I worked at Volvo Construction Equipment full-time (More than 3 years)
Friendly and open work environment with colleagues.
Opportunities to get international experience.
Culturally very diverse.
Directors and up are very political.
Marketing and Sales divisions are weak and unable to grasp volumes.
Pay is under industry standard.
Chambersburg is where most employees live, is dull too.
Shippensburg organization is running very thin after 3 layoffs. 50+hr work weeks.
Advice to Management
Empower your engineers, keep your noses out. Engineering in this company know what they are doing and have a good business mindset, management keep your noses out and see your engineering turn the business around.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Volvo Construction Equipment (Harrisburg, PA) in October 2016.
email correspondence was quick and very accomodating, they were very accomodating with timing the interview as i had 19 college credits in the semester and had a full time job at the same time
