    Pros

    Good place to gain experience before moving on to better paying job.

    Cons

    Revolving door company. Technical experience and intellectual property leave with the employees. Employees are replaced with new inexperienced employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management is too top heavy. Too many supervisors, managers and directors. Very small amount of people getting work done on the line.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Lectrus (Houston, TX) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The process from interview to offer is fast! From the initial interview, it took less than three days. The interviewers are personable and help the interviewee to feel at ease.
    The property is nice and well kept, though there seems to be a lack of employee parking as many employees were parked on the grass off the main drive. With this type of manufacturing company however, this isn't unusual.
    Employees in general seem to be happy to work there. The atmosphere was generally positive and employees were very kind in offering any type of assistance required.
    The company seems to be undergoing quite a few changes at this time which provides great opportunities to all employees to make a big impact in a short period of time. Everone spoken with seems to be very excited to see where the business will go and how much growth it will experience within the next twelve months.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your management style and how do you achieve the goals you wish to reach with direct reports? How do you manage a direct report who, after explaining the reasoning behind a set goal, still refuses to cooperate or strive to reach the objective?   Answer Question
    • After being at your current position for slightly over a year, why are you looking to make a change?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation is possible to a point. Advice: Have numbers to back up your negotiating position!!!

    If the commute is considerable further than your current employer, be able to spell it out with mileage, gas prices, differences between your current commute and your expected commute. Include any tolls or other expenses you may incur.

    This can help you set a break even salary by adding the additional commuting costs to your current salary and allow you to see what the absolute minimum acceptable salary will be.

    Be able to back up your salary, vacation, work times, and any other requests you would like to use in negotiations with the most current data possible. Companies like numbers and if you have the data to back up your position, you are more likely to achieve the results you want.
