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

    Pros

    Great work-life balance
    Great, friendly atmosphere
    Perks like catered lunches, parties, conferences, cruises for top performers, and bonuses
    Good pay

    Mouser takes great care of its employees. I'm honestly surprised by the negative comments. I feel appreciated and I get to have a fun for the most part day to day.

    Companies do not have to do things like send out $20 to you on your birthday or throw parties and take people on cruises.

    The company sends teams on conferences to further industry knowledge and invest in their employees. Also offer tuition reimbursement. Team is great, everyone is willing to pitch in and help. Project managers are understanding and will adjust if need to for most part.

    If you are not passionate about what you're doing in your career, it is harder to enjoy work.

    No company is perfect but Mouser gets pretty close in my book.

    Cons

    Variety of work can be limiting because Marketing is divided into small teams so you will only touch one part of the Marketing umbrella

    Java Developer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Don’t let these people waste your time

    The recruiter reached out to me about a position. I didn’t apply for it, so they clearly lacked willing applicants. I said I’d speak with the group manager, because why not.

    The manager spoke with me and moved me on to the “next round” of the interview: 2.5-hour Codility test and you can’t use your own IDE. This was an absurd proposal, especially for a certain-to-be downgrade in compensation and overall career status. So, I blew it off....

    A couple of weeks later, the recruiter e-mailed me (I blocked this person’s number due to the volume of untimely calls) and said the manager wanted me to come in for an interview. I almost successfully blew it off, but at the 11th hour I caved and said okay. The recruiter “forgot” to mention that I’d still have to take the Codility test... So, I logged in later that week, spent about 15 minutes on the 2.5-hour test and got back to my basketball game. And, what do you know.... at the last minute, something “came up” and they needed to reschedule my interview for “a later date”. An interview, you’ll recall, that I didn’t even want.

    These people are amateurs all around. Don’t waste your time on them if you didn’t initiate contact with them.
