Growing company that I can grow with.

Pretty good place to work, I can see myself moving up in the company. The group of co workers are good. I have learned about different metals and also why everyone needs to recycle metal.

From A Happy Harmon Employee

The companies strong vision for growth, their excellence in customer satisfaction and employee treatment are just 3 great reasons to work here. We are more like family then co-workers. The management is dedicated to you and listens. It's a great feeling when you like coming to work everyday. Harmon is a great place to work.

Good place to work

I like my job at Harmon. I’ve heard your lucky to get paid but I don’t know where that came from I’ve worked here for 2 years and never had an issue with my paycheck. I feel like I work hard and get paid for it. Everyone is respected and the new manager is great. Glad that changed here recently. Overall a good work environment and I plan to stay until I am not able to.

Worth working for

Nice company to work for. New management works well with employees. Their open to suggestions. Keeps up on the maintenance of equipment. Competitive pay, decent vacation time and decent hours - no weekends!!! I am pleased to work for this company, they appreciate your hard work.

New management is much better

Under new management team - people are respected and treated fairly. Changes being made that will greatly improve the business and morale of the team. Really like the direction of the company.

Don't

They promise that things will get fix but they don't. Tell when you get hired you "will" get a raise in 90 days and you might after asking about it for 2 or 3 months. No breaks. Even on day when it's over 100 degrees. They don't care at all about their employees. They didn't pay them last week and told them all it was the employees banks fault. I can go on and on.

Positive experience as a driver and management was great

Entire experience working there was positive. Workplace environment was casual and relaxed which I liked a lot. Worked an average of 40 hours a week which was perfect for my needs and created a good work/life balance for me. Management and dispatch there was excellent, they didn't micro-manage and I believe they were fair with the drivers as well. Good people to work for! Don't agree with all these negative reviews. If I hadn't retired from trucking I would still be working there.

Not the best place to work

They have an employee that threatens other drivers and managment does nothing about it. They tell you what you want to hear and don't follow through Equipment is run down and dangerous.

Empty promises. Lack of leadership etc.

The company is full of empty promises. They will promise raises, insurance, hrs and then not follow through with any of it. Worn out equipment, mainly because lack of maintenance. Constant problems with safety, management and more!

Pros

Pay you your full paycheck on fridays sometimes.

Cons

Liars, bad management, talk about growth but never work towards it.

Don’t let them lie to you

They are great at lying to you or bluffing to you. Management is pathetic and they will make plenty of promises but never follow through. Don’t even see how they stay in business with the turnover rate they have.
