Most co workers are friendly and easy going
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Canton, OHSeptember 18, 2018
You rotate assembly positions every 5 weeks so that you are able to perform all positions and it keeps you from getting bored.
the normal work week is Monday tho Friday with weekends being over time and optional
One of the hardest parts of the job was the fact that rules changed daily.
you only receive paid holidays and benefits if you are hired in at a full time position.
when you are placed as a temp. you have the impression that you will become full time.
Pros
Monday through Friday work schedule
Cons
you don't get credit for your work or perks unless you are full time

Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Lebanon,kyAugust 23, 2018
Poor management. Used to be highest paid factory in town. Now you can work at other places and make more money. They started a pay tier system that has screwed over everybody. If your a quality worker go somewhere else.

Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) –  Canton, OHJuly 25, 2018
Excellent place to get experience. you learn a lot. a typical day starts with checking your yesterdays work. the manager makes sure you get enough work to keep you busy, i don't think you can ever get free time at work.
Pros
hard work, keep your busy

Management is a joke
Packer (Current Employee) –  Kendallville, INApril 14, 2018
Fun place to work in 2013. Downhill since then. Poor management everywhere top to bottom. Favoritism is rampant and equal pay for equal work is nonexistent. Low starting wage takes ten years to get top pay. Turnover rate is ridiculous for a so called world class facility.
Pros
Good benefits and fairly easy work
Cons
Poor management. Stressful atmosphere

Assembly Line Leader (Former Employee) –  Clarksville, TNApril 6, 2018
Great company to work for. They are the undisputed leader of their industry so work is steady. Great culture. They allow music on the shop floor (reasonable volume and radio edited). Straight 8 shifts. NO MANDATORY OVERTIME. Instead, they choose to offer time and a half over 40 and double time over 50. 11 paid holidays a year. 2 weeks vacation per year (pro rated first year). 3 weeks after 5 years.
Pros
No mandatory overtime and straight shifts.
Cons
none.

Lift Driver (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INApril 1, 2018
I worked the paint line at Hendrickson. Not a bad place to work. I was temp, so I did not receive any benefits. So I wouldn't be able to discuss. Fairly easy and straight forward job.

PAINTER (Former Employee) –  Lebanon, INMarch 30, 2018
I worked there for over 5 years before I left. I need up coming back 2 years later and it has really taken a nose dive. Granted they are going through a lot of in house expansion an construction. So hopefully once thats all done it'll be back to being an great place to work at. even if the salary is low for the hard work that is required.
Pros
Great fair place to work.
Cons
Not enough pay and benefits for the work required.

Great place to work, won’t move up in company.
Operator (Current Employee) –  Elizabethtown, KYFebruary 27, 2018
Was told to apply for a team lead position, only to lose to a man who has been on workers comp. for 2 months. I was told it was a very close decision between me and him. They picked him because he was with Hendrickson half a month before I was. They did not take in that he has been gone for 2 months.

ok place if you really need a job
Production Worker/Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Lebanon, KYJanuary 26, 2018
used to be the best place in town and surrounding counties to work. the last few yrs it has went down hill. Management sits in office and watches cameras instead of walking the floor talking to employees. you work 7 days a weeks 6 of those days are 12hr days.. Very low wages for the work. equipment doesn't work as it should.. you cant use vacation time unless you put in 6 months ahead of time or it benefits the company
Pros
free meals several times a yr..
Cons
health insurance is expensive for the coverage. long hrs and poor management and low wages

it is a good place to weld. Some supervisors are good and some need work. Pay is ok but never got the chance to move up. You do keep busy. you have to be flexible.
Pros
good welding
Cons
lack of leadership for some people
