a typical day consists of hard productive work, sometimes deliveries are slow, which makes work less productive, I am enjoying having employment with Jeld win which well managed. I learn work safe each day and I am happy in my current position.

DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR WORKERS ON WORK OR PERSONAL MATTERS.

Managers & leading hands walking around thinking they a GOD, and no one is equal to them. They hold grudges and don’t give people second chances.


NO PROGRESSION. NO MATTER IF ITS DESERVED


There is discrimination, harassment, fights both verbal and physical and racism out in the floor, and it’s NOT dealt with by the company at all.


If you want to be miserable every day you leave the company then that’s the place to be.

Just poorly managed and they dont look after thier workers. The only thing good there is your fellow work mates. Management never take in to account to what thier workers say or ideas they always end up doing things thier own way. Management have no idea what they are doing they are so low life they wont let thier workers have an heat break when it reaches 40 degrees. Management are scum bags there

You go to work happy you and go back home messed up in the head.
Learning a lot and giving 100% does not pay back because you are dealing with “Managers” who of their point of view are GOD’s gifts for the organisation but from everyone else’s especially those under their direct supervision, are a nightmare.

With simpler words they are just machine operators with access to email and no people skills whatsoever.

You should never say what you mean but only what your manager wants to hear.

No training plans at all and full with false promises. Very little people and management skills, what is leading to extremely bad recruitment process.

Thankfully most of the co-workers are friendly and trying to help each other so you can push trough the day.
Pros
Early start early finish
Cons
Bad management of work force leading to unproductive overtime

busy
making windows,frames,joining frames.

management is fair

the workplace culture is perfect as no harrassment, bullying

the hardest part is when there is NO ENOUGH materials, hardware,other products,

Enjoyable part is when all workers are IN, working as TEAM, having good relationship between the team,positivity, all materials,and other work related material is enough.
Cons
overtimes

Jeld-Wen was a great place to start my IT career. An established global company specializing in the manufacturing industry, seemed to have unlimited career progression opportunities, however after 3 years I found that I hadn't been able to advance. The salary wasn't very competitive, however the atmosphere and colleagues made the job enjoyable, although challenging and stressful at times it was a good place to start.
Pros
Workplace attitude, lifestyle, team building
Cons
Limited progression, low salary

digital level, preparing longitudinal sections using AutoCAD Civil3D and

designing adequate levels and grades to match street, footpath and building

levels.

 Responding to phone enquiries and inspections associated with driveway

designs.

 Assisting council design engineers and surveyors with collecting field data for

the construction of roads, drainage, parks and footpath projects.

Worked for division in Melbourne. Worst company I have ever worked for. Staff camaraderie is the only reason it was bearable. Low moral, loads of staff moving on, lack of training, poorly managed, lack of respect for the workers who gave 100%. The company has lost good staff, lots of staff. One new employee gave notice within 7 days. There was no feed back from management, preferred to talk amongst themselves and not communicate information openly.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor Management Skills

The work and the co workers are good but the plant is very dis organized and managers are in competent and let some people get away with everything. If you are a good worker they will take advantage. Treat workers like kindergarteners when it comes to safety!! Any system that works well they will screw around with till it doesn't work as efficient anymore. The plant is well lit and warm in the winter. It does get very hot in the summer.
Pros
comfortable plant to work in.
Cons
short lunch break. poor management

The global IT departments are going through a significant period of change. Unfortunately dome of that is not being handled well but the end result will be a better and more cohesive global IT service for the company.

From the first time you answer a call in the morning until the last call you take in the afternoon, you will bombarded with frustrated, unhappy customers. Issues can vary from, faulty product, incorrect delivery of goods, incorrect goods received, bossy and impatient external sales members and customers chasing quotes that you have not had time to even look at. The working system is difficult to understand at first, there is minimal training given to new incumbents, but once you do learn, the hardest part is how long every simple task is re: paperwork/system entries/follow up.

Management have lost complete connection with the working team. Overworked and understaffed should be their catchphrase. Recently, unpaid overtime is expected everyday. Stress/frustration drives staff members to cry every other day, this is not an exaggeration.
Pros
Wonderful co-workers
Cons
Very stressful workplace with minimal support

Large Multi National company with potential to control market place, but lacked vision and know how to control market. Market forces where imported and price driven. Product similar making JELD-WEN just part of the pack (death in the middle). computer aided programmes where owned by JELD-WEN however not utilised and licences has lapsed. This would have been able to improve productivity by up to 50%, there by improving work life balance.
Logistics and manufacturing at peak in current environment.

Returning home every day after 8 hours on the road and hand drawing quotes and emailing prior to next day could take up to four and five hours extra per night.
Pros
Multi National company
Cons
technologically deficient
