Good workplace and friendly atmosphere.
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 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.
