadership team spends several hours on the plant floor each morning. This has proven to be incredibly beneficial for our teams in understanding the day to day events on the floor. While it saddens me to see that you've left C.H.I. Overhead Doors, we do appreciate your open and candid feedback. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or concerns.

    I worked at C.H.I. Overhead Doors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company cares about their employees and will give raises accordingly. They appreciate hard work. Also if you ever need to lose weight, work in the Plant for a couple months and you will lose quite a bit of weight. You get a paid week for holiday shutdown after your first calender year. You also get an additional floating paid vacation after your 3rd calender year. You have 2 "Free Days" every six months. Free days are awarded by perfect attendance and not having an accident on the job. Excellent insurance benefits ( I miss those the most )

    Cons

    Since the doors are "Made to Order", you never know when you are getting off work when you Walk in on Monday, and when you walk in on Friday. The bosses do, however, let you know when they know how late you are staying at work, and when you are leaving on Friday. It is difficult to make plans Friday afternoon if you don't know if you are getting off at 1 p.m. or 5 p.m. If you are looking to move up in this company, your best bet might be Foreman of 2nd shift. But that is earned by working there a LONG time and acquiring leadership skills that the current supervisors can see that you've done. Realistically, to move up in this company, you either have to be Amish, have an Amish last name, or have a college degree with many credentials.
