Really feel part of the company and that you help make a difference. Not given busy work like getting coffee...given real work and definitely respected. Extremely accommodating and everyone wanted to help me learn.
I did not experience any.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panavision (Woodland, CA) in July 2011.
Very pleasant. Not too many exams but I was asked questions about my previous work. The upper management was very friendly and put you at ease.
Very simple. No problems. They even paid partial relocation costs.
