    I have been working at Donaldson Company full-time (more than an year)


    Majority of employees have been with company 15 plus years. Best training and values I have seen in a company. Great advancement opportunities mostly in the US but internationally as well.


    salary was low for the position. Benefits were standard. Company was a bit over structured for my taste. Felt that a 50k position should be paid closer to 70k.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    increase saleries a bit to retain new employees.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Donaldson Company.

    Interview Details

    They begin with a phone screen interview with the typical questions. We discussed pay, which fit within my guidelines for taking a new role. Once I made it to a face to face, the questions were probably the easiest I had ever seen. Mainly, describe your background, success, etc.

    All was going well until the recruiter called me and mentioned the position paid below what they initially indicated....well below. I politely declined further conversation. This seems to be very typically for Donaldson and well known in the Midwest. They underpay compared to comparable roles, and believe you are fortunate to work for Donaldson.
