    I have been working at Hayward Industries full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Nothing positive at this time for Hayward.

    Cons

    Upper management padded their pockets with stock options prior to the sale, began eliminating all employees that helped build the Hayward reputation and is now going down in flames.

    I worked at Hayward Industries full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They offer overtime almost daily.

    Cons

    HR runs through favoritism. Hard work goes unrecognized. Watch out if your a temp, employement is only considered after working close to a year, even then its not garanteed. When i complained to my agency about not being given a break when working a 12 hr shift, they ended my assignment after working as a temp for 10 month 600+ hours

    I have been working at Hayward Industries full-time

    Pros

    Nice people. Good salary. I think the company has potential, as long as management continues working on making it more progressive. Lots of lifers are being phased out to make way for new people with new fresh ideas...hope it continues going in the right direction. Salary seems good.

    Cons

    The company is in a transition phase...was run like a small mom and pop but since they have been bought out it seems like it could be heading in a better direction -- more modern and progressive. They definitely need to work on product R&D...WAY too many product launch delays, it can be very frustrating. Health benefits can be better (not the worst I've seen but room to improve)
