"Company Treats Employees Poorly"
What do you like about working at Hampton Forge?
"There are some really good people that work here that are very talented. I wish they were more appreciated but unfortunately that is not the case."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"If the company includes bonuses as part of your salary arrangement, be prepared for the company to not honor those bonuses or salary reviews. The owner is notorious for slighting employees on bonus plans and also will ask many employees to work weekends even after spending 50 to 60 hours working in the office."
What don't you like about working at Hampton Forge?
"Whatever salary you are asking for that may seem agreeable to the company at first will be met with a salary well-below your expectations. The company does a switch and bait - if you say $80,000, be prepared to get an offer of 20 to 25% below your asking price. This is a very hostile work environment. Owner belittles and berates his employees without reason in meetings. Company often hires unqualified people into various positions. Employee turn rates are very high. The owner will constantly change your core responsiblities without due diligence and understanding the value of the work you do. This company offers poor medical insurance. (Be prepared to spend $600 or more per month for medical insurance if you have a family). The owner will also knowlingly sell bad/damaged product to customers - rusting, poor cratfmanship and defects to name a few. The end result is that the consumer is getting a poorly made product. Do not take a job with Hampton Forge unless you are desperate."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"The owner has demoralized each and every employee at the company. It is hard to imagine that some employees continue to work at this establishment but due to out of maintaining health benefits and keeping a job to feed their families."
