    I worked at Saint-Gobain Abrasives (Less than a year)


    This isn't a great company to work for. Nice benefits for being a college student (including tuition reimbursement) and the things I learned while working at this company have been very useful in my career now. I am so greatful for my time spent in Stephenville


    Very high pressure for error free data entry. Any "error" made on an order resulted in almost a demerit and was a very stressful process.
