Graphic Artist (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 22, 2018
If you are a graphic design, dont work here. This place is a joke, You have to worry about points (if you come a min late or just taking a PTO day you get points). You are all was stressed everyday when you go to work.

Flexible hours. Pay and mileage reimbursement low
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLAugust 17, 2018
Hours are flexible but pay and reimbursement for mileage is low. Great co-workers . Employment is part-time and follows county school calendar. I would recommend this job for mothers with small children or retirees.
Pros
Part-time, flexible hours
Cons
A lot of wear and tear on personal vehicle

Good local mgmt/bad corporate support

Corporate very slow to respond to needs at Plant locations. Local management very good. Much turnover at Corporate level. New corporate values preached but they don't apply to every employee.

Great place to work with mix of new and old.
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Champaign, ILAugust 11, 2018
I love it here. The management team is great. They go out of their way to speak with us everyday and keep us informed of what is going on. Those that do their job well are recognized for the work they do. It's a breath of fresh air from years before the current group when you never heard how you were doing or poor behavior was accepted. There are some old timers that don't like change, but most people here really love it and that's why they stay.

Good place to work
Bindery Worker (Current Employee) –  Edwardsville, KSJuly 16, 2018
Herff is a great place to work and has such a great staff and environment. Only thing I would say I dislike is that there aren't very many openings for a full time; year around position very often.

Traveling was the best part

Traveling and working with reps was the best part. Was able to create great relationships that helped me do my job. The culture could have been better but it all changed when we were bought.

Great co-workers but poor management
Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Champaign, ILJune 14, 2018
It was such a great place to work at and can still be, but the new management totally ruins it with the micro-managing and the lack of communication between managers and employees. You can move up the chain and gain experience only so far. You can be the most hardworking person, but it all doesn’t matter, because they’ll choose to hire a (degree over experience) any day. Which really shows with the amount of new hires consistently leaving between 1-2 years of employment at HJ manufacturing division. Been here for a decade and seen so many good long time employees resigning due to the management, Taking their knowledge, experiences and contacts with them, straight to the competition. They are feeling undervalued and unappreciated. Destroying the moral and motivations of others. People are not leaving HJ they are leaving their managers. Your work place should be your second home.

One of the hardest thing I have ever done working in this plant is having to work with management that are not cut out to be leaders.
Pros
co-workers, hours, pay
Cons
management, health insurances, 401k

Safe and very friendly place to work for!
Monogrammer (Current Employee) –  Champaign, ILMay 29, 2018
Fun but fast paced work that made the day go by. The work environment was a very friendly and comfortable place to work in. The managerial part is a little unorthodox and confuaing but everything there is done for a reason. Overall a great place to work at though.

2nd job
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMay 21, 2018
Mirco manage to the extreme. They never give you 24 hour notice of over time. They will let you an hour before end of shift. If for what ever reason you cant stay you get a verbal warning. Shouldn't not be your only job maybe a 2nd job or beginning work history.

Yearbook Layout Typist
Yearbook Layout Typist (Former Employee) –  Gettysburg, PAMay 7, 2018
I had three little children and I worked from home. I would go to Herff Jones Yearbook Company to pick up the work. Using my computer at home, would type all of the information from the schools and include Herff Jones publishing codes, copy it onto a floppy disk and return it to Herff Jones. They would run it through there computers to print out the yearbook.
Pros
Worked from home

Fun for those with teaching background.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  VAApril 28, 2018
Loved the school environment/culture/climate. I don't recommend those without a teaching background for this position. Must be appreciative of teachers/teaching. Those who want to "sell and run" won't last long in this environment.
Pros
Indpendence
Cons
Cut throat

Lost all management that cared about Herff Jones, Sales reps get no support or have to wait long periods of time, Those left at the Indianapolis campus are overworked and under appreciated

Productive, fun, a lot of travel from school to school
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Wilmington, NCMarch 9, 2018
I've learned a lot about being a sales and service rep. The manager is awesome to work for. You travel a lot to different schools located in NC and SC selling graduation supplies. The hardest part of the job is sometimes it can get really busy trying to assist customers in a timely manner. However, I truly enjoy meeting and talking with the students and parents, The end results of seeing them smile after they have purchased their products is such a good feeling.
Pros
great management, great team of co-workers
Cons
hours can be long sometimes

Sales Associate Rep (Current Employee) –  Woodland Hills, CAFebruary 21, 2018
Exiting people, happy people. You get to travel, winter and summers there are no work. You work with schools, you are helping students. The company isn't technologically savvy.
Pros
The culture of the job is great, the experience is great
Cons
They are behind technology wise
