    I have been working at WET full-time

    Pros

    I've worked at WET for some time now, and yes, WET has it's share of issues, but what company doesn't? I've learned to love this company based on the people that I am surrounded by. Plus, I get the satisfaction of going home every day knowing that I've accomplished something and my contribution has made a difference.
    I personally find it annoying, in general, when I see some people, and how they have gotten so fixated on being catered to, and the whole "I am special", and "I deserve this and that..." mentality is going way over the top. What ever happened to, "I am grateful for even having a job"? WET has been around for years, and it will continue to be around for a while. And I have found that if you do your job, and do it well, you will be happily employed here. Not to mention the satisfaction you get of being a part of something meaningful, the great coffee, soda machines and the gym (accessible any time).
    From the time that I started until now, there have been a great deal of improvements, and I feel that improvements are continuing to happen as time goes along. With this said, I'd like to stick around to see the transition continue.

    Cons

    If we had a steady flow of work and income to avoid any difficulty in finances for WET and it's employees, which, if I may add, are not very frequent but it still happens every so often.

    Advice to Management

    There are certain people in management that don't care enough about the company, but rather only care about covering themselves and looking good to the CEO. These are the people, that if they better influenced their surroundings and had less off a "CYA" mentality, they could help the company get through rough times. But they rely on their tenure and/or their relationship with the CEO to maintain their status. This, also has gotten better over time, but is still present, and I look forward to the day when it has been rectified.

    Senior Mechanical Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sun Valley, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at WET (Sun Valley, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Two in-person interviews, the first was a basic tour of the campus, and simple questions on your background, why you want to work there etc. The second interview was meeting with some more technical level engineers and involved technical questions, past projects you worked on etc.

    The overall campus was very impressive but the office layout was a bit to 'inovative' for me. There were standing desks and no cubes which was cool, but the bathrooms were single occupant unisex which would have been extremely awkward.

    During a break in the interview I went to use the bathroom, I opened the unlocked door and there was an asian guy sitting on the pot staring right at me, he lunged for the door as if it lock it even though I was already standing there it with it opened.

    That pretty much turned me off from this company. That and in the interview I asked if they went through a period of time when they didn't send out paychecks because they were almost out of money, they said yes that happened.

    I wouldn't want to work for a company like that. They don't seem to care about their employees.

    They seem to want engineers that absolutely love their work and want to put in long hours and have no work-life balance with no job security or advancement opportunities.
