This is a great job if you love fixing things. The maintenance supervisor was awesome and had a great plan in place to get you acclimated with the job task. The shift supervisors could have done more to help out with the new hire training.

Finance dept was outsourced
Accounts Receivable Clerk (Former Employee) –  High Point, NCOctober 30, 2018
Enjoyed working here, however it was only to clean up receivables in order for it to be outsourced. I achieved their goal. Most employees had left so in the end I was the only A/R associate working at this location.

A terrible experience overall..

poor management, no diversity, old technology, co-workers

Phased out
Service Delivery Manager (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJOctober 22, 2018
Chair review meetings with the business units along with the IT service provider to ensure that the contracted service levels were being met. Also I would chair meetings with the local IT support staff to ensure that the IT service provider was performing to the contracted service levels with regards to on-site service and helpdesk support. Provide reporting to high level management on the performance in the region.
The final year was about handing over activities to other managers within the company and to our IT service provider.
Pros
work life balance
Cons
made redundant

Great place to learn
Account Manager - Colloidal Silica (Former Employee) –  Marietta, GAOctober 9, 2018
My time at AkzoNobel was a great learning experience. At first, I had wonderful chances to grow and expand, but things got slow as a change of the seemed to focus on office politics instead of merit. Maybe I just had a bad experience....

Filler (Current Employee) –  Pontiac, MI 48341July 26, 2018
This company is horrible, OHSA needs to be called due to the unsafe chemicals employees breathing in. and the unsafe practices they use. They don't hire temps in at all. management is very messy and unprofessional on all 3 shifts. 1st shift and 3rd shift is the worst shift to work due to management. Supervisor are trying to date the employees, Management tell employees business to other employees. Don't work for this company run far as you can away from this company. Trust me i'm not lying.
Pros
pay is good once you are hired in.
Cons
Don't work for this company run far as you can away from this company.
