KMCO was a place of new experience daily, if you were a outside the box thinker you enjoy the day to day work. Sometimes very physical place to work and enjoyable place to work for many years. Close to home, a place that impowered the employees

Safety is the lowest priority. Management drives sales more then respect for their employees. CEO is a joke. Unprofessional, and underpaid employees. Long hours.
Cons
Unsafe, underpaid

It was a decent place to work. The direct management was really good to work for but above that I have my own opinion about that. But overall it was a good place.

This place is really going downhill. Anybody with any competency is running from it. A culture of lies and penciling in test results and production records just to get the product out of the door. Lots of stuff coming back on them because it was just made so very badly.
Pros
none
Cons
Bad managers, who are thieving, lying, nut cases.

It is a not stop working day here at KMCO. A great group of guys to work with. This is a manual plant so you will turn valves and pull on chain valves on a daily basis.

Small older company that struggles to adapt. Old school mentality with average to sub-par management in key positions with poor leadership skills. Solid E.R.T. team.

New management constantly. Revolving door. Vey little automated, 80% manual. Very nasty and dirty work conditions. Safety is not first and foremost out there.

Good first operator job. Lots of hands on training. Everything is kind of in the Stone Age. But you learn a lot. Pay is pretty good. Top out is by time served. Management does not care about the operators at all.
Pros
Good experience, good pay, good benefits
Cons
Management is terrible, if you smoke cigarettes you'll fit right in with the buddy buddy management

Big wheelers at the very top need to see that the biggest issues are due to bad management! The operators, logistics, rail car personnel are not the problem, we are hard working folks working for a plant that seems to be like a roller coaster. No one is held ACCOUNTABLE majority of the times, safety and supervisors turns their head as long as you don't say anything. A bad human resource, plant, logistics, and manintence can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation. TIme for another change! Start with management!
Pros
Hands are awesome folks to work with.
Cons
Human resource is not good at all!

It keeps you on your toes. Physically and mentally also depends which department you are in. Learn interesting ways of the operation of a chemical plant and meet new and interesting people everyday.
Pros
Get a hour lunch break and do whatever you in that hour.
Cons
Never know when you get to eat if on time or If you will be able go home on time as well.

Work load and pay do not equal, the "good ole boy" is still in effect here. If you can handle operator error and constantly being thrown under the bus this is the place for you. check is there every 2 weeks

A small plant that has potential to be a very great place to retire from. a few management tweaks here or there and this company could be trending up

Safety needs to get better. I don't feel like the company really cares about each member of the team. They will have us complete task at night to avoid things the upper management will see in the day. We report near misses and things to be fixed and nothing happens.
Pros
Company events are good.
Cons
Safety

I was an operator on two reactor units. I made sure safety was our number one goal every day at work. i did walk throughs on my units at every shift change. Transferred to and from my two reactor units in a timely matter. Once my batch was complete we transferred the final product to either a railcar or a storage tank. When transfer was complete i submitted all paper work to supervisor and repeated the same steps in order according to SOP.
