Rotating sift work is the hardest thing to adjust to because of the constant change from Day shift to night shift and visa versa. Because of the testing requirement to begin working here you are almost guaranteed that most of the people that are working there actually want to be there. Most of the employees strive to make the plant process better than what it is.

The only negative thing I have to say about Corning is that even though I am under a 365 day contract they could get rid of me at any time. Not because I have done anything wrong but because they are no longer in need of me anymore. This would also come with no notice, as I have known others that this has happened to. One previous worker was headed home for the day and received a phone call on his way home saying- "Please do not come in to work tomorrow, your services are no longer needed". This new came after a promise from the company that he would be made permanent after his 2nd term contract was completed. Other than that the company is great and for the few lucky ones that are permanent full time they have been here for 20+ years and have not one bad thing to say.
Overall, the company as a whole is very good to work for.

Corning Inc. provides good compensation for the amount of work that is put in. However, it does depend on which department that you are working for as to how fast or if you will be able to advance if you are trying to further your career.

Corning is continuously coming up with new products while working to improve existing products. We also have many products on the shelf in which time is spent looking for initial or new applications. We work in teams to push technology forward and we work across teams to share learnings. Some days are long and stressful but we share in our triumphs and it makes these days worth while.
Flexible time allows for us to put time into our projects, allows us to enjoy our families as well
Not just a Corning thing but in American Industry there is no compensation for loyalty, Not compensated for staying in one place and really mastering a skill, More money is in hopping from one position to another, We are a pick up and go society today

Engineering Contractor (Former Employee) – Harrodsburg, KY – July 5, 2017
Having worked with Corning quite a lot I may not have a lot of things to compare to, but Corning has never really given me a reason to stray away. The culture meshed well with my personality, and the management that I was in contact with had a style that was very agreeable to me (close enough to keep tabs on my progress and issue corrections as needed but with enough autonomy to learn and accomplish tasks on my own).
clean and well mantained facilitys with great people

I was an intern at Sullivan Park for a few months while in school at Corning Community College. It was a wonderful team atmosphere! Everyone was very helpful and friendly and I learned so much while I worked there.
