My career at HF was challenging, yet rewarding. There was opportunity to work with the industry's best engineers and the company supported design development with the latest software tools. HF, Inc. often developed manifold valve assemblies to meet very specific customer needs, often including new components.

Hydra Force was a high speed production environment. It consisted of heavy lifting as well as working on a assembly line. They had five day a week work schedules plus a OT on Saturday but all shifts where 10 to 12 hours.
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – July 5, 2017
They hired me directly out of college, it was a good starting point. It was a very aggressive atmosphere with little tools provided. The CEO fired the Director of Quality when I was there, that tells a story.
Other employees were plesant to work with
Little to no technican support for the Engineers, design fixtures and build them yourself.

Assembler (Former Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – January 25, 2017
This job taught me my work ethic. I built hydraulic cartridge valves and tested them. Long shifts and even longer weeks. The hardest part of the job was the strenuous labor combined with standing for 10 plus hours.
Good pay and overtime.
Management was horrible as far as dealing with employees.
My day begins with a brief overview of the main objective for the shift, production levels and forecast and safety briefing. I have learnt a lot about working with people from different cultures and languages. management employs a policy of safety first which in turn fosters a safe and productive environment. Working with people from different is sometimes difficult ,but over time i have learnt the value of team work. The hardest part of the day is working with machines that either breaks down or is not running at the optimum speed. The most enjoyable part is completing an emergency order to the satisfaction of the customer.
