Validation Tester for Solar Panel Mounting System (Former Employee) – Bridgewater, NJ – November 8, 2017
I was a summer intern at First Solar as a validation tester, and it was one of the most unique experiences of my life. But being introduced to the office space and meeting everyone, I can immediately feel the calm and very laid back office environment which I loved. I worked outside the office in a testing facility, working with my manager and had a great time doing that.
Operator (Former Employee) – Perrysburg, OH – November 8, 2017
We had to report to our workstation on a assembly line, we loaded solar panels on the line for production, we checked the solar panels for defects, checked the scribe lines for specification, made sure the oven was up to temp and made sure the robots was functioning correct. I learned CAD Chloride how to do a trigger test to make sure the plates wasn't being over sprayed. It was was a fast pace workplace very diverse, the hardest thing was trying to get the robot to work properly when it malfunctioned. The best part was the learning process of it all.
How safe and clean the place was and The cafeteria had a restaurant
Hired as a Electrical Designer to cover for full time employee who was out on disability time for approx. 3 months. It was a good experience since I had no knowledge of Solar power, so I did learn sometime. However they provided little to no training or supervision it was all on myself but they understood my situation.
Remediation Crew-Mechanical (Former Employee) – California – October 22, 2017
The job was fine, but we were all made to feel and act like dogs. From my understanding, the CM is still dealing with lawsuits brought on by former workers. He was a racist, egotistical man. And his management team (which were a bunch of "good ole boys", went right along with it.
It's a good environment for personal and professional growth. Manager's were great people to work for.
