Hoermann Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Hörmann is a German manufacturer of doors, garages, door frames, and gates for commercial and private real estate. Operating globally, the family-owned business is Germany's largest door producer and the fourth biggest door manufacturer in the world. The company has 26 specialized plants in Europe, North America and Asia, and more than 6,000 personnel.

A former employee mentioned, "To start the manager at Hörmann did not care about the employee's life outside of work. He would pass out an overtime sheet at the end of the day telling you that you have to work. If you refused, you get points (too many points, you're fired). You had to advise at least 4 days in advance that you couldn't work. Then he acted like it was a huge inconvenience to him. Which any other company is professional enough to give a 24 hour notice. Which is not only good business ethics but also a labor law, but was told its a German company and have to follow their rules (not sure how that means anything though). There is no HR department on site at all. Then the orders are so backed up because sales over schedules the orders, which increases the daily quota to extreme amounts. The company refuses to bring in a second or third shift to help stating that the Germans don't believe in other shifts. Don't expect 2 days off either. You will always work 6 day straights. And again if you state at the beginning of the week you can't work, you are treated like it is a huge inconvenience to the company. Then the micromanagement was a huge problem, The manager had no idea on how things are built or ran, but would stand there and lecture how he wanted certain things done. Also you get maybe a few hours of training before you are on your own. And management talks behind everyone's back to the other employees."

"Hej/Hi (English version below) Hörmann porte skal I ikke købe ! De lover 10 års garanti - men når du nærlæser betingelserne, så dækker garantien ikke "Unormale miljøpåvirkninger" - og den dækker de sig ind under. Bor i Vestjylland, og klimaet her falder tilsyneladende ind under den kategori - og så må man som forbruger bare forvente at portene ruster. SÅ HOLD JER LANGT VÆK FRA HÖRMANN PORTE ! - de kan ikke holde til at sidde udenfor. Når I skal købe porte, og sikre jer mod rust, så er det bedste råd at kigge på hvilken korrosions klasse porten og tilhørende dele er beskyttet med. Gå evt. ind på (det er ikke muligt at kopiere link ind): Nordicgalvanizers - documents - infoblade - korrosionskategorier.pdf Det skal som minimum være klasse C3 eller C4, og det skal dække alle dele udsat for vind vejr. Håber at I får mere held med jeres garage porte - men hold jer fra Hörmann. Hörmann Garage Doors should not be bought! The company promise 10 years warranty - but when you read the conditions, the warranty does not cover "Unusual Environmental Impacts" - and the company use that against you. Living in West Jutland (Denmark), and the climate here appears to fall under that category – so as a consumer, you can only expect the doors to rust. SO KEEP AWAY FROM A HÖRMANN GARAGE DOORS! They are not designed to be mounted outside. If you are going to buy a new Garage Door, you should take a close look at what corrosion class the door and associated parts are protected with. Try and Google – the class should be at least C3 or C4 and it must cover all parts exposed to the outside environment. Hope you get more luck with your garage ports - but keep away from Hörmann."
