You get to work with a lot of great people! The company overall is very lean which can be frustrating but it also means you get to work on a wide variety of projects. It's a good challenge and you develop experience.
The hours necessary to meet expectations mean longer days. You will find a lot of frustrated people who feel unappreciated and unhappy with upper management's lack of communication and poor leadership. The company continually loses talented individuals without understanding why.
Advice to Management
There is a strong need for better communication. Upper management needs to provide mentoring and career guidance for younger employees. Management should also think on a more global scale (instead of just what's best for Minneapolis) and implement better reporting systems.

- No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Valspar (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2015.
Standard phone screen interview on my experiences with lean and six sigma tools. The interviewer was polite and friendly. It sounds like a good company to work for. They are not only implementing six sigma in manufacturing but in the finance area and in information technology. After a phone screen, they will select candidates for on site interviews then make an offer.
- Give me a specific example about an analysis that you completed using six sigma. Answer Question
