Teamwork

The teamwork is outstanding. If I ever needed any help everyone was more than happy to assist. I spent a great deal of time training and it was an A1 experience. I would give anything to go back to this company.

Workplace Safety

Safest company I have ever worked for. Rules for hearing and eye protection are strict but cooperation is rewarded with a monthly bonus.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Please give previous employees that voluntarily resigned a second chance.

What I like about the company

Very fair company to work for. Always willing to help and get employees up to speed and squared away.

What I dislike about the company

Early first shift but this is still a pro because you punch out early as well.

Company Culture

That is so funny not one person will ever do that, ha ha ha ah ha ha. Where is the negative stars for this question ?

Support from management

You are just a Mule to them, you never work enough, you don't know anything, and why aren't you working faster, plus you are doing it wrong.

Teamwork

Never had so many tools stolen in my life ever from there, everyone is out to make you look bad to better there poor life there. In the mornings everyone walking in to start there shift won't even bother saying hello or good morning, just a grunt and keep walking by if you are lucky to get that !!!!

Freedom to work independently

Can never work fast enough for them or long enough !!!!

Internal Communication

They actually had a meeting about feedback but the employee's were not to give feedback or ask questions on the first meeting, because they were informing you that they were working on this for you, then never had another meeting again !!!!

Gender Equality

Everyone isn't good enough ever so they treat everyone just as bad.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The long term employee's will never help or even care that you are there, the turnover is so high that Temp Agencies will not refer anyone to this place, but only under contract to say so. Every Temp Agency will not work with HDM anymore due to HDM's treatment of employee's. The companies that come in and repair the machinery hate coming in and dealing with HDM, to the point that only senior repair personnel will go in there because they know how to deal with the GM.

Career Development

The engineering Dept has to be hired under contract only, even the people in the office are treated just as bad as on the production employee's. Every engineer that worked there, has only worked there term under the contract only and left to a better place. They have promoted employee's to work in the office, but they are the ones that couldn't make it any where else and now they are the ones in charge.

Overall compensation for your work

They throw money at you in the beginning to get you in the door, then after you have worked your probationary period, or annual review time, they tell you that you are paid the max for your position and that you will not be paid anymore.

Office / Work Environment

I guess they painted the floors white so they get to see hoe much blood comes off your back after whipping you, then boast among themselves on what a great great job they did by yelling at you !!!!

Environmental Friendliness

It's all about HDM and nothing more, they make hydraulic cylinders for snow plows but the parking lot every year is knee high full of snow.

Work-Life Balance

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha funny question, now get back to work.

Company Image

This place should have a sign out by the entrance saying "Dead End Employee Parking Only"

Job Security

Never you will only be a number to them

Handicapped Accessibility

They don't even turn on the vent in the bathroom, that's how little you are to them. So why would they ever do anything for a disabled person

Workplace Safety

OSHA should have a person there full time there just to fill out the paperwork correctly !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Challenging Work

There quality control is a joke !!! They have a CMM from the 1980's and every step to control quality is meet by the GM asking why you are not working???

Inclusive / Diverse

They have had there owners come thru to inspect the company to check on there investment and put the people with tattoo's and people that are not up to there image of the company in another room while the owners finish up there inspection.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Evacuate the building grab a chair and marshmallows, then watch it burn !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What I like about the company

They pay money......that's about it, never said it was good money or a lot of money but the pay.

What I dislike about the company

It's a good place to start because once you have worked there you can appreciate your new job once you have left there, because everyone has one bad company that they have worked for in there lives and that place is HDM.
