    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at W.L. Gore (Flagstaff, AZ) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with 2 engineers and it went well but it was a fast 30 minute or less, I usually have phone interviews that last a full hour that are more in depth of the field of work I am in. They were interested in validation methods I use for injection molds.
    The HR manager emailed me a day later and said they were excited to have me come in for an interview, I called the HR manager back and said that I reviewed WL Gore on several Web sites and the overall outlook was bad for WL Gore. HR was shocked to hear this and stated that no one has ever said this before. I referred to a few friends in the medical industry and they also know that Gore has a unique methodology that may not be suitable for most individuals.
    WL Gore uses Peer to Peer management methods in Flagstaff and would have been a wise choice, also I noticed the glassdoor reviews of previous employees suggested that long term employees about 10years or more were let go or forced out in some ways by younger generations or by management.
