    I have been working at Saint-Gobain full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pension, 401k, and the benefit perks. Pay for school, employee referral program. We have a great management team here on site. 2 Bonuses year to total 10% of my annual pay.

    Cons

    HR department is thousands mile away. The pay is a little low but 2 bonuses a year makes up for that. But a bonus should be a bonus and not counted on to level out my hourly wage.

    Advice to Management

    Great job guys!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain (Seattle, WA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I found this job posted on-line. It was posted for months and I didn't apply because I wasnt' familiar with the company and then I saw it on a government job board and took a closer look at the company and discovered how large and established they are. I interviewed at the plant I work at now and with and with two groups of people plus a video conference interview with individuals from Europe.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary, I'd interviewed at Amazon and REI before this and it was a great change of pace that they just talked to me honestly about my experience instead of asking trick questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I am a bad negotiator, I just accepted.
