    I have been working at Calumet Specialty Products full-time for more than a year


    Never Boring, Lots to do, Lots of chance to shine and stay challenged


    Too many egos and good old boy politics on a local level. People get too silo'd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to communicate across department lines better. Start creating a teamwork attitude and less of an out for yourself attitude.

    Senior Process Engineer (Shreveport LA) Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Shreveport, LA
    Anonymous Employee in Shreveport, LA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Calumet Specialty Products in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.
