    I worked at Saint-Gobain full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    pay is fair for the work that you do, people are decent to work with as well, management treats the lower levels with respect

    Cons

    Monotonous labor as a factory worker can become boring, must seek out internal drive to continue working here and be happy

    Advice to Management

    continue to provide employee incentives and rewards for various reasons, attendance, performance, etc

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain.

    Interview

    One may come in for a 2nd or 3rd interview, since there are many "layers" within Saint-Gobain's management. That's also dependent on the role that one interviews for. I think the interview was a reflection of the company's general attitude (work hard, play hard)
