They work you like a dog.
Packing/assembly/spot welding /cycle counter (Former Employee) – Freeburg, IL – July 13, 2016
I would definitely not recommend Hubbell - Wiegmann for a place of employment. I worked there for 23 years, and recently left there on my own accord. You will be working 6 days a week if you're a union employee. You never know from day to day if you're working 10 hours, or 9 1/2, or 9, or 8 1/2, or 8, or less than 8. They're very good for telling people within the last 15 to 30 minutes of the day that the employees need to stay over on their shift. Factory work is more stressful than you would think. The company employees tell the union workers to send out a product, knowing full well that said product isn't up tp quality standards. So the product gets returned and employees get their butt chewed for sending out poor quality work, when it was a company person who made them send it out in the first place. They don't keep their employees well equipped with the proper tools and supplies that are needed to finish a work order. Constantly running out of supplies! It's extremely hot in the summer, and they only supply workers with bags of ice because the two ice machines they have cannot keep up with the two hundred employees. And you only get the ice if the outside temperature is 95 degrees by a certain time of day. If it only hits 94 degrees, you're on your own. Not to mention the fact that it's approximately 10 degrees higher in the plant than it is outside during the summer due to all of the ovens. If you're really desperate for a job, it's better than nothing. Or if you want to work your way up the ladder by kissing butt, then it could be the place for you.
Good place to get promoted if you're lazy, and like kissing butt
Work on a "point" system, very poor management
