    I have been working at Corning full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits including 401K, pension, goal sharing, vacation, and excellent medical. Opportunities for advancement for those that strive for excellence. One of the best paying jobs in the area, most people that are hired on make a career out of it.

    Cons

    12 hrs shifts and periods of high overtime where it makes it difficult to plan anything. Can be difficult for families or single parents to find a work life balance at first.

    Advice to Management

    Go out of your way to show appreciation to employees. Sometimes just a "Thanks" will do, but reward them if you can for hard work and dedication.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Corning.

    Interview

    Corning Inc. is very misleading in its interview process. I had 4 interviews which seemed like they went very well but only after numerous back and forth emails did I find that all the positions were filled but "there's a good chance something will open up". They could have at least had the courtesy to send an official rejection instead of stringing me along!
