I worked at Fort Dearborn full-time (More than 3 years)RecommendsNegative OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsNegative OutlookApproves of CEO
Well structured company. Everyone works hard and takes ownership of their work. Employees are kind to one another and eager to help each other.
Not a lot of room to move up unless you work at a plant. Don't count on a bonus or pay raise. They haven't given them in a few years. Lots of people have left in the last few years because of poor pay.
Advice to Management
Employees look to be rewarded by pay and bonuses. I hope that in the raises are given to more people and that hard work is recognized.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Fort Dearborn (Elk Grove, IL) in November 2012.
The hiring process is usually conducted on one weekend where prospective candidates will come and spend the day at the corporate office. Here they will receive a tour of the facility and also have 4 interviews with Sr MGMT. The interviews are based on high school accomplishments, college accomplishments, future goals, strengths and weaknesses.
