    I worked at Specialty Coating Systems full-time (more than 3 years)


    It's a company on the rise. They offer great benefits, good diversity of customers, and overall a great innovative product.


    Serious lack of communication. Zero middle management. Offer terrible terrible wages for the amount of responsibility placed on employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your workforce happy. COMPENSATE them accordingly with demands you place on them. Don't hesitate to provide ENOUGH of the RIGHT tools that are needed to complete a work instruction. Get people cross trained!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Specialty Coating Systems in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Received a phone call to set up a phone interview. Two days later had the phone interview. The questions asked were very basic, and were mainly used to screen candidates for face-to-face interviews. I was granted a second in-person interview at the end of the phone conversation. The in person interview took place the following week. It consisted of a 1:1 interview with the individual who would make the final hiring decision, and then led to a 2:1 interview with the same gentleman and his boss. The interview lasted approximately 1.5 hours. I received a phone call a few days later asking me to come in for a second face-to-face interview. Second interview happened the following week. I met with multiple people, which included the: corporate recruiter, department head, and then finally back to the gentleman who would make the final hiring decision (again).

    Overall, my experience was a positive one. The process was incredibly unconventional, and did not follow a particular procedure. The individual making the final decision had no formal training on hiring or interviewing, so it was a very relaxed interviewing environment. I personally appreciated it, but I could see how someone would find it frustrating. I would dare to say that this isn't normal for SCS, and that my interview process was circumstantial. Regardless, SCS seems to be an outstanding company that I would've happily accepted an offer from.
