I worked at Hammond Manufacturing full-time
Decent pay if you live close to the location. The owner is a very nice and respectable person. Office workers are friendly and professional.
This place is a huge disappointment (Buffalo, NY). Harassment and sexual harassment runs rampant among coworkers in the warehouse and it includes management as well. If you aren't part of the group you can guarantee you wont make it peacefully day by day to just do your job and go home. Senior coworkers pride themselves on being better than everyone else at the expense of using drama and harassment to newer employees. Its like you're in a drama movie with zero professional approach among employees. I will never go back here to work and highly recommend you steer clear of this place if you want to keep your sanity. the emotional mind games that are played aren't worth the pay no matter what tempting offer they give you. there isn't room to excel very far and you can guarantee that this location will go under as its the only bad apple in the company. Human Resources wont help you and its just best to move on if you ever decide this work environment isn't for you.
Advice to Management
Please address each issue properly from any level of employment as this location as it is in serious need of cleaning house. Each accusation of harassment should be taken seriously and dealt with accordingly. While i did only merely like this job at first, it became clear that the lack of professionalism was rampant whenever company owners and human resources wasn't looking. It actually hurt to leave the job i had enjoyed that made it easy for me to pay my bills. the mental abuse and uncomfortable atmosphere however wasn't worth it. Id rather work at the Canadian location than the Buffalo ANY day if it meant i could keep my job. Such situations like this should never be tolerated as it is apparent i am not the only former employee that this has happened to. I only hope that i can save other respectable workers the time and effort that will be wasted here.
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.
