    I have been working at Luvata full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a large company with good benefits. Comfortable work environment and lots of good people in all departments.

    Cons

    Lack of connection between departments. Poor planning and communication. Lack of direction from upper management as well as a lack of commitment to employee and new business development.

    Advice to Management

    Abandon the antiquated management style of last century and embrace modern technology.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Luvata in August 2013.

    Interview

    Recruiter emails me saying that he's following up w/ me about this position that we discussed (this never happened, but I wasn't going to pass up a potential job offer). He sends me the info. He calls and texts me every day up until the day b4 the interview...non-stop basically trying to sell me the job position and how great the company is. He kept harping me about speaking up more and have a conversation w/ the interviewers. He sends me samples interview questions to study from along w/ the names of the 3 interviewers. Day of the interview, 2/3 persons were part of the conference call interview. 1 was HR and 1 was engineering.

    Interview Questions

    • None, really. But they were pretty hung up on my design engineering background and experience, whereas the position was mainly process engineering (of which is my most recent experience).   Answer Question
