Pros

Swagelok treats all of their employees like members of the family. They are very open with all of their employees about the performance of the company. They also make sure that you are very involved with your career planning, and are very accommodating to any moves you want to make within the company to broaden your experience.

Cons

The vast majority of the opportunities within Swagelok are in the Cleveland area, so mobility to other geographic regions is limited.

    Pros

    As a temp. worker - none.

    Cons

    Where to begin? This is a boring, bland JOB. There is not 1 positive thing that I can say about Swagelok. It is a (low wage) paycheck & that's it. They treat temp workers different from full-time employees. They even have to wear a darker colored uniform.
     I was let go after 3 weeks because I was told that I was not "catching on" to their shipping system. I an not stupid & I really tried to make it work. Their system makes no logical sense & I told them about it. They don't care, they said, you'll catch on. There are at least 4-5 different type of orders & different ways to process each of them. I was shown ONCE how to do it and was given a few example sheets of paper to use as a guide. Anytime that I had a question, the person who was supposedly training me acted angry & frustrated that I was "bothering" him with questions. He was not friendly at all because it must be hard to be when you work at Swagelok. I was glad when my recruited told me that he was placing me somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have someone who cares about the success of your company actually take some time to actually train temp. workers correctly rather then have an angry, bitter employee (who obviously is tired of having to train temps all of the time). It was a very unpleasant experience working @ Swagelok & I'm glad that I'm gone.
