    I have been working at Aerojet Rocketdyne full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, every other Friday off, co-workers are pleasant

    Cons

    Software used is not beneficial... it has changed a few times since I have worked there and the "bugs" have not been worked out.

    Advice to Management

    Make more opportunities to appreciate your employees

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne in May 2017.

    Interview

    Initial interview came about because of an employee referral, however the process was still slow. I get a phone interview within the first 2 weeks and another was scheduled via phone about 3 weeks later. I was out of state at the time. Both interviews were both informational and candidate screenings. Typical interview questions were asked. Each interviewer did want to see an genuine interest in the line of work and position. The three different people I interviewed with were all very kind and personable. Third interview was in person, and because I was out of state at the time their travel desk set up a full travel itinerary for me. I could not be more happy with the accommodations and the trip as a whole. The in person interview was comfortable, and showed genuine interest in me as a candidate. My only complaint is the whole process is going to take 2-3 months until I am on board from the initial interview. This is relatively normal for job searching of course, but it is a big organization that moves slowly start times.
