    I have been working at Eastman Chemical full-time


    I have been working with Eastman for over 20years in from entry level engineering to management. I have had opportunities to travel, learn and grow personally and professionally. The training and support given to the employees is superb. Throughout my career, I have given freedom and support to pick up the ball and run. Compensation is above average for the area. Eastman employees pride themselves on being ethical and hardworking.


    Recent changes in benefits have the net effect of a pay cut. Senior leadership seems out of touch with the manufacturing employee and come across as egomaniacs. . We are a manufacturing company not a sales and marketing company but doesn't feel that way sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Over the years, senior leadership has changed from home grown to store bought. Along with that has come great commercial success but there is growing rift between the business leaders and the manufacturing world. Its a tough balance I know but there is lots of talk about people being our number one resource but feel like it only applies to those outside of manufacturing. How about showing some more humility in leadership?

    Interview Details

    Had an initial interview on my college campus with two recruiters. They basically asked me to back up my resume, explain things on it, etc. Got invited to an on-site interview. We stayed the night in Kingsport and they took me and 2 other students out to dinner. The next day, we had breakfast with a host and they talked a little about the job, etc. Then each potential hire gave a short presentation, had a panel interview with about 6 employees of eastman, and then we took a tour of the plant.
