    I worked at Brenntag (More than 5 years)


    Company has great pay and great co-workers. Upper management kept us informed of new developments and long term goals of the company. Has defined pension plan as well as matching 401k. Year-end bonus generous. I would not have left had I not moved out of state.


    It would be great if they had job postings in their employee website so you could see what other job opportunities were available.

    Logistics and Supply Chain Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brenntag (Pittsburgh, PA).


    After scheduling an interview on short notice, (I.e. same day), I was left waiting in the lobby for nearly 30 minutes (1st red flag). The interviewer had me do a "mock" cycle count with him, which I'm guessing was more of a receiver count as material had clearly arrived that day (count have been an on-hand count) (2nd flag). Towards the end of the interview, where the discussion turned towards benefits, the interviewer actually made the comment "that's a big nut" in regards to my current salary. (Flag 3, and glad no offer was extended). Company seemed like they were growing, but I'm not sure that I'd want to work in an environment where you're expected to be oncall 24/7 making an entry level salary.
