I have been working at Jacobsen full-time (More than 10 years)
Good Friendly manufacturing personal. Good hands on environment.
Always playing catch-up to Competitors. Mediocre manufacturing processes...but improving.
Advice to Management
Don't count people out because of education...Experience goes a long way, education can be learned at any time if they are willing.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Jacobsen (Charlotte, NC) in February 2017.
Telephone interview, given a specific date/ time to ring and join a conference call with one of the Jacobsen Managers in America. Really relaxed interview, asked general interview questions about myself, work experience and about specific modules I have been studying at university, in particular any data handling modules (e.g. data mining, databases etc.)
