    Current Employee - Field Service Engineer

    I have been working at Alstom Power full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Training, Location, Salary, ability to learn about various different systems relating to power plants.

    Cons

    Travel can be pretty extensive at times, but when not at customer sites most of time is spent working from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When known, upcoming schedule should be shared. A lot of times we have no idea what is going on until told to depart for a specific job, only to find out later it was on a schedule (not seen by the field engineers) for a while before start date. Makes it very difficult to schedule personal things like family functions and appointments.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Alstom Power.

    Interview Details

    This is a very lengthy and confusing process for this company. I applied for the position in early November. I was contacted by HR regarding my application on the Friday after Thanksgiving. I was invited to the office for an interview 2 weeks later (mid-December). I didn't hear anything from anyone after the interview, until the end of January. I received an offer a month later, and started working until the end of March. So the whole process took 4+ months. Good thing I was already employed elsewhere!

    Negotiation Details
    There is little to no negotiation. I managed to negotiate an additional week of vacation.
