    I have been working at Capstone Turbine full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family friendly workplace; great opportunities to help make a significant difference to the bottom line; competitive salaries

    Cons

    cash weak company but on the verge of profitability; weak cash position poses significant constraints to accomplish more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to improve focus on core priorities and limit multiple distractions. There are not enough human resources to engage in multiple projects which partially relates back to weak cash position so the need for focus is more important than perhaps larger more profitable companies

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Applications Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chatsworth, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Capstone Turbine in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I noticed the position of Application Engineer posted on the website for Capstone Turbine Corporation and in the process completed the application within a few minutes. About a month later I was then contacted by the HR group and then asked to fill out the typical online forms and verifications. Then no response for several weeks but that’s standard operating procedure until I was then contracted to set up the phone interview.
    I received the call at the specified time by two members of the engineering department and off we went. In the process of the interview I was informed of the position along with the responsibilities which I would have no trouble of performing the task. What I found strange is that this position was titled as Application Engineer and in reality was nothing more than a Technical Representative. All of the engineering on the product along with the applications is completed so therefore all you are doing was merely performing verifications of the installations. Or you are verifying the proposed application the products will go in to for future use. No real follow up interview by the HR staff just a dear john letter and that was about it.
