Laborer (Former Employee) – Canton, OH – September 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.
Monday through Friday work schedule
you don't get credit for your work or perks unless you are full time
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Lebanon,ky – August 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.
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.
Packer (Current Employee) – Kendallville, IN – April 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.
Assembly Line Leader (Former Employee) – Clarksville, TN – April 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.
PAINTER (Former Employee) – Lebanon, IN – March 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.
Great fair place to work.
Not enough pay and benefits for the work required.
Operator (Current Employee) – Elizabethtown, KY – February 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.
Production Worker/Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Lebanon, KY – January 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
free meals several times a yr..
health insurance is expensive for the coverage. long hrs and poor management and low wages
