    I have been working at Saint-Gobain full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits start day 1. Overtime available. Clean factory. Many good changes coming. Education reimbursement. Many shifts available. Job rotation. Great future potential

    Cons

    Forgetting about off shifts. Just because you have been employed for a long time doesn't mean you get special treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Promote those that you are assisting in education expense.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Saint-Gobain.

    Interview

    Interview took around 30 minutes. Most of the questions seemed to be trying to fit me to the company culture. I got an email a few weeks later that the internship program was cancelled.
