Difficult at best.
Sales rep (Current Employee) –  RemoteDecember 4, 2018
The best thing are the benefits. That is the only positive to this employer.

Management has very little respect for the team and it shows. Solid problems that are put forth are completely ignored. The general consensus is that the entire sales group is desperately trying to find new employment. They have been beaten down by nagging product issues and a broken operations department.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Management is awful.

Lowe's Distribution (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, FLNovember 21, 2018
New employees were often hired on and given very minimal training which almost always led to significant issues. There frequently wasn't enough product to fill orders on time, and no good process in place to work around it.

Facility Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 30, 2018
A typical day at HB Fuller consisted of lots of meetings and busy environment. The company itself, or the people I dealt with, were great, but the facility itself was pitiful and honestly gross.
Pros

Cons
environment and failing building

Work can be light and heavy
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Edison, NJOctober 14, 2018
A typical day can result in a very steady work environment or it can be prolonged given missing product for specific orders. The hardest part of the job is doing double work because someone did not properly do their own part, while the easiest is completing the orders in a timely fashion. Learned how to work an RF scanner along with computer assignments such as printing labels for orders. All in all was a decent place to work and gain experience in the Warehouse industry.
Pros
Overtime pay, consistent work days
Cons
Communication, missing products

Shipping Clerk II (Former Employee) –  Gainesville, FLSeptember 18, 2018
This is a good place to work. Unfortunately, the company was outbid on a huge contract and lost that business which caused the company to have to downsize.

Terrible job that will treat you like dirt and throw you away!
Production Operator II (Current Employee) –  Walker, MISeptember 18, 2018
This is a terrible job for a lot of reasons. The biggest reason of all is it is a waste of time. You will be worked hard, and constantly blamed. They have had 4 plant managers in the last 3 years so that there tells you something. It has been a roller coaster, and almost no one stays longer than a year. The only reason you would want to stay is if you are friends with management, then you are set for a while. HR protects bad management, and management keeps getting recycled every couple years. This place is toxic, and does not appreciate good employees. There has been a problem retaining good talent, because the motivation is just not there. Why would you stay somewhere that treats their employees like dirt? If you work production, you will constantly be treated like you're experience and knowledge don't matter. This job is perfect for someone that wants to constantly let down, dreams shattered, promotions denied for any reason that management can think of.
Pros
None
Cons
Low Pay, No room for advancement, constant turnover, Dirty

Bottom line at the expense of employees.
Shared Services (Former Employee) –  Vadnais Heights, MNSeptember 10, 2018
HB Fuller is an established, stable Minnesota company. Until recently there was little turnover with employees, as the working conditions and benefits were mostly desirable. Employees were treated with respect, and were allowed to perform their duties without being micro-managed.
Pros
Flexible scheduling, allowing employees to work various hours and remotely, in many prositions.
Cons
Almost no training and career development. Often talked about, but never put into action.

The office help was always happy and everone got along.
Office Manager/Bookkeeper (Former Employee) –  Marlborough, MAAugust 27, 2018
H.B. Fuller is a great Company to work for. It has great benefits and
overall great Management.
I had learned how to manage most of the operations of any department, that left me with a lot of talent
sometimes it was stressful, especially if you need more help and the budget could not allow it. This makes you work a little smarter an wiser.

I am one of the GRATEFUL ones that worked for H.B.Fuller.

I am fully retired and enjoy the benefits that Fuller gave me.
Pros
special birthdays and lunches for the office, time off if needed

Receptionist/Data Entry (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ILAugust 17, 2018
Great place to work with competitive salary. At one point I was forced into a position that I did not apply to. Though I didn't like entering orders all day because I am a people person, I did gain experience. I enjoyed the vast majority of my coworkers. Everyone was helpful and courteous.

Technical Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Vadnais Heights, MNAugust 15, 2018
There are a lot of good chemists and people that work here. Many of them are hard working and do the best they can to make sure the company meets their stated goals. Sometimes the life work balance is not the best.

will look great on your resume but not a permanent place for a career
Lab Technician (Current Employee) –  GeorgiaJuly 31, 2018
This place has bad management. Operators are fun to work with, but management doesn't have a clue what's going on. Management doesn't have the ability to lead nor drive the team. They only deliver information from their upper management. They only want to manage people NOT lead people. They make us work on saturday. If you don't, you will get an occurrence. Plant manager doesn't do what he/she says. The management doesn't know how to use talents.
Pros
fun operators
Cons
work 6 days/wk or get an occurrence

PLANNING MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Aurora, ILJuly 10, 2018
If you work hard you can have a real impact on the company- employees are engaged and work hard. If you bring forward ideas your voice can be heard. A Lot of opportunity for advancement.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Sometimes work life balance is tricky
