    Communications Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Morton Salt (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    A few weeks after applying, I had a fairly standard phone interview with the recruiter. I was then invited to the HQ for 4 back-to-back interviews, which were more conversational and focussed on my experience and the team's needs. I was impressed by everyone's openness, expertise, and excitement over the work they do and the direction the company is headed in. I left with a good understanding of the role and the various challenges and opportunities.
    The recruiter was great and contacted me the same day with feedback. I received a competitive offer within the week but had to decline, as a more senior role opened up elsewhere.

    Human Resources Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Morton Salt (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    - several phone interviews with standard questions, some behavioral, followed by in-person interviews with HR and several client groups
    - Morton needs to be mindful of its employment brand. The follow-up was ABOMINABLY poor. Sometimes how you treat the finalist candidates tells more about a company than how you do the one to whom you offer the role. I received ZERO follow-up after the interview and had to email the recruiter 10 days after the interview because I had heard nothing. I received ZERO response to that email, which is UNHEARD of. Even if you're not choosing that candidate, respect their interest and TREAT PEOPLE RIGHT. I can tell you from interviewing with several reputable companies, I was given prompt and thoughtful follow-up from all companies BUT Morton. This is NOT the employment brand you want to create. A network is how you build your culture, brand, and ee value proposition after all. I left feeling that they are impersonal and do not care about people, which is not what you want for your HR department for sure!! In the end, I had to email yet AGAIN to get a final response vs. them doing so out of courtesy. And the whole process took well over a month and a half, which may speak of their overall business decision-making. Salt is much more interesting than I would have imagined and I interviewed with some passionate clients but HR needs to get back to basics!!

    Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Morton Salt (Fairport Harbor, OH).

    Interview

    Morton Salt interviewed at my college and also put on an interview prep class which I attended. I originally was not scheduled for an interview, but was desperate for a job and went to the prep class. I came early and spoke to the instructor who was also the HR Manager for the corporation. It turned out he was an old coal miner and I had just finished my co-op at a mine in West Virginia. We hit it off and he offered me an interview on the spot. I had no idea salt even came from underground mines. Previous experience, a degree, and willingness to learn are very important to engineering positions at Morton Salt.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    New hires out of school, at that time, had no chance of negotiation. I believe this still holds true. Morton is pretty set in their ways.
