Assembler/Production (Former Employee), Solon, OHJanuary 26, 2015
working at Swagelok was very difficult for me because they put me in the clean room but the employees was very friendly but the only thing about it was they didn't give you enough time to learn everything and expected you to take notes work and be able to study your notes without take your notes home with you so you can study the different types of metals and how to work the different machines.

Tool Grinder/CNC machinist (Former Employee), Solon, OHDecember 22, 2014
Pros: free coffee and drinks. tools provided. a/c buildings
Cons: bad insurance plan that gets worse every year, slowly dwindling benefits. poor management and the worst hr dept i have seen.
Management is very shaky. Flip on decisions quite often. The HR group is non-existent and when they do show up, they make very poor decisions. No HR associate has more than 3 years of experience and it shows. No promotions from within company which discourages people form striving to learn and BE more than they are.

poor management at strongsville
cnc/acme (Current Employee), Strongsville, OHDecember 2, 2014
Pros: free drinks
Cons: cocky arrogant supervisors, too much tribal knowledge
Good company to get into, but at the strongsville location you will not adance any higher than a level 3. Acme supervisors like to show favoritism and carry a low morale throughout the department. Very big egos, and very little respect shown

Primary Operator (Former Employee), Solon, OHNovember 13, 2014
Pros: clean environment, free food and drink
Cons: young inexperienced supervisors, underpaid
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Swagelok. Excellent company to work for. It unfortunately came to an abrupt ending at the hands of a non-experienced supervisor. Other than that, Swagelok is a great company and is highly recommended.

NOTE: Once hired in (which may take up to a year), your job for the most part is secured as Swagelok does NOT do layoffs for permanent employees. However, job security comes at a cost as employees are underpaid compared to employees at other companies doing the same thing. If you want to make a decent wage, over time is a must (which is usually available).

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee), Solon, OHOctober 2, 2014
Pros: two breaks and friendly coworkers
Cons: steel toe boots and standing for long period of time
The tasks that are performed are not hard at all. Just being able to flow within the company and show management that you are committed to the company will definitely give one an opportunity to be hired in.
