I have been working at Hammond Manufacturing full-time (More than 3 years)
I suppose to pay is decent enough. It is a good amount of money, if only for a temporary job until you figure out something better to do.
-The other senior employees do everything they can to get ahead. Bordering on abusive to newer employees.
-The management and supervisors have no real problem with this, and will often partake in mental/ emotional harassment of younger employees too. Seriously, it is like in the movies when a supervisor leans in and says they can fire you. It breaks my heart to see new workers treated like that.
-I've even heard rumors of falsified calls to the police just to mess with employees the supervisors don't like.
Advice to Management
I'm usually against the idea of cameras to monitor the workers, but in this case it would be for their own good. Save for a few people (I wish I could at least name the good ones) the entire middle-management is basically like a mob.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hammond Manufacturing (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.
Initially, I had a phone interview which I passed and later called in for a face to face interview.I meet with the Human Resource Manager first where she covered several personality type questions and how I would fit in the organization. After this interview, I came back a second day and met with the Plant Manager and the Assistance Controller. The reason given for not getting the position there were other candidates that had recently worked in the accounting area and were familiar with the current cost accounting systems being used.
