    I have been working at Astronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    9/80 schedule is awesome and the manufacturing environment is very clean. The company is growing as are the bonus checks. My supervisor is generally a good person who I feel comfortable with talking to about anything. Being in manufacturing for a while, this is the first company that has listened to me and made sure to follow up with me in regards to concerns I have had.
    I don't do the same thing everyday and that's also nice.
    Most of the people I work with are fantastic and very helpful.

    Cons

    The wages are lower than other places I have worked. I have moved quickly up "associate levels" because I am ambitious so that's helped.
    There are a few people here that are miserable and blame everyone for everything because that's how they entertain themselves, but most of us either don't bother with them or ignore them, but they are here...like everywhere else I've worked.
    I work in JSF and there are just two miserable women that just have nasty things to say 24/7 no matter how much people have tried to work with them. Everyone else in JSF is awesome and my PTA is also pretty great.

    Advice to Management

    To people who think you don't listen--don't listen to them! Most of us see you are working with us and doing what you can. We wish you didn't have as many meetings so we can interact with you more, but you do a really great job of saying hello and being supportive. So, thank YOU.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Astronics (Clackamas, OR) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I interviewed at MaxVis. The process was low key. I met with the hiring manager, some engineers, the person leaving the position, and a peer of his. The person leaving was retiring. He did not seem happy to have me there. I don't know why since we had never met before. They are proud of their work, which is as it should be, but they made the actual design work sound like it was a lot more impressive than it actually was. The level of complexity is actually not that great at all. I met with an electrical and mechanical engineer, and the materials coordinator. Nice people but I did not have any very difficult questions to answer. I was told they would make a decision soon. Several days later I emailed HR to send references and check on the status. I was told that the hiring manager was away on business but I was very much in the running. I still did not hear anything and an email I sent asking if the position was closed was not replied to.
