    I worked at Vestas Wind Systems full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits working for a Scandinavian Company. Nice work life balance with flexible working schedules. With any large company, managerial professionalism varied across the organization. but I felt fortunate to have such great leadership.

    Cons

    Limited ability to move up within departments. Large organization that doesn't move very fast with strategic initiatives, likely due to the rapid growth they had in the mid 2000's which they're still catching up with. The term "Vestas Busy" is very prevalent across the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on cross organizational message consistency; What was heard in one business unit was often elaborately different within another.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vestas Wind Systems (Brighton, CO) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I was a part of a group-interview process. There were about 60 of us broken up into small groups. Each group was assigned one of fiver or six different tasks, such as building a Lego truck by following visual instructions. At the same time, a supervisor would ask each person a few standard interview questions. Each group rotated through every task and spoke with all of the supervisors present. I was called later that evening and told that I was on the priority list for hiring and given a formal one-on-one interview.

    Interview Questions

    • "What does Craftsmanship mean to you?" "Describe you past experience working as part of a team."   Answer Question
