    I worked at Hussmann full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, paid holidays and starting vacation is 3 weeks.

    Cons

    No work/life balance unless your upper mamnagement or upper union. Managers aren't very good and will throw you under the bus to save their own skin. Cooperation between departments does not exist - Lot's of finger pointing and backstabbing. Overall employee attitude, both union and hourly, is toxic. No clear leadership or direction by managers. Good workers leave after a few years for better jobs or are beaten down to the point they don't care. Supervisors must put in 50 hours a week to be eligible for straight time overtime - no time and a half or double time folks. Basically your taking a 20% pay cut just to get paid straight for the forced overtime on weekends.

    Advice to Management

    You created this mess - Deal with it. You can't get top notch talent.

    I have been working at Hussmann full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a good company to work for. Benefits available day one. Tuition reimbursement after a year. 2-3 weeks vacation to start with. Cafeteria that sells hot and cold food daily along with snacks.

    Cons

    Uses old out of date software which makes it harder to complete things within certain deadlines. I don't feel like I'm cared about as an individual They just want me to do my work so that their jobs are easier.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees and asking what you can do to make it a better place to be.We spend a significant amount of time here and a lot of people are unhappy and just not saying anything.

    I worked at Hussmann (More than a year)

    Pros

    Offered introductory experience with exposure to solid modeling software and design practice.

    Cons

    The company did not seem to expect much from the interns. Lacked meaningful projects, many seemed to be busy work. Company culture did not seem inviting. Offered no housing help, which makes it difficult for interns who are not from the area.
