Poor representation from the employee's association, amiable managers were under too much pressure to discipline, the not-so amiable managers were too eager to discipline unfairly and for little or invalid reasons. It's not a good place to work for "non-favorites". HPS reported quarterly profits every quarter for the entire 8 years of my employment with them, yet they still felt the need to outsource production to their plants in Mexico and India.
Wages are slightly above average, Free lunches, barbeques on or near statutory holidays, great afternoon shift hours (4-10 hour shifts).
Poor pension plan, wages weren't high enough for new hires to purchase modest housing in the same town.
Sweep things under the carpet instead of dealing with it. Gives your positions away underneath you. Good luck getting training it’ll take 6 months for them to even think about training. They’re more worried about getting their products out the door rather than their employees.
Work 6 days a week, Slack on training, Supervisor just walks and gossips and doesn’t do her job, Slack on dealing with harassment issues.
If you need a paycheck, go ahead. If you want a life, HPS management cares little for that. Constant mandatory overtime leaves no room for personal issues. Management only cares about production and deadlines. Personal emergency? Too bad. Those are not allowed. However there is more than enough favoritism and bias to go around. Someone’s harassing you in any way? Don’t worry, management will ignore it and allow it to continue. I’ll never darken their doorstep again. Unless you’re desperate, I suggest you don’t either.
Too much overtime. No competent HR representation.
Family run company with really poor senior management who are archaic in not only their management style but also in their values. Control is the name of the game. Senior management team are nicknamed HPS mafia as they don't engage any of the employees in operational or strategic activities.
People in middle management and below are nice and hardworking.
controlling senior management and no desire to improve or change.
This job can be enjoyable when you work with nice people. Its fun to build things. Management does not care about it's employees at all..... But if your looking for a quick job this is the place. The hardest part of the job is dealing with cranky people.

Company treats its employees fairly well but badly managed. Co-Workers on the floor are good to work with and helpful to one another. Frequently layoff employees as soon as work slows down or not enough contracts. Not a very good sales team or marketing for their product to sustain steady orders for transformers.
I received the opportunity to work at HPS while I was on summer break in my second year of college. I could not be more glad that I took this opportunity. I learned the various responsibilities that are expected of a junior buyer such as placing and maintaining purchase orders, and expediting where need be. It was actual on the job experience which was much more beneficial than classroom learning alone. I learned the importance of deadlines in a manufacturing environment. Management and co-workers were easy to get along with and always glad to help me if I had a question. I learned a lot from everyone here. I also learned about various other roles in a manufacturing setting, and how Purchasing interacts with these other individuals. Overall, it was a very good experience, and I would not be where I am now without this opportunity.
Shorter Lunch Hour
Made transformers and loaded trucks in shipping and receiving. Learned to pay attention to detail and follow spec sheets to ensure proper parts and wire were installed in each transformer. Excellent management made everyone feel important and rewarded for their hard work. Working under tight deadlines was the hardest part of the job while the most enjoyable aspect was working with patient and friendly superiors.
