Level 3 Manufacturing Technician/Shift Lead (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, COJune 1, 2018
Hunter Douglas provides a structured job environment. They provide a lot of benefits that employees are encouraged to use. Mandatory overtime is sometimes required. Workplace culture depends on the department you are in.

Secure employment with some advance opportunity.
TEAM LEAD (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTMay 29, 2018
Work is pretty standard for manufacturing. At the beginning of the day and after lunch there is time for a shop meeting and ergonomic stretching.

I was given constant opportunity to cross train within the shop and learn numerous skills of the manufacturing process. As well as getting to attend a number of manufacturing trainings.

Management is wiling to listen to most ideas for improvement, and consider the most plausible options. They do a decent job of relaying information back to employees.

Workplace culture could use some work. There doesn't seem to be a huge initiative to work with employees who don't care about things like good housekeeping or area/process improvements and sustaining them. Most of that gets loaded onto the few employees who are willing to do it. Music is not allowed, which could vastly improve the mood and motivation of employees.

The hardest part of the job is the long term monotony. When opportunities to advance and move around happen, it's not much of an issue, but staying more than a year or two in a single position leads to a lack of focus and difficulty staying motivated.

The most enjoyable part of the job is when the whole shop is in sync, and running smoothly. You're never too overwhelmed with work, and you never run out. When you have a good rhythm in the shop you can just keep working and time goes by quicker.
Pros
Yearly raises, regardless of position.
Cons
Few opportunities for advancement.

Newly hired mgt team took a 'our way or the highway' approach and did not respect SMEs.
Division Packaging Engineer (Former Employee) –  West Sacramento, CAMay 3, 2018
VP of Engineering (FAB Div) came in with a hard approach toward people that turned many off. People left as a direct result and then there were layoffs. Not a pleasant working environment, everyone felt the pressure to perform or be fired.
Pros
first 3 years under a respectful mgt team that allowed you to do your job
Cons
last yr under a disrespected mgt team, questioning your every move, very constraining, limited creativity

It is not a fun place to work, the moral is very low and they really don’t care about there employes.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  North CarolinaMarch 14, 2018
There is just too much drama. Management looks for fault in most of what you do.
Management really needs an major overhaul
HR dept makes numerous mistakes on most of the paychecks. I have been here for 19 years now and have done numerous jobs with no pay raises. That has been mostly in the past 10 years. Different management now. There has been a lot of turnover since then. I have even been offered another job recently in one of the other depts and my manager at the time held me back and didn’t even tell me about it.
Pros
Pretty good benefits
Cons
Pay raises are near to nothin, moral is awful and HR has no clue what they are doing
