OSI offers flexible work hours, casual dress code, very affordable high-value health insurance, free pop, a beautiful building/work environment, a free onsite fitness center, etc. We also get new laptops every few years which is nice. The work is satisfying and challenging; there is always a full work load / lots to accomplish. OSI offers on-the-job training for all new employees. Most of the employees are pretty great people to work with- very smart, motivated, etc.
Medina is a bit far from the city / long commute. They offer limited options to work from home but sometimes it is approved. Some of the supervisors / managers are new to the role, and should probably have more leadership training before getting direct reports.
Advice to Management
Consider giving employees the option to work remotely. Do more supervisor and leadership training for your new supervisors and managers.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Open Systems International (Medina, MN) in May 2014.
I had applied online and got a phone call from HR person regarding setting up phone interview with an Engineer. The phone interview was quick and effective. I was asked to explain about my internship. The engineer was convinced about my technical knowledge and did not ask any further technical questions. Later, I was scheduled for an onsite interview and all expenses were paid for. The onsite consisted of five 1:1 interviews. They had all technical and behavioral questions. I also had an IQ test and a technical test. Both were easy and doable. I got the offer within 5 days.
