    I have been working at Hutchinson Technology (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -The people and the time off policies are two of the best reasons to work here. You simply can't find so many good people in one place any where else.
    -Relaxed work environment and relaxed work schedule in certain departments
    -For a chemical processing facility, it's ridiculously clean.
    -Challenging work, when busy.
    -Opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    -Waiting for FTC to approve this merger so we can start doing real work again.

    Advice to Management

    It's been a tough road, but hopefully it will all be over soon. I believe Penn made things much better after he took over. You really tried hard to turn things around. And in many ways you succeeded, but the HDD market is waning and getting a solid footing in new markets is harder than most lay people think.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hutchinson Technology (Fargo, ND) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Talked with someone at a job fair, which led to me being invited back the next day for an interview. The interview consisted of two people, one engineer/supervisor who did most of the talking and one manager who I later found out oversees the intern program.
