If you work for KM or your going to work for KM. The below comment is based on my observation while working in the EHS department in two regions for over a total of six years. This company has been sued by over eight employees that I know and have won for variuos reasons due to wrongful termination. KM Legal is none to settle instead of going to court.
One of the worse companies to work for depending on what you job is... My observations are based souly in working in the EHS shop. While at this company I lost count of the number of managers that didn't have college degrees or even direct work expereince. One manager has recently obtained a online degree when he claearly lied on his application informing everyone that he went to medical school. No records of his going to this school where found.
Turn over is very hi, at one facility in New Orleans a whole EHS team was fired.
The comments above are spot on. They start you off in EHS as a project manager with salary range starting at $45,000 - 60,000. Bonus avg between 1 -2 % and salary raises are less than 3 %.
Recently they have been hiring employees without any background check except for criminal... No education or professional ref check. Many of the people involved in EHS are not qualified to do the job, however they depend allot on consultants to do task. Take away the consultants and they are lost. Now if this happens the firing begins. While at KM I saw several non degreed and non related/with no expereince get hired or moved into a EHS role. Its very frustrating to work in this environment.
The culture is Operations, Operations, Operations. So WARNING IF YOU ARE A EHS PERSON OR QA/QR STAY AWAY. Espically from what they call Gulf and River Regions.
While at KM I have been in meeting where the EHS Manager used the "N" word to discribe another manager that worked as a Safety Manager but was not under his control. The stress keeps getting worse and the pay stays the same.
