    Pros

    Willing to give people without office experience a chance, free popcorn, decent prices in vending machine, free pizza occasionally. Some people here are nice.

    Cons

    Abysmal pay rate (all office employees start at $10), raise system is ridiculous (first year raise is 3%-- 30 cents!), pay is capped at $14 and it takes TEN YEARS for an office employee to reach that. PTO is cashed out on anniversary so you can never take more than a sick day. Not that anyone could afford a vacation anyway. Many other employees have terrible attitudes. Certain people in management are creepy toward young female employees.

    Advice to Management

    Happy, well paid employees are happier and more productive.

    I have been working at Hanson's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been at hansons for 16 years and I cant begin to tell you all the good that I have seen. The people that work are truly family. I wake up everyday excited to go to work, not to many people can say that. The owner has given so much to his employees as well as the community that it makes working at this company even better.

    Cons

    I cant think of one bad thing about working here. I love my job!!!!

    I worked at Hanson's full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will get hired quickly, job is fairly simple.

    Cons

    They don't care about you. The place is a revolving door(big turnover rate) and you won't make anything near what they tell you. If you try to discuss compensation, they tell you to work harder and "you will make more." You are a dog chasing your tail at this place.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to attract quality employees then you should be fair and honest. Pretty simple business ethics.

    Pros

    There are no pros at all. The only good thing I can say is they have free popcorn. Like that matters

    Cons

    Dealing with the two most horrible women I've ever met in the recruiting department. They will do whatever it takes to get rid of you, even lie about how you're doing. Working here was an absolute waste of my time. Oh and they make you take a drug test and still hire people if they do drugs. Extremely shady.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring liars and druggies, and stop listening to insecure girls who were given their position based on pretty much nothing who think they're better than everyone else

    Pros

    Great place to work, not just a job but great career advancement opportunities. They give you all the tools to succeed, what you put into it is what you will get out of it. I chose to give 110% and have received the same in return. I love coming to work every day, having fun is key, as the saying goes "If you don't know how to have fun, we'll teach you". Management truly cares about their employees and well being of everyone, especially taking care of our customers. I would recommend anyone to work here! Thanks Brian for all you do for us!

    Cons

    No cons, but it won't take my review unless I type in a minimum of 5 words lol

    Advice to Management

    Let's keep getting it done as a team:)
