Hidden Gem!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hawkins full-time

ProsGreat company to work for, above average for both pay and benefits. Management takes action on poor performers and recognizes good employees. Solid business model for longevity and growth!

ConsCould have a stronger marketing strategy on their positive image, still seems to be relatively unknown for a company in business over 75 years.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Hawkins full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood pay, the oppertunity to advance, and an emphasis on safety make this company one to work for.

ConsPutting the customer first can at time create long hours and stressful situations that you will need to deal with.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of those on the lowest level. They are the ones who are keeping Hawkins good name.

Farce

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I worked at Hawkins full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood pay and benefits, fairly flexible schedule.

Cons- Old stogie atmosphere
- New employees are offered little training in most departments
- Outdated procedures and lack of interest in changing or updating though some newer managers are trying
- Lack of communication within organization causes frequent, unnecessary timeliness issues with orders.
- Tuition reimbursement only seems to apply if you are going to school for what they want. If you desire to go into a different field you must get permission from management to study or you may risk losing your job.
- If you start into tuition reimbursement program and quit or lose your job, you owe them all the money paid to that point.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop backbiting your employees.
