Andersen Windows for almost 25 years
Factory and office work (Former Employee), Bayport, MNOctober 4, 2013
Pros: we had a very nice time at aw. at my time of employment we were given profit sharing, health benefits, 401k match, full time employment, and very fun times.
Cons: only negative i can say is the heat in the summer time. it was extremely hot and very uncomfortable.
My job at AW was very rewarding for me. I miss the people I worked with, I do get together with them whenever it is possible. After 24 years I decided it was time to do something different. I then moved to my career job choice. I took care of the elderly for many years. I enjoyed this until recently, I worked for private people. I need to be around – more... more people on a more regular basis.

I started work at 4:30AM and worked until 2PM. My first duty was to do the numbers. That means I needed to record all of the production from the day before in my group. This had to be done accurately or it didn't match the schedule. Several times I would call supervisors to get information needed so I could continue on with my day. I went out to floor to count several pieces of products. These counts had to be accurate or I would have to figure why we were so off from the counts in the system. We had several different pieces of products and we were given a week to get these done. We worked at our own pace and had to be helpful to others if they were behind. All these figures had to be put in a system on the computer. We were like on our own, but were watched by superiors. This was great because I always got finished on time and accurately. This job was the easiest job I had in the 24 years of service. It was a great way to end my career with Andersen's. – less

Super production job
Production/Office Associate (Former Employee), Menomonie, WIAugust 31, 2013
Pros: super clean, air conditioning, good pay, great break rooms, super benefits
Cons: repetition
I learned about lean manufacturing, care of machinery, time-motion work, power and air tools, and customer expectations.
My managers were the best!
My co-workers made work a breeze.
The hardest part was the repetition, but the co-workers make up for it.

extrusion operator level 3 (Current Employee), North Branch, MNAugust 11, 2013
Pros: opportunity to learn and test yourself
Cons: not the best training program, rotatiting days and nights
pretty poor training at first but once they can tell you are serious about your job and have some potential they begin to take special interest in you and it vastly improves. very nice and helpful bosses, wide variety of people working there

CSR II (Former Employee), Bayport, MNAugust 20, 2012
Typical day included answering phone calls, dealing with product issues/delays, working on custom order quotes and ordering product. I learned a lot of different things while working at Andersen. The management is fair and job expectations were very clear. Co-workers helped out and answered questions when there were some. The hardest part of the job – more... was learning all the custom product options that there were and how lead-times are figured. The most enjoyable part of the job was having a sales representative or dealer rep call up and say thanks! – less
