Buckman – Why Work For Us?

But when that chemical is supported by our rigorously trained industry experts and complemented with the highest-quality products, the latest smart technology and advanced data analysis, then it becomes a solution. Buckman is completely committed to helping you succeed, regardless of the challenges facing you, the industry you operate in or your location in the world. We’re all focused on helping your operation improve productivity, increase profitability and ensure safety, compliance and sustainability. We are Chemistry, connected.

 Since 1945, the Buckman family and its many associates have given time and money back to our communities. Mrs. Mertie Buckman, the first lady of Buckman, personified the word philanthropist. She was a community leader who gave her time and resources to teaching literacy – a spirit of caring that she passed on to this company. Following in her grandmother’s footsteps, Kathy Buckman Gibson formed the Community Relations Advisory Council in 2009, with support from members in the U.S., Brazil, South Africa and our now-CEO, Junai Maharaj. Soon thereafter, our global BuckmanCares initiative was established.

BuckmanCares was founded on three key focus areas: health and human services, environmental stewardship and education, with an emphasis on youth. Its mission is to ensure Buckman remains a responsible corporate citizen, by encouraging and supporting the volunteer efforts of our associates and dedicating resources to our focus areas.

    I have been working at Buckman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I started interning at Buckman right out of college and knew a month into it that I wanted to be here full time. The culture is truly phenomenal. Everyone is friendly and helpful. My team has taught me so much! I couldn't have asked for a better job.

    Cons

    I don't have any complaints. The job is fast-paced and exciting. But that is a good thing.

    Very good experience in the interviews. I felt respected and valued and I felt the people were very honest and transparent answering my questions as well. I had a chance to get to know a little about Buckman, loved the work environment and enjoyed the people I met.
