I have been working at Corning Cable Systems full-time
Great pay, great benifits, safe and caring company
Long 12 hours shift plus every other weekend
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Corning Cable Systems (Hickory, NC).
I applied first to a non-Corning recruiter, who submitted me to the company. I had a phone screen with the hiring manager, then a second phone interview with someone else from the department. Corning flew me to North Carolina for one-on-one interviews with team members. Finally, I had a follow up phone interview with two senior VPs. It was quite exhaustive.
I could not have been more impressed with my Corning interview experience. The process moved along at a reasonable pace - it didn't drag on but it wasn't rushed, either. The HR person who was my point of contact was professional, courteous and very responsive. Everybody I met with at Corning was very impressive - smart and capable but also good people. It's clear they have built an environment where people do exceptional work but they also support one another.
I received an offer but, unfortunately, had to turn it down due to a family illness. But Corning would be a great place to work and, based on my interview experience, I would recommend this company to anybody.
