    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -The salary and benefits are pretty good.
    -Smart and friendly coworkers

    Cons

    -Work/Life balance is atrocious. 60 hour weeks (with little to no overtime pay) and mandatory Saturdays are quite common.
    -The byzantine policies and procedures make doing even the most mundane engineering work take 10 times longer than it should.
    -The company has filed for bankruptcy and its financial future appears dubious.

    Senior Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cranberry, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry, PA).

    Interview

    Painful. It was a panel interview with 3 WEC representatives. Really dumb questions, trying to determine my pesonallity background. Many of the examples of my prior qualifications were not really understood by the panel; an example of this was my Six Sigma Black Belt qualifications. The interview was approx 1.5 hrs long. I had a good job at the time, so I initally thought that I had wasted my time at WEC. I have also had several Quality Management positions and personally interviewed many applicants; I would have never asked some of the dumb qusetions they did.
