    I have been working at Nordson full-time (more than 3 years)


    Plenty of opportunities if you are a hard worker and can transfer your knowledge easily. Management looks positive on someone who can add solutions, not complain.


    Location, location, location. Wish they would bring back manufacturing!

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Nordson.

    Interview Details

    Started with phone screen with HR, followed by in person interview with Manager (1 on 1) and various Engineers (1 on 1), followed by a return trip for interview with Sr. Manager who was not available that same day of initial interview. After interview with manager was complete, they provided a small tour of the manufacturing area.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was tough to get them to budge, asked for sign on bonus and negotiated on that in order to consider accepting and accepted one after some negotiation on the bonus portion. Recommend refusing to provide current or last salary because they will not move much past what your previous employer was compensating.
    Accepted Offer
