I worked at Miller Electric MFG full-time (More than a year)
The people are very nice, always willing to lend a hand. Encourage you to ask questions.
Laid-back atmosphere, no micro-managing.
Encourage you to be independent and take on larger roles as early as possible.
I rarely met anyone who worked there less than 10 year and often times they worked there 20+ years! Needless to say, there are a lot of knowledgeable and talented people to learn from!
They don't have very many openings at the moment.
There's a pretty big generational gap. A majority of the people I worked with were 50+ years of age which is fine, but then it makes it hard to form relationships with co-workers outside of work.
It's not very ethnically diverse
Advice to Management
Hire more engineers. If you want new ideas you have to invest in the people who can come up with new ideas and bring them to life.
Continue to offer opportunities for younger talent to get involved with the company and work on larger projects.
Employ younger talent.
Hire more ethnically diverse workers as well
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Miller Electric MFG (Madison, WI) in October 2014.
There were two phone interviews. The first one was a basic HR interview with general questions about my work experience, background and academic performance. The next round was more in depth about the kind of work that I would have to do at the company and how will my expense help me in doing so. They also asked about software experience specifically in mechanical design.
