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

No work life balance if you're on the production side of the facility. Expected to drop everything and come in if needed on your days off.

Molding TPM project leader (Former Employee) –  Vega Baja, PRJuly 8, 2015
Every day had to reconnect the closed loops recycling systems. I learned how to interact with vendors. Management did not have the will to implement discipline to the workers. The vast majority of my co-workers wanted to do the least amount of work possible. The most difficult part of my job was dealing with un-disciplined and ungrateful employees.

The company has been around for a long time. Constantly bringing in or acquiring new companies to build the brand. The workforce is it's most valuable asset.

Awful Place to work!
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Aiken, SCDecember 6, 2014
This was absolutely the worst job I have ever had. The management at this place treats their employees awful. They only care about how much work they can get out of the employees. They don't talk to the employee's with respect. You are just a number at Hubbell Power Systems.
Pros
non
Cons
everything

Laid off twice
Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Centralia, MODecember 6, 2014
I would think twice before working for this company. Every time the stock price drops, the company begins another round of layoffs. Every October 1st was viewed as a time to begin layoffs in the office and then moving into the factory for additional layoffs. This is a cutthroat company that only has the bottom line in sight. I worked there the first 5 years as a regular employee, got caught up in an October round of layoffs and was called back as a contractor over a year later, only to be terminated once again in a January 2nd round of "we are not renewing any contracts for our own contractors".

Again, think twice!!!
Pros
it was a job while it lasted.
Cons
management style, too many layoffs living under chopping block
