Bad Management
Operator (Current Employee) –  Prescott, WIFebruary 12, 2018
Management is bad and getting worse. Don't plan on any promotions if you can't brown nose. Management are all on a buddy system. HR does not look out for the employees.
Pros
The work itself is ok
Cons
Horrible Management

A busy company with great employees, wish I could have stayed there. I learned how to operate a LIMS system, had a manager who was helpful and kind, and was glad I got to be a part of their team.

Chemical Batch Operator/Quality Control Technician (Current Employee) –  Archdale, NCDecember 17, 2017
Henkel as a whole is a great company to work for but certain locations are not as good as others and if you have never been to other locations you probably would not get the full Henkel experience.

Very long hours, decent pay, poor management, mandatory overtime
Full time operator (Current Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYDecember 3, 2017
Long hours leaves less time at home, but working two days on two days off makes up for it some. Management does not hold people very accountable. The job pays decent money and it is easy, but can be stressful at times. There is a lot of mandatory overtime, but pay is time and a half.

Mostly a great place to work
Extrusion Operator/Material Testing (Former Employee) –  Richmond, MONovember 9, 2017
The pay is great! There does tend to be a lot of overtime, but well worth it. It is fast paced, so you really have to move. I worked on overnights then switched to days and there was a huge difference. Overnight shift was firm, but if you needed help, supervisors were right there. They had a good sense of teamwork. Day shift was very vindictive, catty and spent most days playing the blame game. Supervisors talked down to employees and you had to be their buddy to even be seen as a person. All in all, for the pay, I would absolutely recommend Henkel.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
Poor management

Quality Control Technician (Current Employee) –  Richmond, MOSeptember 29, 2017
You would think from the company being corporate that they would treat their employees with more respect than they do. My boss in particular is unfair and just not very professional. That's saying it nicely. Its a job to feed your family and provide because it does pay decent and has decent benefits.

Cut throat and back stabbing.
Chemical Operator (Former Employee) –  Salisbury, NCSeptember 20, 2017
Henkel is probably not a bad company to work for but the local management in Salisbury has made it a horrible place to work. The impersonal and heartless attitude at which they deal with employees is appalling. They encourage back stabbing and reward selfish behavior.
Pros
Management is ignorant of the processes they manage.
Cons
Management is ignorant of the processes they manage.
