Great Pay but limited advancement
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTApril 24, 2017
Hexcel pays well and makes world class composite materials. There isn't room for advancement but if you like your job there is solid job security. The company pushes for continuous improvement but they don't have or provide the resources to support the initiatives.
Pros
Aerospace
Cons
Culture, management

Quality Control Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTApril 21, 2017
Hexcel has a good production environment. You will work 60+ hours in a week with a rotating 12 hour schedule that has you working 7 days and 7 nights intermingling. Your pay is great and opportunity for advancement is there if you have the experience or the schooling. The work is stressful but rewarding. Your social life will diminish considerably. Not recommended if you have children.
Pros
Good working experience
Cons
Difficult hours

Great Pay - Bad Culture
Corrugated Products Technician (Former Employee) –  Casa Grande, AZMarch 27, 2017
Great company to work for.
Extremely hard to get in and once you do, your are at the bottom of the barrel and have no voice. Seniority carries a ton of weight within this company and its unfair for those that actually work hard compared to those that have been many years with the company and have gotten complacent.
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Seniority based culture, unable to move ahead, seniority controls everything

productive & loved the graphite department
graphite operator (Former Employee) –  hexcel corporation casa grande arizoneOctober 27, 2016
I loved learning how to build graphite blocks for bowing 747 airplanes & putting them together & washing the blocks, painting them & wrapping the blocks then shipping them. I truly wish I wasn't a temp worker as I would of loved to be able to have kept that job at hexcel corporation & would have gone onto another higher position, but they didn't need me after my 90 days were up. I did enjoy my co-workers,as I did work on the grave yard shift I did meet some nice people that I enjoyed working with

Old style management philosophy cutting cost will always be the answer.
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAJuly 14, 2016
I haven’t really learned much from the upper management with this company. This company will hire and promote a “yes man” over a hard work employee with passion for what they do. Due to lack of investment in people, there is a revolving door of engineers and supervisors.
Pros
If you are a salaried employee your schedule can be fairly flexible.
Cons
Old style of management philosophy, instead of developing their employee’s management is more concerned about cutting cost, not realizing that cuts can go only so deep.
