    I worked at Abrasive Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Engineering position is very hands-on; the diversity of challenges offers variety and opportunities for professional growth (though not much advancement); decent pay, benefits; mostly good people to work with, especially the engineering team; good work-life balance

    Cons

    Most of the middle managers were incompetent, though I hear this is turning around; some of the manufacturing associates are difficult to work with; hazardous chemicals

    Advice to Management

    Consider more incentives for excellent manufacturing associates and work on your metrics for identifying excellence. Good trainers / shift leaders are extremely rare and valuable. You lost a number of them due to frustration and poor choices by middle management.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Abrasive Technology (Columbus, OH) in July 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed with hiring leader (the HR lead person) and an HR person. (They use alternative titles as a way of not getting stuck in the stereotypes of tradition. The interview required one hour. They spoke of not being quite sure what they were looking for. They asked few questions. They answered questions I had with honesty. Interesting company - liked their philosophy towards work and their willingness to step outside the norm as a business. I was dissapointed at their lack of preparation.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no specific questions - the conversation was general about background - I found I asked more questions than they did.   Answer Question
