    I worked at Tekni-Plex

    Pros

    - Paul Young (CEO) seems to have the right ideas and wants employees to succeed
     - Company is going through a restructuring, which is difficult, but most people are willing to help others even with something not in their job description
     -

    Cons

    - Each team or location does their own thing --- no consistency
     - Many department or business leaders care only about their department and not about the company. This can lead to negative affects for other departments and the company as a whole.
     - Lacking in technology to support information gathering and analysis

    Maintenance Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Lawrenceville, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Lawrenceville, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Tekni-Plex in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone screening was positive. At in-person interview, had to wait an hour after scheduled time due to their meetings. Maintenance mgr. gave impression that he just wasn't interested in interviewing, didn't seem to have a wealth of knowledge about industrial maintenance, talking about how "big" machines are is a dead giveaway. I got the impression that they were in over their heads and stressed to the max.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard textbook questions even by maintenance mgr., entry level type "Where do you want to be 5 years from now". The entire process seemed geared towards illiterates instead of seasoned professionals.   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
