Advice to Management
As we grow I hope that how great the employees are treated continues.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at DRB Systems (Akron, OH) in March 2017.
First interview 1 on 1 with HR or operations supervisor. Second interview 1 on 1 with 5-6 different supervisors, managers and other department heads, with a technical challenge test at the end that test your ability to follow directions and troubleshoot hardware in a private room.
