I have been working at CP Kelco full-time (Less than a year)
Great people & very well managed. Lots of uncommon perks for a manufacturing plant. A great atmosphere and a very well run plant.
I can't think of any
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work. You have developed a great plant and one of the best places to work I've heard of.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at CP Kelco (San Diego, CA) in February 2015.
Just as a background, I am currently employed at a very good company with very good mentors. I am just interviewing to see what else is out there.
One Interviewer kept on trying to intimidate me telling me that if I am looking a 9 to 5 job, the job is not for me and that they had hired someone from my company and they utterly failed at CP Kelco. Leadership needs to understand that if they connect with people's "why they do things" they will have employees working with blood, sweat and tears, pouring their hearts and souls into their job, to make them successful. If not, they will work for your money, 40 hours a week. If you are getting, or have, a lot of 40-hour week employees, that tells a lot about your poor leadership.
I am unimpressed by leaders that pretend to be "tough". I am under no financial stress and I am very happy with my life. Why would I want to work with a highly competent jerk? People will only work for your money if you are a bad leader. Stop blaming employees of being incompetent or lazy. How people rate you as a leader and as company tells a lot about your ability to lead.
