    I have been working at Curtiss-Wright full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    My coworkers are amazing and gel to get product done and out the door in a timely manner.Family friendly company if an emergency occurs at work with kids etc..Worked 4-10hr shifts for 8 years and had 3 days to spend with family or getting errands done.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are limited and unknown.The company changed work schedule to 5-8's after many of us worked 4-10's for years.Tensions have grown due to this change and coworkers are missing at least one day a week to get personal needs taken care of.In turn adding unintentional stress on remaining department team..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time with lower level staff members and learn what they do.Don't rely on "your door being open" expecting them to come to you.. Go to the floor and see 1st hand whats going on and how to improve it.

    Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Curtiss-Wright in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    Curtiss-Wright, San Diego. I had an initial phone screen with HR. The engineering manager was scheduled to call me on a Thursday for a phone interview. He didn't call. I informed HR, and they rescheduled for the following day. Again no call from the engineering manger. About two weeks later (week before xmas) HR called again to reschedule. I told them that I would be out of town for the next two weeks, but I said I would make time for the interview and they could call me at the hotel. The day before the interview they e-mailed to say that they didn't want to interview me if I wouldn't be available to start work immediately (the week before xmas?). I told them that if they wanted, I would do the interview by phone and fly back home at my own expense to do an in-person interview. They said OK. I took the afternoon off and waited in my hotel room for the call, but of course, the engineerng manager never called.
