Contract employees get treated like yesterday's trash
Order entry assistant (Former Employee), Hickory, NCAugust 17, 2015
Pros: Coworkers
Cons: Management, everyone is scared they will be let go even full time employees with 10plus years
if you are a 20 year old pretty female who works out everyday they will love you, otherwise you will be treated like a second class citizen and thrown out like yesterday's trash. This only applies to the customer service department. The other departments were much more friendly and welcoming but customer service is very outdated and do not involve the "team" in any decision making. I was called at 7pm and informed I could not come back to work the next day and the supervisor told my team that I had quit and left them hanging. This was after 2 years of working without asking for one day off since I did not get paid vacation time at all. I loved my coworkers but management needs to get with the times, this is 2015 after all.

Productive, fast paced environment
Millwright/Mechanic (Former Employee), Wilmington, NCJuly 13, 2015
Very strict policies pertaining to safety to be met with constant supervision by safety and in house foremans on each floor that work duties were being performed. Almost overcrowded by other workers in tight spaces on each floor and sharing of equipment as in scizzor and boom lifts between contractors and other employees.

Fiber Optics Technician (Former Employee), Wilmington, NCMay 6, 2015
Pros: Pay
Cons: everything else.
not a stable job, they layoff a lot, no time for family. Very numbers oriented, even over safety. Pay is good, but you cannot count on it being there for long.

Adaptable work life
Operator (Former Employee), Greenville, OHApril 26, 2015
Pros: Open 24 hour cafeteria at reasonable prices. Planned weekends. Overtime opportunities.
Cons: Very noisy.
Swing shift was a good challenge to overcome in the 23 years experience at Corning. Adapting with the great many others who shared the experiences made my life at Corning a home. Many shared hobbies, sports and relationships was a fascinating dream come true. If I had a chance to experience life at Corning again, I would not change a day.

OK place to work
EQUIPMENT & PROCESS ENGINEER (Current Employee), Corning, NYApril 25, 2015
Pros: flex time
Cons: travel can be intense, trending in the direction of doing more with less with no sign of turning around.
The company has interesting and challenging projects to work on. Process is king in this company so if youre a process engineer its a great environment.

They are a pretty old school company and tend to be "stuck in their ways" regarding how they view their people. You tend to feel like you are part of a machine with this company.

Nice and subtle job
HOUSEKEEPING ATTENDANT (Former Employee), Midland, NCMarch 27, 2015
Pros: Free lunches, sometimes breakfast. A lot of company celebrations
Cons: Some of the people weren't great to work with, and everyone being so inparticular
A typical day at work consisted of meeting up in our office. We would assign tasks and then proceed to get started with our day. I would mop, vacuum, dust, and strip and wax floors. Dust free was the biggest thing we had to deal with but we got it done every week.
