    Former Employee - Software Developer in Joplin, MO

    I worked at Ducommun as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I had a high level of autonomy in how I approached projects. Manager was just the best. Relaxed atmosphere. Very intelligent co-workers who were mostly electrical engineers. Worked with the latest versions of Developer Express and AutoCAD and used them on a very fast workstation.

    Cons

    IT locked down the machines, hindering my abilities to install software to get my work done. Very industrial and antiquated offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide new hires with a guide of what to study in order to start deeloping for the systems.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Ducommun in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Initially started as a Temp. The hiring process was very simple. I submitted an application online and was called in less than a week. Phone interview was very simple and was given a date the following Monday for a site visit. After a tour of the facilities I met with the department lead and was hired pending a drug test. When I went full time there was an additional interview with the department manager. Every thing was very friendly and mostly moved quickly, except they wanted me to complete the first 90 temp before going full time.

    Interview Questions
    • Mostly focused on manufacturing process and general information. The big one was to write measurements using decimal rather than fractions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Only negotiation was available with prior experience, of which I had none.
