I have been working at Tenaris full-time (Less than a year)
The people are great. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Global teams, but still very connected and responsive. HR very much doing the right things in terms of processes and creating a more employee-centric experience. Significant investment in training, truly a differentiator. Lots of change, but good change!
Not necessarily a con, but because of the global scope, it is important to have some scheduling flexibility depending on location for meetings, etc. Overall, teams seem more results driven and hours are flexible as long as objectives are being met.
Advice to Management
In the US specifically, real work/life balance is an expectation for prospective employees, so it is an area to work on and drive changes. The tools are there, just encourage their use. We can continue to look at what our customers/competitors are doing in this area.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Tenaris (Bay City, TX) in August 2015.
The interview of the operations position consisted of six person panel asking questions regarding experience, troubleshooting, expectations from the the employee as well as expectations from the company. Time was spent describing how the role was going to be merged together with a maintenance position.
