AkzoNobel is a decent company to work for but the future is unknown. They are implementing too many initiatives at one time and they do not take into account how the changes affect the work load of the site. The items that they are changing makes the plant life harder.
Sr. Production Assistant (Former Employee) – Pasadena, TX – May 22, 2017
A typical day at work started at 8:00 am I would do a walk through of all the plants and confirm all production into SAP, and collect any campaigns that were complete. Once campaigns were complete I would verify all production and close the orders. Inventory investigation, inventory corrections, planning, consumed most of my day.

Manager (Current Employee) – Strongsville, OH – March 28, 2017
Management can't seem to get on track. They are constantly in a state of change. Outsourcing everything employee they can to the point that you have to open tickets for HR issues then wait weeks or months in some cases to get a response. Most training is composed of PPT slide packs and then very little follow up.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Reading, PA – March 23, 2017
Good place to gain experience and move on. Management feeds you false hope. And the supervisor micromanages you from across the room after they asked you to take care of it. Learned a great deal about moving freight as in scheduling delivers to customers as well as scheduling inbound supplies from other plants.

Enjoyed co workers and common sense management when we had it.learned a lot by hands on and smart people who trained me along the we all worked hard and together.early years we had great Christmas bonus and trips provided by the cq.
The hardest part of the job is having to deal with bad turnaround times with management. Once in a while you will have a supervisor that knows what they are doing. Other times you have to deal with their incompetence. There is also little place for growth. Though if you are content with the job you applied for without room for growth, this is the place for you.
