"Employer informed after interview they like keeping oeople waiting so will inform if i got position at least by next week. Didnt hear anything for antoher month. They went through 2 staffing agencies to get me hired on and it was confising and frustaiting took 3 weeks. Once i started my first day they sent me back to another side of town because they fualed to give me drug test information before hand. And i couldnt work before taking drug test. The peraon they had me shadowing talked about everyone to me the whole time and compakined about horrible pay for too mich work. I had grew frustrated and resigned .

"I've only been with the company a week or so. So far I've clicked with the team and management. The work environment is your usual cube setup. Safety is job one in everything we do. I have a good bit of leeway in getting my job completed. It should be a good job for the long haul."

"The people are great, but the environment can be difficult to adapt to. Compensation is awesome, but don't bank on bonuses. Health benefits are sub-par. Death by meetings, which is pretty standard in large corporations these days. There is very limited avenue for growth, and rising tends to involve switching departments or even leaving and returning. There is a constant worry about layoffs due to realignment of resources toward R&D (code words). A lot has been outsourced. Enthusiastic CEO."
