Fast paced work environment with growth opportunities due to many divisions under NCH umbrella. I learned to resolve customer disputes and cash forecasting. Workplace culture is diverse and company is growing.
Area Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – December 8, 2016
I spent 10 years working for nch corporation and it was fantastic. I could have spent the rest of my time with this company. Unfortunately i was in a division that dried up and couldnt relocate. Overall a great place to work.
Senior Server Engineer (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – September 2, 2016
Somewhat disorganized but a great environment. Many people have been the for well over a decade. The only negative things that I could say is again, a little disorganized and the building is really looking pretty dated. I contracted there and I was treated very well and just like one of the team.
Onsite cafeteria. Excellent employee treatment
The building is pretty dated. Akin to 1970s. Lol but its functional
Quality Control Lab Technician (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 19, 2015
This is a high stress, fast paced environment. The QC tech samples and tests a wide range of products and strives to keep up with the daily workload. Also assists with production scheduling, computer services and formulations projects.
Most negative management style I have ever enountered.
SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN and surround 3 state area – June 14, 2015
I enjoyed by District and Regional Manager. They were intelligent, funny and good people. The management style of the corporation is overall negative. I was told I had a bad week everyriday afternoon unless I had blown the roof of my sales. The President and Vice President are total jerks. I can't stand either one of them. They have no knowledge of chemistry and no morals. In their opinion, the only way to manage straight commission sales representative is to scream at them. When you write amazing amount of sales, they tell you good job. They were a very demotivating management team. I was successful for my family, for my goals. You pay for the maintenance of your own vehicle. This costs more than you think, tires, oil changes, general maintenance and gas.You pay for customer lunches, buy birthday presents and whatever expenses you incur to run your business. They don't care about anyone that works for them, they care only about how many Armani shirts or gold rings they own. Seriously, the President calls a friend of my who has to disconnect her husband from life support on that day and tells her to call a sales rep and talk her into staying. My friend in in her late 30's. They are cold, cold hearted. You can selectively sell products that are safer for the environment and people, which is what I did. The corporation doesn't care about the environment, they just project the image that they do. They sell any old product the laws will permit regardless of how dangerous it is to human health or the environment. I did not sell those old products ever.more... They give people cancer and contribute to environmental damage with those old products and they have no conscience about it. I was with them a long time because I had invested so much time, money into building business relationships and my territory that I couldn't afford to leave. You have to sign a non-compete contract to work for them, which means when you want to leave you have to change industries entirely. You can stay in the industry but you will have to expand your territory so you do not break the non-compete contract. You can earn a living.less
You can win award trips with much fortitude. You control your own schedule, make your own appointnments, generate your own income.
Decent place to work but you must be self motivated.
Regional Sales Representative (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – May 28, 2015
Great products. Training is hard to come by but is very interactive when its available. Must be very self motivated and hard working due to the price points of the products. Routine problems with commission.
A typical day is to attend a meaningless morning meeting and then another meaningless meeting after lunch where you are told of all of the things you're doing wrong as a team and then offered the same suggestions over and over. No real training. Management doesn't practice what they preach.Would love to see managers new account/new product count. Just basic telephone sales. Same old customers every week. If they've told you no 10 times, chances are they're not interested. There are some really talented people working here but their talents are being wasted because mid levels seem to be afraid to tell VP. I saw at least one sales rep who was a great teacher and developed solid relationships with customers but company is wasting his abilities. Great companies don't do that.
Good work/life balance
Very Low pay. Can't support a family. Division has no interest in hearing individual ideas.
Opportunity and great management provided me with the honor of the first cross-trained employee at a large corporation.
Order Processing Specialist (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – May 15, 2015
As the only employee that trained for this unique position with the company and within the largest department, I was able to build my job skills and was afforded consistent pay raises. Job efficiency was so that we rarely worked overtime and my job ratings for pay raise were consistently high. I credit this to company innovation and stream-lining, as well as great management.
