    good company to work for.A lot to learn and very helpful people.New and interesting things to work on.


    too much red tape .Need to hire more people and young too.there are backlogs and staff is overload with their work.

    Advice to Management

    get to hire more people and look after the staff.Do not think just about shares ,also it is important for the employer to earn the respect of employees.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at MTS Systems.


    Use internal contractors to contact and do initial screening of candidates. Then it moves directly to the hiring manager to will typically do a phone screen. Once your past the phone screen will be brought internal for interviews with Engineering, Marketing, Sales and management executive. They will each focus on a specific skills, knowledge or behaviors. They typically like to bring in about 3-5 candidates for a role before a decision is made on any of the people. Some roles will fill in about 1-2 months from start to finish while others have stretched out to more like 3 months before a final hiring decision is made.
