    Growing company and investing in the right areas

    Very focused on improving and open to employee feedback

    Not many standardized processes, which is an area for improvement now
    Sales driven without considering other functional areas

    I have been working at Hawkins full-time

    Pros

    Great company with great benifit. Great managers

    Cons

    It’s a small company that needs much improvement. The company’s pay could be better. Very underpayed

    Advice to Management

    Needs to observe and help the company more and needs to evaluate situations better.

    I have been working at Hawkins full-time

    Pros

    Growing company that is always changing. Newer headquarters building that is nice and they tend to allow a great work life balance. There is a good culture here for the most part and some really quality people. Good PTO plan and other benefits.

    Cons

    Underpays most positions unless you're in sales or top management. Huge discrepancy in pay compared to comparable companies/jobs.

    Advice to Management

    They need to raise base pay so it is inline with other companies that are $500K-$1M in sales otherwise quality talent in support areas feel under valued.

    Pros

    Great group of people with a strong work ethic. They are customer-focused which is commendable in this day and age. They are strong on service to the customer.

    Could work on upper management being more approachable.

    Pros

    Growth oriented, company recognizes the importance of employees, great employees/co-workers, strong market position, competitive benefits and pay

    Cons

    Lots of opportunities to grow but as a mid-sized company the opportunities aren't necessarily spelled out as they may be in a large company. Some of the opportunities present themselves as business expands.

    I worked at Hawkins full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits that are offered are pretty good.

    Cons

    Watch your back or you'll get stabbed before you know it. Micromanaging all over the place, and no one ever takes responsibility for their mistakes. Need to run a few background checks on some of their employees in top management as well - they don't know they kinds of things their hiding.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and look in the mirror - the problem lies with top management.

    Pros

    I feel incredibly fortunate to have recently received a job offer from Hawkins. From my first contact with Minde to my ultimate hire, the entire process was handled with incredible professionalism, understanding, and sensitivity. One reviewer noted that Hawkins is a "hidden gem." I couldn't agree more!

    Cons

    This may sound crazy in today's world, but I have honestly found nothing wrong with Hawkins.
