Mission: Five Years Out is the tangible future. And the people who live and work there know that new technologies, new materials, new ideas and new electronics will make life not only different, but better. Not just cheaper, but smarter. Not just easier, but more ...
I have been working at Arrow Electronics full-time (More than 5 years)
You will meet a lot of solid people here if you can network well and stay out of the politics. There are opportunities to learn new things if you are a productive worker who does not take on more responsibilities in your current role, but instead volunteer for projects in other departments.
Pay. If you start low, you will not get much higher. Sadly, they are losing a lot of good people because they are failing to keep pace with the cost of living in the Denver metro area. Benefits are expensive, especially if you have kids.
Advice to Management
Do not stir the pot and do not encourage low performers to continue being sub-par. Do not block people from moving to other departments if they are qualified because they will just leave and that costs the company a lot of time & money.
The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Arrow Electronics.
This company provided the worst HR experience I've ever witnessed. After having a short call with the hr associate and then hiring manager I was asked to come on site. I told them I am not local, they'll need to fly me in. I was asked to do a skype instead. 1 Skype. Not 4 in a row. I was asked my availability, and then never received a schedule until I followed up with them again a week later to say my availability has changed. That availability was ignored because it was "really hard to reschedule" and the manager didn't want to- even though I had no clue or communication when the 2 hour interview would be. It is not my problem your job is SO hard to accommodate the talent you are trying to attract, Steph k. Your job isn't hard. My job is hard. Scheduling between 2 different people and over 2 weeks is hard- for ME! That's your JOB. Don't complain about how inconvenient it is to take your candidates schedule into consideration. Ever. I was given a schedule for 4 Skype interviews in a row the DAY BEFORE they were supposed to happen, at a time I told them I was NOT available. When the people started calling, they couldn't get their Skype to work because HR screwed up that part too. Wasted time on everyone end and the most convoluted unprofessional HR experience I've ever had.
