I have been working at Huntwood full-time (Less than a year)
Working here is great. Hunt is a fast paced place to work and if your thing is spending the day at the water cooler then you might not like it here. Not because someone will tell you to get back to work but because you are surrounded by people who really love their work and take pride in it. It is rare to see anyone wasting time. It is a good sign of being engaged in your work.
There is a genuine care for the wellbeing of those who work here by the Hunt Family. As you get to know them more and more, you see that they are people with a solid base of fairness and equity and giving people the benefit of the doubt
Depending on where you work, the schedules are different but I find the 7am to 5pm a bit long some days. But this is very minor as I usually ended up at work that long at my previous careers anyway.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work.
Become the premier employer of choice in the entire area by considering cool perks that are low cost for example.
a) keeping the 7-5 schedule but give Friday's early leave of 2pm
b) stat holidays are killers on labor costs so I wouldn't recommend observing more than you do but perhaps consider a few revolving paid days off. That way folks can still get a couple more paid days off but you don't have to pay double time for those working like you would for a stat.
c) with the huge purchasing power that Hunt Carries, negotiate with vendors (lumber sales, protective clothing, computer sales, etc.) to get employee discounts at their stores
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Huntwood in October 2016.
met with everyone from owner to front desk
I did some basic day to day processes to show my competency in certain areas, I also was given a tour. Meeting everyone on the team was helpful and it made me more comfortable to know who I would be working with. It was a bit long as it lasted most of the day.
