Group Leader (Former Employee) – Muscatine, IA – October 2, 2018
Worked with lots of good people on the shop floor and in lower and mid level management. Direction from high level management was minimal and infrequent. MCR was not good to the members, more like a second management team interfering in daily operations.

some anagment issues causes a hold on career advancment, and making you do more work than what your pay rate is for
Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Muscatine, IA – August 9, 2018
When you have an idea, it doesn't matter. If you have anything to add, it doesn't matter. You're doing well? You're average. Backstabbing culture is the norm. Unless you pucker up, you won't last long.
Customer Master Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Muscatine, IA – July 23, 2018
I started in Customer Support before moving to MDM. CS was very had and demanding. Really hard and frustration work but helped me to learn the company. I stuck with it and moved to HNI and felt a whole new side to the office. My manager was awesome, I worked really well with my immediate team. At times things were stressful but I knew I could count on my team and manager to have each other’s backs. I knew that if I worked hard I could continue to advance and had the support of my manager to grow and learn new skills.
Wharehouse work. Would not recommended working here.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – United States – June 16, 2018
Many sisters companies. New York location. Worked between warehouse, shipping recieving, hardware makes and hardware distribution production and can honestly recommend if you work in these particular areas know that you will be taking on more responsibilities with very and i mean very low pay. At only 10 to 11 dollars an hour i have wasted an entire year of my life putting in the effort. You will note reviews of management and engeneers as positive feedback. but between all other locations you will not be paid well enough to survive on your own comfortably. You will be doing the actual work physical action of moving things. People seemed happier in upolstry but i cannot speak for them.
Little to no warning of overtime and how long you are required to stay.
Assembly is hard on the body and management only cares about 1st shift
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) – Muscatine, IA – April 12, 2018
As an assembly line worker from the day you start and every day you work on the line your body will be in some type of pain, it just depends on the job. Of course your body will adjust to it, but it will always be there. Management doesn't care about each department/line equally. Some lines get all the attention, all the new employees, and all the updates while others are stuck struggling and not getting the recognition they deserve. Management will shut down the "unimportant" lines and have those people move to the "important" lines to work or they will flat out just take people from the struggling lines so they struggle even more. 1st shift is not held to the same standard of goals or organization as second shift, 1st shift also has twice as many workers as 2nd shift but 2nd shift is still expected to hit the same numbers.
Co workers, easy jobs to learn
Short breaks, unfair standards between shifts, department/line favoritism
Line Operator (Former Employee) – Muscatine, IA – March 14, 2018
Fast pace. Hired as a welder and told at orientation there were no openings for welder. Got put on a line. Not very well compensated for the effort. Have to get on a good line with good workers or you don't get the benefits
Many customer orders were not filled, even orders received 5 months early. This left schools with no furniture when school started. Production and management did not seem to care and when customers (dealers) called, production would not even give customer service and expected date to tell customers when they might receive their furniture. Customer service had to make things up to tell customers. Management did not care either.
