I have been working at W.L. Gore full-time (More than 5 years)
Great benefits, flexible schedule, consistent work, fair salary and great co workers.
Gore does not understand how to handle high achievers, there tends to be gridlock in advanced positions which can lead to those high achievers becoming discouraged by the motonous nature of the job.
Advice to Management
There are a lot of great ideas lying right below the surface, if there was more cultivation of ideas by members of leadership versus maintaining the status quo it may lead to higher morale and a more profitable business.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at W.L. Gore.
Typical situational interview process. "Tell me about a time when.....". Interviewed with 5 different individuals ranging from HR, business leader, process engineer, product development engineer and manufacturing engineer
