Pros: most employees are great to work with
Cons: benefits, salary, and lack of respect within departments
If you are considering a career at Norgren in Michigan think twice.
While most people are great, the management team especially HR management is terrible.
Hours are long and toward then end of each month you can expect to work over time salary or not.
Norgren has certain dollar amounts that are set each month and with the poor planning in jobs this just leaves most departments struggling to pull parts in and get jobs/parts out on time. Purchasing, Manufacturing, and Shipping all suffer at the end of each month.
There is no structure or training when you come on board; it's basically a sink – more... or swim situation.
HR management states they are there for you however this is not true. When you try to speak to them about work issues or problems with coworkers you are made to be the issue. It's sad and unfortunate that the one department you should be able to count on you cannot. This is only true for HR management. The assistants are fantastic.
The Supply Chain management is also terrible. There is no support and you can ask for better training or resources to do your job efficiently until you are blue in the face however when you don't receive that support and things go down hill you are blamed.
I enjoyed my job but towards the end with the lack of support and the unwillingness to see that the department was struggling it was time to go. I left my job due to poor HR and Supply Chain management.
I took pride in my job and most of the people I worked with were fantastic. However when you don't have the support you need from upper management or the HR department to see that a manager is not a good fit and causes 3 people to leave within a month something is wrong.
Also HR management is never forthcoming with internal job postings. If applying for a position you should be informed of all the specifics such as salary etc. while you are going through the interview process NOT after. The incompetence of this department never ceases to amaze the employees and unfortunately it is always a running joke.
It's a shame that this company allows good people to leave. People really do care about doing their jobs well but unfortunately this company does not care. They should really think twice before they let another asset walk out the door in the future. – less
