    I have been working at Douglas Dynamics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Douglas is a fantastic company to work for. Employees are given many opportunities to contribute to many aspects of the business which provides a level of ownership for everyone. Ideas for continuous improvement are encouraged even when they fall outside of current area of responsibility.

    Cons

    There still seems to be a sense of "us versus them" feeling with manufacturing locations. The culture of one family is not necessarily always led from top down and sometimes even seems to be misguided by some in management. Best practices should be shared and encouraged not fought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more unification of ideas between locations. Challenge business units to come together on common grounds and ensure that the corporate vision is shared at all levels of the organization.

    Product Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Douglas Dynamics in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very informal questions. There were several people present at the on-site interview which seems silly since it ends up being 4 on 1 instead of several 1-on-1 discussions with a collaboration at the end. After the on-site I immediately was asked to have a phone interview with someone at corporate (engineering director). Very similar loose/informal questions, mostly personality related. They seem focused on finding a good fit for the culture (they did mention it) though I'm unsure if they know how to approach that ideal properly.

    Overall, it seemed to go well and after asking about "next steps," I was told that I would be given further steps or at least some feedback, though I never heard back from anyone after thank-you emails and following up; I question their integrity and process since they made it very clear that they would follow up though never did. Pretty unprofessional and a waste of my time.
