I worked at Ashland full-time (More than 8 years)
Learned new skill set on my own through working on projects.
Micromanaging is nonexistent.
Sometimes yearly bonus based on performance of the business was good.
Some great professional people in the org that I enjoyed working with. A lot of them are now gone due to the restructures the last few years.
No mentoring or skill development at all. Constant restructure and threatening that positions would be ending. Which created a negative, petty environment among the department. Such a shame because the job was great.
Advice to Management
I encountered inappropriate behavior ( gossip & insults) from a couple of people that managed over me. I was told I was the top performer but not given any incentive to grow just treated as a work horse that could be replaced.
Advise look into departments with dead weight and actually be managers get rid of those who cannot even show up for work. It's an insult to those who take the initiative. I experienced a co-worker who gloated for almost eight months that she did not do any work and watched this person get away with it. Very disheartening and a waste of payroll.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Ashland (Covington, KY) in April 2017.
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.
