    Current Employee - Assembler in Londonderry, NH

    I have been working at Harvey Industries full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    very good insurance, decent vacation time, profit sharing that hardly any company have nowadays are definitely great plus.

    Cons

    if you are on a production floor no one is interested in developing your potential, or ever give you opportunity to try a new role. no one will listen to your ideas and process improvements, so don't even waste your time. rules are sometimes absurd: we have 10 min coffee breaks after 2 hours of work, there are coffeemakers and coffee provided, but by the time you make it 10 min are over and you have to go back to work, so you don't have time to drink it. managers will not make coffee for workers and will not allow one person go 5 min earlier , not to lose 5 min of time they could be working

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    production employees are the ones who knows the process the best and their ideas can save company big bucks. Just give them a chance to speak, listen to what they have to say.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Harvey Industries in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Phone interview and then two step on site interview. Interviewed with engineering manager, then plant manager, and finally a second plant manager. Standard straight forward interview with basic questions. Plant tour. Communication was great. I am sick and tired of online job searching and HR people hiding behind their email. Not here. Given contact information and kept up do date. HR person even called me on way home. Too bad company is in financial trouble.
