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

    Pros

    Dematic's industry is booming, our technology helps companies like Amazon, Frito-Lay, Walmart to get things done. It is really amazing to see all the pieces of a warehouse working, the conveyors, the sorters, the AGVs, the multi-shuttles, etc. If you like technology and innovation this is the place to be. People are nice and easy-going. It is a fast-paced environment and you never get bored.

    Cons

    This company is not perfect (which one is it?), it suffers from the same fast-paced environment we live in. Since we need to get things done, sometimes we don't see areas of improvement or ways of streamlining processes.

    The age of the population is mixed, which is good but also sometimes doesn't help, you may find young colleagues that want to conquer the world with bright ideas and, on the other hand a guy that has been with the company for 30+ years and is ready for retirement, hence new things take time to digest. This is sometimes frustrating.

    There are really great leaders and others that just got promoted because of time served, you know, old school. You have to be patient.

    Advice to Management

    While the KION acquisition was OK, we are far from being fully integrated and this doesn't really help. It only exacerbates the 'silo' mentality.

    Communicate! Communicate! Communicate! Satellite offices are in total oblivion. We are in a globalized industry, please stop being so Grand Rapids centric. Expand your horizons, open you eyes, there is life beyond Michigan!

    To the new CEO, please shake this place. Challenge the status quo and if possible, please eliminate red tape and negative people. There are managers that don't listen, are just bottlenecks or complete ghosts/strangers that don't delegate and want to call all the shots, how did they get there? We are not in the 80's anymore.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dematic (Grand Rapids, MI) in May 2013.

    Interview

    One telephone call and one on-site interview with a group of managers. The on-site interview was a rather casual conversation and very interactive. The phone interview was a set of beginner questions and conducted by managers who were not experts in my field.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked how I would solve various issues they were currently facing. The questions were rather open ended and allowed me to provide unique insight and innovation to solve problems. The interview was not one of those rehearsed question/answer sessions rather, it was a conversation which enabled me to highlight my expertise.   Answer Question
