    I have been working at Corning full-time

    Pros

    -Pay Rate
    -Hours*
    -Entry Level Available
    -Work with people that want to be there and are invested in work

    Cons

    -The hours can be an obstacle for someone with a family or who wants a large amount of free time. That's why I've put it in Pros and Cons.
    -If you can't pass the Entry Level test to get hired on, you'd have to try again. It can be difficult for some people due to this.

    Construction Inspector Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Corning (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was done over the phone, lengthy on boarding including background check, hair follicle drug screening and extensive paperwork. All done from the phone or e-mail. All in all it was a fairly easy process.
