I have been working at E.A. Fischione Instruments full-timeRecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
While it has been in business for nearly 50 years, Fischione has been experiencing an explosion in growth in the past ~5 years. The company is developing cutting edge technology, is making bold moves into new markets, and has been adding first-rate talent to fill key product development positions.
The management is open to new ideas. It has shown a willingness to try new approaches and to allow employees who show initiative to expand programs within their area of expertise.
The company is growing fast. One must be flexible to work in such an environment. Sometimes there is no existing infrastructure to support your initiatives, therefore, you have to devise the infrastructure, document it, and make it the new SOP. If you find such a scenario to be exciting and challenging, then it is not a negative, at all. If you find such a scenario scary or too stressful, then yes, it would be a negative.
Advice to Management
Continue doing what you are doing: keep investing in top-level talent, keep pushing product innovation, and keep pursuing new markets.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at E.A. Fischione Instruments.
1. Email received from external HR firm to complete a PRO job fit personality survey.
2. Phone call to set up initial interview at HR firm, here you will take another test and do an initial screening with the HR people, they are not affiliated with Fischione in any way, just asking questions to report to management.
3. Phone call from Fischione to set up internal interview, if you are ok'd to proceed in the hiring process.
4. On site interview goes like this: Arrive at scheduled time, stand in the machine shop area and dial a number to let them know you are there. Wait for someone to come get you and take you to a conference room. Wait for all the interviewers to get to the room. They will ask questions pertaining to what you should be expected to do in the job. If management is available you will then meet individually with the CFO and CEO, they will ask similar questions to the first team as well as questions that may have nothing to do with the job, yet those answers will be equally judged.
5. If you continue on the hiring process a second interview may be scheduled with different individuals in the company for their input. Otherwise, you will be contacted with an offer.
6. Negotiate. Start out high, but don't be afraid to negotiate.
