I have been working at Daktronics full-time (More than a year)
Great team environment. Strong focus on employee development. Work environment is very flex. Interesting work. Not like other companies. Industry leader with a feel of a small company.
If you do not believe in making your self better then this is not the place for you! The company truly cares about each employee. If you like "drama" in your work place look somewhere else because Dak does not have it!

Keep doing the great job you are doing. Cutting edge employee development and product development that is changing and interesting. Your belief in the work force is refreshing.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Daktronics (Brookings, SD) in October 2018.
Met with recruiter at job fair and applied online. Got back to me a few weeks after the fair and the process started. Took about 2/3 weeks from the first phone call.
