    I worked at Newark Element 14 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very good training and development and great opportunity to try different jobs within the company.

    Cons

    I started there when the company only had 70 employees now they are in the upper 300's so the only con of my employment was that things became very routine and rigid during the growth of the company.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Newark Element 14 (Richfield, OH) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted within two days of submitting my resume with a request for a phone interview. Received a call the next day, one hour after the scheduled interview appointment and discussed my previous experience. Was asked to meet with the hiring manager which was scheduled two weeks later. The meeting was one hour of a company presentation followed by a "group project" consisting of two people, having 10 minutes to prepare and present. Four candidates attended and four managers interviewed, each interviewing one candidate. I was given a script to learn of a make believe product, again in 10 minutes, then taking a sales call from the manager assigned to me, pretending to be a client. I was told that after this three hour event, the manager's would sit down to discuss the best candidate. Not sure how this is determined to be effective when each manager interviews only one candidate. I received a generic decline email the next day from Farnell, not from the person I had been corresponding with, signed "HR" and it thanked me for submitting my resume. This is not a professional way of communication after having two interviews. I'm not sure if they hired any of the other three but the job was re-posted the following week.
