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

The benefits and pay were good
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

Repetitive

Good pay very poor managment

Pros
Good pay
Cons
Bad manegment and favoritism

HP Hood was great until the plant closed
Working Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lynnfield, MADecember 18, 2017
HP Hood was a great place to work thought I would retire from this job but the plant closed because of operation cost in Boston. Working in the cold storage chest was hard work but you felt good when the work day was done.

cut throat environment where every driver is out for themself
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Agawam, MADecember 17, 2017
Management is social but does nothing to change issues experienced by driver. Long hours with a heavy workload. The rotating schedule is the only plus to working at this company. If you don't mind leaving before the world wakes up and having to go to sleep when most get home from work.When you are home having to sleep the entire day away to catch up this could be the job for you.
Pros
rotating schedule, compensation is decent
Cons
long hours, heavy product, very physical

Besides good pay, benefits, and a good location, I will stick to what my momma told me. "If you aint got nothin nice to say, then don't say anything at all".

Little job satisfaction
Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) –  Agawam, MANovember 13, 2017
Drivers in Agawam, MA are paid a salary based on 11 hrs/day 4days/wk. Overtime due to breakdowns,traffic,stop delays or added stops is only partially compensated and quite often not compensated at all. The fast pace and brutal work lead to a high rate of turnover. Communication is poor, equipment is substandard, issues are addressed slowly if at all, and drivers are not respected. Good benifit package.
