    I have been working at Calumet Specialty Products full-time (More than 5 years)


    Excellent benefits such as company match 401K, dental, health, vision; company events are well done; people are great to work with on the whole with only a few exceptions


    Growing into a typical Corporate America operation, having gone from less than 500 employees to well over 5,000 in last 10 years. That brings less profit sharing, smaller bonuses, less recognition of great work, etc. Those at the manager level are more concerned with their own goals than helping their employees achieve theirs. Sometimes the work you do and the accomplishments you have work more against you than for you. If you are good at your job, may get stuck doing it forever. No clear promotion structure for most.

    Advice to Management

    Put your employees over your own personal goals Stop having so many closed door meetings and pull your groups together for more collaborative efforts

    Senior Process Engineer (Shreveport LA) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Shreveport, LA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Calumet Specialty Products (Shreveport, LA) in June 2013.


    intial phone screen, immediate on site interview. no site tour, however. i dont know if it was some sort of hidden test, but they offer no guidance as to where the "front door" or entrance is. thankfully i heard i passed that test with flying colors. :) on site interview was going well, at first although we were off schedule due to me having to fill out a packet (no kidding) a packet or questions which included background checks, employer application etc. supposedly they were having major issues occuring during the interview which may account for the seemignly disorganized manner of the interview. also, i am rather light skinned as an african american with straight hair and the african americans on site seemed to be offended by my "white looking" presence. why do i say this? well, it was all good on the phone screen, but as soon as they saw what i looked like, i could feel the tension. all in all, it seems like a rather disorganized plant, with some cultural issues although i will say it was one of the most diverified plants i have encountered. so it wasnt all bad. had i received an offer, i honestly do not know if i would have accepted it.
