      For the area, the pay was phenomenally good, but this may have been a carryover from the Reliance/Baldor days. The local team, my supervisor, the plant manager, and many of our engineers were some of the best that I've ever had the pleasure of working with.


      After ABB purchased Baldor (our facility manufactured custom 300hp+ Reliance motors) they spent quite a bit of money on two local facilities, only to shut them down 3 years later. Rather than continue to manufacture a good reliable motor that our customers loved that continues to make a profit, they decided that due to the change in political climate, that they would sell a cheaper alternative built overseas for a higher profit return. Be wary if ABB buys the company you work for, they're in the business of buying out competition, shutting it down, and then selling junk back in its place.

        People are committed to their work and open to help, management understand employees special circumstances within reason. Baldor does not take short cuts when it comes to safety.


        Recent layoffs and downsizing are disturbing the morale of employees


        We appreciate your feedback about the morale and bureaucracy.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)


      Customer Service Representative CSR

      I had an interview this afternoon for a customer service position in a call center. The ad was very vague to begin with and at the end of it I felt like I really didn't know anything more about the job. When I asked about the starting pay, which was not published in the ad, they looked incredulous (they were doing on-the-spot hiring today) and then asked me "What's your range?" And only responded with "I think we could meet that." And still never gave me a straight answer. Is this a red flag?

      Software Engineer

      I did my initial interview with a “better established” startup and they said the interview process is 5 interviews. 3 technical then 1 interview with the CEO then another technical interview. Idk about you but that seems like a lot of interviews and they said they want to do it as fast as possible in a short time span. Is this a normal amount of interviews? Is this a red flag? For a full stack software position 4-5 years exp how much salary should be the norm in a hcol area?


      Business Analyst

      Is it unprofessional to attend a Zoom interview from within your car? I am currently employed and just landed an interview for tomorrow. It is a virtual interview over Zoom. Should I try to find somewhere besides my car for the interview? I don't know that I could but wanted to get yalls thoughts on this.
