Thread regarding PGT Inc. layoffs

Lay offs

Pgt is currently trying to layoff a whole shift because its sales team didnt do their job right. While it is the sales teams fault they arent the ones paying for it. The grunts are paying for it . Specifically third shift. Pgt is full of liars and cheapskates.

PGT paints itself as a company that truly cares about their employees. B.S. They laid-off people across all four divisions without mercy. People who were actually working HARD for endless hours a week to make things function. Of course, none of the fat-cats who do NOTHING but sit around in meetings all day were let go. They have people in high salary ranges who are allegedly "managers" who have no clue what they're doing. Communication is by finger pointing at meetings and aggressive, offensive emails. They are RUTHLESS and make employees believe that they care. They don't.

Pgt is planning another layoff. This time they are talking about getting rid of hourly workers. Although cutting HR and more leadership would make more sense. Seriously why does each shift need 3 bosses in each department. They should do the smart thing and do another surprise d–g test and let the pot heads get what is coming to them. PGT is NOT a family business and they definitely do not care about their workers. They are slave drivers that only care about the money that they are putting in their useless upper staffs pockets.

PGT is dead. The way Paul and Rod built it are dead. It’s a ruthless organization that truly cares nothing for its people. They are masters at putting lipstick on a pig
They have made themselves fat with VPs reporting to VPs
The only way to stand up to that organization is for the rank and file to organize. The entire front E team are spineless self serving sharks well except for two.
A union is the only thingtogether and finally make it happen. that can right the ship. The top will never self govern or make rules for themselves.
I wish the true leaders on the floor would get

If the rank and file would all take pay cuts and cut some of the bonuses then maybe they could pay their employees. Debbie Lapinska who is the Vice President of Human Resources make $700,000 a year. For being over human resources are you kidding me ? She's the low person on the totem pole at that pay rate. I wonder if the vice president of Goldman Sachs, GM, Ford, Walmart and other industry giants make that much. PGT although one of the largest employers in the area and maybe the state is pale in comparison to those companies I mentioned.

My heart is heavy for those who lost their jobs. I heard about the layoffs in 2007. It seems that just over 10 years later they are heading in the same direction. Is this company really as progressive as they say they are? It seems like they are moving backwards. I guess all their employees can do now is pray for a late hurricane, so business picks up, because their financial team appears to be struggling to get it right and give the company the advise they need to sustain.

Hopefully the next time they have a job fair, they will inform their prospects of the instability that comes with riding their ride.

This is so scary. Loyalty, community, family, HONESTY, INTEGRITY. All part of the company motto at one point. I am concerned about the integrity of the company. They have long had issues with properly placing people in positions that best fit their skill set and I can confirm that the company does not pay well in comparison to the high demand, work load, and stress levels involved during their processes. They grossly underpay a large majority of their employees, with the exception of those who fit a certain demographic. It is a boys club with a very low glass ceiling. Hopefully the "restructuring" that occurs fixes (or attempts to address) some of thos issues.

They were all salary people? No, many were not salaried positions - mine was not. A total of 8 hourly workers from Customer Service were let go. I'm 64. My full retirement age is 66. I cannot get Medicare yet and who will hire me knowing I will probably retire in a year? I have a mortgage, car payment, etc. Contrary to what I hear from people who don't work there, PGT does NOT pay well, but I was able to survive, but only because I had the skill and was willing to do work asked of me that was well above my pay grade. I had worked there for over 22 years.

Pgt termanated 41 people today. They were all salary people some had been there over 20 years. We were told they would be shutting down a couple of lines for c shift but moving them employees to spots in the company. Most of the lines are already way short staffed. I work on a line that should have 40 people and we only have 16 but we still get the job done. Most of us have to do 3to 4 jobs at the same time because of the staffing issues.
