    I have been working at JBT full-time (More than a year)


    JBT is an organization comprised of some very talented individuals. It is almost a "best-kept secret". While the company may not be the size of other large industrial manufacturing companies, it definitely looks to hire people of equal or higher talent as found in those companies. The company's global presence and diversified portfolio help to support its strong economic performance. The CEO and Executive Leadership Team have done a great job of laying out a vision and a path forward.


    There is definitely no shortage of work. This is not an organization for someone who wants to "coast" at any level. There is no doubt an emphasis on getting results which creates stress but never at the expense of safety or quality.

    Advice to Management

    Work to help reduce benefit cost a little year over year.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chalfont, PA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at JBT (Chalfont, PA) in August 2018.


    This interview was for the automated systems division. The interview consisted of a phone screen and on-site interview. At the onsite interview, you may have lunch or dinner with teammates to get to know them better. The work seemed very interesting (robotic vehicles/warehouse automation). You will get a tour of the facility so you can see the machines they make. The team was very transparent about the travel requirements - which is good because some people may love traveling for work and others may not like it.
