Former Employee - Engineer in Greensboro, NC

I worked at Volvo Trucks as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

You get an inside look at how the big rigs work and how they are designed. The Greensboro facility has extensive testing facilities to allow engineers to understand what makes truck parts fail. A relaxed atmosphere with European customs makes people feel more at home.

Cons

Many new people come in as contractors. To go direct the pay drops 30%. Office politics abound.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO
