stressful place
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Glendale Heights, ILJune 23, 2018
The place is not fun to work at, especially the people are not friendly. Very selfish place. No one notices you if you work hard or not. But I have learned to be patient.

Would never recommend
Materials Manager (Former Employee) –  Bethlehem, PAApril 2, 2018
President cares nothing about people, their input to problems, moral of company, ext. Likes to belittle everyone. People are great as long as they are not the 3 running the show. Company has no clue how to fix their problems ut won't listen to what their managers and employees tell them are the true problems

very unprofessional place
Shipping and Export Clerk (Former Employee) –  Bethlehem, PASeptember 11, 2017
No opportunities for advancement unless you were family members with managers or supervisors. Very unfriendly working environment, managers let family members do an atrocious job while making others pick up the slack. Supervisors would talk about employees personal life and troubles to other employees.

This place needs some real leadership!
Core assembly (Former Employee) –  Denver, NCAugust 22, 2017
Very unorganized and unmanaged place. This includes engineering down to assembly. No one cares or wants to take leadership in actually running the company. Accidents happen because employees are not properly trained to use some of the tools and machinery. It could be a good place to work with different management.
Pros
Most people there want to work there and her pleasant and friendly.
Cons
Long overtime hours, favoritism among certain employees, no training

Core assembly (Former Employee) –  Denver, NCAugust 17, 2017
Management is horrible especially the Production Manager! Work for Core assembly at Hydac and should of been in final assembly but they use and put you where they need you first. They have something change everyday and the training is horrible. The team leader doesn't want you to do better than her. Plus they have regular employees working as supervisor on top of there jobs. Very strict work times even when you early working overtime you can still get points! They Change work times and lunch times on you. No growth cuz there new they just keep say bare with them! Make you feel like a your in the military and in jail! Got other coworkers watching your every move. Makes you feel dishonest and not respected!
Pros
Air conditioning thru out the building
Cons
Poor Management! job is so boring and no skills to be learned

Pay for one job title, expected to do the work of many.
Production scheduler, shipper, sub assembler. (Former Employee) –  Wooster, OHAugust 10, 2017
The positives of working at Hydac were the PTO time and the 401K match by the company. You are cross trained on many jobs and are expected to do any and all in a given day. Management told me my review doesn't mean anything to anyone but me and we all get the same pay increase. No incentive to Excell. Supervisor threw parts across the shop in anger with no repurcussions. No supervision in the shop and management does not welcome input and ideas to make the work place a team environment. Very disappointing. Not appreciated, disrespected and taken advantage of.
Pros
401K match, PTO time
Cons
Management and supervision is lacking. Disrespect and no encouragement of any kind.

Fast pace environment. Generally OK to work there. Departments in general work well together. The culture is that many do not feel that they have the support to effectively do job and that more support help is needed.
Pros
People

Rigid and not always open to change

It was a great place to work if you dont mind being micro managed
Deburrer (Former Employee) –  Glendale Heights, ILMay 10, 2017
a typical day at HYDAC as a deburrer would consist of gathering specific parts and deburring them after they come out of the machine. I would use various tools to make sure there were no pieces of metal inside the parts.It was very tedious because even the smallest scratch inside the part could damage it, and it was quite easy to stick a drill too far in, or scrape a wall with a knife.

Entrepreneurial, Technical, Solid Company
Territory Manager (Current Employee) –  USAOctober 8, 2015
HYDAC is a privately held, very stable global company that provides interesting challenges everyday. Sales growth through developing customer technical, novel solutions is a great part of the business focus. The hierarchy is relatively flat and decisions are made rapidly. Career growth is encouraged/expected through increasing responsibility as you develop. Along with multiple acquisitions, there has been significant investment in operations to bring world class manufacturing in to new sites in the USA. The conservatively run company, often runs lean so that there is plenty to do; apparently management would rather be lean then layoff employees.
Pros
Stable employment, strong investment in USA manufacturing, great customer relationships, rapid growth
Cons
Lean staffing levels in some areas
