Good pay and benefits (I am salaried), especially for the central valley of California. There are a lot of positions to explore at the campus as well as Schneider Corporate opportunities across North America if you get bored.
Shrinking business, not competitive like it used to be in the glory days of Pelco. Schneider does not seem to keen on investing in the Pelco business which is frustrating if your're a Pelco employee.
Advice to Management
Need to hire better talent from outside Schneider Electric
I applied online. I interviewed at Pelco (Clovis, CA).
Interviewed with manager about purchasing/procurement in Pelco. Explained structure and history of company and how acquisition of Schneider has changed things. Told me what needs to be learned and whether or not I had experience with contracts/negotiations. I had customer service and sales experience which I think helped plus I had a contact who was already a manager in the company used as a reference. Networking pays off people.
I was blessed by God. They called me with the offer and skipped the 2nd interview.
