    I have been working at Plexus full-time

    Pros

    Stong desire to improve quality in every area of manufacturing.

    Cons

    Not understanding the connection that increasing associates wages would improve both employee retention and quality of candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Trickle down economics doesn’t work when nothing trickles down to the people you’ve built the business on. This is a need across the USA - in most businesses. A little more sharing would improve life for everyone.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Plexus in October 2017.

    Interview

    Met at university recruitment event, got an interview immediately. At the first interview, was a 30 minute interview going over the basics, why I wanted to work there, why software, favorite projects, etc. The next interview was an all day event at their office where I had to prepare a 20 minute presentation in front of about 15-20 people. Next was a tour (I was instructed to touch and pickup objects and ask questions...) of the facilities, workspace, labs, etc. The first technical interview was mostly centered around product requirements. I met with two people and there was a little bit of white board coding. After that, they took me out to lunch.
    When we got back, it was time for the HR benefits overview. This seemed pretty normal, explaining benefits that the company offers. The recruiter then asks me where I have offers from and then proceeds to hammer me on a salary price that I had in mind. The biggest rule about salary negotiations is you don't offer the number first. So we went around and around for about 5 minutes. It was extremely uncomfortable and I was shaken. After that, it was time for the next technical interview. By this time, I was still shaken from the confrontation with the recruiter so I feel like I did not perform well. Was given a scenario and had to describe how I would code for this problem. Since I could not think, the 2 people there were nice and helped and gave hints but I already knew I wasn't performing at my best.
    There was a conversation with the software manager to conclude everything and I was told that I would hear back soon (within a few days.) I never heard back, I reached out and asked if I would be receiving a decision, but I never heard back until I accepted an offer elsewhere.
