    Pros

    Money, benefits, they match 4% and give you 4%

    Cons

    Shift work, slow advancement. Slow promotions

    Advice to Management

    Actually promote people on the performance, not the way you can answer questions that have nothing to do with the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DSM in August 2017.

    Interview

    Made contact after receiving job posting from college. Communicated via e-mail providing all required documents.

    First interview was with one of the HR staff, discussed the role of the intern and the tasks that I would be responsible for. Held a very professional conversation discussing the roles of HR and the things that the company produced.

    During second interview, had similar conversation with another HR member, even talked about how the company was busy in preparation for a visit from many of the corporate stakeholders. (I did my research and noted this information from the corporate website. Interviewer was surprised that I knew that and did my research) Was told next step if selected was to make contact with temp agency in charge of onboarding.

    After two weeks contacted department via e-mail and was told that they offered the position to a female that was able to provide them with the 40 hours a week that they were looking for. Even though they posted it as a part time position. That and they informed me that the person that was offered the position was able to be in the position for 12 months like they were looking for.

    Personally it seemed more like they were looking to hire contract employee instead of an intern.
