    I have been working at Hexcel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work here is not bad at all. You only work half the year. Also we get 7 days off Once a month! Schedule can be a bit challenging. We work days and nights as well as during the weekend depending on the shift you are on. These are 12hr shifts.

    Cons

    The challenges of working here is mainly the schedule. If you can be able to plan your family times around your days off then you should be okay.

    Advice to Management

    Management is okay. I would definitely say they are working to become a better department overall. Communication is definitely there but the actions to solving work problems can be a quite better than what we are seeing here.

    I worked at Hexcel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ok company to work for short term, but only for the desperate. Ok benefits, company is doing well financially. Most people are friendly. No special talent or skills needed to maintain a job at Hexcel, so you can stay as long as you want without losing your job.

    Cons

    Pay is below market average. Management is not very good and is rude. I would avoid this company. If you can find work elsewhere, please work there. Most of the managers spend their days in meetings discussing the same topic over and over.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make attainable goals.

    I worked at Hexcel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Big break rooms, super clean/safe work environment

    Cons

    Management has no respect for employees, job security is absolutely AWFUL and training of new employees is non-existent

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat your employees. You have good workers come in and fire them for forgetting to tie their shoe in the morning. Eventually everyone will get fired

    I worked at Hexcel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    High salary for the area, but only after 2 years.

    Cons

    Bad management, No room for advancement, no work/life balance, Rude & Ignorant Co-Workers, No StandardizedTraining, Low Pay For the 1st 2 Years, Favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Respect your hard workers, not the ones that have been there for 20+ years. There's a reason that the workforce keeps trying to become organized/represented (Union).
