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

    Pros

    Plant supervision cares about us, good benefits. Opportunities for people that want to grow and work hard, recognition given for hard work.

    Cons

    Equipment issues, but has gotten much better in the last several months. Difficult to work with some new associates, not everyone cares how the company performs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay connected with the floor.

    National Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Oatey (Atlanta, GA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiting manager walked me through the process and it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Even though I wasn't selected, I was treated with respect and kindness. Most companies don't follow through with applicants but this recruiter gave her word she would follow up and she did. The hiring manager was ok but not as impressive as her Recruiting representative.
