Production work with 12-hour shifts
Team Lead/ Process Associate Specialist (Current Employee), Windsor, COAugust 8, 2014
Pros: free lunches, good benefits, promising future
Cons: lots of physical work, on concrete all day, hot and sticky environment
Lots of product changes, cleaning and detail-oriented work. The rotating shifts are nice because you never work more than three 12-hour shifts in a row. The days off are necessary to recharge your body after the long hours of hard work. High turnover and hard work seems to turn people away, but the pay and benefits are nice and outweigh the negatives. I would recommend this job for people with high energy, positive attitude (job gets stressful at times) and ability to muti-task with a great sense of urgency.

very easy going people
Accusticap manufacturer (Former Employee), Casa Grande, AZAugust 4, 2014
Pros: 401k, nice people, great management, breaks every 2 hours
Cons: had to work 12's on a moments notice and no way out of it, bad vacation/sick/fmla system
this by far was my most enjoyable work place yet. 95% of the time everybody had smiles on their faces , rare occasions we had to work 12 hours and that was when we had upset people there. I would go into work and go to my machine and find out where the last coworkers had left off and I would take over , sometimes throughout the day others would come to me if their machine stopped working or they had questions about work orders. I cant get into details about what all I did there because its highly classified and I had to sign a waver. sometimes I would go help in the saw room or shipping witch required me to be fork lift certified thru Hexcel Company , I took my test and had flying colors when I passed. I would move cubes and shipping boxes and sometimes load them onto trucks at shipping docs.

great environment excellent benefits, one of the best places to work for
Warp Hanger (Former Employee), Seguin, TXJanuary 6, 2014
My shift was from 4pm-midnight I learned to be a more responsible person and employee, all managemet aspects seemed to work pretty good, the work environment was a mix of all cultures and races but it was such a good experience, never had a problem with co-workers,
hardest part of job was not expending that much family time with wife and daughter due to 2nd shift hours, I enjoyed evrything related to hexcel except the fact that it takes too many years to be able to move to !st shift also need more opportunities for management positions even which in my case I was able to finish a BBA in Management.

Company doesn't care about it's employees.
Maintenance Electrician (Former Employee), Casa Grande, AZOctober 16, 2013
Pros: compensation
Cons: horrible work environment
The only good thing about this company is the pay and benefits. The other employees are flat out hostile, and do not work together as a team. Management turns a blind eye.

spinline operator (Former Employee), Decatur, AlApril 3, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: working swing shift can be difficult.
I worked a 12 hour swing shift as a spin line operator. I learned to work as a team and spent several work days as the Line Lead. The management and other employees at Hexcel are excellent to work for and with. The hardest part of the job was the work schedule. Swing shift can be difficult until you get used to it. The most enjoyable part of the job was the paycheck at the end of every two weeks. Learning a new skill and problem solving were a very important part of the job.
