productive and fun workplace with pool table
Tradesman (Current Employee) –  Melbourne VIC14 January 2019
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

Lack of training, poorly managed
Administration (Former Employee) –  Melbourne VIC11 May 2016
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

nice indoor work environment
labor (Current Employee) –  Pottsville NSW2 March 2016
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

Unsupportive management, co-workers are wonderful!!
Internal Sales and Customer Service (Former Employee) –  St Mary's, NSW21 June 2015
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

Multi National company built on manufacturing locally, in an enviroment that is not conjusive to manufacturing
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Western Suburbs Melbourne26 December 2013
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
