    Unprofessional HR department and overrated word of mouth about company

    IT Position (Current Employee)
    Irving, TX

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

    ConsLeave 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Run For Your Life - Certified Labs, Mantek, Chemsearch, Parts Master ect....

    Sales, BDM (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsThey do sell good quality products

    ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementKill yourself.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unprofessional treatment of potential job candidates

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    If you want to work with inexperienced telephone sales people with lots of turn over, well this is the place for you.

    Account Represnetative (Former Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsLaid 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.

    ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementNone

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor management, will terminate you randomly.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNice lower level coworkers that deserve better.

    ConsMicromanagement, 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 Senior ManagementGet 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    So bad I'm afraid I will be recognized for writing this

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey only fire people some times and only if they're unpopular enough with the right clique, so if you can stomach the place you can stay forever.

    ConsSo bad that I'm actually afraid to write anything here. All I will say is I worked there for many years longer than I should have. This place is so hostile you will need therapy to get through your days until you can land another job, particularly if your skin is the wrong color or you are different in ANY way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSooner or later you'll just be left with people who really can't work anywhere else.

    A small chemical company with narrow minded leadership.

    IT Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsThe company is persistent. Old fashioned. Located next to Las Colinas. Steady work. Thrifty enough to rarely need to layoff.

    ConsCheap, Top Heavy in Management, Abuse of employees goes overlooked by HR, infrastructure is pitiful. Raises and salaries remain stagnant. Development of staff is non existence. Zero training on how to be Good Managers. People promoted through attrition rather than skill.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate the staff by embracing them as the company family. Develop and promote staff. be good stewards of the companies funds.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    You would think a worldwide company would stay up to date.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsNCH is a very well established company, been in business for 90 years. Started as a family owned business and still is. Has manufacturing and sales offices all over the world. Many employees have been with the company forever, the majority of the work force at the headquarters in Irving are over the age of forty.

    ConsNCH refuses to update software and supply the tools needed in order to do your job effectively. The majority of the furniture in this building is over 50 years old. They can squeeze a penny so hard Licoln squeals. Every year at annual meeting for employees they annouce how well all of the divisions have done profit wise. Then when annual reviews and raises (less than 3 months later) come around, they proclaim they are unable to give you more than a minisucal amount. If you don't get the money you want coming in you will never get it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOnly lie to your employees once either when you announce how well you are doing or when raises come around.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
