It’s a job

It’s a job. It’s better than nothing. A normal week is 50 hours Monday through Friday but they sometimes try for Saturday. Pay is pretty decent for most positions but some are really underpaid for the work that they do. The pay is done by grades 1-5. Long weeks and a too short weekend. Sometimes you don’t know if your working on Friday until Thursday but sometimes you’ll know on Monday.

Just a job.

I worked here for about 10 months. Over the course of that time I still had not learned hardly anyone's name. Co-workers weren't unfriendly but everyone was there to do their job and go home. Everyone complained about the same problems that never got fixed: Not enough breaktime, management kind of looks down on you and will not take anyone's ideas or suggestions because we were hourly workers, the maintenance guys are rude (I was cussed out by one of them when I had said they did one little thing wrong, being very polite.) People with seniority goof off and don't do nearly as much work as other employees and they happen to also be management's favorites. I had actually seen someone sleeping on one of our production tables while we were supposed to be working. I was also told that the job i was doing was a 1 and a half person job because there were so many extra tasks. I had help for a little while and they took my co-worker away and pretty much said "Deal with the extra work). You get maybe a day of training if you're lucky then get to hear "You did this wrong" for months because of lack of training and caring in general. We had just gotten a 2nd shift for our department and it literally seemed like they kept setting us up to fail when we came in every morning (Doing 3/20 jobs in the department and got us super behind on everything else). It got to the point where I wasn't happy with the job and wanted to walk out almost every day. There was too much stress working here in my opinion.

Forget having a life after getting hired

They work you like a dog with usually only one day off. Management sucks most of them have no idea what they are doing. They make working 15-20 hours of overtime a week mandatory. You will have no life

Unwanted window products they give to the employees.

The management may have changed, but then they were very fair to the employees, your boss recognized you for your work done, and also willing to help in any way possible.

Terrible work environment

Entire company is clique based and if you’re not a part of it you’re not going to enjoy it. They also force you to work 6 days a week and don’t tell you that in the interview. Overtime is not optional at hunter Douglas, so be prepared to have no life once you start.

Pros

Night shift

Cons

Forced ot, feels like high school with a bunch of 50 year olds

They do offer good incentive s

Its not a bad company to work for. They just expect you to work 60 hours a week and still run a household and get rest. You must put this company 1st.

Pros

They offer meals quite often

Cons

No compassion for sick children or your home life

Good job/ Favortism

It was a good place to work. Just had to ignore the favoritism. My team was fun and my direct lead was pretty great. Lunch break was hard if you didnt bring food you barley had enough time to leave eat and get back on time.

Pros

Short lunch breaks

Pays well, period. That was the only benefit working there

No leadership, people with seniority goofed off a lot, never told what’s going on. Never told about anything good you’re doing just the mistakes. Nice snack store. Very short breaks. Orientation doesn’t explain a lot about the company’s point system. Read it carefully they like to get you with that .

Pros

Pays well for the area

Cons

Lots of reason not to work there. You’ll have to decide yourself should You choose to work there

High demanding job with low pay

I decided to work at HD for a more work balance lifestyle. It is currently helping in that aspect of like but I don't see myself here in the long run. Management is very picky on when you clock out for lunch, break, etc. For example if you clock out late for work your dinged a point. They won't allow you to get off the phones a few minutes early. You can literally get a call the last 3 minutes of your shift and must stay on the phone until the call is over. And remind you, if they ask why you clocked out late you have to explain that you receive a call so they can "excuse" it. Same for breaks and lunches they don't want you in any other call mode that's not active to receive calls unless your scheduled to do so. The calls can be a few minutes to almost an hour depend on the dealer you're dealing with! And don't get me started on the dealers. They're verbally abusive and get away with being aggressive and majority of the time it's their fault as to why they're mad! They're pay is minimum wage even if you have years of experience. The job is very demanding and unnecessarily stressful. Oh, and one more thing. You only get a "pay" raise based on how your calls go. Unless you absolutely need a job or if you truly enjoy dealing with mad client on the phone, it's not worth it!!!

Pros

Set schedule

Cons

30min lunch, strict "adherence", poor pay, poor communication

Long hours, poor management

The work environment is stressful. Unorganized and management is poor. High turnover. Lots of opportunities to injure yourself. Lots of mandatory overtime. They will tell you that you work ten hour days so that you have three days off but require you to work one or two of your days off. So they lie to you when they hire you. Warehouse has fans so it's cooler than most warehouses. Dress is casual.

Pros

Pay is decent for this area.

Cons

Stressful work environment.

Horrible place to work long term

This is an in between job at best. They treat their employees horribly and will walk you out at the drop of a hat. You can do better, avoid this place.

Completely disrespectful management

In my short 6 years of work experience I've never seen an employer treat and speak to employees with this kind of disrespect. Other than that the job isn't bad and most of the coworkers are easy going. Management is beyond ridiculous in this factory if you're not considered a favorite.

Pros

Insurance

Cons

Management personal
