Disorganized, disappointing, and disconnected.
N/A (Former Employee) – Saskatchewan – 5 July 2019
Hillberg & Berk is a business, not a magical world full of sparkle and empowerment. If you and your position are not part of their business plan and the bigger picture you, as a person, don’t matter. It was proven time and time again.
With the departure of dozens of employees (including many managers) there are no doubt opportunities within the company. That being said, Hillberg & Berk has tarnished their reputation. As many others have stated, the pay and benefits are lacking, executive team changes their mind and restructures every 6 months, and have demonstrated that they only pay lip service to their message of empowering women. This is nothing more than a marketing slogan. Under the pressure to perform, leadership has eroded immensely.
If you are young, ambitious and all you want to do is work there are opportunities to learn about a multifaceted business. However, do not have expectations of anything beyond gaining experience.
Small company with opportunity to move around, multifaceted from retail sales to supply chain to manufacturing.
Huge expectations, with no leadership to energize, staff does not trust management.
