    I worked at Ashland full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Between 2003 and 2014 Ashland transformed itself from a holding company to a specialty chemical company. As of 2017, the transformation is complete. Financial stable company.

    Cons

    Stodgy, conservative company. Not very entrepreneurial.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks. Empower your employees

    Treasury Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Covington, KY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ashland (Covington, KY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and about a week later received an email for a phone interview. After the interview, the interviewer stated that they would follow up with an email after they interviewed the rest of the applicants and chose the ones that would move forward. The day after the interview, I received an email for another interview for the next day with 2 other members from the treasury department. Both interviews went really good and they stated that they would get back to me next week.
