Human Resources and Operations Assistant (Former Employee) –  Arden, NCJune 23, 2019
Appreciated the hard workers in our distribution warehouse and felt connected to them. Management personnel were considerate of hourly and salaried personnel. No advancement opportunity.

Liars and cheats
Caster, Shipping, Receiving (Former Employee) –  Lenoir City, TNJune 21, 2019
Hubbell is a dirty job. Once you walk in the door, the dust and fumes you breathe in will deteriorate your health. The casting position will tear you apart from the insides. 10 hour days and mandatory 20 hours of overtime. If you don't speak Spanish, forget it. If you're over weight, you can drive the forklift around in a disorganized mess of a yard, bouncing loads off uneven cement filled with potholes. Any information obtained by management will be used against you in ridicule. If you have a smile on your face, they will work you til it falls off. Two 15 min breaks and a 30 min lunch isn't enough time to relax from the work load. Try some dusty food from the break room 'store'. If you work in the office doing paperwork, only if you're lucky, you'll be expected to multitask until 'the wheels fall off the bus'. There are some real brown nosers that work there and can make your 60 hours unbearable. Two faced management that ask how they can help and the next day you're canned for 'preformance and attitude'. The men that work for Hubbell are cheating pigs, so don't be a girl. Hubbell is also based in Mexico.
Pros
Dust, high visibility clothing, brown nosers, poor training, broken equipment, hot and cold work environment
Cons
Management, spanish speaking, hours worked, cancerous environment

Union shop that will fight for anyone, regardless of work ethic.
Supervisor Distribution Center 2nd Shift (Former Employee) –  Centralia, MOJune 21, 2019
You'd think that would be a good thing but if u are a hard worker and have employee's standing around watching u work and supervisor is a pansy, it really stinks. Almost forces you to join the losers. Then when a stand around finally makes management mad enough to fire, the union will take it all the way to arbitrator for a bad worker. Everytime. Union is scared to get sued by employee's b/c its happened before. Supervisors are overworked. H.R. is non existent, supes have to do all H.R. for each of their employees. I had 24 under my charge and it was the fastest paced, crazy struggle to get everything done and keep team motivated. Then I was fired for upsetting a female worker by making her work. She went to HR with a lie and thats all it takes. If u cant prove otherwise that something didnt happen and the person is a good actor and convincing, you're toast.
Pros
None
Cons
FMLA is abused regularly by many employees

Mold Fabrication (Former Employee) –  Lenoir City, TNJune 10, 2019
too much going on for the size of the plant not enough space for anything. Management does not have a clue of what it takes to do your job and they don't really care. Very hot in the summer and cold in the winter

Assembler in 4019 (Former Employee) –  Centralia, MOJune 7, 2019
They work their employees 26 days straight with only two days off then work u another 26 days straight. They have no understanding of letting someone build up to their rates. They make their employees feel like a piece of trash. They try to cover up the way the work. They don’t give their employees a descent breaks and they say you can’t go anywhere for your lunch which is only twenty minutes. They say they give heat breaks but they don’t do that either. Don’t waste your time with this company.
Cons
Sweat shop

It was probably the best place that I ever worked. The corporate atmosphere was often difficult, but the benefits were excellent and the salary was the best I ever had.
Pros
We received free meals, We had numerous breaks during our shifts.

Production Planner Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Arden, NCMay 2, 2019
Most people have been there many years and are promoted from within. Senior plant management is verbally abusive of staff. Staff under him are afraid to say anything.

Management are not well trained or educated.

There is little opportunity for advancement at the plant level.

Seriously, please don't bother
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Arden, NCMarch 31, 2019
I can completely see why this company cannot keep employees! I overheard the supervisor on 2nd shift calling another employee a very derogatory name to another supervisor. I couldn't believe it, this was a level of unprofessionalism I had never seen! He was only on the floor until the warehouse manager left for the day and would even tell his people that the manager was still there and to look busy. After he left, the supervisor would stay in his office all night and couldn't care less what went on, always an excuse why he couldn't do anything. No enforcement of the rules whatsoever....there were people on cell phones, people leaving without clocking out, leads going outside to smoke, it was a complete joke. Work was not hard, decent pay for what you did and certainly not much was expected of you.
Pros
Nothing was expected of you
Cons
Management and supervision needs an overhaul badly

everyone is out for themselves
Inventory Control Specialist (Current Employee) –  Ontario, CAMarch 31, 2019
Poor management break corporate and OSHA rules all the time. Cheat to win mentality. Good old boys club where only they benefit. Everyone is out for themselves. All employees are paid the same only supervisors and management make living wage. Only way to get ahead is to suck up to management hard work goes unrecognized. Temps get paid weekly while permanent employees get paid every two weeks. Temps make more than perms. Nothing happens to rule breakers in fact the are rewarded for their treachery. Management tries to intimidate when they are in the wrong, to get their way. Love to advance people of a certain race they usually get fast tracked.
Pros
Excellent benefits
Cons
Pay, hours, advancement, management, confidentiality

Currently employed (Current Employee) –  Arden, NCMarch 28, 2019
Worst place to work. Feels like prison. Supervisors lie and you always need to watch your back. If you are a temp be aware that management will use you for three months and drop you... making any excuse they can.

It's a job that you can make into what you want it to be
Product Engineering Manager (Current Employee) –  Leeds, ALMarch 25, 2019
If you're looking for perks and a fun modern work environment, it's not for you. It's a typically 40 hr a week job and your perk is that, your check, and a good work/life balance. It has high turnover that gets overlooked by upper management because a lot of the profitable product is commodity items so "the numbers" stay good. With that being said,due to a lack of people and high turnover you can get some good opportunities early in your career. Most of the high performers who get promoted through the ranks are people who have only worked at Hubbell. Hubbell either burns you out or promotes you to a position where tthe title you have and experience you're getting are hard to leave even if the compensation is low to average. People who come to Hubbell from outside of Hubbell tend to leave quickly. They've seen better elsewhere and just don't want to deal with bad management and a lack of foresight that seems to be constantly shown with a "we've always done it this way" mentality that comes from the majority of management being the only constant due to high turnover below management level.
