Wi-Tronix – Why Work For Us?


Wi-Tronix provides products and services to wirelessly monitor high-value mobile assets such as locomotives, industrial equipment, and marine vessels. Mobile assets of this class are typically the workhorses of an enterprise. In the past, mobile meant disconnected. Being disconnected causes great inefficiencies in an enterprise that counts on mobile assets for its core business operations. Advanced commercially available wireless technologies now enable all types of assets to be connected throughout most of the world. Wi-Tronix’s mission is to integrate these technologies to enable businesses to improve the operational efficiency, service reliability and safety of high-value mobile assets. 

Our mission is to integrate the latest technologies that will enable businesses to improve the operational efficiency, service reliability, and safety of their high-value mobile assets.

At Wi-Tronix, we look for teammates that exhibit our Core Values of Teamwork, Accountability, Excellence, Innovation, Customer Focus, and Making Things Happen.

undefinedWhat makes us unique? Why should you work at Wi-Tronix?

The answer is both simple and complex at the same time. The work we do at Wi-Tronix is much greater than the creation or sales of our product. It is even more than helping our customer or our customer's customer.

What drives us is knowing that our product is bettering the world around us. It makes railroad and marine operations safer for the entire community. It helps companies decrease their fuel consumption for a greener environment. It saves companies thousands to millions of dollars that can be re-invested in the economy and job creation.

That is what brings us to the office every morning.

The Wi-PU and Violet might be small boxes, but they're small boxes with a big job. And we're the people behind it.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Wi-Tronix (Bolingbrook, IL).

    Interview

    I was contacted for a phone interview and got a time set up within a few days. I was a bit frustrated because I was told that I would be called directly, and the interviewers were 20 late for the call. Since I was currently employed at the time and the call was during the business hours, I had to step away from my desk for 50 minutes instead of the scheduled 30 (20 min delay + 30 min interview time). I found that to be a bit off-putting as a candidate that the interviewers we not respectful of my interview time. The onsite interview was fine. I was asked standard questions by a panel of people -- peers, supervisor and HR.
