Typical corporate america - run away from this place!
QA Tester (Current Employee) – Oak Hill, OH – 24 April 2018
Ever since new management has taken over this company, it has went downhill. We aren’t making as much money (as a company), they do not care whatsoever about their employees, and they force you to think this is a great place to work. When I say force I am not exaggerating. You don’t get to have an opinion, if you disagree with anything corporate says you are now considered stupid or you’re next on the cutting board. I wish I was kidding.
They force everyone to say “this is what makes HWI a great place to work” after every meeting. It’s like a cult. It’s not a good place, it used to be. They’re building a new plant down south and shutting down their main plant that actually made the company money with NO EXPLANATIONS TO THE EMPLOYEES WHO WILL BE LOSING THEIR JOB! This plant was open since 1911. They aren’t even receiving a severance package. But yet it’s a great place to work?
They have zero clue about what the plants make or what products we own. All they care about is if things look “pretty” and “new”. It’s a joke.
Horrible training. Then when you mess up they chew you out and make everything your fault. Makes sense, right? I’ve never been so stressed at a job and it’s a shame because the plant itself was the best job I’ve ever had. But typical corporate America ruined it. And this company will not succeed if this corporate leadership still is running it in 2-3 years. Don’t waste your time.
This is not a place to retire. Run far far away. Do not waste your time. I wish I could have seen this review before I accepted this position.
Plant level - employees are amazing. Decent pay thanks to the UNION! Not corporate.
Treats their salary employees like garbage, no future, corporate leaders ruined this company
