Company is a joke
Vacation Relief (Former Employee) –  New York StateAugust 26, 2018
Constantly looking over shoulder to see who was gonna throw you under the bus next. Training sucks, Management is complete joke, only want to make themselves look good. Some Supervisors don't even know what they are doing.

Dairy Processor (Former Employee) –  Concord, NHAugust 20, 2018
I do not have any comment for this section. Management is made up of mostly people that have been there a long time. They are very set in their ways. There really aren't any work instructions so it is "Watch & Learn"

Operated Filler (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAAugust 17, 2018
Filling your machine with paper for production while running the filling machine for production orders. Everything is based on quality check in order to proceed to the next step. You have manage your time and do things on a timely manner. Due to working on night shift I didn't have to deal with management. The workplace culture is not the best but not the worst like everywhere there's certain kind of politics.
Pros
good pay
Cons
not flexible work place

It was once a great company
Route Driver (Former Employee) –  Chareledtown, Ma. Tauntin Ma. And Concord, NHJune 24, 2018
I worked as a route driver for 18 yrs. It was a great company when they were located in Charlestown, Ma. But after they closed that plant and moved a bunch of routes to Taunton, Ma it started it's downfall. When I transfered to Concord NH it was a whole new workplace and it was really bad. The management don't give a rats A about you and they are so cheep as far as compensating you for OT. If you are a young guy do yourself a favor and go elsewhere unless you like being a brown noser.
Pros
Working by yourself
Cons
Hours, pay, and management

Maintenance Parts and Purchasing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Winchester, VAApril 12, 2018
The job was very stressful. Advancement for women was difficult. Pay and benefits were good. The attendance policies are very strict. Be prepared to work regardless of weather or health.

Great Place to Work
Strategic Sourcing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Lynnfield, MAMarch 29, 2018
HP Hood is a great place to work with a culture that is unique. Employees here rarely leave so it is difficult to land a job at the corporate office. It is common to have people here for 30-40 years so we call them "lifers". In away it is a good thing but in another way it is a bad thing. The bad thing is that they do not know how things are done in other companies. There has recently been a hiring boom and the few lucky people that have come aboard, like me, have witnessed the old timers suffer a culture shock.

Alot of turn over
Route & Transport Driver (Former Employee) –  Concord NHMarch 8, 2018
Salary based, you work more than your paid for. They nit pick about everything. Example like if you are 5 miles an hour over the speed limit. They have forward and rear facing cameras to watch you and they critique you on everything. If they left you alone to do your job would be not a bad place to work. Trucks are supposed to be governed at 63 miles per hour but some trucks are governed less than that. They are always short-staffed on drivers which puts additional work on to the other drivers. They constantly tell you they are getting more help that it's just temporary ...but the help Never Comes. I worked there for 2 years if your a smoker there is no smoking in the vehicles at all! No Bluetooth devices allowed while driving.
Pros
Good benefits, pay ok
Cons
Lots of unpaid hrs! Nit pick you to death on irrelevant things.

Poorly managed
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Oneida, NYMarch 7, 2018
Drama
you work harder they want more
supervisors don't listen
Cover your @$$constantly
trust no one
I mind my own business which didn't work so if you get a job here a really close relationship with management will keep above everyone else also if your a woman you have it made. if your a white male that works hard and minds his own they wont like you because they think you don't like them.
Pros
good pay
Cons
everything besides pay
