    Valued people, opened avenues for employees to participate in all aspects of the business. Worked very diligently to maintain fair wages as compared to similar companies in the immediate area. The company has invested a tremendous amount of money to expand.


    A lot of changes in personnel have occurred. Very small footprint without a lot of opportunities outside the location that you are employed.

    Advice to Management

    None - great focus, profit, and building for the future

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Compass Minerals (Overland Park, KS) in February 2015.


    Had an initial phone screening with member from HR. I advanced to next stage and had a phone interview with the hiring manager for the position. I then was told I had advanced to the in-person stage. I traveled out for an in-person interview and everything went great. I met with four to five individuals, all of whom gave positive feedback. I returned home and got a call four to five days later saying the position had been put on hold and did not meet the business needs at this time.
