Pioneer, Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – July 31, 2018
Technically, I was contracted to work for DuPont from a third party. I enjoyed the environment at the experimental lab in Wilmington. The people I worked with were great. I appreciated their culture of safety.
Fast-paced environment, constant changes in management and practices.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Newark, DE – July 31, 2018
Many hours of non-paid overtime. A typical day was 12 hours. Worked with many different outside organizations, including the U.S. Government, large customers, and worked with very knowledgeable customer service reps who were dedicated. Hardest part of the job was managing the huge amount of work with the least amount of overtime. Prioritization and planning were crucial in order to succeed. Most enjoyable part was developing relationships with customers and co-workers.
Too much unpaid overtime, I worked approximately 55 to 60 hours per week for the last 15 years at DuPont.

It is a 200+ year old company that has taken care of many people for decades. It just wasn't the fit and culture that I am looking for at this stage in my life. that being said. They do take care of their people.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – July 28, 2018
I worked for DuPont right out of college 36 years ago. I moved 3 times in 5 years. I was in sales and traveled a lot. It was a good learning experience, but offered very little career growth opportunities. I was also unhappy living away from Atlanta in Chicago.
Chemical Operator (Former Employee) – Belle, WV – July 26, 2018
When I worked for DuPont, it was a great place! Safety was number one! Everyone looked out for each other, including management. We had top notch professional managers. A lot of responsibilities but everyone worked together. Advancement was very quick. There were equal opportunities for everyone. We were a very safety oriented company.

Administrative Clerk (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 25, 2018
A typical workday in my position is very demanding. We have strict goals and deadlines. I have learned many good and valuable things working at Dupont. The management that I've had to work directly with are awesome. The hardest part of my job is making sure the customer is satisfied. The most enjoyable is knowing i work with a great group of people.

Tough environment when told they want to change and like fresh eyes. However, embedded culture such as this can be tough to overcome and navigate which can lead to above average frustration on the job.
Finishing Support Operator (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – July 16, 2018
Can't trust any of the co-workers or the union at the Yerke's site. Management doesn't listen to the workers concerns. Run the plant very short staffed majority of the time. Push for numbers not quality.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – July 11, 2018
I enjoyed every role I had in my 25 years at DuPont. I learned a lot of processes and had a high level of responsibility. The people I worked with made going to work easy and fun. I would have liked to have retired from DuPont but the merger with Dow caused a lot of downsizing and sadly, my entire group was let go.
