    I have been working at Waters full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you can manage your time wisely, this is definitely the job for you. You set your own schedule, and as long as you meet the needs of the customers, you are pretty well set. Very good benefits and a very laid back place to work.

    Cons

    There is a lot of travel, especially at the beginning of your career as an FSS. This is because of all of the training and certifications you must obtain in order to perform the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Happy employees lead to happy customers and happy bosses.

    Software Engineer II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waters (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and a three hour in-person followed by another one hour phone interview. The interview was slightly unprofessional and decayed into a chatty atmosphere. After a month I decided to call to see if they had made a decision they had and it was for another candidate. Again this added to the unprofessional feeling I had to begin with they could of sent a "Thanks but no thanks letter".

    Interview Questions

    • Standard brain teasers, three lights and pseudo code for a few problems.   Answer Question
