Benefits were very good! I love purchasing, receiving, working with vendors. I enjoy Completing IR, GR and PO creation. Enjoyed price comparison between vendors, finding the best quality for the best price. Also, leading new inventions.
They were deceptive from start. Offered me salary much less than what was advertised. Healthcare premiums very expensive, $1500/month.
Turned out managers weren't really there based upon qualifications or experience, but rather just seniority and having been in company for while. So when existing manager left, someone else was found and promoted into that role, regardless if they actually had experience as manager.
Performance reviews were extremely subjective and evaluation criteria were never disclosed upon hiring. A lot of these were made up on spot when reviews were done. If your manager was sick or in bad mood that day, your reviews would be negative.
good view of city, lots of lunch options within walking distance
cut-throat environment, no collaboration with others, lots of in-fighting between departments, discriminatory - seems women & minorities fired most
I recommend this company. Unfortunately I was laid off however I hold no hard feelings as I greatly enjoyed my tenor, fellow colleagues and the experience as a whole! Also I received a fair compensation exit package so that always helps. If you're looking to work with great people give them a try.
I was dedicated always on time and never missed a day....was fired for something I didn't do ..and that something was so minor...I believe they wanted to pay someone less for what I did.....so they found a reason to for me ...I loved my job and was dedicated ..so I feel they are all about the money nor the people ..they really screwed me.....and I am trying to be nice ...I have more to say but ..I won't ...thank you...
Working at Hathaway Manor, I have gained a successful experience of what it's like to have a "first job"; however, the work environment is frustrating at times. Management is also confused from time to time but other than that, not an awful place to work.
Company provides numerous benefits to both new and existing agents. Tons of on-going training provided to maximize your success. Commission split for new agents can be difficult to work with, but company-paid benefits tend to cancel out.
Berkshire Hathaway has been a great company that provided excellent benefit. Unfortunately, this company shut down in South Florida and relocated in North Carolina, and I was not able to move out with it. It was great experience working at Berkshire Hathaway.
Berkshire is a good starting company. Unfortunately the wages are not competitive to other companies in the market. When you can start out at the competition making more than you left this company with after several years. There is something wrong with the company. No scholarship programs that are geared to all employees. Only minorities get a full ride scholarship. Which is great for them, but does not help anyone else when you are working for less than $11.00 an hour. Raises tend to be between 1 to 3 percent and you start out at $10.08 an hour. And raises are once a year. The one good thing is your PTO time. They start you right away with PTO, but If you are sick they apply the PTO to your absence and you are also given a black mark for missing work. Raises were terrible, vey few advancement jobs. And a lot of promises of advancement that never happened. Customers could be very difficult.
Floor managers overall were pretty good.
PTO starts after you are off your probation
Low pay, difficult customers, very little room for advancewment
Berkshire Hathaway is a great place to work because of the people. Top notch in recruiting the right people who work well together as a team. Management is very hands on, and always available to assist. You won't find any cut throat agents here. Everyone respects each other and treats each other like family. The hardest part about this job is not having stability in income, and no benefits.
This was my first office job. I enjoyed the work and the people I worked with. Only complaint was getting the time off if my kids were sick. If I didn't have to move for my husband's job, I would've stayed indefinitely.
Cafeteria credit, decent pay, EXCEPTIONAL benefits, a lot of family included extras, lots of employee e gagement
