I have been working at Ascent Solar full-time (More than 8 years)
The technology is great and has substantial promise for lucrative niche markets. The technical and manufacturing people are generally fantastic.
It is a small company and when the pendulum swings, it swings far. Some reorganizations have been better than others.
Advice to Management
Value the people who understand either the technology or the processes to create the technology. Without them, there will not be a product to sell.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ascent Solar (Thornton, CO) in April 2015.
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.
