    Approves of CEO


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

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Capstone Turbine (Chatsworth, CA) in January 2015.

The actual offer arrived after a background and reference check.
