    I worked at Ascent Solar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co worker's. Flexible with your schedule.

    Cons

    Poor pay we got zero raises in 3 years but where expected to somehow compensate for insurance increases every year. In a merger with a Chinese company and who knows what will happen once facility in China is open. Sent more money each quarter then they made living off the Chinese merger money.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate employees for what they are worth. I made alot less an hour than the new hires that i would train.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ascent Solar (Thornton, CO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Ascent Solar hires retail sales associates through a company called The Employment Firm. I saw an ad for employment on Craigslist Denver. I applied online at the TEF website. A few week later I was contacted by Amy at TEF to set up an interview time with her at the TEF Denver location. The interview with Amy was average. A few days after the first interview Amy contacted me to set up an interview at the Ascent Solar corporate offices in Thornton. The interview at Ascent Solar was a two person interview that took about 45 minutes and was also an average interview. At the end of the interview I was made an offer. I was told that the offer would be emailed to me later that day, and that I'd have to e-sign the offer letter.
