This friendly competition challenges employees to take more steps each day and get healthy. Although the challenge focuses on 100 days, employees have access to the GCC website and tools to continue entering steps, read up on nutrition tips, track weight loss, and earn virtual trophies well after the 100-day challenge is over. Visit to learn more!

    I have been working at Carpenter Technology full-time


    Carpenter is like a ninja company - it's everywhere and a part of every new and innovative technology but you would never know - it's like having a piece of Silicon Valley here in Philly. There are some awesomely smart people working here and the opportunity to learn is enormous. The office environment is incredibly laid back and is filled with friendly and approachable colleagues.


    The company is going through a growth cycle which isn't for everyone and this naturally comes with some growing pains. If you aren't someone who thrives in a changing environment it would probably be a poor fit.

    Advice to Management

    The Philly market is an exciting place to be and I'm excited to see what the future holds!

    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Carpenter Technology (Clearwater, FL).


    The interview process was easy enough. I had a one on one with the lead and toured the facility. You will be working with the smartest people in the plant, so you will want to come off as educated as possible in all aspects. The biggest contributor is probably past experience and education level. You will be compensated more with a higher degree from college.
