- McComb Window & Door03.Dec 2015
If you are part of the family, you're in. I left because of the flagrant nepotism
Support from management
My supervisor was great. Above him, the leadership was non-existent.
The majority of people that came through the warehouse were great.
Freedom to work independently
It was warehouse work. We were pretty much left to ourselves to get the work done.
I don't recall having a meeting in the 4-5 years I was there.
Women would not be able to handle the physical requirements. But they were allowed in the office.
Attitude towards older colleagues
They treated the older carpenters well.
The ladder is only for family.
Overall compensation for your work
They micro managed the clock. And they offered very few sick days and vacation days.
Office / Work Environment
After three shoulder surgeries due to damage caused by carrying overweight windows and doors over rough job sites, up stairs.. It was terrible.
The hours weren't bad. 6-2:30 and a lot of over-time if you wanted it.
You had job security if you could handle the load.
There is no way they would have complied with OSHA standards. The one time OSHA came through we did inventory. Had they measured some of the three wide doors or large windows they would have been flagged. Or had they came out to a job site in January when you had to carry a several hundred pound door with side lights over frozen mud....
The work was redundant.
Inclusive / Diverse
This is a family business. You will always be an outsider.
Suggestions for improvement
- There is no hope. The family would have to sell the business.
What I dislike about the company
They could care less about the delivery drivers. After my third surgery, someone from leadership brought out a check from workers comp, about 900 bucks, and told me to rub it on my shoulder the next time it hurt.
