Company offers good benefits and opportunities for people willing to move with promotions to the various buildings but suffers from a lack of direction and accountability in management and engineering.

ASSEMBLY WORKER & CAROUSEL OPERATER (Former Employee) –  Solon, OHJanuary 8, 2019
The workplace culture at this facility was very fast paced, typical factory workplace, however what set Swagelok apart from other factories was the opportunity for advancement and employee perks that were available over time.

Welder Level 2 (Current Employee) –  Solon, OHJanuary 5, 2019
Swagelok is a great job. You learn a lot there and get your certifications. You have to put in the work though, but hard work pays off. Best job I’ve worked besides the coworkers and drama that goes on. But that’s at every job.
Pros
Free fruit and bagels. Coffee. Refreshments.
Cons
Only 2 breaks

Swagelok is a very good place to work
Set-up level 1/Operator (Current Employee) –  Highland Heights, OHJanuary 1, 2019
Swagelok is a very good place to work. I personally drove myself to learn. Training is not what you get but what you take from it and I have. I would recommend Swagelok to people in this area
Pros
Training, fruit, bagels, soda, coffee, tea

Quality Assurance Inspector (Former Employee) –  Solon, OHDecember 28, 2018
Mandatory overtime and working 6 days a week is not enjoyable when it keeps you from your family. Working with young individuals who don't care about the quality of their work was also not favorable
Pros
people
Cons
hours, mandatory overtime

Principal Lead Applications Engineer (Former Employee) –  Solon, OHDecember 22, 2018
Good place to work and very good benefits. Values the development of the younger associates. More experienced technical associates have a more difficult time advancing if they are not interested in the management track. There is a good emphasis on continuous improvement, both in company infrastructure, but also in the processes.
Pros
Personal Development and Leadership emphasis
Cons
Lost its family-oriented feel over the years, becoming less personable within departments.

It was a nice place to work. The people were friendly but if you got hired through a temp service it was extremely hard to be hired directly. However, it was a great experience!

Most of the time it was ok, but would be nice to get paid for your worth.
Weld Examiner/Warehouse Lead/Manager (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCNovember 29, 2018
The enjoyable part was the once a year kick-off event, where we went on a trip for 1-2 nights. Some of the management doesn't know how to do the job of who they are over for the most part. A lot of meetings for the same thing. Had personal training to learn for the department you are in, even if you didn't need it, or used it, still had to take the course.
Pros
Monthly lunches
Cons
It's like there are 2 different Handbooks for one company.

CNC Machinist Setup/Operator (Current Employee) –  Willoughby Hills, OHNovember 16, 2018
Swagelok can be good for beginner CNC operators that need experience. Supervisors are too busy with their "projects" to really care about what's going on in their departments, and same goes to most of the upper management. You can move up in the company, but not by the work you do. You either have to know someone or really suck up to your superiors. They pay based on how old you are vs. how well you do your job.
Pros
Decent benefits, decent pay for less skill, company stock
Cons
Poor management, less pay for more skill, poor raises

Process Operator II (Former Employee) –  Solon, OHNovember 14, 2018
Strong caring culture. A place where hard work and dedication are expected.

Cons

Has always rewarded everyone the same so sometimes extra effort and success is not recognized.

Advice to Management

Middle Management is stretched so thin, they don’t have time to communicate as much as needed.

Good job security, but hard to advance & management is making too many changes that adversly affect hourly wage employees
Tool Crib Operator (Current Employee) –  Willoughby Hills, OhioNovember 11, 2018
I've learned how to maintain high quality standards & how to help others maintain high quality standards, how to maintain a safe work environment, how to communicate effectively with supervisors & co-workers, how to sustain consistently high production levels.
Pros
Job security
Cons
frequent changes in management, & therefore, production plans; reduction in the quality of health benefits, poor or non-existent training programs.
