    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Toshiba full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a design engineer I was expected to work 40 hour weeks and rarely any more, although it did happen on occasion. While there are other jobs in Houston, especially in the oil industry that will pay a good bit more, this was the right pace and the right atmosphere for me. The people I worked with were great, whether they were engineers, manufacturing supervisors, or CNC operators. I started off with three weeks PTO which increased to four after two years; not as much as one would want but better than the norm for a new graduate.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay spectacularly but certainly comfortably and demands the appropriate amount of work for the pay. Benefits don't go above and beyond but are at least on par with industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to more to your engineers and stop bending to the whims of the sales group and customers they go over the top to appease. It makes it difficult to make the engineering and manufacturing processes more efficient.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Toshiba (Houston, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied this position online. First the HR called to give a screening interview, one week later he called again and assigned one on-site interview. The interviewer are very nice and easygoing people, and interview process is quite pleasant, mainly related to your personalities and previous experience. A few days later the HR called again and I got this offer. I really like the people and facilities there in Toshiba.
