    I have been working at DONAN full-time (More than 3 years)


    The personality of the CEO permeates throughout the company. This means that it does feel like family, objectives are focused, and employees that are naturally driven will fit in (and do) well.

    All in all though it is a good place to work as an engineer. Leadership has their head in the right place and the work/life balance for engineers is hard to beat.


    Like any group of people there are individuals that do not seem to be 100% on board with the culture. There are also decisions that are made that can be hard to understand from the bottom. That all comes with working within a corporate structure.

    Forensic Engineer Interview

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at DONAN (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.


    Apply online and if they like your resume, they set up a screener interview with an HR person in their Kansas office. If you pass the screener, then you talk to the Regional Manager by phone. The company doesn't have physical offices outside of their corporate office in Kansas so there are several phone calls rather than in-person interviews.
