I have been working at Corning full-time
-Entry Level Available
-Work with people that want to be there and are invested in work
-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.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Corning (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.
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.
In 1879, Thomas Edison staged his first successful test of an incandescent light bulb, leading to one of the most ubiquitous and life-changing household items of the late 19th century. See how Corning’s partnership with Edison led to the development and mass production of the light bulb and laid the foundation for decades of innovation that followed: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQRmX
The Economist recently visited Corning’s global R&D center for an inside look at the development and innovation of Gorilla Glass and other advanced glass technologies. Read what they had to say about the history of Gorilla Glass and what we can expect for the next 10 years of advanced glass innovation: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQR42
