    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Harley-Davidson, Inc. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most of the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Not much good to say anymore. No work life balance, HR and leadership are eager to terminate employees. A steady flow of employees have been running out the door for the last several years. The work environment is toxic with little support from managers and above. Most benefits have either eliminated or significantly reduced. A sinking ship and we don't even have buckets to bail it out.

    I worked at Harley-Davidson, Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hourly rates were as expected.

    Cons

    -Deceitful exploitation- Once you finished your temporary assignment through a temp agency you are required to pay $100 in dues to the union upon being accepted after your temp assignment, however this does not benefit one in any way as a lot of people were terminated within the end of that week after paying union dues (well laid plan between management and the union)! The union is aware that certain persons have not be offered permanent positions by Harley Davidson but still collect union dues. Harley Davidson themselves hire temp positions only during the peak of the year to meet anticipated demands in the spring as well as new offerings. At the height of production they expect those in the temporary positions to perform equal to or better than the veteran seasoned employees who normally have laid back jobs on the assembly lines. Please note that many mistakes are automatically blamed on the temps and that the union stewards are useless in this matter as you are still temps through a temp agency!
