Payroll / Production Clerk /Department Lead (Former Employee) – Olive Branch, MS – February 23, 2016
A typical day at work was interacting with the supervisors, Human Resource Manger and the hourly employer. I learned responsibility. I enjoyed working with all my co-workers, we treated each other like family. My boss was one of the best boss to work for. After working at Hart & Cooley for nine years, there was not anything hard about this job. The overall environment was wonderful.
I was able to schedule my work hours when I worked on the weekend.
Paco Machine Operator /Material Lead (Current Employee) – Olive Branch, MS – September 6, 2015
This company has great potential to be a strong draw for employment and business. They offer good pay and incentives but lose ground in areas like work conditions and environmental issues like air quality, and heat control. With forward thinking and up to date planning they could become the leader in their industry .
Short breaks, heat, environmental issues and equipment updates
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – July 29, 2015
Make production. Assembly parts. Learn to be fast but with a good quality of work in what I do. The hardest part of the job was make the number of production they asked for when a machine broke. I enjoyed work as a team.
I enjoyed working at Hart & Cooley and would plan to retire from this company if granted the opportunity in the future. Management worked with employees to change shifts and create a good working atmosphere.
production worker (Current Employee) – Nampa, ID – June 5, 2015
This is a factory with general labor workers. They make metal pipes, metal chimneys.The production workers are great to get along with and the management is also very good at communicating with the workers.
Wonderful place if you were lucky enough to experience it.
Brake Press Operator, Die setter, press operator (Former Employee) – Holland, MI – March 28, 2014
The work was repetitive as most production work is, but I found it satisfying. I learned so much about production here. The workers and management flowed well together and the pay was good. being around sheet metal is a dangerous place so keep those fingers gloved. The best part about it was the benefits and retirement plan that I didn't get to take advantage of when they closed the doors.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Olive Branch, MS – February 6, 2014
A typical day was a nice sturdy work pace with a high level of production going on. I learned how to adapt to a fast pace environment with forklifts with small areas to work with operating a squeeze clamp. good co- workers management was a little difficult .hardest part of the job was to find the material needed..the most enjoyable part of the job was receiving trucks in it usually went fast.
Mig Welder (Former Employee) – Carol Stream, IL – January 29, 2014
I learned how to read blueprints better, an got better on different welding positions. My supervisor was ok. He really didn't know to much about welding, but my co workers were nice an a joy to be around they made the workplace fun. The hardest part of my job was welding the big 6ft and 10ft covers. I was welding galvanized steel.
Quality Technician (Former Employee) – Holland, MI – December 1, 2013
It was one of those places you liked getting up and going to every day.
I learned most of my quality in CMM here and how to work with different types of people. But the management took the time to know your name, and supported the needs to give the people the tools they needed to do the job
Inventory Control (Former Employee) – Nampa, ID – February 12, 2013
The local management is EXCELLENT. However, the coroporate people are political and all about power. The micromanage too many aspect. When my position was "eliminated" the HR manager immediately applied at another company and left Hart & Cooley. I was the last straw for her as she saw others like myself who were excellent employees who were let go.
The corporate people have no trust in the people at the local level. It was one of the reasons why the former plant manager, ... ..., left the company.
My then supervisor and the current plant manager are good people.
