Numbers Trumps Safety and Quality.
Quality Control Inspector (Current Employee), Walkerton, INOctober 1, 2014
While it is a job, per-se, They try to squeeze out of a two-shift operation what they should do in three. It is not uncommon for forklift operators to speed through the plant in order to "keep things moving," which poises a safety risk for all pedestrians. The turnover rate is horrendous as management does not care if they run someone off. Their mentality – more... is that there will always be someone else to replace you. Due to this, they are finding it very hard to hire new people. Being in a small town, in which many live within ten miles, word-of-mouth spreads like wildfire. They are in danger of losing a major customer due to poor quality, (a by-product of the high turnover rate). All-in-all, if I could do it all over again, I would much rather go back to being a substitute mail carrier with a constantly breaking down mail vehicle and only working one to two days a week than to have had made the conscious decision to work in this micro third world country. – less

Line Operator (Current Employee), Tampa, FLJanuary 25, 2014
Pros: incentives, safety dinners

Decent Management, younger supervisors and leads to all of the work for the Foreman who just sit in their offices. Day shift receives raises more often then Night Shift. Incentives are awesome every 1/4 year though and also co-workers are awesome.

Grader (Former Employee), Estcourt, ZNDecember 3, 2013
Pros: we had lunch of 30 munites
Cons: no long hours
At Masonite I learned how to differintiate the different kinds of boards and how its being processed from wood to the board. The management was good I experience how to manage the staff as from the manager to lower workers. I had a good teamwork with my co- workers because we worked together as one and helping each other if one is struggling with the – more... work. The hardest part is the hot steams, machenis, saws and forklifts where you need to be careful. The enjoyable part is when you reach the target that is required for that day. – less

Team-oriented work environment and great benefits!
Territory Sales Manager (Current Employee), Tampa, FLSeptember 6, 2013
Pros: incentives, corporate card for fuel (and food and hotels, when travelling), car allowance, benefits from the month after your hire date
Cons: lack of employee training, car allowance is taxed
TSMs for Masonite grow sales by making daily store visits, training store associates, and inspecting field claims for stores' requests for credit. They are also the local and primary contact for the stores in their given territory for any questions, concerns, or issues that arise. My co-workers are great and extremely helpful. The hardest part of the – more... job is being stuck in the middle of a damage/warranty claim while having to wait on an answer from someone else, and trying to learn about our products while still doing my job. Driving long distances isn't the best either, but I'm not complaining. Overall, it's a great company! – less

Pros: they would do excerises at the begginning of the shft so no1 would get hurt.

I would go in and build doors and clean the machines at the end of the nite. I learned how the doors got built and how to repair doors if needed to be and how to buff the doors. The management was ok the boss that hired us threw was hardly ever was in the office and wouldn't be able to answer all the question I had. The coworkers there was ok they helped – more... you out and made you feel welcome and joked around with me and stuff. The hardest part about the job was being bent over all nite building the doors. The most part I enjoyed about the job was the people I worked with and the jobs I was doing I liked them all. – less

Good for temporary employment in the summer
Glass Picker (Current Employee), Pittsburg, KSAugust 2, 2013
Pros: easy to get on
Cons: nowhere to go once you get there
Masonite works on a feast or famine cycle, following construction: Busy in the summer, not so much in the winter. It requires an average of 6-9 months to become full time, which comes with a substantial pay increase, but Masonite reserves the right to postpone that roll-over indefinitely. Upward movement is very stagnant, it's a top-heavy organization. – more... Expect 12 hour days in the summer, and 20-30 hours per week in the winter. – less

Decent job no room for advancement
Door Buyer/Planner (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCMay 6, 2013
Pros: i was in charge of employee appreciation day
Cons: no room for advacnement
I went to work at 6am and worked until 4pm. I was very busy helping others and doing what I needed to get done every day. I was responsible for creatng and maintaing our Bill of materals so i was always interacting with IT to come up with ways to improve on the process. I interacted with managment and procurement team daily to ensure the materials we – more... needed were avilable. I had to schedule all the production lines and presses. I maintain all our min/max levels. IMy co workers were fun to work with and we all had something to bring to the table that made out jobs easier. My co workers made the job fun and we always helped one another. Since there was a huge lay off in Aprilof 2012 we al had to take on more job duties so we had to rely on one another to keep going and keep out spirits up, – less
