Always food somewhere
Factory Laborer (Former Employee), Pella, IANovember 21, 2014
Pros: always dinners, potlucks etc...
Cons: you could tell you had a work out by the end of the day
I would complete orders to the best of my ability. Customer satisfaction and safety are top priorities. I have met a lot of wonderful people at Pella Corp. and I was very proud to let people know that I was a member of the Pella team. A lot of labor was in my job description but that made the day go fast. Management was professional.

overall, a wonderful place of employment
Machine Operator/Assembler (Former Employee), Sioux Center, IAOctober 12, 2014
Pros: extremely clean envoiornment for machining materials.
Cons: never knew exactly how long this manager would be there
enjoyed fellow employees and working with computer assisted machines and assembling final parts. Had a large turnover in the management side which had a minimal effect on the employees I was working with. I was laid off during one of the company downsizings they had in that period and bega retirement.

Company to Grow with
Supply Chain Manager (Former Employee), Story City, IowaAugust 25, 2014
I started out as an hourly team member and worked my way up through the ranks very quickly. Pella is the place that I learned how to become a leader that understands metrics and how to get what is needed. I thought I would retire with Pella and would have if the housing market didn't play a role in shutting down my plant in Iowa. I very much respect – more... Pella and wish nothing but the best for them! – less

Assembler (Former Employee), Pella, IAMarch 11, 2014
Pros: compensation was awesome, great coworkers
Cons: long hours, a lot of weekends
semi seasonal work. winters were usually slow so you could get a lot of time off or work reduced hours. summer months were very busy so it was hard to take time off and usually work 50+ hours per week.

Hard work, well paid
Assembler (Former Employee), Pella, IADecember 18, 2013
Pros: wages, room for growth
Cons: hiring managers fresh out of college with little to no work experience.
Extremely hard work. Fast paced. Heavy lifting. Extremely hot in the summer... Having said that, it is one of the highest paid employers in the area.

6 days a week during busy season/summer
Very slow during slow season, employees encouraged to take time off.

Constant management changes. Always someone new.

Co workers were great, they were happy for – more... the most part and easy to work with.

Always an opportunity to change positions, learn something new, or change departments.

Drama free. Management doesn't bother with nonsense found in other companies. All they care about is numbers and productivity. – less
