    Former Employee - Global Implementation Team Lead for ERP Systems in Irving, TX

    I worked at NCH (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Steady and frugle, yes that is the only pro.

    Cons

    Technology, lack of budget, poor management, unqualified directors with egos who take every opportunity to fail to lead, inspire or communicate effectively with their teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible, allow work from home, quit watching clocks, respect your employees. Get some some management training for those IT managers

    Former Employee - Receiving Supervisor in Irving, TX

    I worked at NCH full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    None really.... We were off on weekends? That's about it. There was never really anything good going on there.

    Cons

    I was a receiving supervisor at the Irving plant. I was terminated with no cause. I was trained for two days and thrown out in my own. My team wasn't allowed to work overtime but everyone else did, putting us constantly behind. When I filed for unemployment they lied and am said I had been written up multiple times with no proof. Because I never had a reprimand. They told the unemployment office I wasn't qualified to do my job... I was there 13 months. Worst company ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should all be let go.

    I have been working at NCH full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good earning potential if you don't live in a declining area

    Cons

    Horrible management, awful marketing, non-existent knowledge of trends
    Company is doomed to fail. No interest in employee input. Disengaged account managers due to management. No hope in sight. Run!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get lost! Marketing should never run a company. Your eyes and ears are the people on the street not the incompetent marketing clowns sitting behind their desks.

    Pros

    If you can get in and deal with management then you might be ok.

    Cons

    Leave applicants hanging for long periods of time then when they finally turn down applicants they say they are going with more qualified applicants but I have a friend in the company that says they usually fill from within or with cheaper applicants to save money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to turn down qualified applicants at least have the decency to be truthful and let them know you never intended to hire someone from the outside, you only posted the position because you had to in order to fill it with a pre-selected internal applicant. Sending out a standard email stating that you are going with more qualified applicants without even looking at the resume or qualifications is bad business.

    Pros

    They do sell good quality products

    Cons

    Management and corporate structure is a joke. They promise the world and don't deliver on anything. They will not give you the pay that you were told or contracted to receive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kill yourself.

    Unprofessional treatment of potential job candidates

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at NCH

    Pros

    Great way to polish up on phone interview and practice face to face interview

    Cons

    Hear how you are treated like family, blah blah.. Do not have common courtesy to contact you or respond to status of interview. Met with 2 people that couldn t consistently answer questions regarding compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not leave people hanging in the wind. If you have chosen another candidate then at least send email. Ignoring is very unprofessional

    Former Employee - Account Represnetative in Irving, TX

    I worked at NCH full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back working atmosphere in the telephone sales department - certified labs, chemsearch, etc
    No actual quota, just get some sales during the week and they leave you alone, get off early on Fridays alot.

    Cons

    They give the good account to the new people to fool them into thinking it is an easy job to make commissions, pay is so low you cannot survive, if you good in the sales dept they do not want to move you out of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None

    I worked at NCH full-time

    Pros

    Nice lower level coworkers that deserve better.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, finger pointing by management, you'll need therapy working here, no training at all, nightmares every night you fear that you didn't get work done or if you got too much done, your work will be deleted (back it up on USB please...), unreasonable 12 hour a day work demands at one office 7 days a week, harassment that won't be resolved by HR, many liars who will make you look bad behind your back, political environment, dysfunctional, and low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of people who are hurting your corporate culture, people can learn what they know easily so don't use that as an excuse. I miss my coworkers and even my job, but until the people that hurt the company are gone I'll just take myself elsewhere. Thank you for the opportunity.
