ok place to work
Fork Lift Operator (Former Employee) –  Lenoir City, TNFebruary 6, 2017
Upper management is horrible at the plant in Lenoir City, TN. Ground Floor managment and personel are effective and very good to work with. I enjoyed my job as a forklift operator in shipping department.

Lousy Sales Management
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 2, 2017
One of the worse experiences in my professional career. Immediate supervisor was a micro manager who was scared of his boss and wouldn't leave me/other sales reps alone. Very unprofessional atmosphere.
Pros
None to speak of.
Cons
District manager in Atlanta.

Foundry Specialist (Former Employee) –  Leeds, ALJanuary 23, 2017
As far as culture is concerned, there really isn't one. You are there to work, and go home. While every day isn't terrible, there are certain aspects that, in my opinion, dehumanize people. The environment is extremely hot/cold depending on the season, and you are expected to work 8-11 hours on average in these conditions. Your breaks are limited and short. Any time away from workstations is highly scrutinized (even for restroom visits).

In my opinion, MOST (not all) supervisors within this plant do not care about their employees. The use of foul language, and raised voices often happens amongst those out on the work floor.

The bottom line: this company is about profit. You are there to make them money, and that's how they make you feel; however, in the process of doing that, you can make yourself some money if you find the right department and position.
Pros
A consistent Schedule, decent wages, plenty of overtime opportunities.
Cons
Poor management, poor HR department, repetitive/redundant daily life. Healthcare has high deductibles, but decent network.

union horrible for non union/ great for union
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Centralia, MOJanuary 10, 2017
horrible upper management - no communication and the union runs the show. might as well not have middle management and just let union be the managers of the department. when an employee can run to the union and not talk to the manager at all - why waste money on a manager.

Great if you are a union employee - you can lie, steal, harass and still have a job.
Pros
decent pay
Cons
communication - lack of control of employees

1 year at Hubbell Inc
Sourcing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Greenville, SCDecember 31, 2016
I loved working at Hubbell. It was a great job, I learned a lot. I was hired as a temp though and wish I would have gotten hired on permanently, but they down-sized. That is one of the negative aspects of a big corporation.

They get in big orders hire mass amount of people
Grinder/Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  VirginiaNovember 4, 2016
They are a disgrace and need to be reported to every possible board, government agency, reporter. They get in a huge order hire 100-200 or more people let them work a week or so and then they get the order filled so then they fire almost everyone who was hired. They give them no reason why they are fired. They do it this way so if you stay a little while they have 90 days to kick you to the streets and then you can not even qualify for unemployment. Keep what ever job you have and dont rely on this one to be loyal to you and your family!!!!!

They work you like a dog.
Packing/assembly/spot welding /cycle counter (Former Employee) –  Freeburg, ILJuly 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.
Pros
Good place to get promoted if you're lazy, and like kissing butt
Cons
Work on a "point" system, very poor management
