    I have been working at Haynes International full-time

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are good, The work and hours are good, I have had excellent opportunity for growth within my position, and had good opportunity for growth up to my current position.

    Cons

    There are some working relationships that can be frustrating because there are individuals within the organization that are not always interested in doing what is in best interest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Respect every employee regardless of their position we all have an important role within the company. The majority of the people here want to do a good job but they do often feel beat down.

    I worked at Haynes International as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Most of the people I met were very friendly and courteous, wanted to make the company better
    - As an intern, you get a lot of exposure to upper level management
    - Work was very rewarding and gets you exposed to a true factory setting

    Cons

    - I wish that they had a better system for going between the two main plant areas
    - A cheat sheet maybe for interns, with terms both internal and industry?

    Advice to Management

    Work to bridge disconnect between management and workers, the workers truly want to do a great job but sometimes don't feel that the support is there

    Pros

    8 to 5
    Insurance Benefits offered

    Cons

    No professionalism amongst management
    No preservation of manpower for the future
    Low Salary
    Lack of Common Sense in regards to menial issues
    No incentive for self progression
    No line between Salary and Union

    Advice to Management

    Modernize management. Do away with the 30 plus year saturation of employees who move no faster than slugs. Haynes has had no problem cutting the livelihoods of its employees in the past. Plant wide, the preservation of future talent is being lost every day. Technical training is not occurring within the departments, nor do supervisors and managers train their subordinates as replacements. The lack of professionalism amongst salaried employees would be frowned upon by any other company. DSO looks like a waste management plant inside and out. Housekeeping is a joke across the board, to include upper echelon management. I honestly am ashamed to work for this company, but am to prideful of what Haynes achieves, to walk out.

    Pretty much free to do what you want. Vacation time is great. OT paid for weekend work.

    Cons

    If ur not related or go to church with upper management then expect to work the off shifts

    Advice to Management

    Be fair

    I have been working at Haynes International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The wages are pretty good and there are opportunities for overtime on regular basis. The benefits are decent for todays standards. Work schedule is standard 8 hour shifts Monday through Friday with the exception of overtime.

    Cons

    The management has created a very poor relationship with the workforce. Management does not want to get along with the workforce at all and has the stance that ruling with an "iron fist" will get the work out the door. General attitude of the workforce is very poor and unproductive.

    Advice to Management

    Get along with the people on the floor and listen to what they have to say. WORK TOGETHER!

    I worked at Haynes International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The department I worked in was like a family. My boss was very receptive to my suggestions. I was able to take the lead and do my job without being micro-managed and was rewarded for the work that I did.

    Cons

    The posting of jobs outside of the company when the management already knew who they were going to put in the job that was open did bother me. As someone that knows what it is like to be searching for a job, I felt this was unfair to outside job seekers. I know it was policy but it still waste time and money as the managers still had to interview the outside job seekers knowing full well they were not going to hire them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing this.

    Pros

    The GM is awsome and trying to change the culture.

    Cons

    The Union and the amount of OT hourly employees work. 7 days a week 12 months a year.

    Advice to Management

    Change your polical ways. Stop working against each other and start work together. Many lives are at stake.
