    Pros

    99% of the people are great and fun to work with.

    Cons

    My boss was three states away. Although I thought he was a good guy, it was difficult being so far away. Managers in other departments were very poor. Although this employee was not in my department, FWG kept him on as a manager after repeated failures and ethics violations. No opportunities to grow/learn. The company does not pay well.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the dead WEIGHT managers and give your employees the opportunity to grow.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Farnsworth Group Inc in April 2014.

    Interview

    There was a two-step interview process. The first interview was done over the phone with the head of HR. This was a very informal interview where she explained the job responsibilities, expectations, salary, and work hours. We then went on to some generic questions about my employment eligibility and possession of a driver license. Finally, we went over my work history very briefly. I was told I would be contacted if selected for the followup interview. This interview took half an hour. The second interview was also conducted over the phone (since I live on the other side of the country). For the second interview I was put on speaker phone and spoke to the area supervisor and an additional staff engineer. They again went over the job expectations and answered any questions I had. They then started going over my resume so I could discuss my experience in more detail. The questions were the typical ones you get asked in every interview. The second interview took an hour and was very relaxed and informal as well.
