I have been working at General Photonics full-time (More than 3 years)
Good company. Lots of good people. Many exciting projects and opportunities. I have been employed with them for 3 years. About 2 years ago they hired a new General Manager. He has brought a lot more structure to the company and the company is growing very quickly. Recently also hired a new CEO and there are plans to continue growing.
Management is open with employees and encourages them to obtain additional skills and involves them in their growth plans. Several recent vacancies or promotions have been filled by existing staff and then additional staff employed to replaced those employees that were promoted.
I can't comment on what happened several years ago (before I was employed), but the company seems to be heading in the right direction and is a good company to work for.
Nothing great - most things are improving from previous.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at General Photonics (Chino, CA).
Very professional and to the point. Nice presentation about the company and very knowledgeable. Seems to really enjoy working for the company and also working with the Asian culture. Overall a pretty good interview.
