I have been working at Carl Zeiss full-time (Less than a year)
Decent pay, good support team, and good co-workers
Main con is travel if you are opposed to it.
Advice to Management
I would suggest being less picky about where exactly your service techs live within their region.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Carl Zeiss (Maple Grove, MN) in September 2015.
One of the nicest interviews I've ever had. Met with Quality Manager and his boss. I applied on-line and was called the next week to drive up to Minnesota the next day. I was surprised as they wanted to interview me in person without going through the typical phone interview process. Unfortunately by skipping this step, It was not noticed that I was missing CMM skills, which appeared necessary. Interview lasted 2 hours.
