Job Work/Life Balance
Good workplace and friendly atmosphere.
Medical Claims Technician (Former Employee), Hastings, MI – May 20, 2015
Pros: Excellent on site cafeteria, free coffee, hot tea, iced tea and Crystal Light, on site fitness center, company sponsored weight loss and fitness classes
Cons: Small town has limited salary for most lower level employees.
I liked working at Hastings Mutual. Many of my co-workers were rather stuffy, and long time employees who were very set in their ways. Lots of turn over in the claims department within the last year – more... or so have had people on edge. A large number of supervisors in various areas of the claims department have recently retired or found other employment, so there is uncertainty as well as opportunity in the company. All in all it's a comfortable place to work, and the small town atmosphere is great. – less
Claims (Former Employee), Hastings, MI – February 8, 2014
Pros: good friendships with co-workers
Cons: healthcare sucks, absolutely no communication from upper management, be prepared for lots of drama & you will feel like you are back in high school
I thoroughly enjoyed my job until new management and VP's came in and switched everything up. You are told they want to retain their employees and there is room for advancement but that is a line of crock. – more... They already know who they want for the opening and they make you feel like a fool, they will bring a hoard of upper management people into the company from out of state or another big company and switch the HMIC culture and run things differently. The environment is toxic and your job really isn't secure anymore. That company is all about who you know and not what you know. – less
HR Generalist (Current Employee), Hastings, MI – May 8, 2013
I have worked here for three years and truly appreciate the professional atmosphere that also stresses work-life balance and allows me flexibility when I need it. The people here are great, everyone is friendly and helpful.
Laid back but hard to move up within the company depending on your field
Electronic Documents Processor (Current Employee), Hastings, MI – June 1, 2012
It's mostly who you know not what you know. People can be friendly but some senior members can be major micromanagers and even depending on your gender, this can become a problem. Lots of thoughtless dull work
