Please meet some of our Gunton Team members.
When a new team member is on-boarding at Gunton, several shadow training days are scheduled that allow the individual to follow the order process from the sale through installation and service (if required). They meet many of their teammates that they may not encounter on a regular basis and gain an understanding and appreciation for the contribution each member makes to “getting it right the first time.” We are an organization that knows it is our employees that distinguish us in the eyes of our customers. Take a moment and read what it is like to be a member of the Gunton Team.
"Integrity is a word that is thrown around too often, but with Gunton Corporation, it is an accurate description regarding all branches of the company. In my short time here, I have seen everyone from the sales team to our delivery drivers exercise character in every facet of their job. Everyone has the same goal, to deliver our customers the best quality windows while displaying the most professional service. It is a friendly atmosphere, and every employee is thoroughly trained. That is why, for both the customer and employee, Pella is viewed to be the best."
"Talented people and great leadership make Gunton Corporation the place to work. I appreciate that we are kept informed with quarterly update meetings to let us know the status of the company and where it is headed. This company is always looking for bright, new talent and there are opportunities for furthering education or changing career paths within the company. The management team is down to earth, approachable, and they care about the employees. I feel fortunate to be a part of the team and I have enjoyed my 15 years here."
"Pella ranks #1 in consumer branding awareness. We carry one of the most elaborate product selections in the industry. All of that is merely a bonus - it’s the people within the company that make it such a great job. I truly enjoy showing up every day because I know I’ll get the support, encouragement and comradery that makes my work week fun. Yes, I said it, my job is fun!"
