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