    Pros

    It is a global company with a multitude of cultures. Gives you an opportunity to experience the world within a company.

    Cons

    Strictly my opinion, the biggest challenge I faced was not being given the chance to succeed in my endeavors. Had the rug pulled out from under me several times with projects cancelled.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Empower the people

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Alfa Laval (Portsmouth, VA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    This company pulled my resume off an internet job board and asked if I may be interested in a position. Decided to express some interest and had a phone interview within a couple of days after filling out the application. Next I got was a phone interview for screening purposes. That interview was neutral. Two weeks later I got an email asking me to do a phone interview. This second phone interview was dull. The questions seemed to be the same but worded different. I also didn't feel as the questions focused on my ability to perform the job.
