    Finally Omnova is making changes that make sense, the reduction of the "Global Footprint" is the right direction for the contracting business segments. Supporting the new up and coming potential business in the Engineering Surfaces market is also another step in the right direction.


    It took 3 years to recognize the over sized footprint, the spend on IT is outweighed by the spend on office supplies....not kidding either.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the savings from Calhoun on the plants that need the updated capacity and that have the potential to add additional contribution margin.

    Entry Level Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mogadore, OH
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at OMNOVA Solutions (Mogadore, OH) in May 2012.


    Applied through a school advisor at akron u and was contacted by the HR team within days for an interview. The HR was very friendly and made everything to make me feel comfortable. The first 10 minutes was about the company and what they do. The second half was about the resume - hitting every point in depth. So the main trick is to know your resume!
