    I worked at ESCO full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Large company with good benefits and many engineers. The range of experience and history of the company are tied in with the city of Portland

    Cons

    Company was unsure of its direction in the future while I worked there. It was difficult to see a future there while the company was trying to figure out their own.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency, clarity, and respect are appreciated. Many times it seemed like management was hiding information from the engineers in an effort to keep the status quo

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ESCO.

    Interview

    Initial communication was via phone call from the recruiter, followed by a short phone interview with the team manager. About a week later, a series of 4 in person interviews over the course of 4 hours was conducted, ending with being told that I would be contacted early the next week either way. The next week I received an email stating that one of the interviewers had gone out of town for the week and I would hear back a week from then. I received a call the following week asking me to come in for yet another hour long interview, which I did. Almost a week after that I was told that they had elected to go with another candidate. This was without a doubt the most ridiculously drawn out interview process I have ever taken part in, especially considering the role I had applied for. The people were nice enough, but overall, this company essentially wasted a month of my time for little to no reason.
