    Pros

    The facility is beautiful and love the cafeteria! Work was OK and there was definite room to change departments and grow as an employee.

    Cons

    It was very micro-managed.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do their jobs and not hoover over them as closely.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Olympus Corporation of the Americas (Center Valley, PA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Came back from an interview I had back in December because of a hiring freeze. Received an offer and then told me they couldn't verify my education. I never had any trouble with my past employers on verifying my education. I had my identity stolen a few months ago and believe this was this issue. They refused to talk to my institution to verify that I had my degree. Horrible company that only thinks of you as a number. Thank God I didn't get hired by them.
