Cannot develop further when laid off
Contract positions easy to eliminate
Suggestions for improvement
- If you decide to work for Prime Controls in a Controls Engineer/Automation Specialist position, be very specific during the interview regarding hourly rate (for contract) and salary (for full-time) expectations. The "Controls Engineer" job posting says "Full Time", which is supposed to mean salary position. That's what I believed going into the interview. They didn't mention anything about contract role until long after the interview. If you decide to accept a contract role, don't be misled by how well they appear to be treating you. All that "we treat everyone equally, whether salary or contract" is utter nonsense. When work dries up, you - being on contract - will be the first to go. Lastly, if they mentioned that they had never laid off anyone, they are lying.
