    I worked at Alliant Techsystems full-time (More than 10 years)


    High level of employee engagement. Great benefits. Excellent training and employee development tools. Lots of incentives for those who work hard. Company invests in equipment and training to increase productivity and bottom line. Safety is #1.


    Company doesn't seem to understand the impact its random acquisitions and closures do to the employees and the communities it leaves in the dust.

    Advice to Management

    Onalaska should never have been closed.

    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Alliant Techsystems (Minneapolis, MN).


    One day visit to talk with the Vice President and then joined a group meeting. I had met senior people in my previous position and they asked me to come to for a visit to their headquarters. The visit was not structured and was treated as a formality. However, the team could never get final approval to make an offer. This went on for several months as they tried to get the position approved.
