Operator/Laborer (Former Employee) – Casa Grande, AZ – May 13, 2018
Good place to work over all, Bosses are not great their out for only themselves, everything you do is watched, no appreciation for the extra work you do, a lot of favoritism.. Pay was great, didn't like that everyone in an area was paid the same when all individuals didn't perform the same.
NC Programmer (Former Employee) – St. Clair, PA – June 23, 2018
This place is a joke! They won’t hire you if you have a close family member that works there! no matter how much skill you have or how many years of experience you have they turn their nose up at you! In my opinion it’s blantent discrimination! And for a company that handles government contracts this should be illegal! Of course if you know someone high up or maybe your family member that works there is a pet then you might get hired!
Terrible and Awful place to work with no job security whatsoever, poor training of new employees and no respect/consideration from management
Process Technician (Former Employee) – Burlington, WA – April 21, 2018
If you have a family and are looking for a stable job where you don’t have to go to work everyday afraid to make a mistake and get fired, DO NOT work at Hexcel. Management has no respect and consideration for new employees, they don’t train you yet yell at you for not learning and they immediately look for reasons to fire you. PLEASE look elsewhere
Assembler/Production (Former Employee) – Kent, WA – April 1, 2018
Worst place to work.. After 9 years I walked out.. Managers are pathetic.. No leadership whatsoever.. just a good ole boys club.. however, if you brown nose and worship the management you will go far, including you don't have to be productive.. The professionalism at this company is an absolute joke!!
Logistics (Former Employee) – Kent, WA – March 30, 2018
Always had to be at your station or to be otherwise verified. No drinking or eating at your work station, not even water unless in twist bottle cap. I did learn a lot and got along with all the vendors. Management although and chummy with their pets and not too professional.
Profit sharing, qrtly.
Some people getting away with not doing their job while others work even harder
Minimal training given. People were great. Management had issues.
Senior Machinist (Current Employee) – Casa Grande, AZ – January 31, 2018
Hexcel would be a great place to work if they were more organized. Unfortunately, they don't rely on their strongest and most experienced working staff to help keep them current and working efficiently.
great pay and benefits
lunch is on paid time so you rarely have time to sit down and eat.
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Seguin, TX – January 28, 2018
They pay decent for the job, offer good benefits. Do it if you extremely need money and know somebody there. You have mother and daughter, father and son, brother and sister... as your co-workers. Your mistake if it relates to safety will be looked under a 20x lens microscope, and you can get fire for it.Safety is a very big deal. The job itself is boring and tedious, noisy environment. High expectation, favoritism. Getting written up and fired easily. Overtime is mandatory almost every month. You are being watched 24/7 while you are working.Somebody there is usually behind your back and reports whatever you do.
Seniority gets advancement first.High turn over rate, easy to get fired.Nepotism.People watch your back.
Product Safety Administrator (Former Employee) – Dublin, CA – January 24, 2018
I would recommend Hexcel Corp.as a good place to work and to plan a career with. The management is aware of the employees and strives to provide a workplace balance. Hexcel allows for the employees to interact with the global community by offering career assistance with training and education support.
Friendly work enviroment, career growth and some times travel opportunities
I worked at Hexcel for 13 years and advanced from an electrician up to the Sales office. I enjoyed every day, even the tough days. The people and the management team were great to work with. Lot's of interesting challenges.
Process Associate - West Valley City Utah (Current Employee) – West Valley City, UT – November 9, 2017
You feel like you are always at work. Work life Balance is not there. 12 hour days are long. Working the rotating shifts are difficult on your body, going from night to day shifts. The pay is great after 16 months.
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.
Manager (Current Employee) – Dublin, CA – November 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.
