Very demanding, poor management structure.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If you have ever watch "The Office" then you can relate to this high pressure sales company, stuck in the 80s, had a recent MBO and are desperate for each sale. They operate a high pressure sales and office environment, high staff turnover of office and install teams. Very poor management structure that like to micro manage every minute of the working day, which is approx a 14 hour day. The computer system the use is from the 1970s and Head office is a series of portacabins with buckets everywhere to catch the rain as the roof constantly leaks, very little investment in the company, staff or training.

Company is toxic & bullying

Hammonds is an aweful place & i strongly reccommend everyone to avoid. Customers & staff are not looked after but more inportantly are manipulated & pushed into bad situations. Theres zero upside to this company.

Cons

Toxic & bullying

Poor to work for

Left alone with little support and no loyalty to staff a great product but little support for those at the sharp end. Needs to believe in managers to manage instead of micro managing

Pros

Customer interaction

Cons

Great Place to work

This company has a great culture. It's a family business, but, massive!! I have worked here for 5 years and always wanted to stay! The wages aren't great, but, the culture is and there is advancement if you work for it. I would recommend Hammond's as an employer all day long.

Pros

The whole feel of working for an understanding employer

Cons

Not great pay
