I worked at Wind River full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
I worked in Wind River's Customer Support Organization for 5+ years (before retiring). What I'll always remember about WR CSO is the way that all of us helped each other. Our customers were themselves software engineers, so in CSO it's one group of engineers helping other engineers. Within CSO we always helped each other without hesitation to resolve customer issues.
With our group scattered around the county, I never met some of my colleagues face-to-face.
Advice to Management
Have the customer support group meet together in person at least once a year.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Wind River in April 2014.
Saw a job posting with Wind River that matched my skills and submitted my resume through WR’s web page. Heard from a human resources staffing coordinator within a few days and got an interview scheduled within a few days. Interview was with supervisors and staff, and in one visit. The interview gave me a clear picture of what the job entailed and the personalities of the team I would be working with. Within a few days I was offered the position and within a few days after that, I received an offer letter. Pretty fast - "within a few days" for each step in the interviewing process.
