    I worked at Guardian Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was paid and got a little experience in heavy industrial manufacturing.

    Cons

    I was expected to come in on call when it was not in my job description, which was very loose. Everyone in management was uneducated, and "worked their way up". They prey on ambitious under-qualified personnel to keep salaries low on the promise of advancement and opportunity that never comes.

    Advice to Management

    Create an actual structure for advancement.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Guardian Industries (De Witt, IA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    First interview is over the phone. They call you in for a second interview where you meet with multiple individuals to discuss the position. The interview is laid back. Everyone at the company was extremely helpful and answered all the questions that I had for them.
