Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) – Midland, MI – March 13, 2017
Loved working there and never had problem with anyone. Picked up non-stop overtime hours if asked. Was never late and never missed a day. Was very disappointed in my boss for the actions he took for my ankle sprain. That is literally the only complaint I had with the whole company.
Very good people and had a blast working with my co-workers.
Boss temporally unemployed me for a sprained ankle that happened outside of work.
Finishing Technician (Current Employee) – Newark, DE – March 8, 2017
Typical day consist of starting up the machines and reviewing orders that need to be processed. So far I have learned to run 2 different machines and how to inspect finished products. Management has an easy open door policy, so speaking with them is not stressful. Can't really describe the workplace culture, everyone has a specific job. And it is set up as an assembly line so someone has to finish their work before the next person gets their work. The hardest part of the job is the down time. Again if someone isn't completed their orders the next person has no work to do. Then you are looking for work or asking others if they needs assistance so you are not standing around doing nothing.
A place with flexible hours, good benefits, open culture and nice people! As an employee, you have the chance to work with people with R&D experience, manufacturing background, marketing expertise, and so on. Of course, this place is full of smart people and can be very competitive.
Great people, an excellent opportunity to learn new skills

Process Engineering Specialist (Former Employee) – Freeport, TX – February 19, 2017
Had the opportunities to work in multiple functions of the petrochemical industry from manufacturing to technical services and Process Engineering. Company has a strong focus on safety and technical training.
Very structured day regiment that include many learning sessions and the co-workers are friendly, but some management is ok depending what department they are over. It was not the most difficult job but as new management took over it became very stressful.
You get a hour for lunch and two fifthteen minutes breaks.
