I worked at Capstone Turbine full-time (More than 5 years)
Casual workplace. Flexible work hours. Everybody is very friendly and willing to work together. Get to be innvolved with both the power electronics and mechanical of the turbine engine.
Very high turn over rate. Each new management always eager to implement new changes to the system. The Standard Procedures change every year or as long as the middle management who implemented change still there to enforced it. Work on holidays 80% of the time.
Advice to Management
Stop selling products that are still in prototype.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Capstone Turbine (Chatsworth, CA) in January 2015.
Six 30 minute interviews scheduled with HR, three Product Managers, Customer Service and Sales and Marketing. Interviews were basically conversational. Office environment was hectic and interview times and personnel changed throughout the day. I was notified an offer would be presented within a week of the interview. The actual offer arrived after a background and reference check.
