    I worked at Electro-Motive full-time (less than a year)


    Decent and fair pay, seems like the standard corporate environment, people are nice and friendly, decent hours and work load. I would go back if needed a job.


    Garbage must be taken out by yourself which in my opinion is a huge setback on productivity compared to having a cleaner come in and take out all the garbage bags in the morning like my current company. There are no restaurants nearby unless you drive for a couple miles, food from the vending machines should not even be eaten.

    Interview Details

    I got the interview through a staffing agency. First they make you watch a video about safety through the testing site. Then I interviewed with the hiring manager and the supervisor. The asked me about my technical experience. Then they walked me through the company showing how work was to be done, which took up most of the interview.
