    I have been working at Oerlikon full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, open-minded and fact-based culture, opportunities to work in locations around the world.

    Cons

    To move up you'd better speak German and most of the opportunities are in Switzerland or Germany.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Oerlikon (Hempstead, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Unorganized. HR asked questions that she wanted to make herself look good.
    HR department is a mess. Unprofessional and in utter confusion. Mentioned that turnover is high! Do not interview here it is a waste of time.
