Does anyone have any idea of how somone would get a job at Glock? I've been looking for employment links or contact information and have been having trouble finding any. I want to move back into the Atlanta area and figure I might as well give them a try, as it would pretty much be a dream job for me. On a related note if anyone knows of any openings in the Metro Atlanta area in the manufacturing industry, particulary quality control, let me know please.

Contact GACop on here, I know he had just went to do an interview with them not too long ago. I am not sure if he got the job or not though.

They advertise on the GA Dept of Labor website when they have openings.

I had an interview for armorer and didn't get hired. I've been an armorer for over 10 years. They had another opening advertised and I applied again, didn't hear from them.

They won't return phone calls or emails. It's like some snobby, elite club or something.

I'd love to work there, the pays not great but I'd work there until I retire.

Can you share a little about your interview? Do you recall what the pay was? Thanks.

They're supposedly doing a very large expansion. Building a handful of large buildings which back up to a friend's neighborhood. If they aren't hiring now, I presume they will some time soon. There were some news stories recently. Apparently those pesky Austrians were able to get some zoning changes, to get residential land re-zoned for commercial use.

Armorers start at $11.50/ hr. I also applied for a security guard job there. Guards start at $13.00/ hr. At the interview they gave me a benefits package, I figured it was a done deal, I never have heard of a company giving you benefits info unless they were serious about hiring you. I never heard from them again. I found out second hand that I wasn't hired. I didn't get a letter, email, or phone call.

Poor form for a firm not to contact or inform you of a lost opportunity.

Not surprising however as when the pendulum swings to the point where the employer gets thousands of applicants for single or few positions, they usually take this stand off approach with candidates. That said when it swings back, people do remember how they were treated and act accordingly.

I was pretty surprised to see how common place it is for a company to not contact you even after 2nd and 3rd interviews.

Wow, I would have figured they would pay more than that. I work for a tier 3 automotive supplier now as a quality control tech and make more than that. Maybe their QC pay is a little better? From the sound of it though it seems like it is the kind of place you have to know someone to get into.

You're an engineer? Where are you located and what is your schooling? Send me an e-mail. In January we are bringing on two new engineers in Alpharetta off exit 13 on the 400.

Two years ago when I was laid off by Harley Davidson, I put in a butt load of applications, and was interviewed by several companies. The only company that called me back after the interview was the one I went to work for. I have since gone to work for another company and they told me at the interview I was hired pending a drug test and background check. Sometimes we have everything they are looking for, but there may be a physical issue or appearance issue. I was turned down on the spot by a couple of companies for the tatoos on my arms. They said that would not be the official reason the didn't except me. But it was all about the image. Good Luck.

Not quite accurate , They had the zoning and owned the property before the neighborhood was built. since at least 1985, They just left it woods. When they decided to build the neighbors all got mad when they lost the woods behind there houses.

$11.50/hr? Geez, that's retail employee pay. I need to start hiring Glock employees.

Coming from the other side of things, I can understand not contacting employees if you do not hire them. When I was at Home Depot corporate, every job we would post would get upwards of five thousand qualified applications, and this was when the economy was good. Corporate recruiting would have algorithms that would narrow that down to a hundred or so, and those were passed on to department recruiting. We would spend about five seconds looking at each application before doing a deeper look and passing them along to a manager. After that was a phone interview, then a couple of longer interviews. Actually hiring someone took an incredible amount of time and telling everyone that they were no longer considered took a lot of time that most departments just didn't have. A conversation like that is never quick.

This is right.


For some jobs I have applied at I didn't expect a return call or email after the interview if I wasn't hired. Others however in which the job has to be filled, and anything over $13.00 per hour pay, and if they are not just "Fishing" Yes I want a "Piss off" or "Congratulations your hired". Emailed.

Now for trying to get a Job at Glock.

Apply for a position at Glock through the DOL, you would be better off spending that time whacking off to porn.

When the paper work they hand you says:
DO NOT CALL
DO NOT Show up in person
ONLY Fax or Email a resume.

Don't expect a happy ending. You see at least have a happy ending whacking off to the porn.


I have worked in manufacturing since I was out of high school. Worked QC/QA at the last 2 real jobs and one was also spent doing engineering work.
The last inverview I had involving QC/QA was a nightmare. Companies are really fishing in the manufacturing industry right now.

And Yes I Know. I have become a Cynical Asshole.

It amazes me that so many people are out of work and scoff at $11.50 an hour. I have seen dozens of resumes that looked like the company could't exist without them. Then you interview them and see things are not what they appear to be. Too many want things handed to them. Rant over.

Yes, $11.50 seems pretty good compared to being jobless...but it still barely covers daycare for those of us with kids.

Generally the more glamorous, more hobby like the job, the more people that will line up to do it for ramen noodle money.

Fishing guides, armorers, golf pros, etc will never make any money. And if they are so good at their people skills that they do make good money, than odds are they could be making 2x as much doing something else.

The energy / renewables / building efficiency / controls business is growing. It would be a good place to take a low paying job with a chance to down the road make good money.

For those that feel they are underemployed, see if your boss or his boss will pay you to go to training of some sore in your offtime. Certs and training are expensive and it never hurts to ask. I have a buddy in IT and his company paid for him to get his EMT cert. Never hurts to have a plan b.

If any of you guys that are looking for a job are in the Smyrna area, shoot me a PM with your info. I'm not looking for anyone right now, but I have gone from one employee to six in the past 10 months, so I'm sure I'll need more people soon.
