Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – February 28, 2017
Working alone was the the only good thing. Besides the guys cutting me slack for mistakes they didn't know were mistakes since I was the only warehouse worker, there were frustrating circumstances everyday. Made the best of it. The fellas there had their hearts in the right place nonetheless.
I enjoyed my time with SABIC. My managers were very helpful and happy to allow me to work alongside different teams while I was employed. This allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of what it takes to run an efficient supply chain.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Burkville, AL – December 28, 2016
Company has a very racist uderculture. They don't pay well and expect a lot from their employees. The better you are, the more work they want to give you and the less the pay you. If you are a minority, don't expect much here
I could have not done better for a place of employment for 40 years
Distribution Specialist (Former Employee) – Ottawa, IL – June 28, 2016
Being a nervous young man fresh from the service i remember my first day. I loved the people I worked with and also loved my job. So many good stories. I hope the placed fulfills everyone there like it did me
Very productive and safe workplace with kind coworkers
Quality Assurance Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, IN – May 24, 2016
Every day was an array of testing that I had to run from samples that came in hot off the production line. The most common test was running melt viscosities on extrusion plastometers and using FtIR and pulse NMR to quantify contents of sample. Occasionally helped supervisor with audit information and systems data input as well as performed repeat tests on customer complaint material. There was occasionally a bit of downtime if there were problems in the production team, but for the most part it was a busy day with no sitting going from test to test. Management was very friendly and good people you could get along with and carry a conversation with. Coworkers were very helpful when any sort of problem arose in the work day and were very friendly to speak with. The hardest part of the job was having to drive an hour to and an hour back from work. This added up to 10 hours per week at least. The people were the most enjoyable part of the job. I learned from this job that it doesn't matter how good or high paying a job is if you can't get along with your co workers. I was lucky to have very friendly coworkers and managers.
very friendly workplace with great coworkers and friendly managers
If a day was a bit slow or production was down, the day went by slower
Productive site with many close-knit veterans in the work force
Co-op Student (Former Employee) – Burkville, AL – May 16, 2016
Good environment for co-op students to learn about the industry. Heavy industrial environment with many hazards to be aware of (e.g. chemical, mechanical, electrical, heights, etc.); as a result the site placed a strong emphasis on continuous safety training and reminders. The site is 30 years old and aging in some places but still manages to be productive thanks to a veteran work force, and their safety record was impressive (in 30 years of operation, I only heard of a single life-changing injury). Nearly every person I worked with was friendly and willing to help with my own projects, especially if the project impacted the operation of the unit as a whole.
On-site cafeteria, safety program, friendly work force, 24/7 site operation (different work times)
Different units have differing philosophies at times, getting multiple operation units on the same page was often difficult
Human Resource Business Partner (Current Employee) – Pittsfield, MA – May 9, 2016
The company has a long-term vision, but change is very slow and the leadership is risk-adverse to a fault. There are great talent people and the desire to spend money on developing talent, capital investments and long-term R&D. They are challenged by having too many game-changing projects at once.
Great Global environment to learn from, excellent C&B
worldwide customer driven company, striving for top quality product
Production Operator (Former Employee) – Thorndale, PA – March 11, 2016
Changing over and cleaning production machines for custom plastics compounds. Striving for top quality material. Management was knowledgeable in helping with problems and co-workers where friendly and worked as a team. The hardest part of the job was overcoming raw material problems and machine breakdowns. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with great people.
Safety training, benefits and healthecare.
Dusty dirty work environment. Hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
Co-op Student (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, IN – March 9, 2016
The company did not shy away from giving young engineers relevant projects that are more than simple secretary work. It was a great environment for learning and growth with supportive management and colleagues.
Research & Development Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Exton, PA – December 11, 2015
My days were very rewarding and full energy. My coworkers were very upscale and always fun to be around. Our projects made the time at the R/D center go fast and to know that our work was going on to make things better for our customers and the world around us . My managers always were always part of the team in ever project we had.In finishing the hardest part of my day was when we had comlpeted our given assignments.
Administrator - Information Management (Former Employee) – Pittsfield, MA – July 13, 2015
A great place to work with good benefits, training opportunities, and job advancement. There is an affinity group for women and one for young professionals which makes it easy to interact with leadership.
Training and employee development
Not a supportive HR environment for non-exempt employees
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Ottawa, IL – May 27, 2015
I scan confidential paper documents and create a folder on the network for anyone in the company to view. Accuracy and precision is ever important in my detailed computer work. I have learned that some companies require a professional and polite atmosphere and will not tolerate anything less. My supervisors are kind, considerate and very willing to do whatever it takes to help me do my job more efficiently. My co-workers are pleasant and treat me like a family member and there is always someone there to open a door for you or greet you with a warm hello. The hardest part of this job is the walk from the parking lot. I truly do not have any complaints.
