I have been working at Mueller Industries full-time (More than 8 years)
A large company that grows through acquisitions and large investments to their facilities. They aggressively strive to be the market leader in every business segment they compete in.
The hours are very long, and each division is extremely lean. Each persons responsibilities are so vast that there is little time to support your team since your covered in your own projects.
Advice to Management
Hire on a few extra heads to support the aggressive growth and goals dictated from executive management.
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mueller Industries (Memphis, TN) in April 2013.
Recruited at campus fair. Was flown out to their office in Tennessee. Started off with a mixer with upper management. Interviews started the next day in the morning. Went through 5 30-minute interviews with managers from different departments. Was mostly asked situational and behavioral questions. One asked about my future plans in my personal life (I think he wanted to know if I'd continue working if I got married). It was definitely one of those old boy organizations. There were hardly any women expect in sales. Most of the people were okay and friendly but one of the managers seemed to have a prejudice against women.
