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

Do not work at this company

Worked at Herff Jones when it was an ESOP company. Sold.. Money over Employees. Terminated long time good employees. Toxic environment now. Stay away!
Pros
Loved working with my co-workers
Cons
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

Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Arcola, ILMarch 29, 2018
It's a fast paced warehouse job. You stay busy from morning til afternoon. Everybody is very nice and pretty helpful. The supervisors are really nice and train you how to do your position

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

Great Job culture
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

They are behind technology wise

So sad
Senior Director, Technology (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INFebruary 20, 2018
Executive leadership is driving the company into the ground and terrorizing the employees while they do it. Very bad experience with great people.

Five CIOs in a single year. What turmoil.

Easy, Collaborative Work Environment
Administrative (Former Employee) –  DeKalb, ILJanuary 22, 2018
For an office filled with women I was surprised at how well everyone worked together and pitched in when needed. No competition only collaboration.

At times I thought their systems and ways could have been more organized but they have been in business for decades so it works for them.

The manager/owner works hard and is very dedicated.
Pros
Easy, stress free
Cons
No benefits, seasonal

Regretful Experience
National Motivational Programs Manager (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 19, 2018
Too much change so quickly by new owners with no concept of how to run the business. Much better run when independent as an ESOP, but Varsity involvement was both misleading and unfortunate.

Artist (Former Employee) –  Edwardsville, KSJanuary 17, 2018
Working for Herff Jones will flesh out your comfort with various adobe products and will teach you how to engage with clients of all sorts. It also makes aware how much of an impact your file setup has on the printing process and will teach you how to get the most out of the press.
Pros
Pay rate and work load
Cons

Horrible corporate bog with real humility or human decency.
Pre Press Graphic Designer (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 7, 2018
Classic case of uninformed pretentious management making 80,000 a year while other employees make around 20,000. There is a palettable sense of disrespect from managemnet and expectations to commit to work life imbalance. Expendable is the main feeling I've had while working at this unhealthy corporation.
Pros
Some nice people
Cons
Disrespect from management, you will feel as though you are a cog and don't matter.
