Perks of Working Here

Impact
We know that each person does make an impact - whether positive or negative - on their surroundings. We value input from every person no matter their position in the company because every person has value. Without any single employee, we wouldn't be able to do all that we do. We also take pride in the impact we make on our customers. Some of the most common customer feedback we receive is about how thankful they are that we do what we do, and that we do it so quickly and so well. Knowing that, it's hard not to recognize just how much the service we provide matters.
 
Growth
We're a small company with a track record of aggressive growth, with no plans of slowing down. We share our successes with our employees, since without them it wouldn't be possible to do all that we do. To show our appreciation, we offer programs like profit sharing, generous pay raises, and ever-expanding benefits (currently including health insurance, PTO, and retirement contributions). We also encourage our employees to shift and grow in their roles as the company grows.
 
Stability
The pandemic hurt many businesses, some beyond repair. The good news here is that our customer base is constant, so our work is constant. Farms will always need to produce food, new construction and maintenance will always be in demand, and snow will always need to be plowed in the Midwest. Because these recession-resistant industries are our backbone, we can confidently claim to be recession-resistant as well. We always have internal projects going on, so even during periods of lower customer demand, we have work that needs to be done. We have never had to lay off or let go of any of our employees due to lack of work, and we can't imagine that ever being the case in the future.
 
Flexibility
Whether you're looking for part- or full-time work, early or late shifts, three day weekends, or an entirely customized schedule, we'll do our best to accommodate your needs. We also do our best to maximize each employee's interests and skills, regardless of traditional titles or job descriptions.
 
Education
There's no substitute for having a good head on your shoulders, but hard skills aren't innate and everyone is a beginner at some point. We provide as much on-the-job training as is necessary for you to feel comfortable and confident in your responsibilities. We also know the importance of higher education and external certification programs, and are understanding of students' needs for flexibility.
 
Comfort
Look, working in a garage is not a cushy job. But we prioritize your comfort with a temperature controlled environment. We have air conditioning in the summer, and both forced air and in-floor heating in the winter. We also have a fantastic employee break room complete with a fridge and freezer, microwave, toaster oven, griddle, skillet, hot plates, and full dishware. Seriously, it's an entire freaking kitchen.
 
Connection
We're a family here. Most of our employees consider themselves friends outside of work, and we celebrate and struggle together through life's ups and downs. Once a week, the owner Paul provides lunch as an opportunity to connect in the midst of the hustle and bustle. Every summer, everyone is invited to Paul's lake house for a weekend of fun and relaxation.
 
 

Other Possible Jobs and Responsibilities

We respect tradition, but we don't let societal norms hold us back. NEW Hydraulics needs people to perform a wide variety of tasks, and we aren't afraid of mixing and matching responsibilities that don't normally go together. Maybe you like sitting at a computer most of the day, but love getting some fresh air for a few hours a week. Or maybe you like to work with your hands and aren't afraid of getting dirty, but need some time interacting face-to-face with walk-in customers. Or perhaps you love preventing problems from happening by following prescribed procedures, but don't do so well at troubleshooting once a problem pops up. Whatever your blend of interests and skills, you belong here.
 
Below is a sampling of the tasks that we could use your help with on a regular basis at NEW Hydraulics. They are categorized based on traditional job descriptions, but we encourage individuals to break the mold. We're a team, and we love it when our employees have a wide variety of skills in order to cover for and support each other during the ebb and flow of our industry's demands. If you see a handful of tasks from multiple categories that interest you, please don't hesitate to reach out and take the first step to becoming part of our team!
