    I have been working at Husco full-time

    Pros

    Been able to continue to learn and grow throughout my career at HUSCO.

    Former Employee - Quality Technician in Whitewater, WI
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Husco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It was a good place to work for a while, which is why I worked here for so long. There's a huge ego problem at this company. Lots of arrogance. It's clear they have been trying to convey this amazing culture the past several years, but it seems to be a huge charade in my opinion.

    Cons

    Don't get tricked into being forced to work here throughout college and then on the hook for 5 figures of debt for 3 years after graduating. Recent article showing students who can make "60-80k per year" as a technician at HUSCO with an associates degree is news to me. I worked here for well over a decade and didn't even come remotely close to that. If you want to work in a non-hostile environment and actually make good money, I'd advise working elsewhere so you can keep your sanity.

    Hello, thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you are unhappy. We work very hard on ensuring our culture is innovative, results-driven, and quality focused. I'm unsure of where you worked specifically, but if you were ever in a hostile work environment, I hope you shared that with your HR representative on site as that is not something that we accept. In regards to tuition reimbursement, the program is uniquely designed to encourage continuing development of our employees. After investing the full cost of tuition and books (without a cap), we do require a level of commitment to the organization after graduation, which is standard across the industry. I see that you are no longer at Husco but if you do want to chat further about any concerns you have, please feel free to reach out to HR.

    We are happy that you have enjoyed the atmosphere here at Husco. It is not our intent to treat anyone within the organization as easily replaceable. If you would care to expand, please see a member of our HR team so we can curtail any of these actions.

    I have been working at Husco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some departments and locations are viewed as more important and therefore get better treatment. If you are able to train yourself and are not afraid to ask questions you'll do well.

    Cons

    Opposite of pros. Also culture advertised is not the current culture.
