    I worked at CALIBRE Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Employee ownership; the company is made of great people who care about helping their customers succeed. Compared to its competitors, CALIBRE cares more.

    Cons

    I worked there over 10 years, and I'd say that it's trying to figure out how to be a big company and maintain its culture - that's probably where some of the bad reviews are coming from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on the culture - empower the employees who are entrepreneurs AND the ones who want to do a great job for their customers and maintain a balanced life.

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at CALIBRE Systems in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my Resume after an email was sent expressing interest in me, That was on a Tuesday, I interviewed on Friday. The interview was about an hour long in front of six men each with a sheet of questions to answer. They explained there benefits package and gave me a packet explaining it all. We discussed Salary and I was given what I asked for. Ten days later I was offered the job by the HR rep. Later that day I received a call from the V.P. of Logistics to officially accept the job. I was quickly emailed four documents, An offer letter, security clearance form, another benefits packet and a welcome letter. I filled out the offer letter and security form and faxed back to them right away. While on the phone for my official offer I was informed my start date would be six week later that was a bit of a surprise. I was called by my new supervisor after two weeks to come in and be fitted for uniforms and take a tour of the facility.

    Interview Questions
