The culture at Herman Miller is quite different for hourly and salary.
Hourly paid are expected to work as if you are a volunteer slave. That is, you work very hard doing three or more people's job during the course of your workday. No time for a breath except during your scheduled breaks. The reason you do many different jobs is that you must keep busy no matter what. Herman Miller really gets their monies worth with production employees, low pay and hard labor.
Salary jobs are mostly stress-free if you are competent. The balance between work and home life is available if and when you need it. You are able to check your social media and make personal phone calls whenever you want just so long as you get your work done, which is far from a full plate.
Hourly jobs have been reduced to standardized work, meaning everyone does the same thing the same way. No longer does a production employee require an IQ over room-temperature. Salary jobs are better paid and more rewarding, more flexible for life's problems and come with advancement opportunities, unlike an hourly job where it is assumed that everyone doing those jobs are unable to think for themselves.
No air conditioning in production areas. Knee replacements are a given if you work in production.
