job with decent benefits
Production Worker shells (Current Employee), Brighton, COJuly 9, 2015
Pros: green energy
Cons: shift change 12 hr days then 12hr nights
typical day at vestas have a meeting talk about safety quality and goals for the day. Gell coat would be first then we would do a lay up consisting of laying mats and cross supports and stringers takes 4 layers to build a blade. Next is a glue up would fly spar to blade for glue up then breakout the blade.we work as a team everybody has a job to do. Hardest part of the job is you got to work 12 hour days and 12 hour nights on a rotating shift. I am part of a green energy company building a brighter future for ourselves and families

Prepare to sell your soul
Production worker/ Finish (Former Employee), Windsor, COJune 1, 2015
Pros: It'll pay your bills
Cons: Literally everything... No joke.
Prepared to be on mandatory overtime until the cows come home! If you enjoy being treated like a moron, having your benefits cut, and never being eligible for a raise Vestas is the place for you! Safety is practically non existent, and management doesn't want to hear suggestions for improving the work environment. Pay is mediocre at best and as of last year Vestas no longer pays for employee health insurance, but who cares about your families health?! Vestas is gonna work you 6 days a week anyway, so you won't have time to go visit the doctor there's production to be made boy! Do yourself a favor, try and find an oilfield job, you'll get treated just as bad, work just as much, but you'll make a ton more money for what you put up with.

Most people were willing to help each other.
Lead Safety Technician (Former Employee), Brackettville, TXApril 9, 2015
Pros: Learned something new. Healthcare
It was a learning experience. I learned how to work through all adversity. I assist on numerous generator swaps. It also gave me a chance to work on various types of wind turbines. Also, it allowed me to work with different types of people. Which allowed me to adapt to different personalities.

Very safety oriented.
Resin Bay (Current Employee), Brighton, COMarch 19, 2015
Safety first is implanted in every daily meeting. Very informative on the production of the previous shift, where they are and where the next shift needs to be. Always working to achieve quality and production together as fast as possible without compromising the safety of the employees.

A great wind turbine company
Wind Technician 2 (Current Employee), Hennepin, OKMarch 3, 2015
Cons: poor safety culture.
A typical day would consist of troubleshooting any faulted turbines followed by routine maintenance. The safety culture at the site level is very poor, coorporate policy is very strong.

Pros: good pay and benefits if hired on permanently
Cons: only hire thew temp and mislead people thinking it will be a permanent job, not giving proper training or a chance to learn, i was hired then told i didn't have the skill to do the job, simply mass hire to lay off lots of people, with out giving them a chance.
measuring out fiber glass mesh , and cutting it to size for the production of blades , management was not involved much i met my sup once in the few weeks i worked there , the hardest part of job was getting use to standing 12 hours a day . i enjoyed learning

Good company with good employees to work with
Wind Turbine Technician (Current Employee), Tiskilwa, ILJune 6, 2014
The hours I worked were very resonable with some overtime here and there. Vestas allowed for a good balance between working hours and time away from work. They have good managers and the workers are always friendly and very knowledgable on all matters dealing with turbines. The most enjoyable party of the job was learning how these machines work and the troublshoot a turbine would throw at you from time to time. The hardest part would have to be the main component change outs. Not the change out itself, that is fairly easy.But the fact your 300 ft. in the air with the turbine cover off. Then it can get a bit uneasy up there!

A nightmare... Don't close you're eyes!
Manager (Former Employee), PortlandApril 17, 2014
Pros: healthy insurance
Cons: what wasn't a con, the entire vision statement is
Started out amazing until this reorganization happen. Yes we all knew the tax credit wasn't passing. But the senior management and directors should star in a reality show in how to screw over their team and treat them like they do not have families or heartbeats themselves.

If one decides to work here think long and hard for your own ethics/morals. You will not get help from P&C (their HR department). Legal, well to them I am sure it's another case.

Hat goes off to the last promotion to COO and now global VP service. He is one well deserved man in that company. 1 out of a 1000. Indeed he has his hands full!
