Professional Atmosphere
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Seguin, TXNovember 6, 2017
This is a great place to work but it is hard to get in. Pay is very competitive. I used resources offered through the employer (Lynda.com and New Horizons learning center) to increase my Excel skills. Management always made me feel like my own boss (no micromanaging). There was always a friendly atmosphere with my coworkers. The hardest part was being patient to juggle multiple repsonsibilities at once. The most enjoyable part of the job was the opportunity to interact meaningfully with others on a regular basis.
Pros
managers who cooked us BBQ
Cons
stuck in 1997 technology

Great company in a great industry
Manager (Current Employee) –  Dublin, CANovember 3, 2017
Hexcel is a great place to work and is an industry leader in composites for the Aerospace industry. Lots of great people and a focus on continuous improvement. Very little politics for a mid-size corporation. Expect to be challenged but rewarded for your efforts. You also get a chance to work with very smart people across the globe.

Great workers and shop employees
S/p bond operator (Former Employee) –  Pottsville, PAOctober 23, 2017
Terrible management. Told by engineering theres a reason your on the shop floor and not in the office. You get belittled by management for trying to make changes or fix the process. Supervisors sit in office all night and dont know what the parts are then your question about parts being done. Supervisors have there pets to watch and give the report on what people got done and etc
Pros
Good pay

Poor management and job culture
Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Kent, WASeptember 23, 2017
I worked for Hexcel for several years and the culture there is toxic. If people don't like you, good luck surviving. Everyone is very cliquish. Management is not on your side and will have you work on their behalf and will never give you credit.

Maintenance Electrician (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTSeptember 5, 2017
Not big into training their employees. Do not provide much support and are quick point fingers at people for their problems. Management is always looking over their employees shoulders. There are some great employees working there too.
Pros
overtime
Cons
shift work

Strength within
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Casa Grande, AZAugust 19, 2017
. The company has better than fair benefits, job security, opportunity to move within the company, and a great team environment. There many different jobs and shift to move into and if an individual is motivated they can seek out even more opportunities. The company offers a good amount of time off and is one of the top paying in the area. They have come a long way in safety the past few years but with the ISO standard being implemented they will continue to develop in the safety of the employees. There are many employees with 20+ years here, that says a lot.
Pros
Great pay, good benefits, coworker are friendly, and lots of movement within the company
Cons
Most all new personal on off shift

Work environment constantly changing, fast paced. Good people and team trying to improve operations. Hourly/salary teams not fully aligned
Manager (Former Employee) –  Kent, WAAugust 4, 2017
Company amidst multi-year downturn in aviation/aerospace sales resulting in significant reduction of workforce and impacting workload and expectations of remaining employees.

Most enjoyable part of job was working with the on-floor, hourly workforce who wanted to change, to make things better. There are many intelligent, committed men and women at this company and whose knowledge and expertise has yet to be fully engaged to make things better.

Fun place to work but not stable
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJuly 12, 2017
Hexcel has great people and compensation. Work/Life balance can be good depending on which department you work in. In general, Hexcel is lean on employees resulting in stress and long hours for most people. Job security is low. The turnover is high at about 30% with managers and employees constantly leaving or being re-assigned. Don't count on staying at Hexcel longterm. Management is good given their situation. There is a hyperactive, knee-jerk mentality there that probably comes from corporate. Overall, Hexcel is a fun and interesting place to work but you could be directed to the revolving door anytime.
Pros
People and compensation
Cons
Turnover

You can make good money but management is sketchy
Specialist (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJuly 5, 2017
The hardest part was probably the shifts going from Night to Day and them forcing you to work on your days off. They are fast paced and its a production line so they push you to do certain things even though it might go against company policies that always change. Its a union job but the union is friends with the people that work there. So they just do enough, I've had far better unions elsewhere.
Pros
good money
Cons
no time to spend it

Great pay but mamangement sucks
Machine Oeprator (Current Employee) –  Casa Grande, AZJune 16, 2017
Management is out for themselves and will screw over operators if it will benefit them. Pay for the area is excellent. 8-12 hour shifts and lots of overtime and weekends.

Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) –  SLC, UTJune 12, 2017
Pays well for a regular job. There is too great of an unbalanced focus on share holder returns vs employee moral and support. Would be better if every position wasn't constantly overworked in the name of 'lean' operating.

Overall great place to work!
Process specialist (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJune 10, 2017
This job was a good opportunity to learn about certain aspects in manufacturing and it is a great place to learn about the aerospace industry.
A typical day consists of building product to be shipped almost always same day.
Culture can be rough, a lot of lazy people, however, a lot good workers as well.
Pros
Great Benefits

Training Manager (Former Employee) –  Casa Grande, AZJune 9, 2017
I think that Hexcel is a great place to work. It is a big company but yet a small company as it is very easy for employees to access all levels of management. Open door policy is very much in effect there.
Pros
Easy access to all levels of management.
Cons
Not much room for career advancement for salaried employees.
