    I worked at MEC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Mec is a great Company. The people are very focussed on the job and the work flow. There is lots of room for advancement here at MEC.

    Cons

    There seems to be too much overhead and not enough employees. We all had to take a pay cut and when they finally started giving it back a little at a time then laid most of us off instead. When we went to the Christmas party there was so much over heat that I have never seen at our location, and a quarter of us left were employees. I worked in Screaming Circuits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as valued people. When you bring on a very bad man to replace a wonderful boss maybe you should listen to who he is bullying not just lay off everyone. I hear he is still there and most of the bosses are gone. I suspect he may have been the reason they are gone.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at MEC.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via a recruiter who did a prescreening over the phone, which was very brief. He basically wanted to see what types of roles I would be interested in. I then did an in-person interview with two different people. Pretty casual, more like a conversation that an interview. I was offered the position later that same day.
