I have been working at Freudenberg-NOK full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Flex time is fantastic. Ability to make your own schedule, to an extent, and to learn in a fairly hands on environment.Cons
Training is fairly loose. Can be too slow for some. It can also come across as disjointed. Communication between sales people and plants is lacking and can be almost hostile at times.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Become more involved with system tools. Holes is training and software capabilities are frustrating to the staffRecommendsPositive Outlook

I applied online. The process took 6 days – interviewed at Freudenberg-NOK in May 2014.Interview Details
I was contacted by a Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist regarding my resume/application for a job in one of their plants. The preliminary phone interview was brief and to the point. I was sent a questionnaire to fill in, which I did and returned within the allotted timeframe.
I am a 20 year military veteran retiring from the armed forces with over ten years of experience, education and training in this field. While I do not expect that those credentials entitle me to a job, the fact that I am a human being interested in this company entitles me to a modicum of courtesy.
I never heard back from my point of contact. I called once leaving a professional message, emailed twice also professionally and politely and still received no response ever.
Though I truly understand that recruiters are very busy, have to sort through hundreds/thousands of resumes and probably do not have enough hours in the day, I still believe everyone has time for courtesy. Especially when that person is the face/representative for a company such as this.
I was very disappointed in the lack of professional courtesy I was afforded versus the amount of feedback and follow up I have encountered from other companies during my career search.Interview Questions
